Coastal German Shepherd Rescue

Ken is available ( Updated 09-22-2021 )

Male German Shepherd Dog about 3-5 years old. Not for homes with kids.

At 3 years old, Ken was surrendered to a high-kill shelter by his own owner. We don't know what led to this decision, but Ken wasn't doing well at the shelter and became "rescue only." We were able to save him and sent him directly to the training facility where he could get some one-on-one attention. It doesn't appear that anyone had ever worked with Ken before and, while he's an enthusiastic young boy, he had no manners and couldn't walk nicely on a leash. This gorgeous boy has gotten much better, is walked by numerous volunteers now and does well on a leash, knows his basic commands, and is super food and toy motivated.

While Ken has improved so much since his rescue, he's going to need a GSD savvy home in which to live. He's a very dominant personality and, while he has done well with dogs who ignore him, would do best as the only dog in the home.

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.
