Lana was only 3 or 4 months old when she was found as a skinny feral puppy surviving all alone on a hiking trail. She was captured and taken to the animal shelter, completely terrified and untrusting of humans and other dogs. A loud scary animal shelter is no place for a scared puppy, so Coastal rescued her and placed her into a foster home. Lana is not the typical, easy puppy to add to a household. It was apparent that Lana lacked human contact as she was extremely fearful of people; she was practically wild. Lana has gone through several months of rehabilitation to include: consistent human interaction in her foster home, several months at a live-in training facility, and group dog obedience training classes once she returned back to her foster home. Lana is building her confidence day by day learning that humans want to help her.Lana’s potential adopter must be patient and committed to continuing this process. When meeting new people, she is timid and reluctant to let new people approach and touch her. When she goes to her new home, she will be scared and take time to warm up and come out of her shell. An adopter who puts time into training and familiarizing Lana with her new home and family will be rewarded with her a sweet, silly, snuggly personality once she learns to trust you! A home without young children is best suited for Lana. Because of her timidness and caution with people, she is not a fan of unpredictable, fast moving individuals and hands reaching toward her. An all adult household or one with mature teenagers would be best. Lana quickly learned to LOVE other dogs, however, her puppy play energy can be overwhelming to other dogs who don’t want to play as much as she does, and with small dogs, because she doesn’t realize she is bigger than them. If adopted into a home with another dog, she would do best with one that is a similar size and isn’t fazed by her playfulness. Although she loves dogs, the down side is that she chooses their companionship over people. If adopted into a home with another dog, her adopters must make time daily to do bonding and training exercises with her. Training exercises are key to gaining her trust, without this, she reverts to avoidance with people and will only connect to dogs. Besides her timidness with people, Lana is a great pup in other ways. She is housebroken, loves her crate, enjoys car rides, and likes to go on outings. Her foster family takes her to coffee shops, out to lunch, basically anywhere and everywhere to continue her socialization and bonding. She would be a great companion to someone who likes having their dog as their co-pilot. Lana has come a long way since being rescued, and, with a patient loving adopter, this gorgeous girl will continue to thrive.The requested adoption donation for Lana is $500.

The minimum adoption donation for adults is $300 and the adoption donation for puppies is $400 - $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. 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.

About Coastal German Shepherd Rescue Inland Empire

About Our Rescue Group...

Coastal German Shepherd Rescue of Southern California is a non-profit 501(c)3 public charity dedicated to finding loving homes for abandoned German Shepherds. Your tax deductible donations go to support these very deserving animals. Coastal was formed to serve communities in the counties of San Diego, Orange, Los Angeles and the Inland Empire.

Coastal is dedicated to providing new beginnings for homeless German Shepherds who have been abandoned, neglected, abused, relinquished by their owners or just left at local shelters to await an uncertain future.

We are committed to finding loving permanent homes for the Orphaned dogs in our care. Coastal is an all volunteer, no-kill, non profit organization.

Our mission is to educate the public about German Shepherds, their lifespan, personality, activity level, along with overall responsible dog ownership. We also raise awareness of over population of animals through education, training, spaying and neutering. We work very hard to match each dog with the adoptive families.

Make a donation to the Saving Gideon Fund!

In Gideon's honor, we would like to start a Saving Gideon Fund. This fund will be for seriously injured dogs who need immediate medical care. Often times the decision to save a life depends upon how much money is in our bank account. It's very sad, but unfortunately the truth! We would like to create this fund so that the next time we are asked to save a severely injured dog we can say YES!

Please help us to create this fund in Gideon's honor!
This fund will allow us to save more injured German Shepherds like him.
