Coastal German Shepherd Rescue

Kramer has been adopted! 11-29-2015

Male German Shepherd Dog about 7-9 months old. Gets along with other dogs.

As just a puppy, Kramer found himself at a high-kill shelter. We rescued him and discovered that he'd never been socialized, was scared of people and unsure how to play with other dogs. This young pup went through training with one of the best feral dog trainers we know and has made great progress! He's obedience trained and has been spending time with new people, learning that we're nothing to fear. Kramer loves other dogs, but doesn't understand proper dog language and will jump on and dominate other dogs, like a young puppy. If he goes into a home with another dog, he'll need to be supervised and paired with a dog who won't hurt him for the behavior, but correct him and teach him how to act. Right now, he spends time with Bart, who is teaching him how to be a dog and what's not acceptable. (Bart doesn't have a mean bone in his body and is very gentle with Kramer, even when he's correcting him.) If you put in the time with Kramer, this gorgeous boy will be the best dog you've ever had as part of your family!

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. 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.
