OLIVIA was saved from a shelter in Texas. She is spayed, rabies, core vaccines, de-wormed, heart-worm and tick disease (SNAP 4DX) tested negative and micro-chipped. She has been estimated date of birth of 1 September 2016 and weighs around 10 pounds. We have no idea what breed she is for sure, we just go off what she appears to look like to us, you would need to do the same.
OLIVIA is a cute bundle of love. She loves to sit up on my knee, or hang out on the sofa, but most of all she loves to run and chase around with the other dogs. For a little dog, she has a lot of energy.
OLIVIA is great with other dogs, big and little, she is confident and happy to go and explore her surroundings. She is a little live wire who is going to make a family very happy and loved for sure.
OLIVIA does need some training and we recommend that families spend time with her working on basic obedience and manners, this helps to set boundaries, expectations and allows both OLIVIA and her humans to learn more about each others personality and body language.
OLIVIA rides great in a car and likes to go on adventures so she can explore lots of new places. She is good with children although she does get very excitable and jump up and doesn't keep still for long. All of which can easily be trained out of her with consistency by all family members. It is important that all children understand she is not a toy and will need her own space at times, but for the most part would love to play and snuggle with them.
OLIVIA would benefit from an active, fun family that has the time to take her on adventures and road trips and let her explore the sights, sounds and smells the world has to offer. She would benefit with play dates with other dogs and would love to meet lots of new people.
We do not have cats in the rescue so are unable to comment on how she would be around them.
OLIVIA is available for adoption through Give a Dog a Home, German Shepherd Dog Rescue for an adoption fee of $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.

OLIVIA 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. There is a local hotel in Dover-Foxcroft that is pet-friendly (approx 6 miles) and several in Bangor (approx 45 miles). There are also lots of 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.
