GRACIE was saved from Texas where dogs in the kill shelters have 3 days to be saved before they are killed. GRACIE is spayed, rabies, core vaccines, de-wormed, heart-worm and tick disease (SNAP 4DX) tested negative and micro-chipped. She has been estimated to be around 2 years old and at the time of rescue (December 2016) weighs around 45 pounds.
GRACIE is a very gentle sweet girl who wants nothing more than to have a nice, loving life with a family that will let her love them as much as they love her. She is very well-mannered and although might jump up occassionally this is more because the other dogs are doing it. She has the wire-hair to minimal shedding and as long as regular brushing, low maintenance grooming. GRACIE can be a little protective with food, however, since I free-feed at the rescue, she is learning to share with other dogs. She will give a little growl, but will stop when told no. She has not shown any aggression at all.
GRACIE 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 GRACIE uses them to go out and play or to do her business, however, It would be wise to expect the odd accident until she learns her new routine and to let you know she needs to go outside.
GRACIE 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. She would benefit from a family that has the time to work with her on basic and advanced obedience training. By working together both GRACIE and her 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!
GRACIE 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 GRACIE , 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.
GRACIE 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.
