Nitro was saved from a high kill shelter in Texas, where dogs generally have just 3 days to be saved before they are killed for space. Nitro is Neutered, core vaccines, rabies, de-wormed, heartworm tested negative and micro-chipped. He has an estimated date of birth of 25 June 2017 and weighs around 35.00 pound. He has been listed as a White German Shepherd Dog We have no way of knowing the exact breed, so it is up to individuals to decide what breed they think is most likely.
Nitro is currently with his foster family in Texas and following is what his foster family said about him:
NITRO is a spunky and confident boy estimated to be 7 months old. He’s a stunning boy that is white with a champagne saddle. He has a lot to learn but will learn quickly with proper training. NITRO has abundant energy but when he sleeps, he sleeps hard…as most puppies do! He is potty trained, walks well on a leash, rides great in the car and gets along with other dogs. Due to being a stray and also being so young, he does have a food issue where other dogs are concerned. His foster mum is currently working with him. Until he feels secure with his own bowl of food, he should be fed separately from other dogs. With training and patience, I am confident he will “outgrow” this lack of manners! He is interested in cats (in a curious way, not aggressive) so they would need to be introduced gently. NITRO is so much fun, he has a humorous personality and will always be by your side or under your chair!
We do not recommend dog parks for several weeks, if not months, it is so very important for families and dogs to form a strong bond and get to know each other before exposing them to the potential dangers of dog parks. Although all GaDaH dogs are very well socialized with other dogs, lots of other dogs have not had the benefit of this socialization and do not always know how to play and act with other dogs. You also do not know the control the other families have over their dogs and you should always have a good recall for your adopted dog before going to dog parks.
NITRO is available for adoption from Give a Dog a Home, German Shepherd Dog Rescue for an adoption fee of $550.
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.

NITRO is located in TEXAS, whilst waiting transport to the rescue in Maine, hopefully by the end of February 2018. 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.
