Coastal German Shepherd Rescue

Gypsy has been adopted! 01-01-2007

Female about 0 old.

Gypsy was found as a stray. Her coat was completely matted and she was very much dehydrated not to mention under fed. None of that really mattered to our Gypsy girl, she came out of the shelter happy and ready to face the world again.

August 11th was her first day out at an adoption event. She met about 12 other dogs in the rescue and was very well behaved. Gypsy is supposed to be a long haired German Shepherd . . . after grooming her, she blew out most of her coat, and because she hasn’t been given the right nutrition her fur is not as healthy as it should be, it is very dry and it started to “break” everywhere. We can’t wait too this girl bloom in a few weeks with the proper TLC. She will truly be a knock out.

Gypsy was a very well behaved girl at the event, she sat nicely next to anyone that would give her the attention. The one thing we did notice is that she is not fond of the crate, she hates being in a crate. She loves being outside where the rest of the action is.

Here’s a quick blurb from one of our volunteers that spent the day with her at the event:

“She is super nice and seems to love people and kids and gets along with other dogs. She did bark at some smaller dogs walking by, as did all the other dogs but it was just excitement. I groomed her all over and she seems to have no problem with that. I took her into Petsmart and walked around a bit and she was fine,-though seemed to have never been in a place like that before. I think she is a real sweetie with really good temperament”

Please come back in a few days to check out updates on Gypsy.

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.
