Coastal German Shepherd Rescue

Bandit has been adopted! 09-21-2008

Female about 0 old.

Bandit, his "partner" Sky and their daughter, Precious were in one run at a high kill shelter. When our volunteer went to meet them, Sky had just given birth to six puppies. All 3 dogs were in one run w/6 newborns!!!! Obviously, our only choice was to help all NINE of them!!!! Sky will be ready for adoption sometime in October and Precious, a 7 mo old beauty queen, is available now.

Bandit has probably fathered more than two litters. The man who refused to reclaim them told the shelter that he "makes a lot of money" from those dogs. We are thankful that he didn't seem to have the money to bail them out because now they all have a shot at a wonderful second life.

Bandit gets along well with female dogs of similar size. He doesn't appear to be particularly fond of small dogs which probably means that he won't do well with a cat. Bandit is eager to learn and at his first adoption event, he mellowed out as the day wore on. He loves people and appears to like kids too!

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.
