MAXINE was saved from San Antonio Animal Care Services, a High Kill Shelter in Texas a day before she was due to be KILLED. We think she is an Italian Greyhound mix, but really have no way of knowing her breed for sure.
MAXINE is spayed, rabies, core vaccines, lepto vaccine, de-wormed, micro-chipped. She is currently on monthly heartworm prevention, and will need to be tested when she is around 9-12 months old. MAXINE has an estimated date of birth of 26 May 2015-. She weighs around 12 pounds.
MAXINE is a very loving, affectionate, excitable young pup. She makes the cutest noise when she is happy to see you and her tail wags so hard her whole body wags with it. She is very playful with the other dogs in rescue and is not intimidated by the big German Shepherds and is happy to play with those also.
MAXINE loves attention and as much as she is high energy and always running around, she loves to curl up on your lap and cuddle up.
MAXINE will benefit from basic and advanced training with her family. This will help with the bonding and will help all humans and MAXINE set and learn boundaries, expectations and learn each others body language. MAXINE would love a family that will take her to lots of places and explore the sights, sounds and smells that the world has to offer. She does jump up, but is responsive and generally well mannered. She is very eager to please and so this would make training not only pleasurable for her and her family, but quicker and easier.
MAXINE is available for adoption through Give a Dog a Home, German Shepherd Dog Rescue for an adoption fee of $350
If you feel that you have the heart and home to give this beautiful young girl who was close to being killed a wonderful life, please go to our website, under the APPLICATION tab, complete, then submit the APPLICATION. Our process takes around 3-7 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.
MAXINE is currently located at the rescue in Sebec, Maine, however, we post in states along the east coast where transport is available.this gives our precious saved souls more exposure and once adopted, we are able to save more dogs from the kill shelters in Texas that get 3 days before they are killed.
We love it when families can take a trip to meet the dogs before taking them home, but understand this is not always possible and so work in arranging transport to or closer to families homes. This can come at an additional cost, generally between $100 - $150 and is paid directly to the transport.
