Rescue Me ID: 16-12-19-00220LIONEL (male)

German Shepherd    Age: Puppy

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

    Please take time to read ALL information provided as it could answer some questions you may have! LIONEL was saved from Texas where dogs in the kill shelters have 3 days to be saved before they are killed. LIONEL is neutered, rabies, core vaccines, de-wormed, heart-worm and tick disease (SNAP 4DX) tested negative and micro-chipped. He has an estimated date of birth of 9 November 2015 old and at the time of rescue (December 2016) weighed around 51 pounds. LIONEL is very skinny and does need to gain a good amount of weight, which is best to be gradually over time in healthy manner. LIONEL is a young boy that has either been clearly neglected ... (Read More)of human interaction and possibly abused. When he first arrived at the rescue he really didn't know what to do or how to behave. With him being young and still growing into his body he has that goofy-clumsiness about him that just makes him all the more adorable. LIONEL is learning how to behave, but he is going to need a family with lots of love and patience to continue with his learning curve. He is enjoying getting lots of love and attention and when given a bath, although not to happy about he, he stood still and tolerated it. He has a great temperment and with the right training and guidance will make a fantastic family dog. LIONEL gets on great with other dogs of all ages and sizes, we have 8 pound terriers up to 95 pound German shepherds, from 3 mths to 10 years and he is great with all of them respecting their age and size. LIONEL loves to run in the back field and is happy playing with the other dogs or entertaining himself with toys. He is really enjoying exploring and living a happy, safe life. We do NOT have cats at the rescue so we cannot say how he will be with cats. We have dog doors in the house and LIONEL uses them to go out and play or to do his business, he wasn't at all house trained when he arrived, so it would be wise to expect the odd accident until he learns his new routine and to let you know he needs to go outside. LIONEL would benefit from an active, fun family that has the time to work with him on his obedience and manners, who would take him on adventures and road trips and let him explore the sights, sounds and smells the world has to offer. He would benefit from a family that has the time to work with him on basic and advanced obedience training. By working together both LIONEL and his humans can learn each others body language and personality, expectations and boundaries can be set and with self-training a stronger bond formed. 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! LIONEL 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, transport from Texas to Maine, monthly preventatives, supplements, food and anything else that is needed. If you are interested in adopting LIONEL, please follow the link below to the adoption application and complete then submit. It generally takes 2-3 days to process applications, as long as we are able to speak to your vet and references. http://www.giveadogahome-sanantonio.org LIONEL is located at the rescue in Sebec, Maine. We post in various states along the east coast and Canada where we have had lots of successful adoptions to enable more exposure for these beautiful saved souls. Families will need to be prepared to travel to the rescue to meet and take home their new best friend. Sebec is located inbetween two small towns, Dover-Foxcroft and Milo, both approximately 6 miles away and the closest major city is Bangor (approx 45 miles). Many families travel and make a mini-vacation out of the trip and stay in beautiful Maine for the weekend, however, if this is not possible and there are options to arrange transport, we will work with you to make it happen.

Rescue Me ID: 16-12-01-00253RILEY (female)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    PLEASE ENSURE YOU READ ALL THE INFORMATION PROVIDED TO LEARN ALL ABOUT RILEY, HER LOCATION AND ADOPTION OPTIONS. RILEY originally came from a high kill shelter in Texas where dogs generally have just 3 days to be saved before they are killed due to the thousands of stray dogs that sadly are in desperate need of life of the streets and ultimately a home of their own. RILEY was saved be a lady that adopted a GSD from GaDaH two years ago as she couldn't bare to see her killed and so she reached out ot GaDaH to take her into rescue and find her perfect forever home. RILEY is spayed, rabies, core vaccines, heart-worm & tick disease tested ... (Read More)negative (4dx), de-wormed and micro-chipped. She has an estimated date of birth of 29th November 2012 and at the time of rescue December 2016, weighed approximately 63 pounds.%BD'%BD%BD She is a smaller sized girl, in height, but does need to lose some weight. The extra weight will not be too much of a big deal for the east coast winter, however, for her health and well-being she will need to lose weight in the spring/summer. RILEY spent a few days with her foster family in Texas whilst waiting for transport up to the rescue in Sebec, Maine. She was a little grumpy with two of the smaller dogs there. Since being at the rescue she has been great with all of the other dogs. She doesn't like to be jumped on, but who does, so she will growl and let the other dogs know she does not like this. Growling is dogs way of communicating and is not a bad thing. RILEY also likes to be left alone when eating and so if other pets are in the home, feeding her seperately or being monitored is highly recommended. We do not have cats in the rescue so cannot comment on how she would behave around them. RILEY walks well on the leash and loves to ride in the car. She is a laid back affectionate girl who is happy to chill out or go for walks, play outside or really whatever her human is doing. We have dog doors in the house and RILEY uses them to go out and play or to do her business, she has not had any accidents in the house, however, since he has 24 hour access to get outside it would be wise to possibly expect the odd accident until she learns her new routine and to let you know she needs to go outside. RILEY would benefit from an active, fun family that has the time to work with her on her obedience and manners, who would take her on adventures and road trips and let her explore the sights, sounds and smells the world has to offer. By working together both RILEY and her humans can learn each others body language and personality, expectations and boundaries can be set and with self-training a stronger bond formed. RILEY is very smart and responsive and I believe training would be relatively easy and fun. RILEY is a great girl who deserves the best in life, she has so much love and fun to offer. 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! RILEY 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, transport from Texas to Maine, monthly preventatives, supplements, food and anything else that is needed. If you feel that you have the heart and home to give this beautiful girl, please go to our website, under the APPLICATION tab, complete, then submit the APPLICATION. Our process takes around 2-4 days, and ensuring your references are aware that we will be calling, could speed up the process. Once you have been approved, we discuss any questions in regards to the dog you are wanting to adopt, then you complete and submit the contract, make payment and then we can work out the pick up / transport arrangements. Please do NOT submit an application if you are not looking to take home a new best friend within the next few weeks. http://www.giveadogahome-sanantonio.org/application.html RILEY is located at the rescue in Sebec, Maine.

There is a local hotel in Dover-Foxcroft that is pet-friendly (approx 6 miles) and several in Bangor (approx 45 miles). There are also lots of wonderful camp-sites for the more adventurous families and what a great way to get to know your new best friend.

Rescue Me ID: 16-11-27-00342KOLA (male)

German Shepherd    Age: Puppy

Personality: High Energy 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    KOLA was found as a stray by one of our foster families in Texas. He had no micro-chip and no one responded to the found dog posters that were distributed where he was found, nor the lost/found sites. KOLA had something wrong with his right eye so he was taken to the vets for examination. Here it was determined that he had entropion, where the eye lids are too big and eye drops and steroids were prescribed. A week later KOLA had his neuter appointment and not made much improvement with his eye and so I asked the vet to look whilst he was under anesthesia. This vet thought that he most likely had ulcers and stopped the steroid treatment and ... (Read More)prescribed anti-biotics, but also recommended he see an eye specialist. He was scheduled in at the Veterinary Eye Specialist in Texas and it was determined that he has severe dry eye. Unfortunately this is a condition that will not heal itself and even with the treatment that he is currently on, will most likely need some kind of eye therapy (drops) for the rest of his life and monitoring with changes in environment, weather and such. He is currently being given eye medication and is back on a stronger steroid. Dr. Pierson, the eye specialist wants to have him on that for 3-4 weeks and then he will need re-assessing. If all is good and his eye stops producing the mucas and he is opening his eye and not in more pain then that treatment wil continue, but will be adjusted as more of a maintenance. Should this not work there are two options - surgery to try and fix it, or amputation of the eye, which still could be needed if the surgery doesn't work. The specialist report is attached in the photo album on the website for more detailed information. So - KOLA is looking for that special family that has the time to give him his eye drops 2-3 times a day, or as when indicated by the vet. Be able to monitor his eye and take him for check ups and assessments as and when needed and ultimately if the treatment doesn't work, get him the surgery he will need to be pain free, if that is the correction surgery or the removal of the eye that would be something you would discuss with your vet. The correction surgery is not always recommended depening on individual cases. KOLAs diagnosis is basically wait and see what happens, there is no way to predict how he will respond completely, and if surgery will be an option or not, so we will be looking for a family that has the capabilty and time to provide after-care should surgery be needed. KOLA's foster mum has said that his eye is producing less mucas, which is positive but it is still early days having had his specialist appointment on 6th December 2016. KOLA is young and dogs adapt to whatever is thrown in their way and whatever the outcome KOLA is safe, alive and will hopefully soon be healed and pain free. KOLA is a young, handsome boy, who is great with other dogs, all humans he has met and is generally a loving affectionate boy. He walks great on the leash, is responsive to comands and loves to cuddle and have his belly rubbed and his ears scratched. KOLA is neuetered, rabies, core vaccines, de-wormed, heart-worm and tick disease tested and micro-chipped. He has an estimated date of birth of 22 November 2015 and in December 2016 weighed around 45 pounds. Despite the issue with his eye, KOLA is happy, healthy and ready for his new family. He would benefit from an active family that likes to go on road trips and take him to new places where he can explore the sights, smells and sounds the world has to offer. KOLA will need training and we recommend that the family has the time and patience to work with him on basic and advanced obedience. Working together as a family to train him, will not only help with forming a bond, but will allow both KOLA and humans to learn each others body language, personalites, boundaries and expectations. KOLA is available for adoption through Give a Dog a Home, German Shepherd Dog Rescue for an adoption fee of $500. This cost is non-negotiable and is used to cover the cost of vetting, health certificates and the expense of looking after all of our rescue dogs. KOLA is currently located in Texas with his foster family. Transport is available to the east coast, transport costs vary from $150 - $200 and would be the responsibility of the new family. All pre-transport veterinary examinations and health certificate costs will be met by the rescue. If you have the time, patience and heart to want to give this handsome boy a home, please follow the link below to the Adoption Application and complete then submit. It generally takes 2-3 days to process applications as long as we have been able to contact your references and veterinarian. %BD'%BD%BDhttp://www.giveadogahome-sanantonio.org/adoption-application.html (Less)

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)
