SASSY's Info...

I am already spayed, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.

SASSY's Story...
Please take the time to read all information provided as it could answer some questions you may have.

SASSY was saved with her brother SIMON from Texas where most shelters have to kill dogs for space after just 3 days.

SASSY is spayed, rabies, core vaccines, de-wormed, heartworm & tick-disease tested (Snap 4dx) negative and micro-chipped. She has an estimated date of birth of 1 March 2016 and as of December 2016 weighed around 17 pounds.

SASSY is a fun, lively happy pup, she has more of a straight tail, but still has that precious squished face that just makes her so adorable. She is quite bonded with her brother SIMON and gets on great with other dogs from small chi's through to 80 pound German Shepherd Dogs. We do NOT have cats at the rescue so cannot comment on how she would be around them.

SASSY would suit a family that is familiar with small breed dogs, someone who has the time and patience to work with her and train her to at least basic and advanced obedience. She would benefit a life of adventures and exploration and then cuddles on the couch at night before bed.

We have dog doors in the house and SIMON uses them to go out and play or to do his business, She has not had any accidents in the house, however, since he has 24 hour access to get outside it would be wise to possibly expect the odd accident until he learns her new routine and to let you know she needs to go outside.

SASSY 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 her basic and advanced obedience training. By working together both SASSY 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 GRAIN FREE food along with pro-bioitics and immune support supplements listed on the available dogs page!

SASSY 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.

SASSY 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.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

SASSY, a Halifax Pug dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Pug for sale in Halifax, or seeking a Pug dog from a breeder in Halifax.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Halifax 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 Halifax 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 Pug breeders who help with Pug rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Halifax paves the way for another one to be saved.
