Coastal German Shepherd Rescue

Shasta has been adopted! 01-01-2006

Female about 0 old.

We swooped in at the last minute to save Shasta from a local shelter where she was marked for death simply because she had an ear infection! She’s a sweet, affectionate, and attractive girl with piercing yellow eyes that look right into your heart and beg you to love her.

Shasta has some drop-eared genes, and her long, soft ears give her a gentle appearance. In fact, she’s friendly and easy-going with all she meets, both human and canine. She gets along well with small dogs, too. She’s especially good with her foster mom’s 4-yr old granddaughter. But don’t let her laid-back demeanor and low-key looks fool you. Shasta is a great watchdog, and ready to protect and defend her people and territory whenever needed. Her ears and eye color make us suspect that her non-Shepherd side may have been a hunting dog of some variety, and her temperament is a nice mix of always-alert guardian and determined tracker.

Shasta is crate-trained and doesn’t mind napping in her private space while you’re out. She’s a medium-large girl who needs a bit of help to watch her weight. As constant as her mountain namesake, Shasta would like a medium-active family to which she can devote herself forever and be a best friend for life!

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.
