Coastal German Shepherd Rescue

Blaze has been adopted! 12-02-2007

Female about 0 old.

How many different ways to spell I LOVE YOU? Well, Blaze is on top of it, and will make you know that she loves life, loves the world around her, and loves you!

Blaze is an interesting mix. Her back is the best testimony of her claim to be a GS: she has that gorgeous weaving shepherd hair. The rest of her is well, like I said, an interesting mix. She is a sweet pup, always ready to get a dog toy and play. She is potty trained: she likes to go in ONE spot in the backyard, always the same one. She sleeps in a crate with her brother Smokey, and is not too reluctant to go in as long as the other big dogs of the pack are not too far behind her. Blaze has a tendency to get into trouble: a fence that has a hole, and a 10 foot dip on the other side? Hey no problem, she will go and try to jump! A wrought iron fence? Hum, you can read it on her face: ‘I bet I can fit through one of these openings’….and then screaming because she got half stuck. Hey, there is a shed on this property, and a hole underneath? ‘Hey, I bet there are some interesting creatures living down there….let me go and investigate’. You get the idea: it is impossible to get your eyes off of her, she is worth a whole day of TV entertainment, all by herself.

Of course, Blaze’s behavior triggers some interesting reactions from the adult dogs she lives with. Blaze has the female wrapped around her paw. The male on the other hand is totally impermeable to her attempts to say ‘whoops, I am reaaaallllyyy sorrrryyyyy!’ She often gets corrected by him, and she takes it very well: rolls to the ground, says Sorry multiple times, and the minute she thinks she can get away with it, she runs…and looks for more trouble to get into.

Blaze enjoys dog toys. Not the normal ones you can buy, no, just the ones that taste and look like pine cones. Which gets her into trouble since those ‘dog toys’ are the exclusive territory of the big 120 pound male GS she lives with. She keeps trying to locate new ones that may not be his, but he keeps claiming them. She is getting sneaky about it, but still not as good as she would like to be: she usually ends up getting a correction for getting close to any kind of pine cone. Not a problem she says, I will go and annoy one of the other dogs I live with if I can’t play with a pine cone!

Blaze has been going through the nights just fine, no accidents whatsoever.

Blaze is a little bundle of love, she loves attention and petting. She looks at you with very sweet innocent eyes, and just allows you to fall in love.

Blaze will probably be a mid size dog, somewhere around 50-60 pounds. Currently, we think she is about 4 months old.

The minimum adoption donation for adults is $300 and the adoption donation for puppies is $400 - $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. 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.
