Coastal German Shepherd Rescue

Mitch has been adopted! 08-14-2023

Male German Shepherd Dog about 1-2 years old. Good with kids. Gets along with other dogs.

Mitch is a large "liver colored" GSD approximately 1-2 years old. A liver shepherd is basically a red-headed shepherd that does not have black pigment because of a recessive gene.

Mitch was hit by a car and underwent surgery for a broken left hip. He recuperated in a foster home and now is totally healed. Mitch was also "cryptorchid" - one of his testes did not drop, and had a second surgery including getting his double dew claws removed from his back legs. Mitch also had a terrible skin infection that was also treated by Coastal's vets.

Mitch is tolerant with other dogs. He is with two female dog in his foster home. He will play with one of the dogs but prefers to play ball and follow his foster dad around the yard. He is good with new dogs, walks well on a leash, and knows basic commands. He is good when new people come to the home.

Mitch is food and toy aggressive and that means nobody touch his food bowl until he is done. He will sometimes let you take his toys and play with him but not always. It is better to let him have them.

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.
