PLEASE ENSURE YOU READ ALL THE INFORMATION PROVIDED TO LEARN ALL ABOUT DAWN, HER LOCATION AND ADOPTION OPTIONS.
JASPER is neutered, rabies, core vaccines, heart-worm & tick disease tested negative (4dx), de-wormed and micro-chipped. He has an estimated date of birth of 3rd November 2015 and at the time of rescue November 2016, weighed approximately 65 pounds.
JASPER originally came from a high kill shelter in Texas where dogs generally have just 3 days to be saved before they are killed due to the thousands of stray dogs that sadly are in desperate need of life of the streets and ultimately a home of their own. We do NOT have cats at the rescue so cannot comment on how he would behave around cats.
JASPER is a handsome, loving, intelligent boy. He has had some training as he knows the command sit and is very responsive to general instructions, no, leave it, ect. JASPER being young does get excited and does like to play a lot, either wrestling or chasing the other dogs, playing tug, or playing with a ball. He will bring you his toy of choice in hopes you will play with him, but if you are too busy he is happy to entertain himself.
JASPER rides well in the car, he walks ok on the leash, but of course would always benefit with some practice. He is great with all humans although with small children it is best to watch him so as he doesn't accidentally knock them over. He has never shown any signs of aggression towards people or other animals, or over toys and food.
JASPER 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.
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!
JASPER 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.
If you feel that you have the heart and home to give this handsome boy a wonderful life, please go to our website, under the APPLICATION tab, complete, then submit the APPLICATION. Our process takes around 2-4 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 you complete and submit the contract, make payment and then we can work out the pick up / transport arrangements.
Please do NOT submit an application if you are not looking to take home a new best friend within the next few weeks.
JASPER 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.
