Halle is available ( Updated 11-29-2022 )
Halle was left tied outside the Redlands Animal Shelter. She was visibly pregnant, did not have a microchip, and there was no information left with her. Coastal GSR was able to find a foster, who was experienced with pregnant moms and newborn puppies, and Halle whelped on September 24, 2022.
Halle gave birth to 12 gorgeous puppies: 7 boys and 5 girls. Six of the pups are traditional black and tan and six are "Merle," which is a combination of white, black, gray, and tan. Now that she has taken care of her pups, they are weaned and they are ready to fly, it is Halle's turn to find her place in the world!
This gorgeous black and tan beauty is estimated to be 1-2 years old. She has some training and will be a good fit in a home that has a strong "pack leader" mentality. Halle sits, gives left and right paw on command, is solidly leash trained, knows off, leave it and, however reluctantly, does know heel. She is easily corrected with an authoritative command, but not with a soft or suggestive command. Halle is sensitive to your disapproval once bonded to you and, at 60 pounds, is a wonderful representative of the breed.
Her yearning to bond to her people is strong and she will follow you endlessly. Halle assimilated into the foster's home and dog pack easily but, once she bonded with the foster, became possessive. Slight corrections resulted in her adjusting well- she will require the strong and steady guidance of her person to show her the way in her adoptive home.
Halle is smart (she can even open levered door handles) and prefers to be inside the house rather than in the yard. She can jump a 4 foot fence so you would need a secure fence and gate and no planters or tables up again the fence where she could hop, skip, or jump over.
Halle is a gorgeous, smart, German Shepherd Dog who deserves to have people who will love her and a home where she can be happy. Do you have that home?
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.
