JACK was saved from Texas where most shelters have to kill dogs for space after just 3 days. JACK is neutered, rabies, core vaccines, de-wormed, heartworm & tick-disease tested (Snap 4dx) negative and micro-chipped. He has an estimated date of birth of 1 October 2015 and as of December 2016 weighed around 14 pounds.
JACK is a handsome boy with a little curl in his tail. At first he can seem a little aloof, but he just needs to feel safe and secure and then is a total sweetheart, full of love and affection that he just wants to share.
JACK would suit a family that is familiar with small breed dogs, someone who understands the needs of small breed dogs. He would benefit a life of adventures and exploration and then cuddles on the couch at night before bed. JACK currently lives with all size dogs ranging from 6 pound chi's to 95 pound German Shepherds and gets on great with them all. We do NOT have cats at the rescue so cannot comment on how he would be with them.
We have dog doors in the house and JACK uses them to go out and play or to do his business, however, I also have pee-pads inside and I think he uses those also. It would be wise to expect the odd accident until he learns her new routine and to let you know he needs to go outside.
JACK would benefit from an active, fun family that has the time to work with him on his obedience and manners, who would take him on adventures and road trips and let him explore the sights, sounds and smells the world has to offer. He would benefit from a family that has the time to work with him on basic and advanced obedience training. By working together both JACK and his humans can learn each others body language and personality, expectations and boundaries can be set and with self-training a stronger bond formed.
We currently feed SPORTMIX Wholesomes Chicken Meal & Rice Formula, a 4* (a per www.dogfoodadvisor.com) GRAIN FREE food along with pro-bioitics and immune support supplements listed on the available dogs page!
JACK is available for adoption through 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.

JACK 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. If there are options to arrange transport, we will work with you to make it happen.
