A PET IS FOR LIFE - NOT JUST FOR CHRISTMAS!
THINK ABOUT THE INVESTMENT!
CARYS was saved from a high kill shelter in Texas where dogs often have only 3 days to be saved. CARYS is spayed, has rabies, core vaccines, heartworm/tick disease tested negative for all. She is de-wormed, monthly preventatives and microchipped. At the time of rescue in the middle of December 2020, she weighed around 37.00 pounds and has an estimated date of birth 18 July 2019
We cannot say for sure what breed she is, so we expect families to do their own research on her look and size and decide what breed you think she is and if you have the lifestyle suitable for her needs.
CARYS has only just arrived at the rescue, so there is not much information we can provide.
She is in a kennel with access through a dog door to an outside run, where she can interact with other dogs through the gate panels. She uses the dog door and has not made a mess in her kennel. She is cautious when she first meets people and when someone enters her kennel, will go outside, but soon comes back. When she feels a little confident she does tolerate being stroked, but so soon after getting here she is still unsure of everything. With time her confidence will build and she develop the wonderful personality she has.
Being an active dog, she is going to need a family with an active lifestyle who can give this gorgeous girl the life and love that she deserves. Her breed is an intelligent one, so a family must understand the importance of mental stimulation and have the experience, patience and understanding to work with this beautiful "diamond in the ruff" and polish her up to be an amazingly, intelligent girl she is.
More pictures and possible video's can be found on her page on the rescue website.
All dogs use dog doors to go out and do their business or to enjoy the cool, fresh weather in their dog runs or communal areas. We cannot say if a dog is house-trained, however, we expect families to understand that all dogs need a transition period and accidents could happen and training is most definitely needed.
You MUST understand that dogs need time to decompress and adapt to their new environment and home. It is a HUGE transition they make from the kill shelter, being vetted, on transport for 3 days and arriving in Maine where the temperature and such is very different to what they have only known. In rescue there is what is known as the "3 Point Rule" Days 1-3 your dog is stressed, anxious, confused as to where they are now. Weeks 1-3 your dog is adjusting, settling in, learning things. At the 3 month point, your dog understands they are home, and have built up a trusting relationship where they feel loved and secure.
All dogs are fed Rachael Ray Nutrish PEAK Natural Dry Dog Food, Grain Free Western Grasslands Recipe with Bison. Rachael Ray Nutrish Peak Dog Food receives the Dog Food Advisor’s second-highest tier rating of 4.5 stars.
CARYS is available for adoption for an adoption fee of $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.
Due to borders being closed, it is up to families to call the US and Canadian borders to find the current details on border crossing. Animal Welfare is deemed essential in the US, but quarantine rules entering back into Canada must be followed.
If you feel that you have the heart and home to give this precious soul a wonderful life, please go to our website, under the ADOPTION INFO tab, complete, then submit the APPLICATION. Our process takes around 1-2 days, and ensuring your references are aware that we will be calling, could speed up the process. Once you have been approved, we discuss any questions in regards to the dog you are wanting to adopt, then you complete and submit the contract, make payment and then we can work out the pick up / transport arrangements.
Please do NOT submit an application if you are not looking to take home a new best friend within the next few weeks.
