Coastal German Shepherd Rescue

Harper and Rommel has been adopted! 01-01-2005

Female about 0 old.

When we were contacted by the shelter to help these two gorgeous dogs, we were unable to say no. A label of "older dog" in a shelter is nearly always a death sentence and when we heard their story, we couldn't help but save them.

Rommel and Harper were well loved and cared for by their person for nearly eight years. When he passed away, there were no provisions for their care and no one in the family could (or would) commit to take them in. Harper has cataracts and is nearly blind - she can see shadows but Rommel is her seeing eye dog. Harper is a beautiful blonde lady with a slim figure; Rommel is a big classic fellow. Both are much more agile than their 8 years would suggest - they have many years left to love and be loved!



We plan to try very hard to place these two beautiful dogs together in their forever home. Please don't let Harper's disability scare you away. Once these two are met, its hard not to fall in love with them.

The minimum adoption donation for adults is $300 and the adoption donation for puppies is $400 - $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. 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.
