Coastal German Shepherd Rescue

Ranger has been adopted! 03-24-2007

Female about 0 old.

Ranger is a huge baby. He is 9 mos old with the high energy of a teenage boy. Ranger's family purchased him from a breeder back East and flew him to Southern California as a baby. Unfortunately, health problems have precluded them from being able to properly channel his energy and enthusiasm. Luckily, he has a very sweet disposition and gets along wonderfully with other dogs. Not so great with cats, we learned.

We are asking for a minimum donation of $500 for his adoption - dogs like Ranger allow us to help other less fortunate dogs. We will only place Ranger in a home with German Shepherd experience in training and obedience; his new family must be immediately prepared to start working with Ranger in a structured training environment. He is not appropriate for a family with small children - his exuberance and size will knock them over.

Ranger walks beautifully on a leash and loves to "work" with his backpack on and his nose to the ground.

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. 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.
