Rescue Me ID: 18-02-09-00370WOODY (male)

Dachshund Mix    Age: Young Puppy

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

    WOODY was saved from one of the shelters we work with in Texas. He is neutered, rabies, core vaccines, de-wormed and micro-chipped. He has an estimated date of birth of 31 October 2017 and has an estimated weight of 9.6 pounds. He has been listed as a Daschshund mix. We have no way of knowing the true breed, it is up to you to decide what you think his breed/s is. WOODY was picked up by animal control with Trixie who, when he arrived at the rescue was very bonded with. Since he has gotten older, he has made lots more friends at the rescue and is a very happy social boy. Woody is bursting with energy with a larger than life personality, he ... (Read More)is a happy go lucky boy. He has a smile on his face all the time that is infectious in that your heart can't not smile with him when he looks up at you. Woody has lived in the house with me and my dogs and some other rescue's. He is very well dog socialized and loves to play and wrestle with dogs his own size, but also the big dogs. He loves his toys and squeaky toys are a bonus, he will de-stuff toys if they are easily de-stuffed as most puppies enjoy. He is very affectionate and loves to get cuddles and his belly rubbed and ear scratched.. We do not have cats at the rescue so are unable to say how he would get on with cats. Woody, although a small dog is going to need a family that enjoys an energetic lifestyle. Someone who understand that he will need training and guidance and learns that humans are in charge so boundaries are set. He is going to enjoy an outdoors kind of family who can give him the lifestyle that he needs. Going on road trips, to new places, hikes and adventures and letting him explore the sights, smells and sounds the world has to offer will be to his and your benefit. He is still young and has plenty of energy inside that little body of his. He is going to need a family that 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. Woody will make a great family addition to an experienced family. He is fun, active and very loving and deserves a good family and home to call his own. We would prefer Woody to have a family that has another dog, or other animals he can socialize with, he loves other dogs and has been with 25+ dogs since he was 2 months old. ' '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. Woody 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: 18-02-01-00090NITRO (male)

White Shepherd    Age: Puppy

Personality: High Energy 
Health: Neutered 

    Nitro was saved from a high kill shelter in Texas, where dogs generally have just 3 days to be saved before they are killed for space. Nitro is Neutered, core vaccines, rabies, de-wormed, heartworm tested negative and micro-chipped. He has an estimated date of birth of 25 June 2017 and weighs around 35.00 pound. He has been listed as a White German Shepherd Dog We have no way of knowing the exact breed, so it is up to individuals to decide what breed they think is most likely. Nitro is currently with his foster family in Texas and following is what his foster family said about him: NITRO is a spunky and confident boy estimated to be 7 ... (Read More)months old. He's a stunning boy that is white with a champagne saddle. He has a lot to learn but will learn quickly with proper training. NITRO has abundant energy but when he sleeps, he sleeps hard'|as most puppies do! He is potty trained, walks well on a leash, rides great in the car and gets along with other dogs. Due to being a stray and also being so young, he does have a food issue where other dogs are concerned. His foster mum is currently working with him. Until he feels secure with his own bowl of food, he should be fed separately from other dogs. With training and patience, I am confident he will 'outgrow' this lack of manners! He is interested in cats (in a curious way, not aggressive) so they would need to be introduced gently. NITRO is so much fun, he has a humorous personality and will always be by your side or under your chair!

Rescue Me ID: 17-12-14-00431TABITHA (female)

Collie Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Tabitha was saved from a high kill shelter in Texas, where dogs generally have just 3 days to be saved before they are killed for space. Tabitha is spayed, core vaccines, rabies, de-wormed, heartworm tested negative and micro-chipped. She has an estimated date of birth of 4 November 2016 and weighs around 53.00 pounds. She has been listed as a Collie / German Shepherd Dog Mix. We have no way of knowing the exact breed, so it is up to individuals to decide what breed they think she most likely is. Tabitha is great with other dogs, although she can get a little excited at times but is very responsive when a dog barks or growls at her, I do ... (Read More)believe that it is just over stimulation with living with so many young, active dogs. When she is in a family setting with a good routine and some training I do believe that her excitement will reduce for sure. Being a Texas girl this is her first experience of snow and it is definitely something she enjoys. She really has a lot of enjoy and charging around chasing and being chased and diving in the snow she finds a lot of fun. We do not have cats at the rescue, so have no idea how he would act around them. Tabitha is around a year old and she acts as your typical 'teenager' she is high energy, she is extremely smart, she will push your limits, but when she knows that there is no manipulating you and she respects you, then she is an absolutely wonderful dog. She is extremely affectionate, when sitting or lying close by she will lean into you or rest her head on your feet. She would make a great family dog, or companion to someone who wants that special buddy to take everywhere with them. '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. Tabitha as mentioned is full of energy and so a family with an active lifestyle is a huge bonus. She rode great in the car and when she settled down she was happy looking out of the window. 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 Tabitha and her humans can learn each others body language and personalities and form a stronger bond and understanding of each other. Tabitha is available for adoption from Give a Dog a Home, German Shepherd Dog Rescue for an adoption fee of $550.

Rescue Me ID: 17-12-14-00427TRITON (male)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Puppy

Personality: Average Energy 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Triton was saved from one of the shelters we work with in Texas. He is neutered, rabies, core vaccines, de-wormed, heart-worm tested negative and micro-chipped. He has an estimated date of birth of 9 June 2016 and has an estimated weight of 13.80 pounds. He has been listed as a Chihuahua mix. We have no way of knowing the true breed, it is up to you to decide what you think his breed/s is. He arrived at the rescue in Sebec on 16th December 2017. When Triton first arrived at the rescue he was extremely shy and scared, he would stay curled up in the corner and sit and watch. He would freeze if I went up to go and stroke him, but was never ... (Read More)aggressive. After a few days, he started to relax a lot more and started to enjoy his petting sessions. After about a week he started wanting to explore and whilst still not at the point where he was ready to wrestle and play with the other dogs his curiosity was taking over his shyness. Over the following few weeks he has truly decompressed and come out of his shell. He will jump up on the coach for cuddles, he will go to one of the several toy baskets and choose a toy to play with, he will play with the other dogs and now more often than not instigate play. He will follow me to the kitchen when it is 'treat time' and hold his own amongst the hustle and bustle with the other dogs. Triton can be a bit growly when he has a toy, a hoof, a horn or a treat. He has never been aggressive but doesn't want other dogs coming near him whilst he is eating or playing with his toy. He is good playing with other dogs and toys, but this is more when he has a toy on his own. He has tried to intimidate the other dogs by going up to them and staring and having a little growl whilst they have something he wants, even with the German Shepherds, but this generally falls on deaf ears and when he knows they are not going to give up what they have to him he will go on the hunt for something else to entertain himself. Again he is not aggressive, but he does like his own space when he has something. He has never bitten or attacked any other dogs and I am able to take anything away from him at any time I please with no response. At first Triton was doing his business near the patio door, then as he started to explore he would use the pee pads I have down for a few puppies and since his confidence has grown he uses the dog door and comes and goes in and out as he pleases. I always recommend that families expect some accidents as it is a stressful transition and until dogs get settled and learn their new routine they may have a few accidents. Although Triton is a small dog he is still young and an active lifestyle would suit him. I do not know how he is on the leash and so the adopter must be prepared for some work with training him, once he has learnt to trust and happy and settled in his new life I do believe he will become someone's shadow and enjoy being social and adventurous. So a family that enjoys a somewhat active lifestyle would be beneficial. Someone who understand that he will need training and guidance and learns that humans are in charge so boundaries are set. He is going to enjoy an outdoors kind of family who can give him the lifestyle that he needs. Going on road trips, to new places, hikes and adventures and letting him explore the sights, smells and sounds the world has to offer will be to his and your benefit. He is going to need a family that 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. '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. Triton will make a great family addition to an experienced family who understands that he might need time to adapt and he might be nervous and unsure initially but know that he has huge potential once allowed to decompress and feel safe and loved. He is fun, active and very loving and deserves a good family and home to call his own. Triton 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: 17-12-14-00412BEBE (female)

Jack Russell Mix    Age: Adult

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

    Bebe 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 12 May 2012 and has an estimated weight of 12 pounds. Bebe has been listed as a Jack Russel Terrier. We have no way of knowing the true breed, it is up to you to decide what you think her breed/s is. Bebe was located in the kennel building and didn't use the dog door, it has a double-flapped dog door for medium/large sized dogs so she might not have pushed enough to get through, or it might have been that it is just extremely cold ... (Read More)here in Maine with lots of snow and ice that put her off going out. Bebe shared her kennel with Chavez a medium sized dog and she was very comfortable in his company. I have since moved Bebe an over into the shop with some other smaller dogs, where there is a lot more space for them and she is doing fine and using the pee-pads, they do not have access to outside unless i take them out at the moment. Due to this i cannot really say if she is house-trained or not. I would think once on a schedule and a routine of going out she will have no problem, in the mean time, pee-pads would always be a good idea to start the training. i feel it is always best to expect a few accidents and a bit of work and then if she is house-trained then it is a bonus. Bebe initially acts and looks a lot older than the shelter has deemed her as (5 years old). Part of this, I believe, is that she has been extremely distressed and scared at all the things that have happened to her in such a short time. The more time I spent with her, she is getting a lot more relaxed and confident. Being in the shop, she is happy to venture around and explore. She will climb up on my knee when I sit on the floor and cuddle up. Bebe loves to chew on the hooves and any treats that we have. She reacted to a few squeaky toys as if she knew what they was, but has not yet started to play with them. She is starting to get a lot more playful and I believe in a loving, family environment when she has settled and knows she is now finally in her forever home, she will thrive and become very playful and a lot of fun. Bebe is great with other dogs and and she doesn't get intimidated by the bigger dogs and if there is a lot of crazy playing, she will just move out of the way.

Bebe is going to need a family that is used to small dogs.

A somewhat active family who can give her the lifestyle that she needs.

Rescue Me ID: 17-12-14-00401HENRY (male)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Henry was saved from one of the high kill shelters we work with in Texas, where dogs generally get just 3 days to be saved before they are killed. Henry is neutered, rabies, core vaccines, de-wormed, heartworm tested negative and microchipped. He has an estimated date of birth of 25 February 2017 and at the time of rescue weighed 39.00 pounds. He has been listed as a Pit Bull Terrier. We have no way of knowing the true breed, it is up to you to decide what you think his breed/s is. He arrived at the rescue in Sebec on 16th December 2017. When Henry arrived at the rescue he was quite thin and had scars and marks all over him. We are not sure ... (Read More)if these injuries are from being used as a bait dog, a fighting dog or maybe even being thrown from a vehicle. All common traits unfortunately in Texas. Although he has clearly endured much suffering, he is one of the most loving, cuddy happy boys there is. A full chem 27, complete cbc, heartworm, tick disease and SDMA test was run and then an appointment at the vets. His blood/chem work was good, with nothing unexpected (Copies are posted on his page on the rescue website) upon examination of his rear knee, the vet determined that he has a inward luxating patella caused by trauma. His knee is twice the size of his other knee and since this injury was caused by trauma, is not a straight forward case. The issue being since there is trauma, the surgery for the luxating patella might have zero impact and so will put Henry through a surgery that has a very painful 3 month recovery period. Then if surgery is done and is successful, there is no guarantee it will be long lasting due to the other injuries. It was decided after great discussion and observation of Henry that since he is still young and his body still has another 6-12 months of growth, it best to not do any surgeries. He has been prescribed Rimadyl and is being monitored to see if it makes a difference as he had been slightly limping. His injury does not slow him down, he loves to play and wrestle and other than him limping occasionally and of course his scars, you would never know anything was wrong. The family that takes on this handsome boy will need to understand that Henry's injury is not straight forward and with or without the surgery he will definitely develop arthiritis and so as he gets older will definitely need supplements for his joints and arthiritis to help alleviate pain. Surgery could possibly be an option, but would depend on how he develops and how he does over the upcoming months. This would need to be discussed with your vet upon observations of his activity and an examination. Being in a financial position to have surgery if needed is a must for his adopting family. Everyone that has met Henry has fell in love with him, he has a very infectious personality and would really be worth anything that is needed as he would give back so much more in his love and affection. Henry didn't go in the kennels due to his condition but came into the house with my dogs and some other rescue's. He settled in immediately and picked up using the dog door and never had an accident or marked in the house. He gets on great with other dogs of all ages and sizes and lives amongst dogs ranging from 4 pound chi puppies to 120 pound German Shepherds. He loves to chase and wrestle and will play at all levels and can be rough with the big dogs and then so gentle with the small dogs allowing them to climb on him or chew on his ear with no concern at all. We do not have cats at the rescue so cannot comment how he will be around them. Henry has not had any kind of formal training but he is very smart and responsive and is very well mannered, he walks ok on the leash, but as with all rescue dogs the more leash walking he gets, the better he will become. Henry has not shown any kind of aggression ever, with humans or other dogs. When people come round to the house he is very welcoming and receptive and is happy for people to love on him and him to give them kisses. He has been around small children around 7 years old was wonderful, he just wants to roll on the floor and play or get cuddles and be able to share all the love that he has. Henry is a young, high energy boy who will need a daily opportunity to get out and expel that high energy, so a family that enjoys a an active lifestyle would be needed. He is also going to need mental stimulation so games, exercise and challenges Someone who understand that he will need training and guidance and learns that humans are in charge so boundaries are set. He is going to enjoy an outdoors kind of family who can give him the lifestyle that he needs. Going on road trips, to new places, hikes and adventures and letting him explore the sights, smells and sounds the world has to offer will be to his and your benefit. He is going to need a family that understands the importance of basic and advanced training. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-12-14-00391LUNA (female)

Dutch Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Luna was saved from a high kill shelter in Texas, where dogs generally have just 3 days to be saved before they are killed for space. Luna is spayed, core vaccines, rabies, de-wormed, heartworm tested negative and micro-chipped. She has an estimated date of birth of 22 February 2016 and weighs around 37.70 pounds. She has been listed as a Dutch Shepherd mix. We have no way of knowing the exact breed, so it is up to individuals to decide what breed they think she most likely is. We do not have cats at the rescue so no way of knowing how she would act around cats. Luna is an awesome girl who is so full of life, it is hard not to get excited ... (Read More)with her when she see's you. She is a high energy girl and has a lot of bundled up energy that each day she runs around crazily at playtime, happy to be alive and happy to have all the time to run and explore. Luna was originally located in the kennel building, however, in January was brought over to the house and lives with 20 dogs, ranging from 5 pound chi pups up to 120 pound German Shepherds. Luna initially would get a little growly when it came to food if another dog came near her when she was eating, however, since being in the house she has gotten much better, but has never shown any signs of aggression, just a low growl. If there is no room on the sofa beside me, she will lay at my feet, resting her head or her paws on my foot. Since being in the house Luna has calmed down a lot, but this is most likely due to being able to get a lot more exercise since she has access to the outside area 24/7 and she has a lot of dogs to run and play with. Luna when first arrived at the rescue did seem unsure at first if she is allowed to come up and get some affection, so there is a good chance that she has experienced some abuse in her past, but with encouragement she will come up and relishes in the love and attention. She does jump up and does get over excited, but I believe when in a home setting and not with all the other dogs she will calm down considerably, but she will still need lots of mental and physical stimulation and exercise. Luna is great with other dogs, although she can get a little excited at times but is very responsive when a dog barks or growls at her, I do believe that it is just over stimulation with living with so many young, active dogs. When she is in a family setting with a good routine and some training I do believe that her excitement will reduce for sure. Being a Texas girl this is her first experience of snow and it is definitely something she enjoys. She really has a lot of enjoy and charging around chasing and being chased and diving in the snow she finds a lot of fun. We do not have cats at the rescue, so have no idea how he would act around them. Luna is around a year old and she acts as your typical 'teenager' she is high energy, she is extremely smart, she will push your limits, but when she knows that there is no manipulating you and she respects you, then she is an absolutely wonderful dog. She is extremely affectionate and gets excited at playtime so that she can not only run, but enjoy the love and affection she gives and gets. She would make a great family dog, or companion to someone who wants that special buddy to take everywhere with them. '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. Luna as mentioned is full of energy and so a family with an active lifestyle is a huge bonus. She rode great in the car and when she settled down she was happy looking out of the window. 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 Rosie and her humans can learn each others body language and personalities and form a stronger bond and understanding of each other. Luna 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: 17-12-14-00389MIKEY (male)

Boston Terrier Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Mikey was saved from a high kill shelter in Texas, where dogs generally have just 3 days to be saved before they are killed for space. Chavez is neutered, core vaccines, rabies, de-wormed, heartworm tested negative and micro-chipped. He has an estimated date of birth of 31 August 2016 and weighs around 36.90 pounds. He has been listed as a Boston Terrier / Australian Cattle Dog. We have no way of knowing the exact breed, so it is up to individuals to decide what breed they think is most likely. It is important to note that if you believe he does look like he has pit bull terrier in him, then several places have breed restrictions and some ... (Read More)people can have a negative attitude towards the breed. Mikey is the sweetest boy, he is an active boy, but is so laid back. He is located in the kennel building and he will go outside in the run to do his business and to see what is going on outside, but when it isn't play time he settles down and relaxes enjoying chewing on his hoof. Mikey is enjoying the snow, being from Texas this is the first time he has experienced snow and he seems to find it fascinating. Mikey is a really happy boy, he will run and play and then come back to check in before running off to explore a bit more. He is so sweet and loving, he loves to lean on you and get his head scratched or his belly rubbed. He wags his tail and goes to the gate to greet people when they go over to the kennels, he truly is just pure-sweetness. Mikey has been great with the dogs he has met and played with and not showed any signs of aggression. We do not have cats at the rescue so cannot comment how he is with cats.

Rescue Me ID: 17-12-14-00386SPOT (male)

Catahoula Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Spot was saved from a high kill shelter in Texas, where dogs generally have just 3 days to be saved before they are killed for space. Spot is neutered, core vaccines, rabies, de-wormed, heartworm tested negative and micro-chipped. He has an estimated date of birth of 9 December 2016 and weighs around 37.00 pound. He has been listed as a Catahoula Leopard Dog. We have no way of knowing the exact breed, so it is up to individuals to decide what breed they think is most likely. Spot is located in the kennel building and although he is a very high energy boy, he does settle down in the kennel and is well mannered and gentle. He has a lot of ... (Read More)energy he needs to expel and at playtime he runs like he is so happy. Spot does use the dog door to go outside to see what is going on and to do his business and at play time he absolutely loves to go and run and play in the snow. Being a Texas boy, this is his first experience of snow and it is definitely something he enjoys. Spot has been out playing with other dogs and he is fine, with some of the other male dogs, they have their little stand-off but it lasts a few seconds and then they are off exploring and playing. We do not have cats at the rescue, so have no idea how he would act around them. Spot does jump up a lot and this is definitely something that would need to be worked on. He seems to use humans as his spring-board. Spot is really your typical 'teenager' he is high energy, he is extremely smart, he will push your limits, but when he knows that there is no manipulating you and he respects you, then he is an absolutely wonderful dog. Did I mention that he jumps up a lot. However, with some work I have no doubt he will stop this and the rescue environment does feed his energy, when in a home and has a routine I am sure this will not be so much of an issue.

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

German Shepherd Mix    Age: 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, heartworm and tick disease tested negative, de-wormed and micro-chipped. She has an estimated date of birth of 26 May 2017. ADA has been listed as a GSD mix. Ada was only a month old when she was saved with her mother and sibling, both were pure white, with blue eyes. Both her mother and sibling have been adopted. Ada, having grown up around lots of dogs of all breeds, ages and sizes is extremely well dog socialized. She is an active girl and she loves to play, chase, wrestle and have fun. As a pup she was very shy and didn't like to be ... (Read More)touched, but she has developed into a very loving, affectionate girl, who will find the smallest spot on the bed and make sure she can fit in it, just to be close. She will cuddle on the couch, but also is content lying on a dog bed. Since we don't time to train dogs at the rescue Ada is going to need a family that will spend the time and work with her, she is well behaved and does have good manners, but she needs to learn boundaries and her new families expectations and rules. She is very responsive and I believe once trust has been established, training will be fun and rewarding for both her and her family. She can be shy of people initially, but given time she warms up quickly and just loves to love. Ada has not been on a leash, although we are going to try and work on that if time permits, but the family must expect to have to work with her on that. She is going to need a family that is sensitive to the fact that all she has known is a high kill shelter and then the safety of the rescue, so it is going to be a big transition for her. Having another dog in the family would be a huge benefit for her, but an active, loving family is the priority in this wonderful girls perfect match. Ada has never shown any kind of aggression with dogs or humans, she is good with kids, and just like with adults she will most likely be a little wary to start with. 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 Ada 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: 17-04-23-00222ERNIE (male)

Weimaraner Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    ERNIE 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 12 August 2015 and weighs around 36 pounds. We do not know what breed Ernie is although he does have some resemblance to the 'American Blue Lacy' dog. When Ernie first got to the rescue he was very fearful of people and it was clear that he had been abused. Within a short time he started to decompress and relax and realize that not all humans are bad. He has come out of his shell and is an extremely affectionate, loving boy. Ernie is a ... (Read More)very sweet boy, who is non-imposing and will wait patiently for your attention to give him some love or a belly rub or treat. Ernie walks great on the leash, he rides great in the car, he is house-trained and is a gentle soul. He is good with other dogs, and likes to run and chase with his friends. He is not a dog that enjoys chasing around with lots of dogs, but prefers his few select friends. When Ernie wants some quiet time, he will go into another room or find somewhere quiet to relax and chill out. He takes treats very gently, knows some basic commands and is very well mannered. Ernie does not have an alpha personality and will be submissive to a strong alpha dog, although I do believe that with a submissive dog he would step up and take the more dominant alpha role and be very comfortable doing so. We do not have cats in the rescue so are unable to comment on how he would be around them. He doesn't show any interest in the birds or squirrels we feed on the front porch and he is great with the small dogs and puppies when we have had them in rescue. Ernie was adopted out in 2017, but sadly after 3 months had to be returned to the rescue. He did not like the 21 year son in the family and had become dominant in the family, barking and lunging whenever the son came in. This behaviour wasn't dealt with in a way that Ernie would understand it wasn't acceptable and so he felt that he was in charge of his family and home and became protective. Since being at the rescue, Ernie has not showed any sign of aggressive behaviour, other than once when he had only been back a few days and a friend came in and he started barking. I immediately told him NO and instructed him to go outside in which he did immediately. After a few minutes he pushed his head through the dog door and I then invited him back into the house where he went up to my friend and stood beside them waiting patiently to be petted. Ernie is going to need a family that is aware that he needs a strong alpha family who ensures he knows that he doesn't need to be in charge as the humans are there for that, something he has no problem understanding here at the rescue. He needs a family that understands any sign of negative behaviour needs a consequence so that he can learn what he is doing is wrong and not acceptable. Removing him from the room or location is and has been very effective. Ernie can get jumpy around sudden movements, which is no doubt from his abusive time in Texas and so it is important that his new family are always aware of this also. Ernie is truly an amazing dog, he always has a smile on his face and he is so gentle and loving, he just needs the right family environment where he can continue to learn and adapt. An active family that can take him on adventures and let him explore the world and all the sights, smells and sounds. ERNIE 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. 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.
