Coastal German Shepherd Rescue

Neo has been adopted! 05-12-2019

Male Greater Swiss Mountain Dog /German Shepherd Dog mix about 1-2 years old. Gets along with other dogs.

Neo has come so far since his rescue! He's a bouncy, sweet, curious, happy boy who looks like he's a Greater Swiss Mountain Dog mix. He's easy on a leash, loves exploring OC, and is much less scared meeting new people. He is especially fond of the Back Bay and is now confident enough to get up on the rocks to check out the water.

Only around a year old, Neo came to us missing most of his coat due to a bad case of mange. He stayed at the vet hospital for months until he was ready to be released, looked good as new, and felt much, much better! This handsome guy doesn't seem to have been socialized much before he met us, as he can be fearful of new people and new situations. We've been getting him out, socializing him, and he's doing much better with every passing day. He's good on a leash, knows his basic commands, and can't wait to find a home of his own. A house with lots of young children might be overwhelming for this handsome boy, but he does have a lot of energy and would love to join an active household.

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.
