Coastal German Shepherd Rescue

Gina has been adopted! 01-07-2007

Female about 0 old.

Poor Gina has been hoping to go home for a long time. A good Samaritan took an interest in Gina in time to save her from euthanasia, and amazed that she lasted as long as she did at the shelter. She must have a guardian angel. At any rate, she’s got a few guardian angels now, working to find her a loving spot to spend the rest of her life.

Gina is not a puppy, but she is an agile, active adult lady. Her foster mom's guess would be between 5 and 7 years old. Gina's foster mom is kind of attached to her, which accounts for Gina's longevity with Coastal ... and means she's going to make a wonderful pet for a loving family.

Gina has a healthy appetite; in fact, she should be wearing a sign that says "Will sit for food!!!" Her obedience skills have become somewhat more polished (however she may just be choosing to ignore us) but if food is dangled, she will plant her rear in an instant. She also likes to pretend that she is bouncing on a trampoline because she will leap up and down when she wants something - we're thinking she comes 4' up in the air with no effort! She also likes to alert the neighborhood when a helicopter flies over - she barks and twirls in her sincere imitation until it is gone!

Gina's boyfriend is a submissive young male shepherd mix - she will pester him from a dead sleep to go roll from one end of the yard to another - they can play for hours. She doesn't have the same opinion of female dogs but she will tolerate laid back girls, just not the bossy ones. Now if Gina sees a leash, she will grab it like a Lab and prance off with it. She also gets a bit of a kick out of chasing balls - she just won't bring them back! She is truly a delightful girl. Gina loves a good daily walk even with a little hitch in her giddyup, but it doesn't bother her in the least! Gina truly deserves to live out her days as a cherished pet.

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.
