Coastal German Shepherd Rescue

Fargo is available ( Updated 11-25-2022 )

Male German Shepherd Dog /Black Labrador Retriever mix about 6-9 years old. Not for homes with kids.

Fargo is a true working dog who is motivated by his stomach and toys. He's ridiculously smart and obedience trained, but wasn't socialized prior to his rescue. He's spent the last five years training (can you believe we just hit his 5 year anniversary with the rescue?) and now just needs someone who will help him transition what he's learned into becoming part of a family.

We rescued Fargo from the OC Shelter and he's proven to be a smarty pants with a nose that never stops. He looks to have had no structure in his previous home and will do best with someone who has large breed experience (working dog experience a plus!) and understands dogs who are bot good with strangers. He's a big puppy, can be mouthy, and can be fearfull and reactive around fast moving people whom he doesn't already know, so a low traffic home with no children is recommended. He is, however, super food motivated and follows direction like a well oiled machine once he’s bonded with you, so he just needs to find someone who will work with him and allow him to grow into a perfectly balanced boy. Fargo loves his toys, his walks, is obedience trained, and a super quick study. He knows sit, down, stay, come, heel, swing, place, back, drop it, slip, hupf, nein, and then some. This handsome boy is ready to move into a home of his own!

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.
