Coastal German Shepherd Rescue

Maple is available ( Updated 12-14-2018 )

Female German Shepherd Dog about 1-2 years old. Good with kids.

Sadly, Maple almost lost her life because the shelter labeled her "Rescue Only," which means she wasn't made available for public adoption. When we inquired as to why, we were told that she is excitable around other dogs and needs training. Are there any dogs that don't need some training? We didn't think so, so we rescued this cutie, around 2 years old, and promised to help her find a family of her own.

This beauty is super affectionate, wicked smart, great on a leash, basic obedience trained, and gorgeous. OK, she wants to be the only dog, but she's doing you a favor! Do you know how expensive it is to care for two dogs? And cleaning two times the dog hair? Using two times the lint brushes? Buying two times the toys and treats? Two times the flea and tick prevention? We could go on, but we hope you're starting to see that Maple is like a warm, loving, soft savings account.

Maple's a people pleaser and is constantly working on improving her obedience game (she's almost a Jedi Master). She adores people, big or small, and, although she can be near other dogs without losing her mind, she would prefer a home with no other canines.

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.
