Sharky is available ( Updated 09-24-2017 )

Male German Shepherd Dog /Cattle Dog mix about 1-2 years old. Gets along with other dogs. Not for homes with kids.

Sharky's owner committed suicide, jumping off the cliffs and into the ocean, with his loyal dog by his side. Sharky would not leave the cliffiside, waiting for his owner to come back, and animal control could not capture him. After four days on his own, Eldad and his team at Hope For Paws were able to capture him and get him to safety.

Now obedience trained, Sharky needs a calm, patient home that will give him structure, allowing him to feel safe. Could you be the one to give Sharky his happily ever after?

The minimum adoption donation for adults is $300 and the adoption donation for puppies is $400 - $500. This amount only partially covers the cost of veterinary care, boarding fees, and other miscellaneous expenses involved in the temporary care and adoption of our dogs and is tax deductible. The adoption donation provides that all dogs will be spayed or neutered, receive current vaccinations, and are microchipped. If not, arrangements will be made on an individual basis ( i.e., puppies who will need to be altered by 6 mos old). Special consideration may be given to those willing to adopt older dogs or dogs with physical problems.
