Rescue Me ID: 17-02-19-00451WALLIE (male)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Please take the time to read all information provided as it could answer some questions you may have. WALLIE was saved from Texas where most shelters have to kill dogs for space after just 3 days. He is located at the rescue in Sebec, Maine. We post in other states and Canada where our dogs get adopted. WALLIE is neutered, rabies, core vaccines, de-wormed, heartworm & tick-disease tested (Snap 4dx) negative and micro-chipped. He weighs around 65 pounds and has an estimated date of birth of 8 July 2015. WALLIE is a big goofy boy who loves to wrestle and chase with the big dogs but he also plays well with the smaller dogs. He has had some ... (Read More)basic training, but will need a little reminder when he is with his new family. He is very affectionate and loves to come and get his belly rubbed or ears scratched. WALLIE uses the dog door to go outside to play and to do his business. I do not know if he knows to let me know he needs to go out since he always has access to the dog doors. He is a friendly, fun boy who would make a wonderful addition to any active family. We do not have cats at the rescue so cannot comment on how he would behave around them. WALLIE would benefit from an active, fun family that has the time to work with him on his obedience and manners, who would takehim 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 WALLIE 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! WALLIE is available for adoption through Give a Dog a Home, German Shepherd Dog Rescue for an adoption fee of $500.

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)
