Coastal German Shepherd Rescue

Fabi has been adopted! 02-01-2020

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

Fabi was born in a backyard and lived there with dozens and dozens of other dogs. She wasn't socialized with people and was terrified of them when we were asked to rescue multiple dogs from this property. She would curl up in the fetal position and hide in any corner she could find, but never showed any aggression. She takes comfort in other dogs and is good with dogs of all sizes. We sent her to a training boot camp, which socialized her and has made her so much less scared of people, but she is still timid and is going to take a little while to open up to new people. Around 35 pounds, she's got the most dazzling eyes, is a gentle pup, adores other dogs, now knows how to walk on a leash, is crate trained, and looking for a patient person who can help a timid dog adjust to their new life.

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.
