Coastal German Shepherd Rescue

Major has been adopted! 10-09-2010

Female about 0 old.

This wonderful boy was rescued on his very last day at a county shelter. He was literally pulled out of the euthanasia room as one of our volunteers begged for us to be able to rescue him. He is loyal, regal and loving and so very deserving.

Major came to us with a little runny nose, nothing out of ordinary for a shelter dog. We quickly realized that Major was not feeling well and got him into one of our vets who confirmed pneumonia. Major is now hospitalized on iv fluids and antibiotics. He has a good prognosis and his outlook is sunny!

Unfortunately, we have been hit hard with medical expenses this fall. We have had litters of sick pups and several very expensive hospital stays. We want to give Major the very best medical care and help him pull through this; however, we need your help! We can't do it alone! If you can donate event the smallest amount, it will add up! Let's give Major something to be thankful for!

Update 11/30/09

We have GREAT news on Major! Major turned a corner on Thanksgiving and started to really rally! He was released on Friday to a foster home and is doing FANTASTIC!!! We are still being reserved and hoping that he continues to improve daily. His foster mom reports that he is a super happy boy and loves feeling good!

Update 1/19/10

Major has settled in to his foster home. He is enjoying walks, good food, and a warm bed to sleep in. Majorís foster family reports that he is a perfect gentleman and housebroken to boot! Heís got a healthy appetite and a zest for life. All Major needs now is a home to call his very own.

The minimum adoption donation for adults is $375 and the adoption donation for puppies is $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 when permitted by law. 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.
