Sonja has been adopted! 10-30-2022
Sonja and her brother Flash are part of an 8 puppy litter born to a mom rescued from a wilderness area in Stockton, California. They were born on August 19th in the rescuer's home.
The mom - Nala - is a full German Shepherd. We don't know what the father was but was most likely another GSD or a similar breed large dog. Nala followed her rescuer as she was hiking and eventually trusted her enough to go home with her. Nala gave birth to the puppies about a month later.
Flash and Sonja moved to a foster home with three large German Shepherd dogs. They fit right in and made themselves at home. Sonja is the bolder of the two puppies and will try to discipline Flash and the three older dogs if she thinks they are not obeying her rules. Sonja and Flash sleep in a puppy pen and are one step away from being house trained. Not bad for 9 week old puppies.
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.
