Coastal German Shepherd Rescue

Buddy is available ( Updated 11-25-2022 )

Male German Shepherd Dog about 1-2 years old. Gets along with other dogs. Not for homes with kids.

Buddy was picked up as a stray by animal control in central California. We have a feeling he came from a home that, only a couple of weeks later, had 28 dogs confiscated from the property. He, Jet, and Lily all look to be related and have the same temperament and conformation. Buddy is great with dogs, but needs more work socializing with people. (When you have 28 dogs in your home, you don't tend to have visitors, so he's probably only ever known one person prior to landing at the shelter.)

Around 2 years old, Buddy is now great with the volunteers he knows, but can be scared meeting new people. The more we socialize him, the better he does, he's easy on a leash, knows basic commands, and adores a belly rub. We know the right person is going to meet him, fall in love, make him part of the family, and help him through the changes until he's a confident boy.

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.
