Coastal German Shepherd Rescue

Katja has been adopted! 12-08-2012

Female about 0 old.

Poor Katja has quite a story. She she somehow ended up in a high kill shelter in mid April. Originally listed as a male German Shepherd, her owners were contacted, but they never came. Still listed as a male German Shepherd, she was then "labled" as aggressive, rescue only. One day in mid May this petite girl was reexamined and found to not only be a female, but appearing to be pregnant. She gave birth to 5 puppies a few days later on May 21st. Her time was running out and things were looking bleak for this new Mom and her babies. Fortunately we were able to rescue her and her newborn babies and get them settled in a foster home where Katja finally realized she and her babies were safe.

Katja is a beautiful, black girl with golden highlights in her fur. Katja is actually not a German Shepherd, but appears to possibly be a Kelpie mix. She is small and petite, weighing 35 - 40 pounds. Katja is also young, her teeth are sparkly white indicating she is probably just 12 - 18 months old. She is very sweet and loving and enjoys attention. She is also very agile and athletic, so will do well in an active home. Katja is housebroken and well mannered in the house. She has a wonderful temperament and is very easy to live with. This petite beauty will make a wonderful addition to the family who adopts her. She will give years of devotion, loyalty and love to her new family.

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.
