Coastal German Shepherd Rescue

Beka has been adopted! 12-08-2007

Female about 0 old.

Beka is a very friendly and submissive girl. She was found as a stray and picked up by animal control, and of course, at that point she thought she was going for a car ride to Disneyland. She ended up at the shelter was so bewildered at what happened to her. Here she was in a kennel with all the dogs barking, and every time someone walked passed her she thought she was being taken home;she jumps up in her kennel and whimpers like a little baby girl that she is.

Once taken out, we realized she likes to play with the ball but hasn’t yet figured out how to catch it. She loves people and other dogs, she does have a bit of submissive urination, but with time we are certain she will get over that. She met a pug that she would have loved to play with, then a Rottweiler, then another 70 pound dog, and at this point we realized everything to her is play.

We took her to the San Diego Walk for Animals, and she did an excellent job with the rest of the crew and the many many other dogs with different shapes and sizes. We took her into the bay and she loves the water, once again wanting to play with the waves.

Beka would do well in a home with another playmate.

Udate from Beka's foster home:

Beka likes to sit on our lap while we watch TV. She loves to play ball. Steve throws the ball over the roof to the other side of the house and she runs around the house to get it. We also play ball with her in the house (we shouldn't I know, but she loves it!). She is pretty picky when it comes to eating, definitely not food motivated. But she does like ice cream a lot!!

Beka is also perfect with the grandkids who are 2 and 9 years old. They play together all the time. Beka is very gentle and loving, especially with the kids. When she's had enough tail pulling and being climbed on she just goes and lays down.

We put her bed in our bedroom and let her up on our bed. She stays on our bed for a few minutes soaking up the attention and then she goes in the living room to sleep by herself. She's been that way since we got her. She is NOT a watch dog. She licks everyone who comes to the door :).

I really think Beka would do best in a home with people who don't work full days. She tends to get depressed if left alone for too long. Like I said, she is very loving, gentle and affectionate and will make a great companion for someone. A house with a cat would be wonderful for her after seeing how well she got along with the kitten.


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.
