NUGGET's Info...

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

NUGGET's Story...
NUGGET was saved from a shelter in Texas. She is spayed, rabies, core vaccines, de-wormed, heart-worm and tick disease (SNAP 4DX) tested negative and micro-chipped. She has been estimated date of birth of 13 March 2015 and weighs around 13 pounds.

NUGGET is a cute bundle of love. She is great with other dogs, big and little, she is confident and happy to go and explore her surroundings. She is a fun girl and loves to play and chase her friends here at the rescue. Then when playtime is over she just wants to snuggle up and get her share of the days love. We do not have cats in the rescue so are unable to comment on how he would be around them.

​NUGGET does need some training and we recommend that families spend time with her working on basic obedience and manners, this helps to set boundaries, expectations and allows both NUGGET and her humans to learn more about each others personality and body language.

NUGGET rides great in a car and likes to go on adventures so she can explore lots of new places. She is good with children although she does get very excitable and jump up and doesn't keep still for long. All of which can easily be trained out of her with consistency by all family members. It is important that all children understand she is not a toy and will need her own space at times, but for the most part would love to play and snuggle with them.

NUGGET would benefit from an active, fun family that has the time to take her on adventures and road trips and let her explore the sights, sounds and smells the world has to offer. She would benefit with play dates with other dogs and would love to meet lots of new people.

NUGGET will make a great family addition, she is fun, active and very loving and deserves a good family and home to call her own.

NUGGET 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 soul a wonderful life, please go to our website, under the APPLICATION tab, complete, then submit the APPLICATION.

NUGGET WILL BE 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

NUGGET, a New Brunswick Rat Terrier/Chihuahua dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Rat Terrier/Chihuahua for sale in New Brunswick, or seeking a Rat Terrier/Chihuahua dog from a breeder in New Brunswick.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in New Brunswick 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 New Brunswick 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 Rat Terrier/Chihuahua breeders who help with Rat Terrier/Chihuahua rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in New Brunswick paves the way for another one to be saved.
