Oso has been adopted! 03-15-2022
Oso was found wandering in Riverside County and was taken in by a woman who had a few dogs of her own. She has five dogs of various sizes and ages and Oso got along with all of them.
Coastal German Shepherd Rescue moved Oso to Orange County and agreed to find him his forever home. His foster family has a senior GSD, a young GSD mix, and a cat. Oso and the young dog can play for hours. Oso has a great temperament and also gets along with people. He is very friendly.
Oso does not appear to be a purebred German Shepherd and may have some Malamute or other large breed in him. He has large paws and thick legs. His face is a little rounder than a GSD.
Oso is crate trained and house broken. He loves to play with his younger canine foster brother and is respectful of his older canine foster brother. He still has some puppy mannerisms but he listens, and so far, has been very trainable. He is also living with a cat that does not like Oso living in his house. If you have a dog-savvy cat, Oso may fit in without any issues. He has not been aggressive towards the cat.
Oso is a 5 month old happy pup that would fit into most homes, including those with school age children. How anyone let this wonderful boy escape is beyond belief! He is a gem!
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.
