MISHKA was saved from a horrible shelter that provides dogs for the legal meat trade in China in the Yiwi City area, two hours outside of Shanghai. He, was saved by a wonderful rescue lady in China and together we are working on getting as many dogs from the shelter to the safety of GaDaH-CHINA in Sebec, Maine. When found he had severe skin infections, his coat was extremely matted and he had pneumonia. This small, yet strong amazing boy, with the help of amazing vets pulled through and was given the all-clear. We pay to get these dogs vetted, tested, quarantined and all other requirements to import them to the safety of the rescue in Sebec, Maine. The adoption fee's vary slightly depending on the weight and size of the dogs. MISHKA adoption fee is US $1,200 and covers the costs we incur to save these precious souls.
MISHKA has been through the export and import quarantine requirements from China to the US. He has his rabies, core vaccines/lepto, heartworm, tick-disease and screw worm tested negative. He has been de-wormed, micro chipped and received any necessary monthly preventatives. He has an estimated date of birth of 10 April 2016 and he weighs around 8 pounds. We believe he is a Poodle Mix but can not know for sure, it is up to you to look at him and decide what breed you think he could be. He arrives/ed in the United States on 25th October 2018, flying from Shanghai International airport, landing at Logan International Airport, MA and then was/will be driven up to the rescue in Sebec, Maine. We are looking for families with knowledge of experience of the breed or similar breeds.
Until Mishka arrives we don't know too much about him, but since he was saved from the concrete pound they call a shelter, he has been treated and boarded at the vets office and is a big hit with the staff.
WE DO NOT HAVE CATS OR LIVESTOCK AT THE RESCUE SO ARE UNABLE TO COMMENT ON HOW HE WILL ACT NEAR OR AROUND THEM.
We are looking for a relatively active family who will take him on adventures and let him enjoy the world, but understand that he might need to be introduced to things, noisy and places gradually. A family that understands the need for proper grooming and not allowing his hair to mat again and him suffer that pain.
MISHKA is available for adoption from Give a Dog a Home, German Shepherd Dog Rescue which is located in Sebec, Maine, for an adoption fee of $1,200. This fee is not negotiable and is used to cover the extensive costs of vetting, quarantine requirements, documentation, flights and such to get him from China to Sebec, Maine.
We post in other states and in Canada to ensure our saved dogs get as much exposure as possible and the perfect families are found. Canadian adopters need to know that customs charge 15% taxes when entering into Canada.
Adoptive families MUST travel to the rescue in Sebec, Maine to meet and dog they are interested in adopting and if all goes well, take him/her home with them to start their new wonderful life.
