Coastal German Shepherd Rescue

Cameron has been adopted! 07-05-2020

Male German Shepherd Dog /Xoloitzcuintli mix about 1-2 years old. Good with kids. Gets along with other dogs.

Cameron was picked up as a stray by animal control and then found himself a resident of the San Bernardino City shelter. We don't know his past, but he was missing 99.5% of his hair when we rescued him and sent him to our vet in March of 2019. One biopsy and one dermatologist visit later, it was determined that he had an antibiotic resilient infection that would require some specialized care to resolve. He continued to see his specialist, received medicated baths, as well as medication, and turned the corner, but remains hairless. He has a fine layer of baby-like hair and his legs have more, making it look like he's wearing Uggs. He's been medically cleared and is now completely healthy, but we don't know if he'll ever have a full coat. Maybe he's a GSD/Xoloitzcuintli mix? Maybe he's just starting a new trend!

Around 1-1½ years old, Cameron lives in a foster home with a GSD and child, is potty trained, easy on a leash, knows his basic commands, and loves nothing more than running for balls. He's also been exposed to small dogs and had no issues with him, but he's a hulking 100+ pound puppy who sometimes doesn't know his own strength. Cameron has never met a person he didn't love, but can be shy around children (at first). He's a giant love bug who has the biggest smile and an even bigger heart.

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.
