Coastal German Shepherd Rescue

Zoey is available ( Updated 11-30-2021 )

Female German Shepherd Dog about 6-9 years old. Good with kids. OK with cats. Gets along with other dogs.

Zoey came into the shelter system as a puppy, was adopted, then picked up as a stray 8 years later but the registered owners did not come for her. She was made available again and adopted for a second time in July. Towards the end of October, she was returned to the shelter by her new adopters (who were moving) and Zoey was made available for adoption yet again. The problem now is space: there are so many great dogs entering the shelter system, it’s not long before they become urgent.

Zoey was that dog. She’d run out of time. Some people can’t get past her age, as she’s 8.5 years old, but that’s a fantastic age! She’s not a wild stallion but is plenty active, loves walks, and knows basic obedience. She grew up with cats and small dogs and is good with most large dogs (she wasn’t raised around them, but she’s been introduced to some and done fine). Zoey might not be a puppy anymore, but whoever doesn’t adopt her is going to miss out on an amazing dog as well as years and years of unconditional love and the best friend they could’ve had. 💙

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.
