Coastal German Shepherd Rescue

Esme has been adopted! 01-31-2024

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

Esme, aka Esmeralda, is an 18 month old, petite German Shepherd. Apparently a family got her from an ad and wanted to turn her into an Emotional Support Dog. Esme had an old injury which did something to her rear legs. When the family noticed that there was an issue with her rear legs, they turned her into a shelter. The shelter staff were impressed by Esme and asked the "Save Bakersfield Dogs" group to help her. Esme had a FHO, went to a foster home to recuperate, and has completely healed.

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.
