Coastal German Shepherd Rescue

Missy is available ( Updated 12-06-2023 )

Female German Shepherd Dog about 10+ years old. Not for homes with kids. Not cat friendly. Homes with no other dogs.

There is no line of people trying to adopt Missy. Who can say why, but it's shocking!

Sure, she’s a senior who is around 13 years old. Missy was adopted years ago, but, sadly, her adopter passed away and she's back with us. OK, she’s on prescription food for some GI issues. It's true, she's more of a one person kind of dog who would rather share all of her time with you over being the life of some big social gathering. They're gross. You can catch COVID-19 at large social gatherings. She's trying to keep you healthy. Of course, she wants to be the only dog in the home. She doesn't like cats. Oh, and she's a senior with arthritis in her hips and takes Metacam for that. Yes, she's also now on medication for seizures, because she had a small one and we sent her to a neurologist who preformed a spinal tap (to rule out meningitis), thought her pituitary gland looked normal, ruled out Cushing's disease, imaged her four ways to Friday, ruled out any tumors in her brain, put her on Zonisamide (for epilepsy), and she hasn't had a seizure since. Talk about being vetted.

Adopt a seizure free gal pal!

Here's what you're missing: a dog who will be your ride of die. A GSD who is potty trained, crate trained, good in the house, wants to be with you at all times, but doesn't freak out if you leave the house because separation anxiety would make her appear needy and she doesn't even like saying that word. A dog who loves going on walks and doesn't need them kept short because you're judging her age. She can walk and walk and walk and still find time to chase squirrels. You'd be missing out on the best dog her foster has ever fostered (but can't adopt, because, when things go back to "normal," she'll be traveling half the month). Every day you don't adopt her is a day you won't know the love of a senior dog, which is the truest love on earth. 💙

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.
