Coastal German Shepherd Rescue

Fargo is available ( Updated 12-14-2018 )

Male German Shepherd Dog /Black Labrador Retriever mix about 1-2 years old. Not for homes with kids.

This cutie was on the euthanasia list at the OC Shelter, but we thought he might prefer being rescued, instead! Now known as Fargo, this handsome boy has a new name to go along with his new life.

Fargo knows his basic commands and is progressing well with his obedience training. So well, he's moved to off-leash training! He's very smart, and super food and ball motivated, so he's fun to train. He doesn't react to other dogs, unless they are showing aggression or trying to dominate him. He is very young and still very mouthy, so a home with no children would be best. He’s also not sure what to make of strangers and is fearful of the unknown, but bonds really well with his handlers. He’ll need a home with experienced owners who can show him how to be a balanced dog.

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.
