Coastal German Shepherd Rescue

Brio has been adopted! 09-25-2005

Female about 0 old.

Brio: Vigor; vivacity.

This long legged handsome boy probably has some Australian Shepherd mixed in with German Shepherd. He has mysterious eyes to go with his brindle coat.


A good Samaritan contacted us about a dog that she found - she tried to keep him but circumstances wouldn't allow it. Brio's coat is crying out for good nutrition - he has probably been an outdoor dog for his entire life. In addition, we're certain he has been mistreated. He is very shy and submissive. BUT, he LOVES kids. He went to his first adoption event and hung back for most of the day, but by the time we were ready to go home, he got the coveted spot across three kids' laps in the back. Happy, happy boy.



We would like to see Brio end up in a home with kids and another well loved dog so that Brio can learn what its like to live the "good life".



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.
