She runs around trying to get to the hiding spot (which I can't even get to) and runs the fence. No barking or whining. I have not brought the cat inside to see how they get along yet. She does like the cat food, which she go to once. Please note that my cat is declawed and is used to being around large dogs and really doesn't care too much about them. Other cats may scratch Brandy, putting her in her place. Brandy has a ton of puppy energy and really needs a very active family to give her energy a place to go. Preferably with another dog as she is very playful with my other dogs. She loves squeaky toys and bones to chew on. She is has a happy personality and snuggles and plays and very very curious. We currently feed Sportmix Wholesomes Chicken Meal and Rice (4 stars) as per www.dogfoodadvisor.com along with pro-bioitics and immune support supplements.

JESSE is a happy, active boy, who likes to tell you how he is feeling, he loves to chase the other dogs and play with toys. He loves cuddles and having his ears scratched and belly rubbed. JESSE is a young boy and so would benefit from an active family who likes the outdoors and will take him on road-trips and adventures, to let him enjoy the fresh air and the sights, sounds and smells the work has to offer. JESSE does need training and will need a family that has time and the dedication to teach him both basic and advanced obedience. We suggest that families work on training JESSE themselves so that they all can learn each others body language, personality and the family be able to set boundaries and expectations. We do not have cats at the rescue so we are unable to say how any of our dogs would react around cats. We currently feed SPORTMIX Wholesomes Chicken Meal & Rice Formula, a 4* (a per www.dogfoodadvisor.com) GRAIN FREE food along with pro-bioitics and immune support supplements listed on the available dogs page!

Rescue Me ID: 16-09-13-00219BALTO (male)

German Shepherd    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Personality: High Energy 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    BALTO is neutered, core vaccines, rabies, de-wormed, heart-worm and tick disease tested negative and micro-chipped. He has an estimated date of birth of 16th July 2013 and he weighs around 70 pounds. BALTO is a big handsome, gentle giant. He likes to settle down in his new environment, take in the changes and then within a few days he will be hunting down toys and either keeping himself occupied playing with his toys, or bringing them to you so you can join in. BALTO is very affectionate and if he isn't getting his ears scratched or belly rubbed he is lay by the chair or sofa depending on where I am sat. BALTO is very laid back, at the ... (Read More)rescue he lives amongst the other rescue dogs ranging from 4 pound to 95 pounds, he actually has a 4 pound chi mix who is infatuated by him and follows him everywhere. If he is eating, she will go to eat. If he is stood up, she will stand on her back legs to reach him, when he is lay down she will lick his face. Although at times he does get irritated all it takes is a little growl and she backs off and he settles back down, but it takes a lot for him to get to where he will growl at her and it is then a gentle growl. BALTO is very responsive and will be very easy and fun to train. He does like to counter-surf and has at one point got into the microwave and taken my meal out and ate it. I am not sure if it was just a fluke that when he jumped up his paw hit the button and the door opened, much to his delight, or if he is that smart and knew what to do. All I know is that when I went outside, my meal was cooking and when I came back in - it was gone lol. BALTO will need a family that has time to spend teaching him his boundaries and their expectations, a family that has time to train him in basic and advanced obedience training, which I do not think will take long, but just sets the standard and helps both humans and BALTO understand each other's body language and personalities which help with bonding and living in harmony together. An active family is needed as BALTO is a big boy and he needs to be able to release the physical and mental energy and there is nothing better than road trips to exciting places allowing him to take in the sights, sounds and smells the world has to offer. BALTO is available for adoption through Give a Dog a Home, German Shepherd Dog Rescue for an adoption fee of $500. This fee is not negotiable and is used to cover the rescue costs of pulling, vetting, health certificate, any transport fee's we incur, monthly preventatives, supplements, food and anything else that is needed.

Rescue Me ID: 16-09-06-00089Princess Buttercup (female)

German Shepherd    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    2 years ago I adopted a Female German Shephard that was rescued from a high Kill shelter in Georgia. She has been very wonderful with all people and kids except for the fact that we still haven't been able to break her of the habit of jumping. Friday we had an incident that we feel we need to find a rescue/rehab for my dog whom I have loved and has protected my family. Friday a small 10 pound dog lightly nipped at Princess. Princess (my German Shephard) was on leash with my husband. Princess lunged at the dog; my husband was able to pull her back keeping the small dog out of harm's way. Princess then lunged with all her strength and my ... (Read More)husband could not keep her back. I watched in horror as I could see my dog decisively chose hind quarters to entrap in her jaws and then picked up and shook the small dog until its intestines were visible. It took minutes of yelling and trying to pry her jaws open and punching her until she finally stopped. The bottom line is that we could not control her. We consulted with the veterinarian whom said she would not euthanize 'yet'. Her opinion was that unless the bond has been broken we should continue with her as we have and if 'something else' happens we should definitely consider putting her down at that point. Her other suggestion was a rescue or rehab if we feel we can't continue ownership. We live in a community with a lot of kids and a lot of dogs. Daily several runners run by with their dogs - Princess always kind of 'freaked out' as people and dogs went by; we always thought she was being protective, but now we are not so sure. We have a 1 year old grandson and have not allowed the dog to be around him. My husband is jumpy putting his hands near her neck to hook her up. I don't trust her; she would not obey and we could not control her. Is there a soul that has no other animals that has time and energy to put into a very loving dog that we feel we can no longer keep? Do you have any advice for us? Is there anyone we can call? Thank you. Laura and Tod Jarvis Kennebunk, ME (Less)

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    PLEASE ENSURE YOU READ ALL THE INFORMATION PROVIDED TO LEARN ALL ABOUT SAGE,HER LOCATION AND ADOPTION OPTIONS. SAGE we believe is a beautiful Anatolian Shepherd. She is spayed, rabies, core vaccines, de-wormed, heart-worm and tick-disease tested negative and micro-chipped, she weighs around 70 pounds and has an estimated date of birth of 28 July 2013 SAGE was very nervous in the shelter and when she first came to the rescue but over time she has started to relax and be a lot happier, rolling around on her back, playing with the other dogs and following me around. SAGE, at first was slightly possessive over her food, but has been happily ... (Read More)eating with the other dogs ok now, but this is something that should be taken note of when taking her home if other pets are there initially to keep them separate at feeding times until they get to know each other and she has settled in. She has never been aggressive, just the warning growl that this is her food and to back off. SAGE gets on great with the other dogs and human and children alike. She does jump up at times when she wants attention but when told 'down' she is responsive, but this is something that will need work, especially if small or young children are around. SAGE will benefit from an active family that has the time to work with her in basic and advanced training, she is very responsive and so this should not be difficult and a lot of fun. We encourage families to train the dog together so that everyone can learn each others personalities and body language and expectations and boundaries can be set. SAGE rides great in the car, she is happy to either lie down and relax or look out of the window. She would greatly benefit from going on lots of adventures, hiking, camping, trial walking and such, letting her put her senses to work and take in the many sights, sounds and smells the world has to offer We currently feed a 4* (a per www.dogfoodadvisor.com) GRAIN FREE food and she does well on it. We do not have cats at the rescue so we are unable to say how she would react around cats. SAGE is available for adoption through Give a Dog a Home, German Shepherd Dog Rescue for an adoption fee of $350. This fee is not negotiable and is used to cover the rescue costs of pulling, vetting, health certificate, transport from Texas to Maine, monthly preventatives, supplements, food and anything else that is needed.

Rescue Me ID: 16-08-29-00527KEN (male)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    KEN is a handsome black beauty whom we think is a Black Mouth Cur mix. He has an estimated date of birth of 21 August 2013 and weighs around 70 pounds. He is neutered, rabies, core vaccines, lepto vaccine, de-wormed, heart-worm tested negative and micro-chipped. KEN was the only male from a litter of 8 and he has grown up around all the dogs in the rescue. He is great with other dogs and loves to play with his siblings still here at the rescue, HAYLEIGH, JERSEY and SCARLETT. KEN is a very affectionate boy and it is a competition between him and JERSEY who can wag their tail and their bodies the hardest when they see me. KEN can be ... (Read More)cautious upon initial greeting but he soon warms up and although of course loves treats, he is happy to just get lots of tummy rubs, ear scratches and love. Although pretty well mannered, KEN does jump a little when he gets excited and he does need basic and advanced obedience training. He is very quick to learn and eager to please. KEN would benefit a family that has the time to work with him to gain his trust, to train with him so everyone knows and understands the boundaries and expectations and to love him and give him the wonderful, exciting life that he deserves. KEN is great with children and just wants to share in his love and can be very gentle. We do NOT have cats at the rescue so are not able to comment how he would behave around cats, but he has not shown any kind of prey drive. So any interest would most likely be on a curious level. KEN is very sweet and affectionate and deserves a family that can give him the love and happiness that this stunning girl desires. KEN is available for adoption through Give a Dog a Home, German Shepherd Dog Rescue for an adoption fee of $450.

JOANIE will need a family that ... (Read More)understands not only the physical needs of a young dog, but also the mental stimulation that is required. Throwing a ball in the back yard is not enough for these dogs, they need to be challenged mentally to keep their brain active, which will ensure a happy dog.

We encourage families to train their dogs so that both dog and family can learn expectations and boundaries, whilst learning each others body language and personalities much more creating a stronger understanding and bond.

(Read More)wags her tail so hard that her whole body wags with it - she is extremely affectionate and loving. Although pretty well mannered, JERSEY does jump a little when she gets excited and she does need basic and advanced obedience training. she is very quick to learn and eager to please, although at first she can be a little wary of new people, but once she has decided that you are trustworthy she will love you like no other. JERSEY would benefit a family that has the time to work with her to gain her trust, to train with her so everyone knows and understands the boundaries and expectations and to love her and give her the wonderful, exciting life that she deserves. JERSEY is great with children and just wants to share in her love and can be very gentle. We do NOT have cats at the rescue so are not able to comment how she would behave around cats, but she has not shown any kind of prey drive. So any interest would most likely be on a curious level. JERSEY is very sweet and affectionate and deserves a family that can give him the love and happiness that this stunning girl desires. JERSEY is available for adoption through Give a Dog a Home, German Shepherd Dog Rescue for an adoption fee of $250. If you would like to start the adoption process, please go to the application and complete, submit the form. Please ensure you tell your references that we will be contacting them. The process generally takes 3-7 days to complete depending on how quickly we are able to communicate with your references. http://www.giveadogahome-sanantonio.org/application.html JERSEY is currently located at the rescue in Sebec, Maine, however, we post in states along the east coast where transport is available.this gives our precious saved souls more exposure and once adopted, we are able to save more dogs from the kill shelters in Texas that get 3 days before they are killed. We love it when families can take a trip to meet the dogs before taking them home, but understand this is not always possible and so work in arranging transport to or closer to families homes. This can come at an additional cost, generally between $100 - $150 and is paid directly to the transport. (Less)

Health: Vaccinations Current 

    This is a 11 month Sable Pure Bred German Shepherd. I got her from the shelter 2 weeks ago. She had good temperment. Harasses our cat but hasn't hurt it. VERY loyal and attaches quickly to a family. Good with my 16 y/o son. Loves my wife more than me. We're attached but not sure if we can handle the protective nature that this dog has. It does growl at visitors but does warm up to them. She is 100 lbs and beautiful. Loves to run.
