A PET IS FOR LIFE -
THINK ABOUT THE INVESTMENT!
AUBREY was saved from a high kill shelter in Texas where dogs often have only 3 days to be saved. AUBREY is spayed 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 January 2021, she weighed around 42.00 pounds and has an estimated date of birth 20 November 2016
. 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.
AUBREY arrived at the rescue in Sebec, Maine on 15th January 2021 and was very shy. This sweet girl has clearly not had a fun past, when she was scared or unsure she would sit and face away from what she was scared off, or just sit facing the wall. She is super affectionate and when she was settled and comfortable loved getting her head scratched and belly rubbed. She was in a kennel next to her best friend Carl and after a few days of making sure everyone was settled I opened the gate in the runs so that they could play together and they snuggled together too. I was hoping to adopt them together, but sadly Carl has been adopted.
After a week and most dogs getting adopted, I moved the remaining dogs in the kennel communal area where they have access to a large secure fenced in area and Aubrey and her new friends are having a great time - she still craves so desperately for attention and is the sweetest natured girl.
She deserves nothing but the best from the humans who open up their heart to her, she needs an active life, lots of adventures, exploring new places, with different sights, smells and sounds, she needs to be showered in affection and love and made to understand she will never have a horrible life where she feels she has to sit facing a wall again.
We do not know how Aubrey is around cats or livestock, however, we expect families to be prepared to adjust and work with any potential problems and ensure they can provide a safe, happy environment for everyone in the family.
More pictures and possible video's can be found on his 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.
AUBREY 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.
