All of our available animals are located at the rescue in Sebec, Maine. Once approved families are invited to schedule an appointment to come to the rescue to meet and hopefully take home their new forever best friend.
DARCY and her sister Carly are spayed, rabies, heartworm and tick disease tested negative, core vaccines, de-wormed, monthly preventatives and microchipped. At the time of rescue in the middle of June 2021, they weighed around 25-30 pounds, but have since gained weight and are more likely around the 50-55 pound weight range. They have an estimated date of birth 18 November 2020
. We cannot say for sure what breed they are 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 their needs.
DARCY & her sister CARLY are both very bonded and have a lot of fun together and so we are looking to adopt them TOGETHER. The adoption fee for BOTH girls is $1,100 CAD This includes the Border Import Tax that has been paid.
Darcy and Carly have been at the rescue since the middle of June and have been nothing but bundles of energy, fun, love and affection. They are high energy girls who love to chase around, play, wrestle and just anything to burn off their energy. They are both great with other dogs of all ages and sizes and after only being here a week, were moved into a communal area with lots of other dogs. They love toys and can entertain themselves with them, or will encourage their sister of friends to join in and try and take the toy from them - if they can catch them. They are a lot of fun to watch with their funny antics.
They have not had any training and so are very jumpy and excitable, which is very common for rescue dogs as they are competing for attention, but they are very responsive and eager to please and so with correct and consistent training it should be a lot of fun and easy to get these girls on track. They ride great in the car, although do need work on leash training, something that there is no time for me to do.
We are definitely looking for a family that has the lifestyle to suit their needs in both activity and mental stimulation and of course providing a loving, safe, fun home with structure and routine so they can thrive and enjoy their new family life. Lots m
ore 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.
The rescue buys food in bulk, by the truck load and there are a variety of brands and flavours. None of the food given is less than a 4* food rating in accordance with
. There have not been issues with eating any of the varying foods. It is important that you do your research on the ingredients and speak to your vet or a nutritionist on grain vs grain free!
This fee is not negotiable and is used to cover the rescue costs of pulling, vetting, health certificate, transport from Texas, or other locations, countries to Maine, monthly preventatives, supplements, food, general day to day cost of running a brick and mortar rescue and anything else that is needed.
