Coastal German Shepherd Rescue

Roca has been adopted! 07-14-2007

Female about 0 old.

Roca is a 12 month old, petite girl. She is a mere 56 pounds that needs another 10 pounds to gain. She came all the way from Santa Barbara where she was in a kennel for a good 3 months. One of the volunteers at the shelter took her home to foster, and Roca got to spend time with 3 kitties and a BIG german shepherd sister whom she absolutely adored and followed everywhere . . . they both chased balls around and chased each other around. While living with her foster family, most of the time all she wanted to do is hang out with Mom and her new sister.

Roca is a very well mannered girl, walks well on a leash, is very eager to please and is just an absolute love. We think her second love is chasing the ball around . . . .

Roca will be on the petite side. Because of lack of nutrition while growing up, her immune system hasn’t been as healthy as you would like, and so she now has demadex but is on the mends. This is not contagious to other dogs, and is a very common immune system reaction when any dog is under a lot of stress and is not of the best health. With a little bit of nutrition, a warm bed and a ton of love she will be at 110% in not time.

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.
