German Shepherd    Age: Puppy

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

    Sameer is just a puppy - we estimate him at a year and a half old. This youngster was rescued from the Moreno Valley Shelter in California. Sameer has been in foster and training, so he is crate trained, and mostly housebroken, too! Sameer is very active, and still mouthy - typical GSD youngster. We would like to find a home that has some GSD experience - someone who knows how to raise a GSD pup! Sameer will try to take over if he can - so someone who can provide boundaries and stability would be great. We would like to even see him do some more training - he's a firecracker! Sameer is OK with other dogs upon proper intro, but can be ... (Read More)bossy. We would prefer a home with children no younger than 12. If you are looking for an INDOOR companion for your loving home, and might want to be considered for Sameer - please fill out our online application to get the approval process in motion.

German Shepherd    Age: Puppy

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

    We are pleased to announce that Bella is now looking for her furever home! Bella is a stunning coated girl of about 2 years old. We rescued Bella from the Moreno Valley Shelter in CA several weeks ago. This girl is all puppy energy - she is a handful - but oh so sweet! She obviously has had no training, and lived outdoors, so her manners still need work. Bella gets along fine with larger dogs. We will not be placing her in a home with small dogs or cats. The lucky family that gets to adopt Bella should have some breed experience, and should understand what it takes to raise a GSD puppy. They will also need to commit to continuing her ... (Read More)training with some sort of obedience class. If you would like to be considered for adopting our lovely Bella, you should fill out our online application to get the approval process in motion. We will not schedule meet & greets without an approved app on file.

German Shepherd    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
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! This girl would be a fantastic companion to an active family. If you would like to open your home and heart to the lovely Nadia, you should fill out our online application at: www.miraclegsdmaine.org We don't set up meet & greets etc unless we have an approved app on file.

Rescue Me ID: 17-09-15-00412ARIES (male)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Puppy

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

    ARIES was saved from one of the shelters we work with in Texas with his sister who has since been adopted. He is neutered, rabies, core vaccines, de-wormed and micro-chipped. He has an estimated date of birth of 6 June 2017 and he currently weighs around 25 pounds (at 3 months old). ARIES has been listed at the shelter as a Golden Retriever/Australian Cattle Dog mix however some volunteers thing he has a German Shepherd or Chow look to him. There is no way for us to know what breed he is, so it is important that you decide what breed you think he is. 'Although a big boy, ARIES is still a puppy and will need a dedicated family that has ... (Read More)the time and patience to work and teach him how he is expected to behave. A family who will not get angry or upset if he chews their shoes or has an accident inside. He is a baby and although very smart and responsive, he needs to be guided in his mannerisms and behavior and continue to let his beautiful personality develop. ARIES is a sweet, affectionate, playful, high energy fun loving boy. He is great with other dogs and is always chasing and playing rough with them. He was a little bit of a bully when he first got here, nothing at all aggressive, a lot of that was puppy play and him finding out his boundaries. Since being at the rescue the older dogs have taught him what behavior is not accepted and he has been extremely responsive. He plays great with the other pups that are here. He has learnt to be respectful with the other adult dogs and enjoys their company. He is very affectionate and is always jumping up to get cuddles when I go over to the kennels or at playtime We do not have cats in the rescue so cannot comment on how he would behave around them. ARIES is located in the kennel building with his siblings and other puppy friends and he uses the dog door to go out in the run to do his business. I have not had him in the house so cannot comment if he is house-trained, but the fact he is using the dog door is a good sign, you might just need to teach him to let you know he needs to go outside. 'We do not recommend dog parks for several weeks, if not months, it is so very important for 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. ARIES is young and high energy and so a family with an active lifestyle is a must. He is going to be a large dog and this must be taken into consideration. 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 ARIES 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. ARIES 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 ARIES is located at the rescue in Sebec, Maine.

    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.

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.

Rescue Me ID: 17-07-06-00314Gunner (male)

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: 17-04-15-00206LADY-LANIER (female)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

Personality: High Energy 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    LADY-LANIER was saved from a high kill shelter in Texas by GaDaH and was adopted to a family in CT in November 2014. Sadly the families circumstances have changed and they are no longer able to keep LADY-LANIER and her brother ARMANI who was also adopted from GaDaH in March 2015. Since both dogs have lived together for 2 years and are bonded, it is our intention to try and find them a home together. I will update information as I find out more about them, since I have not seen them for over 2 years. Both dogs are currently in Connecticut, but will be coming to the rescue in Sebec, Maine in the near future. LADY-LANIER is spayed, rabies, ... (Read More)core vaccines, lepto, heart-worm & tick disease tested NEGATIVE and micro-chipped. She has an estimated date of birth of 5 September 2011 and weighs around 55 pounds. It is thought she is a German Shepherd / Cattle dog mix. This is the information provided by her current owner: Lady is approximately 55 pounds and is part German Shepherd and part American Cattle Dog. She is approximately 5 years old, and has high energy. She is very afraid of men, but likes women and children. It will take her time to bond with people, and will most likely bond with the woman of the house. She enjoys having her belly rubbed very much and will give you her paw when asked. She could use more obedience training, but is house trained. ARMANI is neutered, rabies, core vaccines, lepto, heart-worm & tick disease tested NEGATIVE and micro-chipped. He has an estimated date of birth of 12 September 2014 and weighs around 75 pounds. He is a pure-bred German Shepherd Dog.' ARMANI, who is a pure bred young male German Shepherd. The information below was provided by his current owner: Armani is a German Shepherd and approximately 74 pounds. He likes to chew when he is bored. If adopted, the family would benefit from having many chew toys in the house. He is house trained as well. He likes to chase small animals, such as squirrels and birds. He is an excellent watchdog and is very loving. Armani is timid around other dogs but is not vicious in any way. He is a love bug who is content to lay by your side. LADY needs a family that is prepared to work with her on her fear of men. I do not believe she is aggressive towards men, but just avoids them. ARMANI needs mental stimulation for an adult dog to be chewing is due to boredom. Both dogs would benefit from an active family and one that has time to work with them on basic and advanced obedience training. Working together on training will help build trust and create a stronger bond between both dogs and their humans.Road trips and walks / hikes and places where they can take in the sights, smells and sounds the world has to offer is great for any dog. They need mental and physical stimulation, the more exercise and stimulation the less likely any chewing, other than with toys will occur. If you are interested in giving these precious souls a loving, active, full-filled life and home, please go to the website and complete, then submit the adoption application. They are going to be upset, confused and miss their family so we are looking for a family that will commit to working with them and giving them everything they need. We ask for two personal references and a vet reference and once we have been able to contact them it takes just 1-3 days to process and hopefully approve applications. Then we will work on arranging for you to meet the dogs. http://www.giveadogahome-sanantonio.org/adoption-application.html (Less)
