Coastal German Shepherd Rescue

Sadie Belle has been adopted! 08-15-2008

Female about 0 old.

Meet Sadie Belle!!! This diminutive 9 mo old German Shepherd look alike is also known as a "potcake" here to learn about the plight of Carribean dogs Sadie Belle weighs under 30 lbs right now and at full maturity should be no more than 35 lbs.

Sadie Belle's foster mom was vacationing in the Caribbean and found out about the potcakes on the islands - as one of our foster homes, she has a definite soft spot for homeless animals - with the help of the local SPCA, Sadie Belle was successfully captured and went from living off of island trash to flying first class to Southern California!!!.

Sadie's story is a sad one - as may be expected, the locals do not regularly spay or neuter - she and her siblings lived more or less feral on the island - she is the only member of her litter to still be living - the others were trapped and euthanized. When she was running loose, construction workers used her as a punching bag and she was regularly pinged around with a 2x4.

Sadie's savior has had her fully evaluated by her veterinarian - she now has a clean bill of health - she is current on vaccines, spayed and ready for her forever home.

Sadie Belle has quickly adapted to a life of luxury. She is housetrained, wonderful with other dogs, absolutely loves lounging under the shade trees in her cozy backyard (she also doesn't mind a snooze on the couch!) She lives with a friendly lab, a shy kitty, attends BBQs with her benefactor and is becoming a well socialized young lady - Eliza Doolittle, she is!!!!

Sadie Belle's adoption fee is $400.

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.
