ADAM's Info...

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

ADAM's Story...
ADAM 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 an estimated date of birth of 22 March 2016 and weighs around 10 pounds. We have no idea what breed he is for sure, we just go off what he appears to look like to us, you would need to do the same.

ADAM is a sweet boy, who can be shy at first, but his longing to come up and get cuddles and have his ear scratched and belly rubbed allows him to soon conquer that apprehension. Once he knows he can trust he will jump up on your chair and snuggle up beside you anxiously looking and willing you to give him all that love and attention that he deserves.

ADAM does great with the other dogs, ranging from 2 pound puppies up to 125 pound German Shepherd and many different ages, sizes and breeds in between. He will go up to them in his own time and make friends. We do not have cats in the rescue so are unable to comment on how he would be around them.

ADAM will need some training and we recommend that families spend time with him working on basic obedience and manners, this helps to set boundaries, expectations and allows both Adam and his humans to learn more about each others personality and body language.

ADAM rides great in a car and likes to go on adventures so he can explore lots of new places. He is good with children as long as he is able to approach them on his own terms and that they understand he is not a toy and will need his own space at times, but for the most part would love to play and snuggle with them.

ADAM would suit a family that is familiar with small breed dogs, who are willing to work with him on training and ensure he gets lots of socialization with humans and dogs. He would make a great lap-dog as he loves to snuggle but also loves to run and play.

ADAM 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.

ADAM 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

ADAM, a Halifax Chihuahua/Miniature Pinscher dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Chihuahua/Miniature Pinscher for sale in Halifax, or seeking a Chihuahua/Miniature Pinscher 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 Chihuahua/Miniature Pinscher breeders who help with Chihuahua/Miniature Pinscher rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Halifax paves the way for another one to be saved.
