Coastal German Shepherd Rescue

Liberty has been adopted! 11-11-2006

Female about 0 old.

We're trying to save poor Liberty from a Los Angeles shelter. He's scheduled to be euthanized and needs your donations today to help with his boarding and medical care. Its very hard to bring in dogs just before a holiday when no boarding facilities have room and everyone's on vacation. Please make a donation today to help us give Liberty a chance at health and happiness!

Update 7/3/06:

With two very special needs dogs on our roster, we just felt helpless when we saw the photos of this sweet dog in the shelter. The kennel supervisor told us that he was slated for euthanasia immediately, that he was near death, but we just couldn't turn away. One of our volunteers drove straight away to get him and brought him back to Orange County for some TLC. Liberty has been profiled as geriatric but he is NOT! He has a spirit and demeanor that is quite endearing. He gets to go see the doctor first thing for a full blood panel, a much needed bath and overall care. We appreciate any assistance that our wonderful contributors and dog lovers can provide!

Liberty ate two huge cups of kibble and some canned food tonight! He clearly had an owner because he knows commands. He loves people and is doing fine with multiple dogs in his foster home.

Update 7/4/06:

Liberty's foster mom reports that this guy is an angel! Liberty sits and downs, plus he shakes paws!!! He got a pretty clean bill of health from our vet - he's on antibiotics for his skin and responding well to good food. Everyone that meets him can't believe how sweet and mellow he is. Liberty is the perfect age - probably around 5, although he's lost a lot of teeth to wear, chewing on rocks or fences. He is housebroken and has excellent manners.

He gets along fine with other dogs but he would be just as happy to be an only boy. Once all of his coat grows back, he will be a stunner!

Update 8/12/06

Liberty's foster mom is a big fan of his! He has gained a lot of weight and filled out; most of his hair has grown back too! He's been neutered and bathed a few times and he is ready to find his forever home!

Liberty walks beautifully on a leash, is reliably housebroken, can stay alone in the house for hours on end without incident AND he has a big dog bark!
Liberty prefers the company of female dogs but will co-exist with friendly males too. We are continuing to treat his skin with antibiotics and soothing baths.

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.
