Coastal German Shepherd Rescue

Remembering Skippy
Rest in Peace

Male about old.

Skippy was rescued from the San Bernadino City Shelter with his 3 siblings. The 4 ten - 12 week old puppies were found living under a mobile home. Scared and confused these poor babies ended up at the high kill shelter with little hope of being saved. Fortunately their little sister Sunny stole the hearts of some of the shelter workers and volunteers. She was the most outgoing of the pups and quickly warmed up to the attention from the shelter staff. Seeing how sweet and loving she was, they figured there was hope for all the pups if a rescue could be found to save them. They appealed to Coastal to save not only little Sunny, but her 3 littermates as well.

Upon arriving at their foster home it was apparent that these pups had missed a lot of interaction with people and would need to learn that people and life in general was nothing to be afraid of. To accomplish this, each pup would need to be placed in separate foster homes. Once split out, each pup has begun to blossom. They are being exposed to people and other pets and are well on their way to being adoptable.

Update 10/27/11
Skippy has come a long way in a short time. He loves his foster mom and all the foster dogs and puppies in his foster home. He has learned how to play with the big and little dogs alike. He loves to be petted and loves to play with his toys. He now follows his foster mom around and is happy to adventure around by himself.

Skippy is crate trained and sleeps through the night without needing to be taken out. Playing with his toys or chewing on "antlers" are some of his favorite things to do during the day. While he is a playful active little boy, he is a very calm puppy and will easily fit into a new home. While he has missed out on things early in his life, he is eager to learn about his new world. This smart and sweet boy just needs a family to continue to show him the world is a wonderful place.

Sadly this wonderful little guy never found his forever Family, having succumbed to Distemper. Your foster family loved you little man and were so sorry they weren't able to save you. Your "paws prints" are etched forever in their hearts and you will be loving remembered forever.

Rest in Peace little golden boy.

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.
