Rescue Me ID: 17-12-08-00417HUGH (male)

German Shepherd    Age: Puppy

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

    HUGH was saved from a high kill shelter in Southern Texas and is currently waiting for transport up to the rescue in Sebec, Maine where he will stay until we find his perfect forever family. HUGH is neutered, rabies, core vaccines, de-wormed, heart worm and tick disease tested negative and micro-chipped. He is estimated to be around 1 year old and weighs approximately 55 pounds. He has been listed as a German Shepherd Dog. We have no way of knowing the exact breed so it is important for you to make your own mind up of what breed of dog he is. 'We do not recommend dog parks for several weeks, if not months, it is so very important for ... (Read More)families and dogs to form a strong bond and get to know each other before exposing them to the potential dangers of dog parks. Although all GaDaH dogs are very well socialized with other dogs, lots of other dogs have not had the benefit of this socialization and do not always know how to play and act with other dogs. You also do not know the control the other families have over their dogs and you should always have a good recall for your adopted dog before going to dog parks. HUGH is full of energy and so a family with an active lifestyle is a huge bonus. He rode great in the car and was happy looking out of the window. He would benefit from lots of road trips and adventures, hiking, trips to the lake, the beach and anywhere that he can burn off some of his energy and enjoy the sights, smells and sounds the world has to offer. He will need a family that understands the importance of training and we encourage all families to work on basic and advanced training as a family so that boundaries and expectations can be set and both HUGH and his humans can learn each others body language and personalities and form a stronger bond and understanding of each other. He has not had a collar or leash on and so leash training will definitely need to be worked upon. A family that understands his initial caution of people and new places, that will help him develop his confidence and trust. HUGH is available for adoption from Give a Dog a Home, German Shepherd Dog Rescue for an adoption fee of $550 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 precious soul a wonderful life, 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 HUGH is currently waiting for transport in Texas up to the rescue in Sebec, Maine where he will be waiting for his forever family to find him. 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 just outside the towns of Dover-Foxcroft and Milo (approx 8 miles) and approx 45 miles from Bangor. There are also lots of hotels, motels, pet friendly accommodations and wonderful camp-sites for the more adventurous families and what a great way to get to know your new best friend. If there are options to arrange transport, we will work with you to make it happen. (Less)

German Shepherd    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered 

    Mingus is an amazing dog that we rescued from a high kill shelter in California. The shelter listed him at 7 but we believe him to be closer to 5. This boy was SO sad at the shelter - he broke everyone's heart. He was a neglected mess with terrible ear infections and nasty skin and coat, but that is all behind him now! We have put a smile on his sweet face! Mingus is in foster, and living with big and small dogs, cats, and chickens. Mingus loves ALL! He is working on his indoor skills - this poor boy always lived outside. He is doing great and is a giant lapdog. This boy deserves THE BEST home. If you would like to adopt Mingus, ...

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

    Sweet pup Loki needs a home! We rescued this guy from the Moreno Valley Shelter in CA a few weeks ago, and he arrived 2 weeks ago. Loki is about a year old, or a bit less. He gets along great with other dogs, and LOVES to play. This is a GSD puppy and he has LOTS of energy so he is going to need some consistency and patience - like with ANY GSD pup. Loki is super duper sweet. He's is very skinny so we are working on fattening him up. Loki is with our friends at Kompletely K-9 Dog Training and Rehabilitation learning to walk on the leash! This is a very good boy, and he will be looking for an active family willing to continue his training - ... (Read More)Loki has never lived indoors! If you are an active home looking for a great hiking buddy, who is very loving, why not open your home and heart to Loki? Please fill out our online application to get the approval process started.

German Shepherd    Age: Young Adult

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

    We can only say WOW about Nadia. We knew she was beautiful, but today she got a special bath from Laurel at Dogwood Animal ReTreat and she looks so much better! Nadia was dumped at the Downey Shelter in CA several weeks ago by her crappy owners, and she was in miserable condition with a ton of hair loss from fleas. After spending some time at the vet, she was much better - and her lovely coat is growing back - she will be stunning in another couple of months! She arrived in Maine last weekend. Nadia is about 4 years old, and holy cow does she love the ball - she is a fantastic athlete. She has an intense face and is very focused - we love ... (Read More)her! She is spending a little time with our friend Kris at Kompletely K-9 Dog Training and Rehabilitation learning to walk on a leash etc. Nadia is good with other dogs, too!

Rescue Me ID: 17-08-15-00259ADA (female)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Puppy

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

    ADA was saved from one of the shelters we work with in Texas. She is spayed, rabies, core vaccines, de-wormed and micro-chipped. She has an estimated date of birth of 26 May 2017. On 24th July at just under 3 months she weighed just over 10 pounds. ADA has been listed as a GSD/ Husky Mix. We have no way of knowing the true breed, it is up to you to decide what you think she breed/s is. Her mother is a petite (35 pound) husky type mix girl White with blue eyes, VICTORIOUS, but there is a chance that ADA is going to be quite a bit bigger than her. 'Ada is still a puppy and will need a dedicated family that has the time and patience to work ... (Read More)and teach her how she is expected to behave. A family who will not get angry or upset if she chews their shoes or has an accident inside. She is a baby and although very smart and responsive, she needs to be guided in her mannerisms and behavior and continue to let her beautiful personality develop. Ada is a sweet, affectionate, playful, high energy fun loving girl. She is great with other dogs and is always chasing and playing rough with her mother Victorious, who is still currently here at the rescue waiting for her forever home. Ada plays great with the other pups that are here. She has learnt to be respectful with the other adult dogs and enjoys their company. She had had little contact with humans when she arrived at the rescue and although is comfortable coming up and snuggling with me, she does take a little while to warm up to strangers. She isn't comfortable getting picked up, or carried around, but there should be not many reasons to do that with her. We do not have cats in the rescue so cannot comment on how she would behave around them. Ada does use the dog door to go outside to do her business although she will not know to let you know if she needs to go outside. Ada is young and high energy and so a family with an active lifestyle is a must. She would benefit from lots of road trips and adventures, hiking, trips to the lake, the beach and anywhere that she can burn off some of her energy and enjoy the sights, smells and sounds the world has to offer. She will need a family that understands the importance of training and we encourage all families to work on basic and advanced training as a family so that boundaries and expectations can be set and both Maddi and her humans can learn each others body language and personalities and form a stronger bond and understanding of each other. She has not had a collar or leash on and so leash training will definitely need to be worked upon. A family that understands her initial caution of people and new places, that will help her develop her confidence and trust. Ada is available for adoption from Give a Dog a Home, German Shepherd Dog Rescue for an adoption fee of $550. 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.

German Shepherd    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Gunner is a stunning 5 year old AKC registered purebred GSD who came to us as an owner surrender when his owner entered rehab. Gunner had a good life for a couple of years, and even was trained in German. Unfortunately, his owner became a substance abuser, and Gunner's life changed. He was not walked or vetted enough, and rarely left the home. Gunner is friendly, but he does need a strong handler with breed experience, who will commit to Gunner's continued training. He is at a trainer's now getting a refresher course, but he has done what he wanted for several years, so he is strong willed. We will want a home with no small children. ... (Read More)Gunner has met kids and is fine, but he is strong as an ox and can be willful, and he is very energetic. Gunner is very scared of things he hasn't experienced, like the vets, and the groomers - he needs to be muzzled in situations like that. The more Gunner explores the world, though, with his new family the better he will be! If you would like to add this amazing dog to your home and heart please fill out our online application at www.miraclegsdmaine.org. We will not schedule meet & greets without an approved app on file. Applicants should expect to have their veterinary references checked to make sure all current and prior pets have been kept up to date on rabies and distemper, have an annual heartworm test, and are on at least 6 mos. of HW preventative per year during the season.

Rescue Me ID: 16-09-11-00457Rufus - MA (male)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Rufus Breed: Catahoula Leopard Mix Age: 4 years +/-; Neutered Male Weight: 50 pounds Dogs: Yes Cats: Yes Kids: 8+ Crate Trained : Yes House Trained : Yes Location: Massachusetts Rufus is a super sweet guy once he settles in and gets comfortable. He's been bounced around quite a bit in his life and it does take him a bit longer to open up and show his true personality, but once he does you'll surely fall for him. He's a fairly active guy that needs to go for his daily outing whether it's a nice walk, jog, bike ride, or hike. He's a good boy in the house, but will let you know if he's not getting enough exercise (he'll pester you until you ... (Read More)give in and bring him for a walk). He comes off as a tough guy, but is really quite a mush and is super afraid of fireworks, gunshots in the distance, any loud scary noises really (he seeks comfort and tends to be super clingy during thunderstorms). Did I mention he loves butt scratches! He is good with most large dogs and is living with two foster sisters, he does seem like he maybe prefers males more but it really depends on the dog. Due to his high prey drive, he is not good with small dogs. The challenge that Rufus has that is causing him to be overlooked is he can be an escape artist. This can be worked with and if he got the exercise and stimulation he craves it would help a ton. Working with a trainer would not only help both Rufus and his new owner learn but it would also help the two of you bond and build a connection. He's also good with kids, but would be best with kids 8 and up because of his enthusiasm for life. If you are interested in adopting Rufus please email SLN2310@yahoo.com and request an application. Once your application has been received and reviewed, you will be contacted via email or phone by one of our volunteers. After your application is approved, the foster parent for the dog you have selected will contact you to answer any questions you may have and determine if that dog is a good match for your family. If you have no particular dog in mind, we will be happy to keep your application on file and notify you if the right dog should come into rescue. Catahoula Rescue of New England is an all-volunteer group. Dogs in our program are fostered by volunteers. The foster homes care for our dogs as if they were their own. All dogs have received vaccinations appropriate to age and are spayed or neutered. Rufus's adoption donation is $250 which includes Rabies, DHLPP, Bordetella, fecal test, heartworm test when appropriate and is on preventative, microchip, and neuter. We do not have a physical shelter, all of our dogs are fostered in individual foster homes across the New England and Canada. (Less)
