Coastal German Shepherd Rescue

Denali is available ( Updated 04-18-2024 )

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

Denali came to Coastal GSR along with his buddy Biscuit. Both were at a shelter together. The shelter said they weren't bonded but they are each other's best friend and favorite playmate. They live in the same foster home where there are other dogs - large and small - and they do well with all of them.

Denali is house broken and crate trained. The crate isn't his favorite place but once inside, he is able to relax and be comfortable. His preferred place to be is with his foster mom and dad being petted and loved.

Denali walks well on a leash with a prong collar. He is energetic and strong. While walking, he will shy away from strangers and wants to go about his business without meeting new people and dogs.

While Denali was slightly more confident than his companion Biscuit when he first came to Coastal, it is apparent that he was mistreated and not socialized as a puppy. He has learned to trust his fosters and is happy and playful after being in their home for several months. He not only plays with Biscuit but will engage in play with the other larger dogs as well.

Denali is not going to be a dog who rushes up to you and chooses you to be his owner. It will be up to you to meet and chose Denali. Once you decide that he is the one, you will need to be patient and work with him so he gains your trust. If you do that, and show hims lots of love, you will end up with a very loyal and loving dog.

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.
