SUZETTE was saved from Texas where most shelters have to kill dogs for space after just 3 days. She is located at the rescue in Sebec, Maine. We post in other states and Canada where our dogs get adopted.
SUZETTE is spayed, rabies, core vaccines, de-wormed, heartworm & tick-disease tested (Snap 4dx) negative and micro-chipped. She weighs around 40 pounds and has an estimated date of birth of 1 February 2014.
SUZETTE can be a little wary initially but soon warms up when she knows she can trust and is a safe environment. She is very sweet and gentle and is a great size for a family pet. She is great with other dogs and loves to run and chase. She is responsive and eager to please so that she can get lots of loving and a good belly rub. She uses the dog doors to go in and out to play and do her business, I do not know if she knows to let you know she needs to go out as she has 24/7 access with the dog doors, but I am sure this is something that she would pick up quickly. I have not seen her with children, but as long as the children respected her and her space I do not think there would be any problems and think she would make an all round wonderful family pet.
We do not have cats at the rescue so cannot comment on how she would behave around them.
SUZETTE 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 SUZETTE 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!
SUZETTE 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.

SUZETTE 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.
