PLEASE ENSURE YOU READ ALL THE INFORMATION PROVIDED TO LEARN ALL ABOUT WEDA, HER LOCATION AND ADOPTION OPTIONS.
WEDA is spayed, rabies, core vaccines, heart-worm & tick disease tested negative (4dx), de-wormed and micro-chipped. She has an estimated date of birth of 15th November 2014 and at the time of rescue November 2016, weighed approximately 67 pounds.
WEDA originally came from a high kill shelter in Texas where dogs generally have just 3 days to be saved before they are killed due to the thousands of stray dogs that sadly are in desperate need of life of the streets and ultimately a home of their own. WEDA spent a few weeks with a foster family in Texas before coming up to the rescue in Sebec and did great. She is however, not to be trusted with cats as she did show prey drive towards them.
WEDA gets on great with other dogs of all ages and sizes and loves to chase around, wrestle and play with the toys together. She is a very affectionate girl, who is very responsive. She walks well on the leash and rides great the car.
We have dog doors in the house and WEDA uses them to go out and play or to do her business, she has not had any accidents in the house, however, since he has 24 hour access to get outside it would be wise to possibly expect the odd accident until she learns her new routine and to let you know she needs to go outside.
WEDA 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. By working together both WEDA 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. WEDA is very smart and responsive and I believe training would be relatively easy and fun.
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!
WEDA 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.

WEDA 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.
