Posted Breed: German Shepherd Dog / Mixed (medium coat). This is a year of hope and promise for Kelly. For all of her adult life, Kelly and her human mom lived together but then her human mom became ill and could no longer care for her. Now that she's with Rescue, Kelly knows that her world is now right side up! While she waits for her new forever home, she's been fortunate to be invited to stay in a foster home. Here's what her foster mom has to say about her. Kelly certainly needs daily walks but she also would be a perfect jogging, running, or biking companion. She is high energy when exercising but once she is inside the house, she is calm. She maintains her calm and sweet nature with someone she can count on to teach her limits and boundaries. Kelly is a smart girl who has had some formal obedience training. In fact, because she is very smart and eager to please, she'd love to continue formal obedience training and participate in some doggie sports. In her foster home, Kelly is living with a female German Shepherd, two large males, and an eight pound poodle. When she is out and about on walks, she is fine when other dogs pass by. She's house broken and crate trained. Her foster mom says that she has adapted quickly to her new foster home. Kelly can't wait to meet you! By the way, Kelly wants you to know that she's a fit and trim girl of about 45 pounds. Like lots of girls, she thinks the photos make her look much bigger than she is!

If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Posted Breed: German Shepherd Dog (long coat). Please contact Adoption (coastalgsrsd@gmail.com) for more information about this pet. Sometimes things happen in life that can have an impact on many living creatures. Topaz's story is on that list. She was adopted from Rescue in the fall of 2010 and had a good life. Then there was a medical crisis in the family that ultimately led to no alternative for her human mom but to return Topaz to us. Everyone is sad and we've promised Topaz that we'll work very hard to find her a new family as soon as possible. One thing about Topaz is certain. She absolutely loves to play ball. In fact, she loves to go to dog parks as well but when she's at the park, she's more interested in her ball than she is the other dogs. Go figure! Speaking of other animals, absolutely no cats in Topaz' new home. She can be a bit shy around people when she meets them for the first time but once she gets to know you, she's very accepting. Crowds of people can make her a bit nervous as well. Topaz wants to remind everyone that it isn't necessary to be a social butterfly so if that's okay with you, it's okay with her. By the way, when Topaz arrived at Rescue recently, one of our volunteers described her as friendly and pleasant, behaving just like any other proud German Shepherd Dog. Can you help her find a new forever home? If the answer is yes, she'll love you and stick by you forever. Please visithttp://www.coastalgsrsd.org/to learn more about our dogs.

      Location: San Diego, CA
      Posted Breed: German Shepherd Dog / Cocker Spaniel / Mixed (medium coat). The name Misa is Japanese for "blooming flower". What an appropriate name for this little girl who came to Rescue when she was about eight weeks of age after being picked up as a stray. She's been blooming and growing ever since she arrived! She's certainly a mixed breed. Maybe some German Shepherd Dog?? Maybe come Cocker Spaniel?? Who knows! Misa is fortunate to be living in a foster home so we have a first hand report from her foster mom. There are dogs of all sizes in her foster home and she gets along well with all of them. As for the resident cats, Misa just ignores them. There may be many dogs but Misa hasn't demonstrated any food or toy aggression. In fact, her favorite toy will be whatever the pack has decided is their favorite of the day. Misa isn't picky! She loves to play but is respectfully submissive and knows when she has crossed the line and needs to correct her behavior. She is crate trained. Her foster mom describes her as "a very loving little pup who likes to snuggle on the couch". Misa is on the small side, maybe twenty to thirty pounds, and would do best in a home without small children. Are you ready for a flower in your life? Check out Misa!

It's too bad that I don’t live in England because I'm sure I would have a family to love and protect and a life style that is befitting my name! I joined Rescue almost two years ago and because of my good looks, I was quickly adopted. Unfortunately, the day after I was adopted, my family decided to show me off at this big party with dogs and kids and lots of people. There was so much going on. So many people, so much noise, so much commotion. I was absolutely overwhelmed! When I am overwhelmed, I am not always on my best behavior. I'm sorry but I just can't help it. A few weeks later a nice volunteer took me to her home where I met and got along with other dogs and her daughter. But again there were so many parties and all these “friends” kept coming over the house. Yes, I was overwhelmed. And I thought I had to protect my human mom from all those people who made all that noise. The next thing I know, I was back in the kennel. Again. I am not a puppy. I am not looking for a wild and crazy home! I am an adult dog and I am looking for a nice, quiet family who will give me a chance to be the good dog that I know I can be. I am obedient and quite self confident. I am house broken and I LOVE riding in the car with my humans. You can ask any volunteer or dog in the kennel and they will tell you that I am a very nice dog. All I need is an established family where the humans will respect my space and give me guidance, direction, and mentoring. I am lucky to be invited to the Coastal swim party almost every Friday. I don’t enjoy swimming as much as some of the other dogs but I do enjoy the bone munching session. I was told that I am very pleasant company to both dogs and humans when we are there. So, please check me out! I might not be a duke in British royalty but I am handsome, affectionate, and loyal. Please visit http://www.coastalgsrsd.org/ to learn more about our dogs.

The stitches in her eyes have been removed and she definitely is seeing again. She'll have to use the cone for two more weeks but then our diabetic girl will be ready to attend adoption events and look for her forever home. Many thanks to everyone who donated to her medical fund. Your help and support of Rescue made Minnie's surgery possible.

Please contact Adoption (coastalgsrsd@gmail.com) for more information about this pet.Artemis lost his home when his owner passed away.Artemis joined Rescue many months ago after his human died of cancer and the wife could no longer care for him. He's been living in a foster home so we'd like to tell you about him. In his foster home, there are other dogs and he gets along with everyone. He wants to play and he can be a bit loud, rowdy, and pushy. Of course, in their own way, the other dogs says 'No' and Artemis, in his own way, talks back. Maybe it is how an adolescent dog says, 'Make me!' There are cats in his foster home and he's okay with them. He wants to chase and play but he'll back off when a cat stands up to him. Artemis is good with his basic commands but he does need continuous training and reminders of good doggie manners. He needs a firm but gentle hand and will respond to verbal corrections. He will talk back at times though so the phrase, 'Make me!' does happen from time to time. Artemis will bark at people when they come in the door (unless he is in his crate in which case he'll be quiet). In fact, he does well in a hard crate and his foster mom says he is improving greatly with the wire crate. Did we tell you that he loves Nylabones?? Artemis has epilepsy and experiences grand mal seizures. He currently takes Phenobarbital and other medications may be added as he continues treatment. Treatment does not cure the condition but is aimed to decrease the frequency, severity and duration of the seizures. Artemis may be called a 'special needs' dog but if you are the right family to welcome him into your life, you should know that his foster mom describes him as 'a big love'. Because he has spent time in our kennels as well as the foster home, we should tell you that Artemis has a fan base. One of his weekly dog walkers is a young woman who is currently deployed to serve our country. She regularly sends messages, asking about Artemis, and she is counting the days until her return so she can visit and hug him! Please visit http://www.coastalgsrsd.org/ to learn more about our dogs.

      Posted Breed: German Shepherd Dog (medium coat). Please contact Adoption (coastalgsrsd@gmail.com) for more information about this pet.It is very difficult to know what to do and how to act when you suddenly find yourself in a kennel. There are lots of other dogs whom you don't know, the routine is different from what you were accustomed to, there are lots of people involved in your care, and you don't why you ended up living behind bars. Jersey is trying very hard to adjust to the new routine so she can feel relaxed and safe but it may take a while. Loud noises are especially scary. She's a bit reluctant to be touched, especially in her neck area or on her belly. But after about twenty minutes of spending time with you, she can roll belly up and have fun. Likewise, one of our volunteers brushed her for fifteen or more minutes and Jersey was fine. Suddenly, however, she got up and didn't want the brush anywhere near her. After sitting for a while, she was again happy to be brushed. Jersey is very cute and will make a beautiful dog. Self confidence and trust in the rest of the world - plus receiving lots of love - will go a long way to make Jersey's world a better world for her. At this point, we think she should be in a home without children. We don't know how he would be if there were another dog in the family. June 9, 2012: It's time to tell you where our Jersey Girl spent the most recent Friday afternoon. She was at The Total Dog in Oceanside. Actually her story is part of a longer story which we call the 'tale of two tails'. Jersey lost a large portion of her tail because of what we call “happy tail”. That's when the tail repeatedly hits concrete or stucco. The tip breaks open and it is very difficult to heal. Jersey may not have the big, fluffy tail of most German Shepherd Dogs but she still showed everyone she could swim. Actually, her pool time started off with an unplanned splash as Coach Carol and Jersey literally flew off the deck and through the air and into the water. Jersey had been told by many dogs that swimming was great fun so this came as a big surprise. But after a while, she settled down and enjoyed herself. She’s asked to come back next week. Of course, the wonderful marrow bone that was waiting for her after her swim session was really nice! Please visithttp://www.coastalgsrsd.org/to learn more about our dogs.

      Posted Breed: German Shepherd Dog / Collie / Mixed (long coat). Please contact Adoption (coastalgsrsd@gmail.com) for more information about this pet. Here’s an update on Rainier. He currently is taking four medications for his pemphigus, the auto-immune disease. The medications have made a major difference in Rainier’s health. The tip of his nose is still a little raw, but certainly without blood. Soaking his kibble longer makes his food very soft which has given the inside of his mouth time to heal. He still bumps into things, but he is learning to keep his nose pointed down so that he bumps his forehead and not his nose. It hasn’t been easy dealing with his issues, but he always seems to be smiling and when he wags that huge fluffy tail your heart just melts. So, how can I resist? He’s always in a good mood. Like all of my shepherds, Rainier likes to follow me around the yard. This is good exercise for him and he certainly needs that. The prednisone has made weight loss difficult. Any new exercise for the big fluffy dog is welcome! Well, maybe. His latest thing is chasing the peacocks. I had heard that he used to chase chickens, but because he is blind, I wasn’t very concerned about my birds. The first time Rainier was distracted by the peacocks I stopped dead in my tracks. How awful it would be if he actually caught a peacock or one of the chicks! But after watching Rainier on several occasions, it seems unlikely that he’ll ever catch one. The birds cluck, cluck, cluck when frightened as warning to the rest of the flock. Apparently Rainier focuses on that sound because I see him following the birds, weaving between vehicles and around the walls without bumping into anything. The peacocks look like roadrunners as they trot ahead of the fluffy dog. When Rainier gets too close, the birds fly up and away. They don’t fly far, only about twenty feet, but definitely out of reach. Rainier stops and turns his head. When he hears the clucking of another bird, his tail flies up as if a flag at a NASCAR Race and he trots off after the new sound. Around and around the driveway they go until Rainier becomes winded. Then he has to come into the house to rest and catch his breath. That old adage about exercise is true for Rainier: he does it longer and with more enthusiasm when it’s fun.
