Coastal German Shepherd Rescue

Hercules has been adopted! 10-05-2019

Male German Shepherd Dog about 3-5 years old. Good with kids. Gets along with other dogs.

Hercules is probably experiencing life as a valued family pet for the first time in his life. Around 5 years old, he's found that he loves being inside the house much more than left in the backyard. Houses have these soft objects that you can lie down on, they have people, and they have other dogs. Hercules gets along with dogs of all sizes, but he's not exactly sure how to engage in play and can sometimes look like he doesn't know how to approach other dogs. "Excuse me, do you want to play? I totally understand if you're busy. I don't mean to bother you. Have a good day."

He's currently living with a large and small-to-medium sized dog and is definitely the most submissive of the crew. He's potty trained, good in the house, is low energy, and very low maintenance. This big boy loves food- this might be the first time he's been on a regularly scheduled meal plan- but he's not aggressive around it. He can be shy with new people and can be scared in new situations, but he's super sweet, loving, and will make the best companion to someone who is looking for loyal buddy who loves affection, but isn't needy.

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.
