Coastal German Shepherd Rescue

Mariah has been adopted! 01-01-2007

Female about 0 old.

Mariah came to us through the same vet that helped Shadow. We know that Mariah jumped or fell from a 2nd story balcony, fracturing her hip socket. Her family either couldn't or wouldn't pay for the surgery to repair her so they told their vet to euthanize her. The doctor just couldn't do it and as a true Good Samaritan, vowed to get her healed before finding a rescue group for her. Mariah needed hip surgery, called an FHO which means that the ball of her hip socket was removed. This is a relatively common surgery for dogs with hip dysplasia issues. Dogs with this modification go on to live mostly normal lifes. Since we have had Mariah, her mobility and muscle tone have improved greatly!

Mariah is a BEAUTIFUL girl, about 5 years old. She is patient and kind - she isn't afraid of men, in fact, she adores her male caretaker! When resting, she crosses her paws in the most ladylike fashion! Any of the volunteers that meet her, absolutely fall head over heels for her. Mariah is a true lady, with manners and confidence - whichever family adopts her will truly have a golden treasure in their family!!!

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.
