Coastal German Shepherd Rescue

Aster has been adopted! 05-26-2023

Male German Shepherd Dog /Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler mix about 4-6 months old. Gets along with other dogs.

Aster is one of 11 puppies born to mom Grace. He is one of our "F litter" puppies; F meaning flowers, forests and fun. A DNA test done on one of Aster's littermates showed that the puppies are ~50% Australian cattle dog, ~30% German Shepherd, and ~20% Dutch Shepherd. Mom appears to be a GSD and Dutch Shepherd.

Grace, the litter's mom, was found wandering in the high desert. A local contacted Coastal German Shepherd Rescue and we rescued her. She delivered her babies in a foster home where she and the puppies have been receiving the best of care.

Four month old Aster received all three of his puppy vaccinations and a Bordetella vaccine. He is also microchipped. Aster is ready to find his forever home and fly away from foster care. He is very playful and loves to be outside. He likes toys and chasing balls. He will be a good sized dog - possibly 65-70 pounds. Aster would do well with a family that is able to spend some time with him or has another good natured dog that will play with him.

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.
