Coastal German Shepherd Rescue

Buddy has been adopted! 01-22-2006

Female about 0 old.

When Buddy was about two years old, his first owner, a military man, shipped out. The mans mother agreed to care for Buddy and did so for almost four years. Unfortunately, she developed some health problems and, reluctantly, decided to turn Buddy over to a shelter, hoping he would be adopted. Buddy was very confused and afraid as he waited in vain in the cold, scary shelter for his mom to return. Fortunately, the shelter called Coastal German Shepherd Rescue and we swooped in to bring Buddy to the safety a foster home.

Buddy is a sturdy, attractive, medium-sized White German Shepherd. Hes dignified and calm, but also very playful with his foster siblings. His foster mom is helping him watch what he eats so hell be in perfect shape for his new family. Hes non-dominant, crate-trained, and gets along well with other dogs, both girls and boys. Gentle, patient, cooperative, and affectionate, Buddy is also good with small dogs (he lived with one in his early years) and small children (his foster mom has a four-year-old granddaughter). He could use a little refresher on his obedience training, but his manners are really quite nice. His foster mom says hes an easy dog to have around.

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.
