Rescue Me ID: 16-03-15-00231Max and Meg (male)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Female Dogs Only, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Max and Meg are brother and sister born in the same litter of puppies in 2009 and adopted by me when they were 6 months old from a dog-rescue shelter in Sicily, Italy. They are now 8 years old, both steralised, micro-chipped and vacinated (even against rabies). They have travelled with us from place to place in Italy over the time we have been working here. Now sadly we have been called home to the UK for family reasons and cannot bring Max and Meg with us. Whoever has the heart to adopt these two must know that they come together. They are inseparable. They are a package. Max has dominant tendancies and can show aggression to other male ... (Read More)dogs but he is an excellent guard dog, very loving and loyal while Meg is very submissive but cute. They are both used to a healthy routine. They get a long walk in the surrounding countryside every morning for 1 hour or more and fed twice a day, in the morning and in the evening. they live and sleep outside in their own dog houses, which would go with them to whoever is lucky enough to have them. I am hoping and praying that the right, good and loving person will fall in love with them and give them the home that they deserve. We will bring the dogs to Germany by car to whoever would like to give them a new chance. Thank you. S. (Less)

Shetland Sheepdog Mix    Age: Adult

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    CHARLIE, 3 LEGS AND SOON IN A SHELTER, HELP HIM !!!!! This is Charlie. He only has three legs and will be going to the pound in a few days.. He urgently needs help so please share ! Charlie was found on a cold rainy day in January. He was only four months old and was soaking wet and terrified. To make things worse he had been attacked by other dogs and his back leg was so badly injured it had to be amputated. Luckily the lady took him in and cared for him. He is now gravely ill and has had to give all her dogs away. Nobody seems to want Charlie though! Yes, he is shy and won't walk on a lead and only has three legs, but he is ... (Read More)also good with other dogs and although wary at first does like to be stroked. After all he has been through, the pound will be terrible for him. He is six and a half years old and weighs 35 kg. He is a maremmano/shepherd cross. He will be chipped and vaccinated and can be adopted outside Italy. Poor Charlie shouldn't have to end his days alone in a pound. If you are interested in helping this unlucky dog please contact us Thank you! (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Dog in Italy
    Dogs can make good pets in Italy if they match your IifestyIe. Dogs have a reputation for being "man's best friend" for excellent reasons. Dogs are wonderful companions. Many breeds, in addition to being affectionate, devoted members of the family, are useful working dogs and guardians. Most dogs form tight bonds with their humans, and need to be cared for like the valuable family members they are. But sadly, some owners do not live up to the responsibility and involvement it takes to properly care for a dog throughout its life. Dogs can become the victims of neglect or active abuse. Some dogs receive tender, attentive care from their owners, but no longer have a home after their owner passes away or experiences a major life event that makes him unable to keep his dog. There are many more dogs than there are homes for dogs, and dogs that are not spayed or neutered can accidentally produce large numbers of puppies, exacerbating overpopulation. For this reason, three to four million dogs, many of them perfectly healthy and wonderful animals, are euthanized in the U.S. each year.

    Many people get excited about owning a new dog, decide to get a puppy, and then pick one out at a pet shop or visit a breeder with a new litter. However, there are so many wonderful, friendly dogs in need of adoption, including puppies and purebreds. Some of these dogs might even be a better fit for a family than a new puppy; for instance, some adult dogs in need of adoption are already housebroken and obedience trained. Adoption is typically much less expensive than purchasing a dog. People who adopt dogs find the experience extremely rewarding, bond very closely with their dogs, and have the added satisfaction of knowing that one less animal has to be euthanized. If your family is ready for a canine companion, please consider adopting a dog!

lnteresting Dog Trivia Italy Fact Sheet
    All dogs, even cute little lap dogs, are ultimately descended from domesticated wolves. There are hundreds of dog breeds with extremely varied characteristics and sizes, from the tiniest teacup Chihuahua to the hugest Mastiff, but all of these breeds make up just one species Canis lupus familiaris and can theoretically breed with one another (although there can be practical and health related constraints.) Dogs can hear much lower frequencies than humans, over twice as high as humans, and about four times as far as humans.
