Yes, he's a senior. He's a mix and his ears don't stand up. His muzzle is white and his teeth aren't. His leg was broken- before his rescue- and the bones healed incorrectly while he was living on the streets, which makes his stride a little funky. His name is Apollo and he's the most amazing, loving, affectionate boy you haven't yet adopted!He's, hands down, the sweetest dog on the planet. He's a super happy boy who adores people and walks. He's soaking up every minute of life and making the most of it. He gets a kick out of toys. He gets to pick out different toys, every day, from the bin. Sometimes it takes him 5 seconds to decide and sometimes it takes 5 minutes. Picking a toy is serious business. His new favorite has been a plastic set of McDonald's fries. He's not a health nut. He is beautiful, inside and out, and would make you the happiest person alive if you adopted him. Apollo is a spunky, lovable, sweet, older guy. He loves getting attention from his people and will lay by your side if you're doling out the affection. Apollo is dominant and gets along best with submissive female dogs. He loves his walks and going for a romp around the backyard, playing with his toys and rolling around on the grass. He bonds quickly with his handler, is potty trained, good in the house, loves a car ride and would be the happiest dog on the planet if you made him part of your family.

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 Downey

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.

Our Adoption Process...

All prospective adoptive families must complete an on line application followed by a telephone interview and then receive a home visit before a German Shepherd is placed in their forever home.

Our adoption donation is $300 for Adults and $400 - $500 for Puppies. 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 100% tax deductible.

Prior to placement, all dogs will be spayed or neutered, receive current vaccinations, and are usually microchipped. If not, arrangements will be made on an individual basis. Special consideration may be given to those willing to adopt older dogs or dogs with physical problems.

Donations are tax deductible and also help other dogs in need!
