CHOMPER and his siblings were saved from a shelter in the south. CHOMPER is the last of his siblings to be find their forever family. He is neutered, age-appropriate vaccines, dewormed and on monthly preventatives. He weighs around 50 pounds and has an estimated date of birth of 9 February 2022 . We have no way of knowing for sure what breed he is and so it is up to potential adopters to look at his pictures, video's many more can be found on the rescue website, and decide for themselves. CHOMPER is a typical happy, fun, active, curious, loving and affectionate pup. He has grown up around a lot of dogs of all ages, breeds and sizes and so has a great start to learning how to behave as a dog. He loves everyone he meets and just wants to play and give cuddles. He does need leash and obedience training so he learns what is expected of him, but he is a quick learner and would be eager to make his family happy. CHOMPER was lucky to go to a foster family at the beginning of November and after a week being there, this is what they reported back: Chomper's personality is starting to come out, along with the puppy energy he is finally getting more comfy and dumped himself off my bed playing as well massive bunny hops and play bows in the leaves. He adores his lavender lamby we got him and his decided bella's (family lab mix) bed had too much stuffing and removed some for her lol. We are up to mile walks 2 to 3x a day to burn off a little of the energy and probably should increase it soon, once he is more confident with all the smells. Right now he is comfortable going from my house to the corner which is about a 1/4 a mile so we do laps and I try to expand it a little each time. He is gonna need a fenced yard as he is not a fan of the run right now unless you are standing right there with him the whole time. He is also not a fan of being gated to an area and sounds like he is dying when I had to gate him to go to work. Broke my heart. He is the biggest sweetheart ever! And is a big velcro dog with me. It's pretty adorable. I'm so happy he is settling in and his personality is coming back out. He likes Issy (16 year old) and is so so with Celia (2 year old). She is nervous of big dogs and I know he can tell so it makes him nervous lol He has been getting more confident with her, but will just stay away from her when he doesn't want to deal with the 'terrible two's', can't blame him there lol.

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. 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! %BD'%BD%BDYou 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. 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 we can schedule your appointment to come to the rescue in Sebec, Maine for meet/greet/adopt
