PLEASE ENSURE YOU READ ALL THE INFORMATION PROVIDED TO LEARN ALL ABOUT DAWN, HER LOCATION AND ADOPTION OPTIONS.

NOVA 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 at the time of rescue November 2016, weighed approximately 43 pounds.​

NOVA 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. We do NOT have cats at the rescue so cannot comment on how she would behave around cats.

NOVA is so sweet, precious and is a little timid, but has more curiosity than cats do. She likes to watch what is going on and if no one is looking she will sneak around to investigate anything that catches her eye. She is definitely a counter thief and a collector of things she shouldn't have, but this is in a mischievous manner and most likely due to her having been left as a stray and having to defend herself.

NOVA does have very thin hair and it will take a while for her proper coat to grow in, it is recommended that she is put on coat supplements, fish oil, vitamin c, honey, coconut oil and such to help it grow. She is petite in frame although does have some weight to gain. 

NOVA is great with the other dogs and is very playful with them, she does have a bit more interest in the smaller dogs and so I am not sure I would trust her with cats or other small dogs, unless she is going to be supervised all the time. Again this might just be from her having lived as a stray, she has not tried to harm any of the small dogs, but then I do not let her alone with them. I do think it is more mischievous play, but again, not something I want to take a chance on here at the rescue.

NOVA walks ok on a leash, but does need some practice, she can be shy going to new places and needs to build up her courage and so taking her places with little distractions would be best for her and then build on that. She is a very social girl and once she has the confidence would love meeting people and going to new places. 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 her mischievousness and can work with her on that.

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.

If you feel that you have the heart and home to give this precious stunning girl 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.

NOVA 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 hotel in Dover-Foxcroft that is pet-friendly (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 to arrange transport, we will work with you to make it happen.
