Coastal German Shepherd Rescue

Joe has been adopted! 01-01-2005

Female about 0 old.

Joe is about 4 years old and is a wonderful family pet, although we don't recommend him in a home with toddlers. He is very patient with older kids and loves to be part of the activity but he also likes his "alone" time.

Joe is housebroken, knows some commands and walks well on a leash. Joe originally came to us after being confiscated as a "bait" dog - he had been used in illegal dog fighting rings to "egg on" the fighting dogs. He originally had quite a few scars on his legs and head but over the past year, his coat has grown in and he is definitely a suburban guy, just looking for a quiet family to call his own.

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.
