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)

Lab Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Tigger was saved from one of the shelters we work with in Texas. She is spayed, rabies, core vaccines, de-wormed, heart-worm and tick-disease tested; Negative and micro-chipped. She has an estimated date of birth of 24 July 2016 and she weighs around 30 pounds. Tigger is listed has been listed as a Labrador / Dalmation mix. We have no way of knowing the true breed, it is up to you to decide what you think his breed/s is. Tigger is a happy go lucky girl, her tail is always wagging and she always has that contagious smile on her face, so happy to see anyone and share the love and affection. She loves to get her ears scratched and belly ... (Read More)rubbed. She enjoys playing with toys and chewing on cow hooves. She is located in the kennels building and uses the dog door in her kennel to get out to the run to do her business. She has not had any accidents or been destructive whist in the kennel. She shares a kennel with Oreo and they are always playing and wrestling and having fun. She is great with all dogs of all sizes at playtime and loves to run around and chase and be chased. We do NOT have cats at the rescue so cannot comment on how she would be around, or near them. Tigger is a young girl with a lot of energy, we do not have time to work on training at the rescue, but she is responsive. She needs a family that understands she will need training and guidance. An active family who can give her the lifestyle that she needs. Playing ball in the back-yard is fun, but she would benefit from so much more, she is going to need a lot of physical and mental exercise. Going on road trips, to new places, hikes and adventures and letting her explore the sights, smells and sounds the world has to offer will be to hers and your benefit. It is important that her family understands the importance of basic and advanced training. We advise that families work on their own basic training so that boundaries and expectations can be set and personalities and body language learnt in the process, which will help form a much stronger bond. Tigger will make a great family addition to an experienced family. She is fun, active and very loving and deserves a good family and home to call her own. Tigger is available for adoption from Give a Dog a Home, German Shepherd Dog Rescue for an adoption fee of $500.

Chihuahua    Age: Puppy

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

    Sandy was saved from one of the shelters we work with in Texas. She is spayed, rabies, core vaccines, de-wormed, heart-worm and tick-disease tested; Negative and micro-chipped. She has an estimated date of birth of 13 June 2016 and has an estimated weight of 10 pounds. Star has been listed as a Chihuahua. We have no way of knowing the true breed, it is up to you to decide what you think her breed/s is. 'Sandy is a sweet girl, she is very quiet and gentle although is gaining confidence here at the rescue and getting. She does act like she has been abused, if you go to pick her up she screams and curls into a ball, but once you have hold ... (Read More)of her and reassure her she is good. Once she feels confident she really warms up and enjoys cuddles, ear scratches and belly rubs. She would love to sit on someone's lap on a nice comfy chair or couch and get all the love that she has missed over the years. 'Sandy is located in the kennel building and does use the dog door to go in and out to do her business. There have not been any accidents in the kennel and no damage to anything. 'Sandy is fine with the other dogs, being around big dogs doesn't bother her she is quite confident being amongst a lot of dog, but she isn't the dog that wants to run, wrestle and play with them all. She is definitely more a lap/human dog. '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. Sandy is going to need a family that is used to small dogs. Someone who understand that she will need training and guidance and learns that humans are in charge so that she doesn't get too much of a handful. A somewhat active family who can give her the lifestyle that she needs. Going on road trips, to new places, hikes and adventures and letting her explore the sights, smells and sounds the world has to offer will be to hers and your benefit. It is important that her family understands the importance of basic and advanced training. We advise that families work on their own basic training so that boundaries and expectations can be set and personalities and body language learnt in the process, which will help form a much stronger bond. Sandy will make a great family addition to an experienced family. She is fun, loves the outdoors and very loving and deserves a good family and home to call her own.

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

Siberian Husky 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.

Rescue Me ID: 17-07-21-00306VICTORIOUS (female)

White Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Victorious was saved from one of the shelters we work with in Texas. She had not long since finished nursing pups when we saved her. She is spayed, rabies, core vaccines, de-wormed, heart-worm and tick-disease tested; Negative and micro-chipped. She has an estimated date of birth of 26 June 2015 and has an estimated weight of 38 pounds and is fully grown. Molly has been listed as an German Shepherd Dog/Husky mix. We have no way of knowing the true breed, it is up to you to decide what you think her breed/s is. Victorious had two puppies when we saved her, however, we had saved 3 other puppies that were scared and skinny, she took them under ... (Read More)her wing and allowed them to nurse a little before they were strong enough to ween off her. She was nervous initially at the rescue, however, over time and building trust has become happy and friendly. She is very affectionate and loving when she is comfortable with people. She does snatch when taking treats, so she would need some work there and note to yourself to watch your fingers. She is a gorgeous girl with stunning blue eyes and a beautiful white coat, which is more like the coat of a lab than a husky/GSD double coat. She is very active and absolutely loves running around being chased or chasing the other dogs. She is great with all dogs of all sizes and still has a nurturing side when there are puppies around. Her daughter ADA is still here in rescue and they are still close and enjoy playing. She has not had any accidents or been destructive whist here at the rescue. I free feed and she shares with other dogs and has never had any problems. She is house trained in that she uses dogs doors to come and go as she pleases. I do not know if she would know how to let you know she wants to go outside, so that would be something to plan for. I do think that when she first leaves the rescue she will be nervous, she has gained a lot of confidence and feel safe and secure here and it might be a little stressful on her initially, but once she knows she is in a safe place, with a loving family of her own, I am sure it will not take her long to adjust at all. 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. 'As mentioned molly is very affectionate and loves to get cuddles, her belly rubbed and ear scratched. She loves toys and especially loves to chew on the cow hooves. She gets on great with other dogs of all sizes. We do NOT have cats at the rescue so are unable to say how she would get on with cats. She is the type of dog that would follow you to the end of the earth and back and cuddle up as close as she can at the end of the day when she has gained that trust. Victorious is going to need a family that is used to high energy, smart dogs. Someone who understand that she will need training and guidance and learns that humans are in charge so that she doesn't get too much of a handful. An active family who can give her the lifestyle that she needs. Going on road trips, to new places, hikes and adventures and letting her explore the sights, smells and sounds the world has to offer will be to hers and your benefit. It is important that her family understands the importance of basic and advanced training. We advise that families work on their own basic training so that boundaries and expectations can be set and personalities and body language learnt in the process, which will help form a much stronger bond. She has not had any training as far as we know. Victorious will make a great family addition to an experienced family. She is fun, active and very loving and deserves a good family and home to call her own. Victorious 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.

Rescue Me ID: 17-07-04-00461MUNECA (female)

Border Collie Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    MUNECA was saved from one of the shelters we work with in Texas. She is spayed, rabies, core vaccines, de-wormed, heart-worm and tick-disease tested; Negative and micro-chipped. She has an estimated date of birth of 20 June 2016. MUNECA has been listed as an Border Collie. We have no way of knowing the true breed, it is up to you to decide what you think she breed/s is. MUNECA is a young girl just bursting with energy, she is smart, fun, active and gets excited when she interacts with people. She is located in our kennel building so I cannot say if she is house-trained, however, she uses the dog door to do her business. She can get vocal in ... (Read More)the kennels, but I do believe that is more for attention and because she wants to be out running and playing, which is what she should be doing at her age. MUNECA definitely needs an active family who can take her on adventures and give her lots of ways to expel all that energy that she has. She will need an alpha family who understand the need of training her. We recommend families work on basic and advanced obedience together as this helps to set boundaries and expectations, it also helps by MUNECA and her family to learn each others personalities, body language and help form a stronger bond. She is great with other dogs of all ages and sizes, she does get excited and can jump on them initially, however, a lot of that is also because she is in the kennel environment and not getting the full attention, love and affection that she needs. We do NOT have cats at the rescue, so we have no way of knowing or able to say how she would act with or around them. She would benefit from an active family that can take her on adventures, she is good with children, however, as mentioned does get excitable but with training, a routine, an understanding of her family being in charge and of course being able to expel that energy and put her mind to work, she would be an awesome family pet. MUNECA is available for adoption from 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.

Lab Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    LAYLA was saved from one of the shelters we work with in Texas. She is spayed, rabies, core vaccines, de-wormed, heart-worm and tick-disease tested; Negative and micro-chipped. She has an estimated date of birth of 6 June 2016. LAYLA has been listed as an Labrador Retriever. We have no way of knowing the true breed, it is up to you to decide what you think she breed/s is. LAYLA is a gorgeous, fun, affectionate, curious young girl who is bursting with energy and love. She gets on great with other dogs of all ages and sizes and loves to run, play, chase and wrestle. She is very affectionate and extremely curious watching everything I do and ... (Read More)taking it all on board, she watches when I open and close the gate as if processing how I am doing it. A smart girl for sure. We do not have cats at the rescue so we cannot comment on how she would act near or around them. LAYLA shares her kennel with her friend Maddi (husky mix) and they are constantly playing and wrestling at play time they just run and chase around enjoying the fresh air and being able to run free. Layla, like almost all dogs in rescue does jump up a lot, this is more eager to get attention and is an easy fix and will most likely stop when she has her own family and getting all the attention for herself. 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 Layla and her humans can learn each others body language and personalities and form a stronger bond and understanding of each other. Layla would benefit from an active family who will take her on road trips, hikes, trips to the beach and lake and give her the chance to explore the sights, sounds and smells the world has to offer. She rides great in the car and is a friendly with everyone that she meets. She is a social girl with dogs and humans and would benefit from lots of social interaction with both. LAYLA is available for adoption from Give a Dog a Home, German Shepherd Dog Rescue for an adoption fee of $500.

Rescue Me ID: 17-04-23-00266WILLOW (female)

Lab Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    WILLOW was saved from a shelter in Texas. She is spayed, rabies, core vaccines, de-wormed, heart-worm and tick disease (SNAP 4DX) tested negative and micro-chipped. She has been estimated date of birth of 9 September 2016 and weighs around 17 pounds. We have no idea what breed she is for sure, we just go off what she appears to look like to us, you would need to do the same. WILLOW is a great size girl and is very loving and affectionate. She doesn't appear to have had any kind of training, which is very common for younger dogs and she needs to be taught some basic manners. She does jump up in her excitement and this would need to be worked ... (Read More)on. She is a complete love bug and loves to run and play. She has clearly not had much socialization with dogs as she does get into their space and can irritate them. This is not done in an aggressive way, but more of not understanding and again have no manners and this is something that we are working on, her behaviour with other dogs. Once the other dog has let her know that her jumping on them is unacceptable, she learns and plays nicely. It really is more that she is young and excitable, with learning respect for other dogs and basic and advanced obedience training she will be an absolute diamond. WILLOW will definitely need some training and we recommend that families spend time with her working on basic obedience and manners, this helps to set boundaries, expectations and allows both Willow and her humans to learn more about each others personality and body language. WILLOW rides great in a car and likes to go on adventures so she can explore lots of new places. She is good with children although she does get very excitable and jump up, which can easily be trained out of her with consistency by all family members. It is important that all children understand she is not a toy and will need her own space at times, but for the most part would love to play and snuggle with them. We do not have cats in the rescue so are unable to comment on how he would be around them. WILLOW is a great size for a family and would benefit from an active family who can take her on lots of walks and adventures and let her explore the sights, smells and sounds the world has to offer. This would not only give her the physical exercise that she needs, but also the mental stimulation. WILLOW 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.

Schipperke Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    PEPPER was saved from a shelter in Texas. He 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 September 2015 and weighs around 28 pounds. We have no idea what breed he is for sure, we just go off what he appears to look like to us, you would need to do the same. PEPPER is a great size boy and is very loving and affectionate when knows he can trust. He can be wary of people initially but give him chance to build up his confidence and learn to trust and he then turns into a love bug. This could take minutes, or it could take days, ... (Read More)so PEPPER is going to need an extra special caring family that will give him time to adapt and put the horrors of his previous life behind him. PEPPER is great with other dogs, and he loves to run and chase or be chased, getting all of that built up energy released. He always seems to be smiling when he is running around. We do not have cats in the rescue so are unable to comment on how he would be around them. PEPPER when he is confident with his new family and home will need some training and we recommend that families spend time with him working on basic obedience and manners, this helps to set boundaries, expectations and allows both PEPPER and his humans to learn more about each others personality and body language. PEPPER is responsive and with consistency and guidance training should be easy and fun. PEPPER rides great in a car and would benefit going on adventures so he can explore lots of new places. He, as with adults is wary when around children, but he has never shown any kind of aggression. It is important that all children understand that he should be given his space and let him build trust and confidence, which I really do not think will take long at all.

Rescue Me ID: 16-11-13-00064NOVA (female)

German Shepherd    Age: Puppy

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

    PLEASE ENSURE YOU READ ALL THE INFORMATION PROVIDED TO LEARN ALL ABOUT DAWN, HER LOCATION AND ADOPTION OPTIONS. Nova was saved from a high kill shelter in Texas where she was extremely emaciated, had very thin coarse hair and very nervous and submissive. Whilst being at the rescue she has flourished health wise and doing great. She is spayed, rabies, core vaccines, heart-worm & tick disease tested negative (4dx), de-wormed and micro-chipped. She has an estimated date of birth of 5th November 2015 and weighs around 55 pounds Nova is a very sweet girl, she was as mentioned very submissive with dogs and humans and it took a long time to get ... (Read More)her to learn that coming in the house was acceptable. I would have to go and physically bring her inside, in all kinds of weather, but when inside she would love to cuddle and snuggle. She had clearly not known any kind of affection or love in her life until she came to the rescue. With Nova doing great in the rescue a family found her, fell in love and adopted her. All was great, however, after 3 months we had an email saying that they was going to have to bring NOVA back as she had become aggressive. This was a complete shock as Nova has always been nothing but naturally submissive, very submissive, so with some talking to the family I believe I understand what happened. Some families tend to 'baby' dogs when they adopt them, especially when they have had a really bad past, although this is a nice idea, it is not good for dogs, because dogs need an alpha, if there is no alpha then they step up to be alpha even if it is not their natural personality. Nova whilst loved and had a great life, didn't have the alpha personalities that she needed and so stepped up to being queen of her castle. She started barking at people when they came in the house, this then progressed to lunging at people and then finally over time, she would run outside into the garden barking, growling and lunging at anyone other than her mum and dad. There doesn't appear to have been any consequence for her actions from the beginning and so naturally she progressed to becoming aggressive, although it was not her natural personality. The family did decide to give it a try and hired a trainer, however, the trainer took them to the shops to work with her, which I didn't understand since the problem was in the home and really with the family. Nova just needed to learn that her behaviour was absolutely unacceptable and there would be a consequence for her actions. I suggested having her on a leash when people were around, any barking, she would be removed from the room and so on. Since Nova has been at the rescue over six months now she has been great, she is back to her natural submissive self and again extremely affectionate and loving. She rides great in the car, she loves to go for long walks, she is extremely responsive. She is great with other dogs of all sizes and plays great with them. We do not have cats at the rescue, so we cannot say how she would behave around them. She is a very social girl and loves to be around people and loves nothing more than to snuggle and cuddle up as close as she can. She has not barked at anyone, if anything she hangs back to make sure it is safe for her to come over. Nova knows I am the alpha and this is what she needs to be happy and to be herself. She is going to need a family that has the time and patience to let this adorable girl trust, who will understand that she has had a horrific time, but also has 'tasted' the 'control' and I do believe that she absolutely needs a family that understands the alpha role that humans must play. I do feel that if Nova is with a family that is not alpha and ensures she knows her place in the family, she will try and step up, since that is what she knows of living with humans. She needs a family that if they see any sign of her starting to be alpha in the home, they work with her and let her know it is not acceptable and guide her and take things back to basics so she knows she is not the alpha and there is no need for her to think she has to step up. NOVA 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. 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! NOVA 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.
