found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already neutered, purebred, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.
FINCH was saved from Texas where dogs in the kill shelters have 3 days to be saved before they are killed. FINCH 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 March 2015 and at the time of rescue (December 2016) weighed around 12 pounds.
FINCH is the sweetest boy ever. He is so gentle and affectionate, although he can be nervous at first with people he doesn't know and at times does cower if you go to stroke him from above his head so it is best to approach him from his level. He has never shown any signs of aggression, just a little wary of people and that is most likely from whatever happened to him in his past.
FINCH currently lives with all size dogs ranging from 6 pound chi's to 95 pound German Shepherds and gets on great with them all. We do NOT have cats at the rescue so cannot comment on how he would be with them. We have dog doors in the house and FINCH uses them to go out and play or to do his business, however, It would be wise to expect the odd accident until he learns his new routine and to let you know he needs to go outside.
FINCH would benefit from an active, fun family that has the time to work with him on his obedience and manners, who would take him on adventures and road trips and let her 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 basic and advanced obedience training. By working together both FINCH 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.
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!
FINCH 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 are interested in adopting FINCH, please follow the link below to the adoption application and complete then submit. It generally takes 2-3 days to process applications, as long as we are able to speak to your vet and references.
FINCH 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. Sebec is located inbetween two small towns, Dover-Foxcroft and Milo, both approximately 6 miles away and the closest major city is Bangor (approx 45 miles). Many families travel and make a mini-vacation out of the trip and stay in beautiful Maine for the weekend, however, if this is not possible and there are options to arrange transport, we will work with you to make it happen.
