Coastal German Shepherd Rescue

Harper has been adopted! 01-04-2020

Female German Shepherd Dog about 1-2 years old.

We received an email from the shelter that a female GSD came in as stray and, 4 days later, gave birth to a litter of 6 puppies: the whole family needed immediate rescue! The shelter is no place for newborn puppies and, thanks to a foster offer, we were able to save the whole family. Harper was a great mother, but her puppies have all since been adopted and she's now ready to venture off on her own.

This beauty loves people and bonds quickly. Harper's smart, loves to cuddle, is good on a leash, a quick study, and would love nothing more than to be surrounded by a big family where there's always someone with whom she can play.

When she was raising her puppies, there was an incident in which the other dogs in the home entered the room where she and the puppies were housed. Since then, she has not been a fan of other dogs, but it's fear based and we're working with her to overcome it so that she can be at ease around other dogs. She's very motivated to please and can be around other dogs on leash, but, at this time, would prefer a home with no other dogs.

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. 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.
