APPLICATION: If this dog has stolen your heart, don't wait! Please apply online now to be considered as a potential adopter. DOG: PATTY GENDER: FEMALE DOB: 04-16-17 WEIGHT: 15 lbs. approx BREED: Maltese Mix LOCATION: Delhi, LA ADOPTION FEE: $450.00 (includes transport) Lately it seems people are forced to make difficult decisions more and more just to survive this economy. People are forced to cut back with rising prices of just about everything. Sadly, we are seeing an increase in one of the hardest decisions anyone would have to make; giving up a beloved pet. Imagine the heartbreak of having to turn your family member in to a rescue, not knowing what will happen to him or her. Imagine how sad, lonely, and abandoned this pet feels, wondering why they were left alone and if their family will ever come back. This is the sad situation Patty is currently in, and we are hoping to find this sweet girl a new, loving home as soon as possible. Patty is a 6 year old, 10 pound Maltese mix who was surrendered to us recently. Foster mom says she is quite charming and loves to watch every move everyone makes. She is a bit timid at first, but she seems very interested in what’s going on, and warms up quickly to whomever gives her attention. Patty is in perfect health, is very active, and loves to play outside. She gets along very well with all the other dogs in the home, but enjoys barking at the cats. Because she is in a fenced area, we don’t know if her barking at them is because she wants to play with them or chase them, so a new home with a cat would be questionable and would need close supervision. She is, however, great with children, and has never shown any aggression toward the children she is currently around in any situation so far. We do always stress, regardless of behavior, children and dogs should never be left unsupervised. All dogs, like humans, have certain traits, however, it is important to know that dogs and humans, regardless of the breed or ethnic group, are all social family oriented and their characteristics are only one of their many awesome qualities. When making the decision to add a new member to your family, researching breeds is always recommended in order to make the perfect match. Maltese are affectionate toy dogs and greets everyone as a friend. The irresistible Maltese face' with its big, dark eyes and black gumdrop nose' can win over any skeptic. Maltese are hardy and adaptable pets. They make alert watchdogs who are fearless in a charming toy-dog way, and they are game little athletes on the agility course. Maltese are low-shedding, long-lived, and happy to make new friends of all ages. Sometimes stubborn and willful, they respond well to rewards-based training. Overall, a playful, charming, and gentle breed. This is a sprightly, vigorous dog who excels not only as a companion but also as a therapy dog and but most of all, she loves to be with her people. If you have never owned a Maltese, dive into the dog breed world with Patty and discover the behavior and personality that makes her such a beloved family member—this breed has got it all and one of the most popular breeds in the USA We would love to find Patty a new, loving home so her previous family knows she is safe and loved. Party deserves to feel safe and surrounded by a doting family. She a wonderful little girl who will make a great companion to any family! 3) HEARTWORM POSITIVE DOGS WE HAVE FOUR DOGS THAT NEED HEARTWORM TREATMENT DARBY**SHELLY**MARSHA**MONA Heartworm is very expensive and we are looking for donations for help.

You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.   MONA was transferred to GaDaH from a high kill shelter in Texas on 22nd April 2023. We take a lot of pictures and videos and don't always have the time to post them on the dogs individual webpage and adoption site, so we ask that you go to the rescue  YouTube channel  and  photo albums on our Facebook page  to see a LOT of pictures and videos.      MONA is spayed rabies, core vaccines, heartworm/tick tested negative. She is on monthly prevention, microchipped, has an estimated date of birth of 30 March 2012 and at the time of transport weighed 18 pounds. We have no way of knowing what the actual breed is, so it is up to people to look at the pictures and video's to make up their own mind. MONA was severely matted when she was picked up by animal control, however, was shaved down at the shelter. She was with a foster family for just over a week and did great. MONA is available for adoption from Give a Dog a Home Rescue in Sebec, Maine for an adoption fee of $550.       This adoption fee covers the cost of running a brick and mortar rescue as well as any transport, veterinary, food,   treats, toys costs and the many expenses that rescues endure to keep the pets in their care safe, and happy.     Be sure to read all the information and if interested, go to the rescue website to submit an adoption application. The rescue buys food in bulk, by the truck load and there are a variety of brands and flavors. None of the food given is less than a 4* food rating. There have not been issues with eating any of the varying foods. It is important that you do your research on the ingredients and speak to your vet or a nutritionist on grain vs grain free! &#226&#128&#139You MUST understand that dogs need time to decompress and adapt to their new environment and home. It is a HUGE transition they make from the kill shelter, being vetted, on transport for 3 days and arriving in Maine where the temperature and such is very different to what they have only known. In rescue there is what is known as the "3 Point Rule" Days 1-3 your dog is stressed, anxious, confused as to where they are now. Weeks 1-3 your dog is adjusting, settling in, learning things. At the 3-month point, your dog understands they are home, and have built up a trusting relationship where they feel loved and secure. 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 ADOPTION INFO tab, complete, then submit the APPLICATION. Our process takes around 1-2 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 we can schedule your appointment to come to the rescue in Sebec, Maine for meet/greet/adopt Please do NOT submit an application if you are not looking to take home a new best friend within the next few weeks. ALL Dogs are 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.
