Coastal German Shepherd Rescue

Kaepernick has been adopted! 06-17-2014

Male Australian Shepherd about 1-2 years old. Gets along with other dogs. Not for homes with kids.

Kaepernick (Kap to his friends) came to us absolutely terrified and would shake violently if a human was petting him. He's come a long way and now enjoys a scratch on the head and usually rolls right over for belly rubs.

Kap completed a training boot camp through Your Dog Trainer. This was an intensive, one on one, 3 week course - he responded famously; in fact, he's become one of the "office" dogs so he can be exposed to as many people as possible. He adores going on walks and that is when he's the most comfortable and relaxed.

Kap has only shown aggression one time and that was when he was first rescued and his reaction was from fear, not true aggression. He has never shown any aggression (other than making sure other dogs don't get his food!) since then. He LOVES a good Kong and he's great with other dogs.

He might always be a bit shy, but he's come so far in the time we've had him and we have great hopes for him.

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.
