Coastal German Shepherd Rescue

Adele has been adopted! 04-04-2020

Female German Shepherd Dog about 1-2 years old. Good with kids. Gets along with other dogs. Not cat friendly.

The first thing people say when meeting Adele is "what a sweet dog!" She loves to greet everyone and is always happy and ready to play.

Adele was abandoned, pregnant, on an Indian Reservation in San Diego County and subsequently gave birth to five puppies in her foster home (Coastal GSR's A litter). She did a fantastic job raising her pups in a foster home and, once they were weaned, moved to OC so that she could be closer to a specialist. She has a slight heart murmur and needed to see a cardiologist, so we got her an appointment with Dr. Miller. Her condition doesn’t require surgery (yay!)- she just needs to take medication that’s about $10 a month.

Adele still acts like a puppy herself and has big clumsy paws and a strong tail that thumps happily on everything. She likes to sit by the fence and monitor the people and dogs who walk by the yard. She listens well when called and told to come inside. She may want to be the alpha around other dogs and needs a home with no cats or there will be trouble (for the cat).

She is very happy and energetic in the morning when everyone in the house awakens and she loves to join in and be part of the family.

Adele is still a puppy herself and is learning to play with toys. She needs a secure yard and preferably a home with no small children because of those clumsy big paws and excited tail. All in all, she is a sweet, joyful, beautiful German Shepherd Dog.

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.
