Coastal German Shepherd Rescue

Marley is available ( Updated 09-22-2021 )

Female German Shepherd Dog about 3-5 years old. Homes with no other dogs.

We saw a picture of a GSD at the shelter who looked absolutely broken: she couldn't stand, was in obvious pain, looked fearful, and needed help. We rescued her and immediately sent her to our vet

There we discovered it was pyometra, an infection in the uterus. Her uterus was huge and full of pus and her bladder was distended and the size of a volleyball. We can't imagine the pain she'd endured! She did well through surgery and was moved to the emergency hospital where she could receive 24/7 care. It was a few more days, but she was finally able to stand, kept improving, and was then released from the hospital.

Marley is crate trained, good in the house, likes a car ride, and does well on a leash. She loves going for walks and can keep up with the best of them! Marley is going to need an experienced home, as she can get overprotective, and needs to be the only dog in the home. She will repay your kindness with lots of affection and ultimate loyalty.

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.
