Coastal German Shepherd Rescue

Soleil has been adopted! 02-15-2024

Female German Shepherd Dog about 4-6 months old. Gets along with other dogs.

Sweet Soleil was found in a dump site in Bakersfield. Her story: a lady was giving away 9 puppies on a neighborhood app. A week later puppies were found in different areas of Bakersfield that resembled these puppies. Three were found in a trash dumping site and were euthanized after contracting Parvo at the shelter. Two pups were saved in a different area of the city. Apparently Soleil was also at the dump site but was so fearful of people she ran off every time someone tried to catch her. Finally Soleil decided she needed help and went up to one of the Bakersfield volunteers. Now she is in a foster home and Coastal GSR will make sure this sweet little girl goes to the best home possible and will be loved like she should be.

Soleil is super sweet, playful, and is dog friendly. She had her basic vaccinations and tested negative for Parvo. Soleil is a GSD mix and we are not sure what she is mixed with. She is potty trained and uses the doggy door on her own to go out.

She knows how to sit on command and sits before eating food. She learns quickly. Soleil is ball and treat motivated. She is not aggressive in any way. Soleil is very responsive to verbal commands and is doing remarkably well with playing and walking outside. She does great in the car; usually she just goes to sleep.

She plays at the park with Molly, the fosters' dog, and other dogs too. She still has some puppy nervousness and can be fearful of the outside and cars. But she is slowly learning it’s ok to be outside. She is very very sweet and loves people. Every day she is walking better on a leash and is such a happy girl.

Soleil is sleeping in a crate. She whines for a couple of minutes when placed in the crate but sleeps great; she responds to verbal shushes. Sleeps up to 7 hours far without problems, no accidents in the crate. She does snore, lol.

She loves to cuddle. Soleil pays attention to her older foster sister for clues about how to behave so an older dog in the family will be helpful.

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.
