I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, not good with kids, good with dogs, and not good with cats.
Teddy is a very large guy. He is probably close to 100 lbs. We placed him as a puppy and unfortunately, he was able to get away with lots of bad behavior and, like most dogs with a Shepherd DNA, took over the house as he grew older & bigger.Teddy's family was not willing to do further training so we took him back. He is a sweet boy but he definitely needs someone who can set boundaries for him. He loves his toys to a fault so we don't want to place him in a home with toddlers. He'll be fine with pre teen, teenagers and will benefit from a family that has big dog experience.Teddy just wants to have fun - he is really gorgeous, doesn't have a mean bone in his body but he was allowed, in his first home, to run the place so sometimes he thinks he's the head of the household. He will be a great addition to an active, strong leadership home.
Rescue Group Info...
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.
We hold weekly adoption events at Petsmart in Aliso Viejo, CA. Our event hours on Saturdays are from 11:00-3:00 p.m. unless otherwise noted.

Come out and meet the dogs!
If you would like to meet a dog outside of our event hours, please contact the counselor referenced for that dog.
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!
