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 . TULIA is 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, she weighed around 41 pounds and has an estimated date of birth 17 May 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. When Tulia first arrived at the rescue in June she was extremely shy and nervous. She settled in well and over time became more relaxed and confident. As dogs get adopted, it provides more space so that we can move dogs around and put dogs together in communal kennels, which we did with Tulia and this is when her true personality started to shine. Tulia is great with other dogs of all ages and sizes, she will let puppies climb all over her, but when she has had enough will let them know. She likes to wrestle and chase with the older and bigger dogs and at the end of the day snuggle up with them on one of the elevated dog beds. Tulia is very sweet and affectionate, although with new people and new places, might be a little nervous or cautious so we are looking for a patient understanding family to reassure her, if this becomes the case. She has had no training, however, is very responsive and eager to please. She rides good in the car, although could do with some practice leash training. 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. 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* rating in accordance with There have not been any 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 nutritionalist on grain vs grain free food! 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 families must confirm with the border that they are able to cross and have the required vaccines, documentation and anything else needed to enter the US. Also it is important to know that Canadian Customs charge 15% taxes on the adoption when you return into Canada.

Our process takes around 1-2 days, and ensuring your references are aware that we will be calling, could speed up the process.
