Coastal German Shepherd Rescue

Tyson has been adopted! 09-05-2022

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

Tyson was left in a shelter night drop box. He was severely emaciated: he weighed 29 pounds when he should've been almost double that! He was scared, but super sweet, and needed a rescue to save him and take him to the hospital to find out why he was so, so, skinny. We rescued him and sent him to our vet, where it was discovered that he had a foreign body in his intestines. He had surgery, then needed to move to the ER so that he could have 24-hour supportive care, but was released two days later and continued his recovery in a foster home.

Now, a few months later, his vet is happy with his weight gain and progress. He's grown since his rescue, continues to put on weight, and was given a clean bill of health.

Tyson is a puppy in every way. He's rambunctious, curious, playful, and so much fun! He lives in a foster home with two children and two dogs, all of whom he adores. We'd guess he's about 9-10 months old now, but we have no way to know for certain.

Tyson gets along with large and small dogs, but does need a proper introduction and can sometimes be reactive to new dogs, but gets over it in seconds and will allow bossy small dogs to run the show. He loves kids and can sometimes be found at baseball games where he thinks it's heaven to be surrounded by kids who want to pet him. If you've been contemplating adopting a puppy, but don't want to go through the potty training bit, this handsome boy is your guy. He's potty trained, crate trained (he likes to put himself in his crate at night, even if the door stays open), easy on a leash, will probably top out at 75-85 pounds, and would do best in a home with other playful dogs.

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.
