VARESHKA was saved from a horrible shelter that provides dogs for the legal meat trade in China in the Yiwi City area, two hours outside of Shanghai. He, was saved by a wonderful rescue lady in China and together we are working on getting as many dogs from the shelter to the safety of GaDaH-CHINA in Sebec, Maine. When found he had canine distemper virus, pneumonia and demodex mange. Luckily for VARESHKA the Chinese do treat distemper, unlike here in the US where 99% of vets recommend instant euthanasia, and this strong amazing boy, with the help of amazing vets pulled through and was given the all-clear. We pay to get these dogs vetted, tested, quarantined and all other requirements to import them to the safety of the rescue in Sebec, Maine. The adoption fee's vary slightly depending on the weight and size of the dogs. VARESHKA's adoption fee is US $1,200 and covers the costs we incur to save these precious souls.
VARESHKA has been through the export and import quarantine requirements from China to the US. He has his rabies, core vaccines/lepto, heartworm, tick-disease and screw worm tested negative. He has been de-wormed, micro chipped and received any necessary monthly preventatives. He has an estimated date of birth of 15 September 2016 and he weighs around 13 pounds. We believe he is a Soft Coated Wheaton Terrier Mix but can not know for sure, it is up to you to look at him and decide what breed you think he could be. He arrives/ed in the United States on 25th October 2018, flying from Shanghai International airport, landing at Logan International Airport, MA and then was driven up to the rescue in Sebec, Maine. We are looking for families with knowledge of experience of the breed or similar breeds.
Until Vareshka arrives we don't know too much about him, but since he was given the all clear from the vets, he has been living with a foster family who absolutely adores him. She said he is very sweet, loving and affectionate and will miss him greatly.
WE DO NOT HAVE CATS OR LIVESTOCK AT THE RESCUE SO ARE UNABLE TO COMMENT ON HOW HE WILL ACT NEAR OR AROUND THEM.
We are looking for a relatively active family who will take him on adventures and let him enjoy the world, but understand that he might need to be introduced to things, noisy and places gradually.
VARESHKA is available for adoption from Give a Dog a Home, German Shepherd Dog Rescue which is located in Sebec, Maine, for an adoption fee of $1,200. This fee is not negotiable and is used to cover the extensive costs of vetting, quarantine requirements, documentation, flights and such to get him from China to Sebec, Maine.
We post in other states and in Canada to ensure our saved dogs get as much exposure as possible and the perfect families are found. Canadian adopters need to know that customs charge 15% taxes when entering into Canada.
Adoptive families MUST travel to the rescue in Sebec, Maine to meet and dog they are interested in adopting and if all goes well, take him/her home with them to start their new wonderful life.
