Coastal German Shepherd Rescue

Tuscany has been adopted! 06-05-2010

Female about 0 old.

Imagine being very pregnant and finding yourself in a cold, crowded, noisy high kill shelter. Severely underweight and a belly full of pups, this is where Tuscany found herself almost 2 months ago. This sweet girl not only delivered delivered her 10 babies, but ensured they survived without regard for her own health. Within less than 24 hours, she became very sick and required immediate medical attention. Since her hold time wasn't up yet, the shelter did not want to take any measures to treat her. This would have not only meant she would have lost her life, but her pups as well. With the help of a few caring people, Tuscany's life was spared at the last minute, ensuring the survival of her babies as well.

Whisked from the shelter, a grateful, but very sick momma and her pups were hospitalized, receiving the medical care she required thanks to Coastal stepping up for her. Tuscany continued to feed and care for her 10 babies inspite of being sick and dehydrated. Once released from the hospital, Tuscany and her pups thrived in their foster home. With a little assistance, all 10 pups have grown up fat and healthy. The pups are weaned and almost ready for homes of their own, so now it's time for Tuscany to receive all the attention she so rightly deserves.

This pretty sable girl is approximately 2 years old and on the smaller side. She is housebroken, knows how to use a doggie door and a very polite house guest. She is quiet in the house and likes to be with you. When taking a break from her pups, she liked to either walk around in the yard, or curl up under her foster mom's desk or chair. She walks nicely on a leash and is good with other dogs. She is very sweet and just wants to please you. She is a very easy girl to live with and was obviously well cared for before ending up at the shelter.

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.
