Coastal German Shepherd Rescue

Sparky has been adopted! 08-04-2016

Male German Shepherd Dog about 3-5 years old. Good with kids. OK with cats. Gets along with other dogs.

Sparky came in to a Veterinarian's office with a badly fractured leg. The owner couldn't afford the cost or handle the recovery, so she asked the vet to put him down. The vet couldn't bring himself to let such a beautiful, young dog with so much life ahead of him go and reached out to us for help.

We attempted to repair his leg, but the break was displaced and we couldn't get it to heal correctly. The orthopedic specialist recommended amputating the leg to give him the best shot for a long and happy life. He recovered nicely and is building up muscle and walking great on three legs.

He is VERY sweet, dog friendly, potty trained, a little lover boy and might even be fine with cats. He grew up with kids and loves them. He's in a foster home with another large GSD and does great in the home with her.

The minimum adoption donation for adults is $300 and the adoption donation for puppies is $400 - $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.
