Coastal German Shepherd Rescue

Poppy has been adopted! 07-08-2019

Female Husky /German Shepherd Dog mix about 10-12 months old. Gets along with other dogs.

Poppy was at a shelter and, when no one came for her or adopted her, she found herself in danger. We were told she was a GSD mix and threw her a life vest. Now, seeing her in person, we know she's not even the second cousin twice removed of a GSD. She's likely a Husky or Klee Kai mix, as she's around 35 pounds and looks to be half cotton ball. Whatever she is, she's adorable and probably around 11-12 months old.

We have a volunteer who is determined to make us a Husky rescue. He's winning. He's really winning. 😅😂

Poppy came to us with a bad case of kennel cough, but pushed past that and was just healthy enough to finally be spayed. She's shy with new people, but great with dogs of all sizes and warms up to people in time. She's actually a little baby who loves to be carried, but we informed her leash skills are important so we're working on those now.

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.
