Coastal German Shepherd Rescue

Mia has been adopted! 08-08-2020

Female German Shepherd Dog about 6-9 years old. Good with kids. Gets along with other dogs.

Mia was purchased as a puppy 6-7 years ago (the owners couldn’t be more specific). They said the dogs were for the children and now, with their child leaving for college, they were rehoming Mia. We rescued her and immediately sent her to our vet. Both of her ears were badly infected (they appeared to be chronic infections that had not been treated), she had arthritis, and her coat was a disaster of mats, tangles, fleas, and foxtails. A total sweetheart with a great temperament, she was started on some meds and we began the grooming process. There were 13 sessions of brushing, as well as some cutting, before we attempted to bathe her. The grooming table was where Mia mastered steps for the first time and it became such old hat that you could sometimes find her napping as we worked on her!

Mia is good with other dogs and seeks a home who will want her inside with the family. She's spent enough time outside and longs to be treated as a valued member of the pack, getting to cuddle with you, laying at your feet or just following you around the house. This beauty might be older, but she's young at heart, is the sweetest and most gentle gal, and has more love to give than you can imagine. 💙

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.
