Coastal German Shepherd Rescue

Zoe is available ( Updated 04-01-2020 )

Female German Shepherd Dog /Labrador Retriever mix about 3-5 years old. Gets along with other dogs.

Zoe was rescued from a high-kill shelter when her time ran out. Again. You see, she was adopted (by the public) and returned two times; both times because the adopters expected her to act as if she'd been with them forever, inherently knew the rules, what was expected of her, and should be ok with way too much freedom. Since coming to us, she's been in a foster home with other dogs, has been given boundaries and structure, and now she understands what's expected of her. She's also decompressed, because her foster took it slow and didn't overwhelm her with lots of new people and lots of trips.

Zoe's around 3-4 years old, great in the house, potty trained, is living with and gets along with large and small dogs, and absolutely adores going on long walks. The home best for Zoe will be one with shepherd experience who knows how to apply structure so that she doesn't get overprotective of her people. She's playful, sweet, loves her people, and would like to see her third time be the charm!

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.
