Coastal German Shepherd Rescue

Hope is available ( Updated 12-14-2018 )

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

Hope was dumped in an overnight shelter space. We've included her intake photo which we still find difficult to look at. Clearly, whoever had her treated her terribly.

This girl is one of the sweetest, most obedient dogs we've ever had in the rescue. Hope has perianal fistulas, an auto immune disease. She's under a dermatologist's care and has made huge strides with aggressive medication. We've even been able to transition her to regular grain free dog food (Nature's Domain - Costco) with no problems! While Hope will always have to be on medications, the costs have plummeted and we see a light at the end of a very long tunnel. Hope is in a foster home that is taking very good care of her in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Housebroken, bomb-proof in the house, fantastic with other dogs, affectionate with people, PERFECT on a leash, loves to be brushed. This is one gal who has blossomed with proper care, daily walks and a nice soft bed for relaxing.

Hope's medical needs are finally straightforward and manageable. She is highly adoptable for a family looking for a low energy, mellow girl.

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.
