Coastal German Shepherd Rescue

Sutton has been adopted! 06-10-2018

Male German Shepherd Dog /Australian Shepherd mix about 7-9 months old. Gets along with other dogs.

Sutton came to us along with his mother, Savvy, who is also available for adoption through Coastal GSR. Both mom and pup were very scared and it took time for them to warm up to the people around them. Sutton lived in a foster home with four large shepherd sisters and did fine with all of the dogs, but needed help overcoming his shyness around people. We sent him to boot camp and he's now much more outgoing, social, and even obedience trained! He is potty trained, crate trained, easy on a leash, a velcro dog, and now obedience trained. He will still be fearful around people he doesn't know and will need a home who can give him the structure and time he needs to trust them. He has not been around cats, so we aren't sure how he will react to them, and he's scared of energetic children and would do best with kids over 10 years of age.

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.
