Coastal German Shepherd Rescue

Duke has been adopted! 03-12-2017

Male Shepherd /Poodle (unknown type) mix about 4-6 months old. Good with kids. Gets along with other dogs.

When Duke arrived at his foster home, it was clear that he was never socialized and was an outside only dog. Despite all that, he was very sweet and really wanted a human's affection. In less then a week, he was a completely different dog! He loves, loves, loves to play with the two German Shepherds in the home. He will lay in your lap and cuddle if you're sitting. If he's on the bed with you, he will cuddle up and sleep in your arms like a baby. He is great with kids as well! He's still a little timid, but curious.

Duke is kind and loving and would be great in a home with children and/or other dogs. His fosters have been working on socializing him and he is adapting very well. He was not previously potty trained but is smart and picks things up quickly. Currently, due to his age, he is teething and can be destructive with things if you don’t correct it. Also lots of activity will help by tiring him out. He is timid and submissive but has a fun personality.

He's a great dog and will make someone very happy.

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.
