Coastal German Shepherd Rescue

Bella has been adopted! 06-28-2016

Female German Shepherd Dog about 6-9 years old. Good with kids. Gets along with other dogs. Not cat friendly.

Bella is a loving, affectionate 7-year-old German Shepherd looking for a foster/adoptive home. She is great with kids and babies, but doesn’t care for cats. She is trained and obedient with a long list of personal commands. She does get excited when visitors first arrive at the house and of course when the mailman comes, but settles quickly once she knows that relaxing is what is expected of her.

Bella is looking for a home with a fenced in back yard and an energetic family to go walking/running/hiking with her. She loves fetching tennis balls and chewing on toys, but doesn’t chew on anything that’s not hers.

Bella will do great in a home experienced with the German Shepherds’ personality and traits, like being energetic, loyal, and vocal about her desire to protect the home and family. A quieter, consistent home will help her to relax. Bella will look to you, her new “Pack Leader” to help her understand what is expected and she will obey once she is clear on the expectations.

Bella's family originally took her in off the streets and tried to find an owner, but didn't have any luck. She's healthy, but they know they can't give her the attention she needs with two small babies in the home. They are heartbroken to let her go to another family, but feel if we can find her a loving home where she will get the get the attention she needs it will be best for her.

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.
