Coastal German Shepherd Rescue

Remembering Miley
Rest in Peace

Female about old.

Miley came to us from a high kill shelter and was rescued on her last day. She had been adopted twice before and when the owners found out she had a condition called Mega-esophagus they immediately dumped her back at the shelter.

Mega-E is a very manageable condition that some pups end up with at birth or even later in life and it only requires that the pup be fed in a vertical position so that the food can find its way down to the stomach (gravity takes hold) – the esophagus muscle does not work properly and therefore does not transfer food down to stomach on its own. Miley shares a foster home with another Mega-E dog and has been putting on weight and improving on a daily basis.

Miley is a very sweet pup and enjoys her people and canine friends. She is crate trained, potty trained, knows many commands such as lay down, out, stay, etc. She is very loyal to her people and comes on command. She will be on the small side, probably 40 -45 lbs and she will thrive in a home with a family that is willing to put in the time and effort to manage her condition, it might take an extra 20 minutes to feed her but she is well worth the extra effort.

Puppies are a life-long commitment. They need time, training, vet care and healthy feeding to become good canine citizens. Don't even think of adopting a puppy unless you intend to invest the time and money and commitment required, and you can expect to lose a few good shoes along the way!

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.
