Coastal German Shepherd Rescue

Leo has been adopted! 04-04-2021

Male Belgian Shepherd Malinois about 1-2 years old. Gets along with other dogs.

We did it again. We rescued another Malinois. 🤣

Leo was purchased as a puppy and then rehomed when he was around 9-10 months old. These are working dogs and 90% of them do not make good family pets- they need much more engagement and exercise than a typical family has the time to provide. His second owner purchased him to be a service dog and that was not a life for which Leo is suited. When alone, he would bark for hours and the second owner was going to lose his living situation, so we offered to help.

Leo’s now 13 months old, energetic as all get out, super smart, has more drive than your typical pet, and needs a home with Malinois experience. Since coming to the rescue, he's been neutered, we've gotten to know him, and can't wait for him to find a family who will appreciate all of his energy. 💙

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.
