Adorable and Adoptable Pet of the Week: Maine

Read Time 1 Minutes

This week for Adorable and Adoptable, we have a pup that is our ‘main’ man.

Meet Maine

Maine is a 4-year-old male Tibetan Mastiff Mix. Those beautiful colors in his fluffy fur and his expressive eyes are pretty much signs that he’s gonna be cuddled often.

He is heartworm positive, but don’t let that scare you! Heartworm positive dogs live long and healthy lives after treatment and successfully clearing up the heartworms.

Maine is part of the GBHS’s foster-to-adopt program and will be treated until his heartworms clear up. All treatment costs are covered by GBHS. He does get to go home with his adoptive family while receiving treatment. The adoption will become official once his treatment is completed!

It was 5 p.m. one Friday evening when a woman came to the shelter with seven puppies in a laundry basket. Our team estimated them to be about three weeks old, meaning they would need to be bottle fed for a few weeks. Our community care coordinator picked up the phone and called Mary, one of our amazing puppy fosters. She was at the shelter 15 minutes later to pick up the basket of puppies who were each named after beloved characters from Harry Potter. Fast forward five weeks later, and all the puppies were ready for surgery and adoption. Each of the puppies found a forever home immediately! We’re so grateful for our fosters who share kindness by opening up their hearts and homes to these animals in need. Want to join them?

All adoptable pets from the GBHS are neutered/spayed, microchipped and up-to-date on all vaccines. They also have more than just cats, dogs and puppies. They sometimes have birds, ferrets, reptiles, pigs, bunnies and other pets up for adoption.


All active and retired military members and their immediate family members receive waived adoption fees with a valid ID presented at the time of adoption.

You can find all of the adoptable pets at GBHS right here. It’s updated regularly as pets become adoptable.
