NINA was saved from one of the shelters we work with in Texas. Se is SPAYED, rabies, core vaccines, de-wormed, heart-worm and tick-disease tested; Negative and micro-chipped. She has an estimated date of birth of 2 May 2015 and has an estimated weight of 25 pounds. NINA was listed as a Corgi / Collie, however, I see more of a Corgi / German Shepherd mix. We have no way of knowing the true breed, it is up to you to decide what you think she breed/s is.
NINA is great with all of the dogs here at the rescue.She absolutely loves to run, chase and wrestle with the dogs. She enjoys chewing on hooves and Kongs when she is having quiet time, but she is definitely happiest when she is running and playing. She is very affectionate and loves to have her belly rubbed and ears scratched. We do NOT have cats on the rescue so I am not in a position to comment on how he will be with cats.
NINA would suit a relatively active fun family that would take her on adventures and road trips and let her explore the sights, sounds and smells the world has to offer. She rides great in the car. She would benefit from a family that has the time to work with her on basic and advanced obedience training. By working together both NINA
and her humans can learn each others body language and personality, expectations and boundaries can be set and with self-training a stronger bond formed.
If she is adopted to a family that doesn't have another dog, we strongly encourage that play dates are arranged with friends and families dogs so NINA can play and let her socialize with other dogs as she does truly enjoy other dogs company and play.
NINA is located in our kennel building and uses the extreme weather dog door to get in and out to her run. She has not had any accidents in the kennel.
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!
NINA will make a great family addition to an experienced family, she is a great size, but still full of energy. She is fun, active and very loving and deserves a good family and home to call her own.
NINA is available for adoption from Give a Dog a Home, German Shepherd Dog Rescue for an adoption fee of US $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.

NINA 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. Sebec is located just outside the towns of Dover-Foxcroft and Milo (approx 8 miles) and approx 45 miles from Bangor. There are also lots of hotels, motels, pet friendly accommodations and 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.
