MARTY and Hazel were saved from a high kill shelter in Texas where dogs have just 3 dogs to be saved. MARTY & Hazel are neutered/spayed, core vaccines, rabies, de-wormed, monthly preventatives, heartworm and tick disease tested negative and micro-chipped. They have an estimated date of birth of 15 December 2017 and at the time of rescue in the middle of April 2019, weighed around 60.00 pounds. They are listed as a German Shepherd / Hound mix. We have no way of knowing the exact breed, it is up to individuals to decide what breed they think is most likely.
MARTY is very bonded with HAZEL and we are looking to adopt them together for an adoption fee of $600 for both beauties.
They are great dogs, Hazel needs Marty, he is her big brother who she gets security from. She can be insecure when she is on her own, but has never been disruptive or aggressive, she will just bark a little when she is on her own.
They was with a foster family in Texas whilst waiting for transport and they said that they had no problems with them they was very happy and they was apparently considering adopting them - of course being taken away from what they thought was there forever home, put on transport for 3 days and arriving here kind of set them back a little bit and of course the rescue being them living with a lot of dogs, as oppose to a family where they are getting lots of love, attention, walks, training and such keeps dogs a lot happier. The
Marty is a lot more confident than Hazel, but he can still be a little wary of new people and places, which isn't necessarily a bad thing - I would just recommend taking things easy with them and let them settle in then seeing how things go - they are a lot of fun and love to play and chase together.
HAZEL is apparently great with cats and has been known to have cats snuggle up with her. Marty has not been round cats as much and so the family was not 100% sure, but feel he would be great once he has any curiosity satisfied.
Although both Marty and Hazel are very responsive, they like all dogs need to be trained and learn the rules, boundaries and expectations of their new home and family. They are young big dogs and so lots of physical exercise with mental stimulation is what these wonderful two siblings need. They are wonderful, loving dogs and with an active, caring, fun loving family who understands they might need some time to adjust they would make amazing family additions.
All dogs (except dogs saved from China) are available for adoption for an adoption fee of $550.
Canadian adopters need to know that customs charge 15% taxes when entering into Canada. 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.
