Rescue Me ID: 17-12-14-00389MIKEY - $200 (male)

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Puppy

Personality: High Energy 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Mikey was saved from a high kill shelter in Texas, where dogs generally have just 3 days to be saved before they are killed for space. Mikey is neutered, core vaccines, rabies, de-wormed, heartworm tested negative and micro-chipped. He has an estimated date of birth of 31 August 2016 and weighs around 36.90 pounds. He has been listed as a Border Collie/American Staffordshire Terrier mix We have no way of knowing the exact breed, so it is up to individuals to decide what breed they think is most likely. It is important to note that if you believe he does look like he has pit bull terrier in him, then several places have breed restrictions and ... (Read More)some people can have a negative attitude towards the breed. Mikey is the sweetest boy, he is an active boy, but is so laid back. He is located in the kennel building and he will go outside in the run to do his business and to see what is going on outside, but when it isn't play time he settles down and relaxes enjoying chewing on his hoof. Mikey is enjoying the snow, being from Texas this is the first time he has experienced snow and he seems to find it fascinating. Mikey is a really happy boy, he will run and play and then come back to check in before running off to explore a bit more. He is so sweet and loving, he loves to lean on you and get his head scratched or his belly rubbed. He wags his tail and goes to the gate to greet people when they go over to the kennels, he truly is just pure-sweetness. Mikey has been great with the dogs although he does have alpha tendencies and can be a bit of a bully at times, so that is important for a potential family to be confident with and understand dogs body language and personalities. Since being here at the rescue he has not shown any signs of aggression. We do not have cats at the rescue so cannot comment how he is with cats, however, I would think most likely a home without cats would be best. 'We do not recommend dog parks for several weeks, if not months, it is so very important for families and dogs to form a strong bond and get to know each other before exposing them to the potential dangers of dog parks. Although all GaDaH dogs are very well socialized with other dogs, lots of other dogs have not had the benefit of this socialization and do not always know how to play and act with other dogs. You also do not know the control the other families have over their dogs and you should always have a good recall for your adopted dog before going to dog parks. Mikey is full of energy and so a family with an active lifestyle is a huge bonus. He rode great in the car and was happy looking out of the window. He would benefit from lots of road trips and adventures, hiking, trips to the lake, the beach and anywhere that he can burn off some of his energy and enjoy the sights, smells and sounds the world has to offer. He will need a family that understands the importance of training and we encourage all families to work on basic and advanced training as a family so that boundaries and expectations can be set and both Mikey and his humans can learn each others body language and personalities and form a stronger bond and understanding of each other. Mikey is available for a REDUCED ADOPTION FEE of $200 ' This fee is not negotiable and is used to cover the rescue costs of pulling, vetting, health certificate, transport from Texas to Maine, monthly preventatives, supplements, food and anything else that is needed. 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 APPLICATION tab, complete, then submit the APPLICATION. Our process takes around 2-4 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. http://www.giveadogahome-sanantonio.org Mikey is located at the rescue in Sebec, Maine . We post in various states along the east coast and Canada where we have had lots of successful adoptions to enable more exposure for these beautiful saved souls. Families will need to be prepared to travel to the rescue to meet and take home their new best friend. Sebec is located just outside the towns of Dover-Foxcroft and Milo (approx 8 miles) and approx 45 miles from Bangor. There are also lots of hotels, motels, pet friendly accommodations and wonderful camp-sites for the more adventurous families and what a great way to get to know your new best friend. If there are options to arrange transport, we will work with you to make it happen. (Less)
