Rescue Me ID: 17-04-25-00305Bodie (male)

German Shepherd    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Bodie is about 2 years old and currently weighs about 83 lbs, although he needs a few more. Bodie is a bit undersocialized and new situations make him anxious, so he is spending a couple of weeks with a trainer. Bodie is a quick learner, and is already walking well on the leash and learning to heel. We were amazed at his progress in just a few days. We will be working with him to get him comfortable in various situations he hasn't experienced before - which are many. The world is new to Bodie! Once he finishes his training course, he will stay with one of our fosters for a little bit, and then be available for adoption - hopefully in a ... (Read More)few weeks. We will be looking for a confident handler for Bodie, with breed or similar breed experience. Someone Bodie can take his cues from, and who will continue with his training! We would prefer a home with no small children since he hasn't spent a lot of time around them. Bodie seems OK with other dogs. If you are an active and patient person looking for a fun companion, and might like to open your home & heart to our handsome guy when he becomes available, please fill out our online application to get the approval process started. We will not schedule meet & greets without an approved application on file. Here's the link: https://www.miraclegsdmaine.org/ (Less)

German Shepherd    Age: Young Adult

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

    Stanley was rescued from a high kill shelter in California. He is approximately 3 years old. He is a friendly guy, and very exuberant! Stanley tested friendly with other dogs, although he is a bit 'in their face' and high energy. He was pretty respectful of the shelter cat during a short intro. Stanley is about 70 lbs and is an all around happy dog. He will most likely need a little training - he was likely an outdoor do, but it shouldn't be hard - he's a smart guy! We expect Stanley to arrive at the rescue in Maine sometime in May! Once he does, and we learn more about him, we will update his bio!

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)

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

    PLEASE ENSURE YOU READ ALL THE INFORMATION PROVIDED TO LEARN ALL ABOUT LOCATION AND ADOPTION OPTIONS. BENSON was saved from Texas where most dogs in the kill shelters have 3 days to be saved before they are killed. BENSON is neutered, rabies, core vaccines, de-wormed, heart-worm and tick disease (SNAP 4DX) tested negative and micro-chipped. He has been estimated date of birth of 1 February 2015 and weighs around 38 pounds. %BD'%BD%BDBENSON was saved with his brother ASTRO and both boys are so much fun. BENSON is very puppy-like in his behaviour, he is so very happy, he loves to play with toys and chase around wrestling and playing ... (Read More)with his brother. He is great with other dogs and has been around small 5 pound dogs up to 95 pound dogs and gets on great with all of them. BENSON uses the dog door to go out and do his business. He is a happy confident boy, so much life, energy and love to give. We do not have cats in the rescue so are unable to comment on how he would be around them. We would love to adopt both BENSON and ASTRO together as they clearly enjoy each other's company a lot, however, we will adopt them out individually to a family that can give them what they need. BENSON would suit a relatively active fun family that has the time to work with him on her 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 BENSON 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! BENSON is available for adoption through Give a Dog a Home, German Shepherd Dog Rescue for an adoption fee of US $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.

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 

    PLEASE ENSURE YOU READ ALL THE INFORMATION PROVIDED TO LEARN ALL ABOUT LOCATION AND ADOPTION OPTIONS. JASPER was saved from Texas where most dogs in the kill shelters have 3 days to be saved before they are killed. JASPER is neutered, rabies, core vaccines, de-wormed, heart-worm and tick disease (SNAP 4DX) tested negative and micro-chipped. He has been estimated date of birth of 21 April 2016 and weighs around 45 pounds. JASPER is an adorable, sweet boy, he is great with all of the other dogs. He plays with the 5 pound chi's up to the 95 pound GSDs and he adapts his play to suit the size and type of play. He is gentle with the small dogs ... (Read More)and then wrestle and chase the bigger ones. His best friend here at the rescue is GHOST. When JASPER arrived he was very reserved and quiet, but he had been through so much with all that happened in his previous life, getting caught, the shelter, transport from Texas to Maine and then arriving at the rescue, I'm sure he was overwhelmed. After just 24 hours of decompressing and adjusting to his new temporary life his sweet personality started to shine. JASPER uses the dog door to go out and do his business, he happily eats with the other dogs and has never shown any kind of aggression or grumpiness. He is a happy confident boy, so much life, energy and love to give. We do not have cats in the rescue so are unable to comment on how he would be around them.

ALICE is a happy, go-lucky, loveable girl, she does jump a little when she comes to greet you, but not too much that it can't be managed and with the appropriate training this is can easily be taught it is not accepted behaviour. ALICE is very affectionate and loves her belly-rubbed and ear scratched. She has been aged to be around 3.5 years, but does still act a lot younger than that- this could be as she is happy and with her friends, getting plenty of exercise, play time, a good quality food and of course yummy treats. ALICE is very agile and easily, and often jumps over the stable-door in the house dividing two rooms, she would be a great dog for someone interested in agility or an active sport. ALICE is great with all of the dogs here at the rescue ranging from 5 pound to 95 pounds. We do NOT have cats on the rescue so I am not in a position to comment on how he will be with cats. SNOW does use the dog door and comes and goes as she pleases, she has not had any accidents at the rescue, but I do not know if she would know how to let you know she needs to go out. ALICE would suit a relatively active fun family that would take her on adventures and road trips and let her explore the sights, sounds and smells the world has to offer. She would benefit from a family that has the time to work with her on basic and advanced obedience training. By working together both ALICE 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. It would be great to adopt both ALICE and SNOW out together as they are such good friends and we have had an offer from a volunteer to donate $100 ($50 per dog) towards their adoption if they are adopted together. This is not a deal-breaker though and we would adopt them individually to the right family. 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! ALICE is available for adoption through Give a Dog a Home, German Shepherd Dog Rescue for an adoption fee of US $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.

Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament

    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.

Rescue Me ID: 16-12-19-00227LUCKY (male)

German Shepherd    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
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! LUCKY was originally saved from a high kill shelter in Texas, he was not at the rescue long before he was adopted at the end of December 2016. LUCKY sadly had to come back to the rescue at the end of March as the families circumstances have changed and they do not have the time to work with him on training and such and he was getting a little too boisterous and controlling. LUCKY 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 11 ... (Read More)November 2015 old and weighs around 65 pounds. LUCKY's former family who had named him Fawkes, provided the following information: Fawkes/LUCKY is a very affectionate and loyal dog. He loves to follow you around and be involved in what you're doing. He loves going on walks and has been trained not to pull, and is very at walking right by your side. His favorite toys are ropes and squeaky animals. For treats, he loves frozen peas and anything with peanut butter. Fawkes/LUCKY knows basic obedience: sit, stay, come, let go, and down as well as a few tricks like 'give a paw' and 'dance' which he loves. He's also been trained to sit and stay before he eats, until you give him the okay. He loves going on adventures and rides very well in the car. They also said that he has separation anxiety, but I do not know to what extent. They didn't say he destroyed anything so I think it is more of a whining/wanting to get to be where they are. They said another problem they had was him being protective of his home and family. This is a very typical German Shepherd Dog trait and they absolutely must have a human alpha family or they will feel that they need to take charge and this is where things can start to go wrong. When LUCKY came back to the rescue he settled back in great, he plays fantastically with the other dogs, he loves to chase and wrestle with the bigger, high energy dogs and can literally be playing almost all day. He is great in that he adapts his play with the smaller dogs that want to play and mingle with the big dogs, he will still play and chase with them, but not be as rough. He has also proven to be very gentle with the 5wk old puppies that are here at the rescue and starting to explore and meet the pack. We do NOT have cats at the rescue so we cannot say how he will be with cats, although his formerly family said he doesn't do well with them. I imagine this is very much more of him wanting to chase and play with them, going from his personality. LUCKY did initially bark at people when they came round, however, I made sure he knew this wasn't acceptable and if he didn't stop I would put him in a crate in another room for a few minutes. I would then go and let him out and if he continued to bark, I would put him back in the crate for a little longer. LUCKY soon learnt that barking at people is not acceptable and he is now very friendly and happy to meet people, although at times he does still bark. This is something that will just need to be continued to work on, considering not many people come here, he has made excellent progress. I cannot comment on the separation side of the families experience, only that he has had none here, but he is always with other dogs. As with humans, dogs act differently in different environments and if he knows that he is safe and secure and does not control the home, this might not be an issue, however, it is something any potential adopters need to be aware of. He absolutely, 100% needs a family that is alpha and has the experience of young, high energy German Shepherds. If LUCKY does not have guidance, and structure in his home he will start to take control and start to own his home and owners, which is of course not acceptable. He is a very smart boy he just needs to know his boundaries and be made to understand under no uncertain terms what is acceptable and not. The softy, softy, fluffy approach with LUCKY is just not going to work - he needs strong leadership, as do most GSDs and working dogs.Whilst being at the rescue, other than barking at people, he has not shown any negative behaviour at all. We have dog doors in the house and LUCKY uses them to go out and play or to do his business. LUCKY 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, road trips and let him explore the sights, sounds and smells the world has to offer. By working together both LUCKY 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.

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

German Shepherd    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
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 is neutered, 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. KOLA has a condition called Keratoconjunctivitus Sicca, which means he has a malfunctioning tear duct. The right eye tear duct works at less than 50%, so requires multiple drops daily. Although he is responding VERY well to the drops, the ... (Read More)veterinary eye specialist predicts this as most likely being a lifelong issue for Kola. A normal eye produces 23ml of tear per 60 seconds, KOLA's right eye produces 10ml, his left eye is normal. KOLA has no ulceration and no chance of eye amputation as long as he continues to respond well to the Tacrolimus drops, which he will need the rest of his life. She said the eye could roller coaster, improve and get worse then improve, etc. his entire life. If it worsens, drops would be adjusted and so forth if it improves as well. His eye looks great. It's very clear with no mucous and barely squinting, only when he wakes up and it's a little dry. Foster mum has him trained well with treats to receive the drops. He's a good boy and very well worth it. KOLA has a FABULOUS personality! He gets along well with other dogs, all sizes, and is beginning to adjust to his foster brother cats. If they don't run, he sniffs and is curious, if they run he chases after them wanting to play. He is estimated to be about one year old and still plays and behaves like a puppy. He listens well, has good eye contact and will be easily trained. He walks great on a leash and is potty trained. As you can tell in some of his pictures, he loves to snuggle!! 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. The cost of the eye drops is around $150 (give or take) and last for around 6 weeks. 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. 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. 'http://www.giveadogahome-sanantonio.org KOLA 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.
