Coastal German Shepherd Rescue

Jack has been adopted! 03-25-2007

Female about 0 old.

Jack was relinquished to a high kill shelter when his owners were fined for having too many dogs. He came into the shelter a wiggly happy puppy and as the days wore on, he became extremely depressed and terrified. By the time Coastal was able to bring him in, even touching him resulted in flinching skin and submissive urination. We hustled to get this guy into a foster home in order to get his confidence back and let him learn to be a pup again.

Within an hour of being part of a pack, Jack regained his joy of living, his high play quotient and general teenage boy hijinks. Jack LOVES other dogs and would do well with a dog near his own age with the same energy level. He has the personality of a pup and clearly has had little supervision, direction or discipline in his young life. But he definitely wants to please and, while a little hand shy, he is coming around quickly.

We are working on his crate training as well as his general obedience skills. He'll make a great companion for a family with older kids.

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.
