Coastal German Shepherd Rescue

DeeDee has been adopted! 01-01-2006

Female about 0 old.

Animal Control responded to a call of a deceased dog in a drainage ditch. When they arrived on the scene they found sweet DeeDee alive, but bleeding profusely from what appeared to be a bobcat or coyote attack. While in route to an emergency hospital, DeeDee lost consciousness and the officers thought they were going to lose her several times. DeeDee made it through surgery and is on her road to recovery.

This is DeeDee's photo from the shelter. Luckily we now have her in our care, safe and cozy in the home of one of our volunteers. She has over 50 staples across her neck and torso. She will need several visits to check her wounds and make sure she is healing well. She is a very strong and brave little 4 month old who struggled to survive and only deserves the best now.

Update 12/30/05:


DeeDee is the ultimate puppy! She is housebroken, sleeps quietly on her bed and has perfect house manners, yet she is also a playful baby ready to learn everything. DeeDee is lucky to be alive and we are so glad that she is. She has healed perfectly and her hair is growing back nicely. DeeDee loves other dogs, cats and kids. It is hard to say what her mix is...she has a gorgeous sable coat with hound or mountain dog ears! It looks like she will be a big girl, but it is difficult to know. DeeDee is currently in a foster home where she spends her days lounging with the big dogs, playing rough games of tug with her shepherd sister, gnawing on Kong toys (her favorite) and eating! Did we mention that DeeDee loves to eat? She is on a natural diet and loving it!! DeeDee is ready to move into permanent digs of her own. She will make a wonderful addition for a family with children and dogs.

Please help us help Dee Dee by making a donation today. Make a donation here.

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.
