Coastal German Shepherd Rescue

Dax has been adopted! 05-27-2018

Male German Shepherd Dog /Belgian Shepherd Malinois mix about 3-5 years old. Gets along with other dogs. Not for homes with kids.

When Dax's owner passed away, he was taken to the local shelter. We rescued him and have fallen in love with his sweet and gentle nature. Dax is fantastic with other dogs, but didn't appear to have been socialized with people or even let in the house. He was in a great foster home and they worked with him: he's now potty trained, can be left alone with no issues, loves his toys, and started coming out of his shell.

Dax adores adults, but is still a little scared of children. They are loud, fast, and just a lot to take! He isn't bad with children, but he keeps his distance and would prefer a home with just adults. We're guessing he never left his former owner's backyard, as leashes, loud noises, and fast moving objects were overwhelming for him in the beginning, but he's made ridiculous amounts of progress in a short period of time and is a totally different dog now. He's good on a leash, knows his basic commands, loves learning new things, and is a very happy boy. Dax found that living inside with a family was a heck of a lot more fun than never leaving the backyard!

If you’re looking for an adult dog, around 3-5 years old, who is dog friendly, good in the house, super sweet, and longing for people to love, this handsome boy is everything on your wish list.

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.
