JACOB was transferred to GaDaH from a shelter in Texas.

We take a lot of pictures and videos and don't always have the time to post them on the dogs individual webpage and adoption site, so we ask that you go to the rescue  YouTube channel  and  photo albums on our Facebook page  to see a LOT of pictures and videos.

JACOB is neutered, rabies, core vaccines, heartworm/tick tested negative. He is on monthly prevention, microchipped, has an estimated date of birth of 9 April 2022 and weighs 23 pounds. We have no way of knowing what the actual breed is, so it is up to people to look at the pictures and video's to make up their own mind.

JACOB was adopted on 1st October 2022 at just 6 months old and was sadly returned to the rescue on 19 April 2023. Jacob was great with our volunteer who met the former adopter to bring him back, settling great on the dog beds in her car. At the rescue he was introduced to 4 other pups a few months younger than him and within 20 minutes they were all playing and chasing and having a great time.

JACOB is currently in the communal area in the kennels with the other pups and doing great. He is happy to share food, toys and cuddles up on the elevated dog beds with him.

Volunteers that have met him, both male and female have fallen in love and he has been eager to share all the love he has with them.

JACOB is available for adoption from Give a Dog a Home Rescue in Sebec, Maine for an adoption fee of $300. This adoption fee covers the cost of running a brick and mortar rescue as well as any transport, veterinary, food, treats, toys costs and the many expenses that rescues endure to keep the pets in their care safe, and happy.    Be sure to read all his information and if interested, go to the rescue website to submit an adoption application.

The rescue buys food in bulk, by the truck load and there are a variety of brands and flavors. 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.
