SHILOH was saved from Texas where most shelters have to kill dogs for space after just 3 days. She is located at the rescue in Sebec, Maine. We post in other states and Canada where our dogs get adopted.
SHILOH is spayed, rabies, core vaccines, de-wormed, heartworm & tick-disease tested (Snap 4dx) negative and micro-chipped. She weighs around 37 pounds and has an estimated date of birth of January 2016. We saved SHILOH with her sister BEATRICE and we would prefer to adopt them together.
SHILOH is a sweet quiet girl who tends to stick close to her sister and follows her move. She is gaining confidence, but it is clear these sisters are very bonded as they hang out, play and sleep together. She does play with the other dogs and is good with dogs of all ages and sizes ranging from 8 pound chi's up to 95 pound German Shepherds. She does use the dog door to get in and out to play and do her business. I am not sure she would know to let you know she needs to go out, but do not think that it would take long for her to learn.
SHILOH is wary of humans initially but once she has gained trust she will come up for some belly rubs and ear scratching, the more confidence she is getting the more her beautiful personality is coming out.
She is a working dog breed and so needs a lot of physical and mental exercise and stimulation. A family that is family with the breed or working dog would be best.
We do NOT have cats at the rescue so are unable to say how she would be around cats.
SHILOH would benefit from an active, fun family that has the time to work with her on her obedience and manners, who would take her on adventures and road trips and let her explore the sights, sounds and smells the world has to offer. She would benefit from a family that has the time to work with her on basic and advanced obedience training. By working together both SHILOH 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.
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!
SHILOH 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.

SHILOH 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.
