PAYASA was saved with her litter of 8 puppies from a high kill shelter in Texas where dogs have just 3 dogs to be saved. PAYASA is spayed, core vaccines, rabies, de-wormed, heartworm and tick disease tested negative and micro-chipped. She has an estimated date of birth of TBD and at the time of rescue at the beginning of December 2018 weighed around 52.00 pounds. She is listed as a Australian Cattle Dog. We have no way of knowing the exact breed, it is up to individuals to decide what breed they think is most likely.
Payasa has been great since being at the rescue, she was very well behaved whilst in the kennels and was recently brought over to the shop where she lives amongst 15 other dogs of all ages and sizes and has access to a large fenced in area out the back that she absolutely loves.
She is a fun loving and affectionate girl and she is very playful, often playing around when I kick the snow, barking and chasing around, she is definitely feeling a lot better, safe, comfortable and she knows she is loved. She was a little protective of her food when she first arrived which was why I had to put her in a kennel, but she has gotten a lot better and has been no problem living and sharing the feeding stations with the other dogs.
Payasa is absolutely ready for her forever family, she loves the outdoors, loves to chill out in front of the pellet stove, is great with other dogs, loves to play and chase humans, has been good around young teenage children and rides great in the car. She uses the dog door to go in and out to play or to do her business, although she most likely won't know how to let her new family know she needs to go outside.
We do not know how she is around cats or livestock.
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.
