Obi has been adopted! 03-02-2021
Obi is a very special boy. He is approximately 5 months old and full of energy. You need to be super active to keep up with him. He’s very affectionate. Affectionate to the point where he might try to nip you out of happiness but he’s learning that it’s not okay to do so. Therefore, it’s best if he’s not around little kids. He will smother you with kisses every morning and will try to sit in your lap and burrow his face in. And when you stop petting him, he’ll paw you and whine till you start again. He has separation anxiety and needs to be around you. As long as he can see you, he’s happy. So having someone who can take him to work (even after the pandemic) will suit him best. He will protest every time you ask him to go inside his crate. But, he’s better about it at night if he sees you sleeping as well. He will not bother you until you wake up in the morning at 6:30 am. If you try sleeping in, he’ll make sure you stick to your routine. You’ll never need an alarm clock! He’s extremely intelligent! Within two weeks he learned all his basic commands! He’s potty-trained and expects a treat every time he’s done his business.
Obi is extremely alert and will let you know if your Amazon package has arrived or if there’s a dog walking by your house.
He’s going to need to some additional training and to be socialized with other people and dogs. We would love to find him a home with another dog in it who can play with Obi and set an example for him.
Obi is the kind of puppy that will always be by your side and he’ll always look out for you.
Some background on Obi: he was found as a stray in Bakersfield. He had some GI issues when he first came to Coastal GSR but he has been treated by a vet. He still has a sensitive stomach but does well with kibble with wet food or chicken on it. He is long and lanky and we think he is either a Dutch and German Shepherd mix or all Dutch Shepherd. He has a pretty brindle coat.
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.
