BEAR initially can be a little wary and he likes to watch people and have the opportunity to approach them when he is comfortable. When he has accepted you are safe he gets very playful and is a happy, go-lucky boy, full of fun, life and energy, he is affectionate and loves to get cuddles and his belly rubbed and ear scratched. He gets on great with other dogs of all sizes. We do NOT have cats at the rescue so are unable to say how he would get on with cats.
BEAR is located in our kennel building and uses the extreme weather dog door to get in and out to his run. He has not had any accidents in the kennel.
BEAR would love a family that is active and can take him on long walks, hikes and adventures. He rides great in the car and has been friendly with everyone he has met so far, once he has chance to warm
BEAR will make a great family addition, he is fun, active and very loving and deserves a good family and home to call his own.
BEAR is available for adoption from 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.
BEAR 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. Sebec is located just outside the towns of Dover-Foxcroft and Milo (approx 8 miles) and approx 45 miles from Bangor. There are also lots of hotels, motels, pet friendly accommodations and 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.
