Melvin - foster Needed's Story...
We have had our eye on Melvin for a while! We are so happy that he is healthy and ready to come see us and find his forever family.

Melvin is a 2 year old Shepherd mix and weighs around 55lbs. Originally he wandered up to a house belonging to a family member of one of the rescuers. It looked like he had been clipped by a car; the vet put his hip back into place but it wouldn't stay and poor Melvin was in pain. Not any more! Melvin has now had FHO surgery and also was treated for heartworm disease. He was a rock star at the vet office and has a whole fan club there. Our partner rescue raised the money to have him taken care of and now he is a happy, healthy boy who loves to run around and play with the other dogs in his foster family. He may always have a slight limp because of the leg length discrepancy but it doesn't slow him down one bit. His foster mom says he knows how to sit, shake, stay, and fetch. They have five children and Melvin loves them all! He is fine with dogs and cats, and loves everyone he meets. This guy is just plain awesome!

Melvin needs a foster family in order to come north and of course a forever family!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Melvin - foster Needed, a kennebunkport Shepherd (Unknown Type) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Shepherd (Unknown Type) for sale in kennebunkport, or seeking a Shepherd (Unknown Type) dog from a breeder in kennebunkport.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in kennebunkport already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a kennebunkport breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Shepherd (Unknown Type) breeders who help with Shepherd (Unknown Type) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in kennebunkport paves the way for another one to be saved.
