Coastal German Shepherd Rescue

Taco is available ( Updated 12-07-2019 )

Male German Shepherd Dog /Labrador Retriever mix about 10+ years old.

If you've been searching for a vintage GSD/Lab mix who only gets more valuable with age, meet Taco. He's not a senior, he's experienced. He's a classic Porsche. He's a fine wine. He's blue cheese. This handsome boy will turn 10 years old on October 20th and he'd really like to celebrate a decade of goofy smiles with someone he can call family. ❤️

When he was returned at 9 (going on 10), after having been adopted as a puppy, Taco didn't love me. He didn't even like me. In fact, he was like "Who else is here? Do I have options?" But, after some walks, a few treats, and a few more walks, he realized I was OK and, what the heck, maybe even lovable. If he can love me, I know he can love you!

Taco can’t wait to find his special someone. Someone who has a low to no traffic household in which you can both enjoy your retirement years. Someone who is happy taking a stroll rather than running for miles and miles. Someone who would look as good in selfies as he does. Someone who is looking for a best friend. He needs to be an only dog, but doesn't lose his mind when he sees dogs while out on a walk- he just wasn't socialized with them and doesn't understand how to interact with them. When you're his person, he's a great dog and all about you. He knows basic commands, is a good listener, is good in the house, and just asks for a soft bed by your feet. (You can see his puppy pictures in his bio.)

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.
