ROSIE-1 was saved from a high kill shelter in Texas where dogs have just 3 dogs to be saved and transported to the rescue in Sebec, Maine. ROSIE-1 is spayed, core vaccines, rabies,heartworm and tick disease tested negative, de-wormed, monthly preventatives and micro-chipped. She has an estimated date of birth of 22 February 2019 and at the time of rescue in the end of August 2019, weighed around 38.00 pounds. The shelter has a breed listing of German Shepherd Dog. We have no way of knowing the exact breed, it is up to individuals to decide what breed they think is most likely.
ROSIE-1 arrived at the rescue on Thursday, 12th September and she is just a full bundle of energy. She is a happy-go-lucky girl who loves to chase and run and play with her friends she has made since she arrived at the rescue. She is great with other dogs and has no problem living amongst small dogs, puppies up middle and large dogs of all ages and personalities.
ROSIE did have a meet and greet and was very cautious, not wanting to go near them, barking - not aggressively, but as dogs do when they are not too comfortable. I am sure it would only take her a little time to get more comfortable, but this is something to be considered. Again, this is nothing aggressive, just her letting us know that she wasn't happy with these strangers in her place. She is still young and has no doubt been through a lot and a dog being cautious can be a good thing as it lets everyone know that we need to go slow.
Once she is comfortable she is an absolute joy, she is your typical young GSD, full of life, full of energy and just wanting to play love and have fun. She needs an active lifestyle and a family that understands the importance of training, mental stimulation and socialization to different places and experiences.
WE ARE NOT ABLE TO COMMENT HOW SHE WILL BE AROUND CATS OR LIVESTOCK.
ROSIE-1 is available for adoption for an adoption fee of US $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, general day to day cost of running a brick and mortar rescue and anything else that is needed. Canadian adopters need to know that customs charge 15% taxes when entering into Canada.
