Coastal German Shepherd Rescue

Angel is available ( Updated 11-25-2022 )

Female German Shepherd Dog about 6-9 years old. Not for homes with kids.

Angel's fantastic in the house, crate trained, gets along with other dogs, and needs someone with GSD experience who can give her structure and boundaries. She will repay you with more love than you thought imaginable!

Angel's owners wanted to surrender her to their local shelter because she became infested with ticks. She didn’t even have a name – her owners just called her “Dog.” We were contacted by a concerned animal control officer and we invited Angel to join the Coastal family. Now that the ticks are history and she is safe with us, this beauty is doing very well in her foster home. Angel is a big (90 pounds), sweet girl who’s quick to learn and eager to please, but she can be stubborn and will take charge if allowed so she needs a calm, assertive handler who can give her leadership and consistency. She’s become very good on a leash, has learned some basic commands (heel, halt, sit), and continues to improve her manners and obedience.

Angel is almost perfect in every way, but she tends to pick her favorite person in the household and not bond with anyone else- she will also protect them from the other members of the household (including dogs), if allowed. She would do best in a low traffic home that has GSD experience and understands dogs who need a leader.

The minimum adoption donation for adults is $375 and the adoption donation for puppies is $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 when permitted by law. 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.
