DRAX was saved from a high kill shelter in Texas, where dogs generally have just 3 days to be saved before they are killed for space. DRAX is neutered, core vaccines, rabies, de-wormed, heartworm tested negative and micro-chipped. He has an estimated date of birth of 2 February 2016 and weighs around 35.00 pound. He has been listed as a German Shepherd Dog Mix. We have no way of knowing the exact breed, so it is up to individuals to decide what breed they think is most likely.
DRAX was temporarily with a foster family in Texas until transport to the rescue in Sebec, Maine on 22nd February 2018. This is what his foster family said about him. " Drax is good around other dogs, likes alone time on his bed whilst he watches what is going on.
When Drax arrived at the rescue in Sebec, Maine he was a little confused but was put in a kennel with his best buddie Astro. Both boys get on great with other dogs and each other. They wrestle and play with the toys and enjoy the company of each other and their neighbours when they are in the outside run and play through the chain link fence.
Drax has a tendency to chew when he is bored, as do almost all dogs and so he does need to be kept mentally stimulated and have an active lifestyle. He is great with people has been gentle around children, walks on the leash, rides wonderfully in a car and is very responsive and would be very easy to train.
Drax would enjoy a family that likes to go on adventures, who will work and train him and keep his mind challenged and play games and cuddle with him.
We do not recommend dog parks for several weeks, if not months, it is so very important for families and dogs to form a strong bond and get to know each other before exposing them to the potential dangers of dog parks. Although all GaDaH dogs are very well socialized with other dogs, lots of other dogs have not had the benefit of this socialization and do not always know how to play and act with other dogs. You also do not know the control the other families have over their dogs and you should always have a good recall for your adopted dog before going to dog parks.
DRAX is available for adoption for a REDUCED ADOPTION FEE of $300 in hopes to find his perfect family since he has been here at the rescue for several months.
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.
