Facts about HAROLD

  • Breed: Chihuahua Mix
  • Color: Brown/Chocolate
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
HAROLD was saved from a shelter in Texas. He 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 April 2015 and weighs around 10 pounds. We do not know for sure the breed of the dogs we save, we just guess from their appearance, if you think they are a different breed, then that is what they most likely are.

HAROLD is a sweet boy, who can get a little overwhelmed at the rescue. He shares a pen with Ginger who is similar size and very quiet and they get along great. HAROLD clearly wants to come out and play and run around, but he is apprehensive at first. Once he feels like he is safe and will be ok, he comes out to explore and if I am sat down will come up to climb on my knee and get lots of love and affection, which he obviously enjoys and gives back his love and kisses.

HAROLD has only been around a few small dogs and he does great with them. He can be nervous of new things and places initially and so will need a patient family to help him build his confidence. We do not have cats in the rescue so are unable to comment on how he would be around them.

HAROLD, as like all dogs are in need to basic and advanced training. We recommend families work together with him so that both humans and HAROLD can learn each others personalities, body language and have boundaries and expectations set.

HAROLD would benefit from a family that would take him to lots of places so that he can explore the world and all its sights, smells and sounds the world has to offer and of course to help build up his confidence. He rides great in the car and of course there is no better place for him than someone's lap, which is where he is happiest.

HAROLD 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. Our process takes around 2-4 days, and ensuring your references are aware that we will be calling, could speed up the process. Once you have been approved, we discuss any questions in regards to the dog you are wanting to adopt, then you complete and submit the contract, make payment and then we can work out the pick up / transport arrangements.

Please do NOT submit an application if you are not looking to take home a new best friend within the next few weeks.

HAROLD 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.
