Coastal German Shepherd Rescue

Tyler is available ( Updated 01-16-2019 )

Male German Shepherd Dog about 1-2 years old. Gets along with other dogs.

We received a plea for Tyler, who was at a high-kill Inland Empire shelter after he appeared to have been hit by a car. His front right elbow was badly fractured and his owner was contacted, but didn't come to retrieve him. He's only about 2-3 years old, but he was in a lot of pain and the shelter decided he had until 5 PM that day for a rescue to step in or they'd be euthanizing him.

We rescued him and he went straight to our vet. The orthopedic surgeon found his elbow to be in such bad shape that, even after 4 hours in surgery, it wasn't fixable and his leg was amputated. He's had a few weeks of recovery and is getting around like a champ, but will get even better as time goes on! This handsome boy is good with people, gets along with large and small dogs, and is an all around gem of a GSD.

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.
