Coastal German Shepherd Rescue

Charly is available ( Updated 06-24-2021 )

Female German Shepherd Dog about 10-12 months old. Good with kids. Gets along with other dogs.

At not even a year old, Charly was picked up as a stray and landed at the county shelter. She was so terrified, shaking from head to toe so much so that her body physically moved as if she were in a wind tunnel, she was labeled rescue only. We rescued her and sent her straight to our vet, because we wanted to make sure she didn't have any medical issues that were causing her shaking. After multiple exams and even more testing, it seemed that her behavior was all due to fear. As she started to get more comfortable with the hospital staff, they saw her sweet and soft nature come out more and more.

Charly left the hospital for a foster placement and has thrived in a home environment. Around 50 pounds, she adores children and has two besties with whom she's obsessed. She's also got a canine companion in her foster home and gets along well with him, but would prefer a less playful dog who likes to join her in couch potato activities more than wrestle. Charly is crate trained (the crate is her princess hideaway and one of her favorite places), potty trained, and good in the house. She is still very timid with and scared of strangers, but warms up to new people as she learns to trust them. What used to take a week now takes a couple of days and we have no doubt that with the right family she will thrive and get better and better!

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.
