TOBIE-GIRL was saved from a high kill shelter in Texas with her pup where dogs have just 3 dogs to be saved. TOBIE-GIRL is spayed, core vaccines, rabies, de-wormed, heartworm and tick disease tested negativeq and micro-chipped. She has an estimated date of birth of 5 June 2015 and at the time of rescue at the beginning of December 2018 weighed around 46.00 pounds. She is listed as a German Shepherd Mix. We have no way of knowing the exact breed, it is up to individuals to decide what breed they think is most likely. She was saved and very bonded with her pup NYX.
Tobie-Girl is extrememly bonded with Nyx, however, having been at the rescue since the middle of December it is not good to keep them here in hopes that someone will eventually want to love them both, so it has been decided that we will find a home for Tobie-Girl and then one for Nyx, but of course still welcome anyone wanting to adopt them both.
Tobie-Girl does use the dog door to go in and out, although she might not know to let you know that she needs to go out, so a few accidents should be expected in her transition period into her new home, life and routine.
Tobie-girl is a mellow, gentle girl, well mannered and very loving. She is high energy and will need an active life-style. Going on adventures, hikes, treks, walks and of course road trips for new adventures.
We do not recommend dog parks especially with him being so young for several 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.
We do NOT have cats or livestock at the rescue so cannot comment how they will behave in or around them.
All dogs (except dogs saved from China) are available for adoption for an adoption fee of $550. Since both dogs must be adopted together there is a reduced adoption fee of US $1,000 for both Nyx and Tobie-Girl. 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.
