Facts about SPENCER

  • Breed: Australian Kelpie Mix
  • Color: Black - With Tan, Yellow Or Fawn
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Male
SPENCER was transferred from a vet tech friend who needed help finding homes for the dogs she has saved from euthanasia in Texas. He is neutered, rabies, core vaccines, de-wormed, heart-worm and tick-disease tested; Negative and micro-chipped. He is approximately 1 year old.
SPENCER is a great boy, he is great with all the other dogs and the puppies just love him. He is mellow and laid back, but when it comes to play time his energy comes out and he will run and play as happy as can be. We do not have cats at the rescue and so cannot comment on how he will be around them. He is an affectionate boy and loves to give kisses.

SPENCER is living in the main room in the kennel building with the pups and some other dogs, he has access to a dog door to go outside and uses this to go out and do his business. I imagine that he is house-trained, however, he might not know to let you know he needs to go outside.

SPENCER would benefit from an active family who understands this intelligent, energetic breed. We encourage all families to work on basic and advanced training as a family so that boundaries and expectations can be set and both SPENCER and humans can learn each others body language and personalities and form a stronger bond and understanding of each other.

He would love to go on road trips and explore all the different sights, sounds and smells the world has to offer. He rides great in the car and walks ok the leash. I do not use crates at the rescue, unless for medical reasons.
SPENCER 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.

SPENCER ​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.
