Darby has been adopted! 02-07-2009

Female about 0 old.

Darby's life was almost snuffed out but a dedicated volunteer networked him to get him out in time. He is a super sweet guy with a sunny disposition. He gets along great with other dogs and we bet he'd like a kitty too! Darby, like most adolescents, can certainly benefit from an obedience class but he is so eager to please, he should pick up great manners quickly!

Update 1/18/09:

Darby moved into a foster home recently and his foster family gives him a BIG thumbs up! He had to walk into a pack of dogs after a long day of performing all his good deeds at an adoption event. He was universally accepted by all who live there and is a favorite of the youngsters. He is extremely tolerant and playful - after all, he IS a puppy himself. Darby doesn't bark, he has yet to make a mistake - he doesn't have food aggression (he readily shares his food and will allow you to take things out of his mouth), he sleeps quietly through the night in a crate.

Darby is one of the good ones - no baggage even after all the time he has spent in a shelter and in boarding once he came to Coastal. Darby is a guy who actually GAINED weight in boarding (most shepherds don't). We are so thankful to finally have him in a foster home so he can truly have that "warm soft bed" every night and a pack of buddies to play with.

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.
