TOBI is neutered, rabies, core vaccines, de-wormed, heart-worm and tick disease tested negative and micro-chipped. He has an estimated date of birth of 15 October 2015 and as of October 2016 weighed approximately 41 pounds.
TOBI originally came from a high kill shelter in Texas where dogs generally have just 3 days to be saved before they are killed due to the thousands of stray dogs that sadly are in desperate need of life of the streets and ultimately a home of their own.
TOBI is a complete love bug, who is a high energy, happy, fun loving boy. He does get excitable and jump up a little, which is very common with dogs we save from the kill shelters, but with some guidance and training he will soon learn how to behave in a nice manner. TOBI does walk on the leash, but does pull a little, but nothing that a little bit of guidance and practice won't solve. With TOBI being around a year old, we do not think he will grow much more, so is a nice medium 40-50 pound dog.
TOBI is great with other dogs, he is playful and loves to chase and wrestle with the other dogs and is quite happy chewing on a deer antler or hoof. TOBI lives amongst dogs of all sizes and ages, ranging from 6 pound chi mixes to 95 pound German Shepherds and has adapted great with all of them. We do NOT have cats at the rescue so we cannot comment on how he would be around them.
TOBI would love an active family that will take him on road trips and adventures to 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 his basic and advanced obedience training. By working together both TOBI 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. TOBI is very smart and responsive and training would be relatively easy and fun.
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!
TOBI 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.

TOBI 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. There is a local lodge in Sebec, a few hotels in Dover-Foxcroft (approx 6 miles) and several in Bangor (approx 45 miles). There are also lots of 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 for transport, we will work with you for the most convenient option.
