Coastal German Shepherd Rescue

Beau has been adopted! 12-02-2017

Male German Shepherd Dog about 1-2 years old. Good with kids. OK with cats. Gets along with other dogs.

Beau is just about a year old. He had a congenital deformity in his left rear leg when he was rescued from the shelter. That leg was amputated and now Beau is struggling to learn to walk using his right rear leg. He had a surgery and physical therapy to try and help but he still has issues using his rear leg when trying to stand and walk. He has recently been fitted for a cart to give him support as he develops strength in his rear leg and builds up his stamina. He is adjusting to it but still tires out.

Beau is very loving with people and lives in a foster home with other dogs. He has also lived with a cat. He loves to cuddle and thinks he is a big lap dog.

Beau is potty & crate trained and has never gone in the house. He has had some basic obedience training which will need to be continued.

Beau gets very attached to people so switching his "people" and living space can be upsetting to him. He can also fear bark at new dogs in a busy environment but, usually, if he is allowed to greet the other dogs, he calms down. He has been good with other dogs in boarding and in foster homes but wants to play with them and can come on strong.

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.
