Coastal German Shepherd Rescue

Rikka has been adopted! 03-05-2006

Female about 0 old.

Rikka is a gorgeous classic lady of about 5 years old. Bailed on her last day at the shelter, we think we know why she was abandoned. She is a very alert, active girl and without daily activity and interaction, she was probably too difficult to handle. If she didn't have a grey muzzle, we'd guess that she was under two years old.

Rikka gets along fine with submissive dogs. She has been in a foster home with some alpha-ish females and they have a tentative truce but she would truly bloom with a submissive dog for a partner. She really loves to play but when two alpha females try to play, it tends to end up in fisticuffs.

Rikka will sleep the night in a crate and responds very well to correction and training. She definitely wants to please but she isn't a dog for a pushover because she is one smart cookie!

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.
