Pit Bull

Be sure to read ALL information provided. A PET IS FOR LIFE - THINK ABOUT THE INVESTMENT! SPIKE has rabies, core vaccines, heartworm/tick disease tested - negative for all. He is de-wormed, monthly preventatives and microchipped. At the time of rescue in the middle of June 2021, he weighed around 55 pounds and is around 2-3 years old. We cannot say for sure what breed he is, so we expect families to do their own research on his look and size and decide what breed you think he is and if you have the lifestyle suitable for his needs. SPIKE is scheduled for neuter surgery on 8th July 2021 and will be available for adoption after this time. You are welcome to submit the adoption application and plan to adopt on or after 8th July. SPIKE has only been at the rescue for a short time and in the kennels he was very nervous and shy he was not comfortable walking on a leash going to somewhere that he wasn't familiar with. After a few days in the kennels, he has settled down and his typical pit-bull goofy personality is coming out. He loves to chew on the hooves and play with this toys, he is very sweet and affectionate. We are looking for an active family who is familiar with the pit-bull breed and who is dedicated to giving this wonderful boy his forever home. BULLET is deserving of a perfect family that will love him and give him all the he needs, lots of adventures, road trips, socialization to different people, places, animals and eventually play dates with other dogs, but most importantly a family committed to training him , keeping him happy, healthy and active. 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. ALL dogs are 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, 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. 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. https://www.giveadogahome-sanantonio.org/forms/form?formid=5838 ALL Dogs are LOCATED AT THE RESCUE IN SEBEC, MAINE.
