Expanse : Melba
Update: Melba is the last of our Expanse puppies from the hoarding case to find her new home. She is super sweet but still a bit timid at first. She is no longer wild and also is able to eat nicely with the other dogs now that she knows that food is something that she doesn't have to fight for to live. She loves other dogs and is completely crate trained. She will be 5 months old on July 25th, 2021.---The Expanse litters are two separate litters that we pulled from McCreary County Animal Shelter in Kentucky that came from the same hoarding case. Juliette, Bobbie, Christjen & Melba are from the younger group and are approximately  10-12 weeks old. Their momma (Lacie May) is a smaller shepherd that weighs about 50 pounds. Both of these litters are a bit wild with energy from being in the shelter too long and not socialized appropriately when young. We don't recommend them going to families with young children unless you have another dog for them to play with. They are very bouncy and could scratch and scare a young child. They were also very emaciated before coming into rescue, and will need to have continued access to ample meals to help their resource guarding diminish and go away.If you are interested in meeting and/or adopting this baby, please fill out an application. They currently are fixed, up to date on shots, wormings, preventatives and are microchipped. Adoption fee is $188 ($175 Adoption Fee + $13 Lifetime Registration Fee for Microchip), applications can be filled out at this link. https://www.petstablished.com/adoption_form/10167/generic .We cannot guarantee breed or size when full grown.
