About COWBOY - $150
It is important you research the dog’s lifestyle needs to make sure that they fit yours – just as you would ensure compatibility with a human, you are committing to share your life for 10+ years. Please take the time to read ALL information provided.
COWBOY was saved from a shelter in the south. COWBOY is neutered, rabies, age-appropriate vaccines, heartworm & tick disease tested negative, dewormed and on monthly preventatives. He weighs around 40 pounds and has an estimated date of birth of 30 September 2021 . 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.
COWBOY is located at Give a Dog a Home Rescue in Sebec and is available for adoption for an adoption fee of $150.
Cowboy is a great young boy, who is great with other dogs, he has shared communal kennels with young pups and bigger dogs and does on great with them all, snuggling up on the elevated beds together. He loves to run and play and chase with the other dogs and to get his ears rubbed by anyone that comes to see him. He can be a little cautious when he first see's someone but is soon happy to get some love and attention.

Dogs have access and use dog doors to go outside, they will not know to let you know they need to go outside, so families must expect accidents and be prepared to teach your new dog to let you know when they need to go outside.
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!
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.
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
Please do NOT submit an application if you are not looking to take home a new best friend within the next few weeks.
