NAOMI was saved from a high kill shelter in Texas where dogs have just 3 dogs to be saved. NAOMI is spayed, core vaccines, rabies, de-wormed, heart worm and tick disease tested negative and micro-chipped. She has an estimated date of birth of 8 October 2014 and at the time of rescue at the beginning of December 2018 weighed around 23.40 pounds. She is listed as a Corgi / Shepherd Mix. We have no way of knowing the exact breed, it is up to individuals to decide what breed they think is most likely.
NAOIM is a very sweet, affectionate, fun loving girl who is great with people, children and other dogs and would do great with a family either as the only dog or with another dog for company. She does like to be alpha girl so a more submissive dog would be good. She has never been aggressive in any way and lives at the rescue with 15 dogs of all ages, breeds and sizes.
Although Naomi has been estimated to be around 4 years old she still loves to run and play and go on adventures. As you can see with the video's and pictures, she has a lot of fun with other dogs and lives with them in harmony she would just not do well in a home with a strong alpha dog. She rides great in the car and is very responsive and would be very easy and fun to train. She walks great on the leash. She uses the dog door to go outside to play and do her business although she most likely won't know to let her new family know to let her go outside.
NAOMI is extremely affectionate and is great with all people, at vet visits everyone loved her, a friend brings her 10 year old granddaughter and she loves to play with her. We do not have cats or livestock at the rescue so cannot comment how she would be with or around them. She would make a great family dog, or companion to someone who wants that special buddy to take everywhere with them.
She will need a family that understands the importance of training and we encourage all families to work on basic and advanced training as a family so that boundaries and expectations can be set and both Luna and her humans can learn each others body language and personalities and form a stronger bond and understanding of each other.
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.
