HARRIS is a young Australian Kelpie. He is neutered, rabies, core vaccies, de-wormed, heart-worm and tick disease tested negative and micro-chipped. He has an estimated date of birth of 26 December 2015 and weighs around 30 pounds.
HARRIS is a confident young boy, who acts more like a 7-8 month pup who when he arrived at the rescue was a little too confident with the other dogs. After a few days he has learnt more how to behave and not be jumping all over the other dogs. He loves to play and chase them and the balls, but then will come and sneak up on my chair and cuddle and fall asleep.
HARRIS does need a family that has time to work on basic and advanced obedience training. He is very responsive and eager to please and loves treats so training should be easy and fun. We do encourage families to work on training themselves as this allows both family and dog to learn each others personalities and body language and helps them to learn expectations and boundaries.
HARRIS would love a family that will take him on road trips and adventures to different places so that he can explore the sights, smells and sounds the world has to offer.
We currently feed a 4* (a per www.dogfoodadvisor.com) GRAIN FREE food along with pro-bioitics and immune support supplements.
We do not have cats at the rescue so we are unable to say how he would react around cats.
HARRIS is available for adoption through Give a Dog a Home, German Shepherd Dog Rescue for an adoption fee of $350. 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.

HARRIS 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.
