Coastal German Shepherd Rescue

Nellie has been adopted! 09-11-2010

Female about 0 old.

Crate trained, almost housebroken and well socialized with many situations! What more could you ask for? We are nearly certain that these are purebred pups and they are all going to be large.

Each puppy has been working on leash training and they are advancing every day. They understand sit, are learning to "heel" and are being introduced to "stay" & "down"! They will come to a whistle and also know to "wait" at the door for an invitation.

All five puppies know "sit", crate beautifully and are just about potty trained. We have started leash training and they are doing well. They are starting to catch onto "heel" and the "automatic sit". We are working on "stay" and will be teaching them "down". They have learned not to eat your hand when you give them a treat and come running to you when you whistle. The "come" command is excellent when accompanied with the whistle.

The puppies are big sweethearts and love to be around all sizes of people as well as all sizes of dogs. I have worked on their social skills with other dogs gradually as they are getting older and they are doing excellent. I invite neighbors and friends over regularly so that puppies continue to have social interaction and are introduced to all different human smells. They have no problem saying hello to every and anyone who comes to visit.

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.
