Coastal German Shepherd Rescue

Calvin has been adopted! 08-07-2021

Male German Shepherd Dog about 1-2 years old. Gets along with other dogs.

Calvin is a young neutered male GSD about a year and a half old. He is currently living in a kennel. He has a nice temperament and is curious about other dogs. He doesn't show any aggression towards other dogs, so far just curiosity. He would be jumpy on a leash during his walks when we first got him but he has eventually calmed down and now enjoys them.

We aren't sure how he would be around young children but older children should be fine. Calvin is a quick learner and with a little training and socialization, will make a great companion.

We recommend a home with another dog - male or female but, in the kennel, Calvin prefers to hang with male dogs. A companion dog will help him settle in and gain more confidence in his new surroundings.

He doesn't really like car rides and his foster volunteer has been taking him in his van, in a crate, to help him get his confidence in a car. We think he was probably "dumped" out of a car in the neighborhood where he was found lost and wandering.

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.
