HANK is a fun loving, active, love bug. He is great with other dogs of all ages and sizes and has never shown any sign of aggression. We do not have cats in the rescue so are unable to comment on how he would be around them.
HANK is great with people, he loves to climb up on your lap for cuddles and then chase and play with the toys and tennis balls. He enjoys chasing and being chased by his rescue buddies and is happy sharing a pen with LORETTA and LESLIE. He loves to climb up on my knee and cuddle and get and share his love and kisses.
HANK would benefit from a family familiar with small breed dogs and their habits and traits. He is a small boy, but high energy and would love to go on lots of adventures to explore the sights, sounds and smells the world has to offer.
HANK, as with all rescue dogs are in need of basic and advanced training. We recommend that this is done with their family so that both humans and HANK can learn each others body language, personality, expectations and boundaries.
HANK 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.
HANK 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.
