Coastal German Shepherd Rescue

Rocky has been adopted! 06-22-2012

Female about 0 old.

Rocky wasn't given much time in the shelter - he had so many strikes against him - blind, senior, missing patches of hair. Again we were faced with the thought of yet another senior tossed out like the trash. Left to chance in a county shelter where there was little hope of anyone taking a 2nd look at him.

Posting his plea on Facebook, we were able to get him into an initial foster home. He has since moved to a 2nd foster home where he lives with a number of other dogs, ranging from pups to seniors, girls & boys. Rocky has fit in beautifully and wants no trouble - his motto is live & let live. He listens carefully for his foster human before venturing outside but once out, he loves to wander and explore. He figures out his surroundings very quickly and he lives for mealtime! When he hears the kibble bouncing in the bowls, he lets loose an earthshaking WOOF (we are working on toning that down, just because he is blind doesn't mean he can't wait his turn!). He is also in tune with what is going on outside his immediate area and is a decent watch dog - that bark means business when you hear it outside!!!

Rocky has very few problems other than sight. He is agile, housebroken, walks nicely on a leash and does well with other dogs. He appears to have flea allergies so we keep up on his monthly flea medication and his coat is starting to shine after a couple of months of good nutrition.

Please don't overlook Rocky if you are looking for a mellow, older dog. He would love to live with a retired person who wants company.

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.
