Coastal German Shepherd Rescue

Kona has been adopted! 08-22-2009

Female about 0 old.

Hey you! Yeah, you. The one that just said, “Aaaaawwwwhhhhh, what a cute, little puppy.” Betcha didn’t think that I could hear you, huh? With these big ears, I don’t miss much. The nice people at Coastal say that I am going to be stunning once I grow into my ears. I’m just a puppy, so I don’t know much. Although I think that stunning is a good thing, right?

My name is Kona. I am 5 months old, but so far my life has been anything but easy. Somehow I got separated from mom and ended up out on the street all by myself. When the guy in the uniform picked me up, I thought it was a blessing because I would finally get some food in my tummy. Boy was I wrong. I ended up in a scary place where some dogs go to sleep and never wake up! When the woman came and led me out of my cage after two, long weeks, I was sure that I was a goner. I squeezed my eyes shut really tight and braced myself for the worst, but thankfully I was wrong again. The woman was no ordinary person; she was from Coastal! Imagine my relief when she cradled me in her arms and promised me that everything was going to be all right.

So, here I am at Coastal’s boarding facility hanging out with a bunch of really friendly dogs. I thought that I had really hit pay dirt, but my new, canine pals tell me that the best is still yet to come. On Saturday I get to go out and party at Petsmart. If I am lucky, maybe you will be there? I sure hope that I’m not wrong this time, so don’t forget. I will be at 26761 Aliso Creek from 11:00 to 3:00. I can’t wait to meet you. I just know that you are the right family for me.

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.
