Coastal German Shepherd Rescue

Holly Bear has been adopted! 08-03-2017

Female German Shepherd Dog about 10-12 months old. Good with kids. Gets along with other dogs.

Holly Bear was acquired through Craig’s List by a single mother who was providing her 9 year old daughter with a puppy. As time passed, her circumstances changed and she was unable to care for Holly Bear. The puppy was passed to an acquaintance that had her for about two months. During that time Holly Bear was found twice in one week outside the care of the new family. She was then found out wandering a third time with a two year old boy and the Sheriff was able to contact the original owner who again handed Holly back to the friends. In less than a week, Holly Bear was found wandering through the neighborhood where one of the foster's client’s took her in and called the number on the dog tags. Again, the original owner came to pick her up. The client then contacted the foster and asked if she could help this single mother whose situation had now gotten worse. The foster brought Holly Bear home to give her a better opportunity to find a stable and caring family.

Holly Bear is a typical 9 month old puppy! Lots of energy, playful, friendly, socialized and already up to date on shots along with being spayed and microchipped. She knows basic commands and will need a dedicated owner to give her structure, consistency and exercise. She is great with other dogs, and children but has not been cat tested. She is potty and crate trained (she’s not a fan of the crate) and does well in the car.

Holly Bear's requested adoption donation is $500.

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.
