Coastal German Shepherd Rescue

Apollo Jr has been adopted! 10-28-2018

Male White German Shepherd /German Shepherd Dog mix about 4-6 months old. Good with kids. OK with cats. Gets along with other dogs.

Little Apollo was rescued in the nick of time from an emergency vet hospital. We were given minutes to decide if we could help him - his family couldn't afford the needed surgery and was going to put him down. He's wasn't even four months old! Apollo was purchased for them as a wedding gift and was attacked by their other dogs when the family was away. Neighbors heard the ruckus, broke up the melee, and found Apollo completely beaten up, punctures all over his body, and with a broken leg.

We couldn't say no, so we rescued him and sent him directly to our amazing vet, where he had femur repair surgery and his wounds were treated. It's been a little over two months of recovery and this young pup feels 100%! He's been in a great foster home with a family and two other large dogs, does great with them, is super playful, crate trained, potty trained, and loving life. He has been exposed to young children and does well, as long as he is supervised (he's a mouthy puppy who doesn't know his own strength and can be jumpy if left unsupervised around children).

If you know GSDs and are looking for a smart, energetic, adorable bundle of love and can continue the training started by his foster family, you will find this boy to be the perfect addition to your pack!

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.
