Coastal German Shepherd Rescue

Scout has been adopted! 08-11-2007

Female about 0 old.

Scout’s owner was in a terrible accident and spent five weeks in the ICU. His family helped by caring for Scout. But now facing four to six months(!) in a rehab facility, Scout’s owner and his family decided that the very best thing for Scout would be to ask Coastal GSR to find him a great forever home.

Only a year old, Scout is a LARGE, loving, and stunning black-and-tan boy. He’s friendly with everyone once he gets to know them - it takes him a little while to warm up to strangers. He gets along swimmingly in his foster mom’s nine-member pack and even sleeps on her bed (with permission from the senior pack members, of course). He’s completely potty-trained and 100% reliable in the house. He’s smart and catches on quickly.

Scout is tall with a huge head, suggesting that he’ll be VERY big when fully grown, probably weighing in at around 100 lbs. He’s surprisingly calm for such a young dog, and loves to snooze or just sit quietly wherever his foster mom goes around the house. He likes children, bonds quickly, and will make a wonderful companion for just about any family or single person.

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.
