Abby's Story...
Little Miss Abby found her way to the Coronado Animal Care Facility after frolicking along the streets all on her own.

This girl is full of energy and right now is just all "puppy". Abby is as smart as a whip and in just a short week in her foster home with clicker training, she has progressed from knowing "sit" to also knowing how to play fetch with the commands "come" and "drop" and is also learning how to "stay". She is currently teething and loves playing tug with a rope or chewing on a puppy sized rawhide. She also likes digging in the sand at the dog beach. Abby rides well in a car and even kept up during a three mile hike.

She is incredibly trainable and is quickly learning her manners while walking on a leash and is already crate trained. She is also becoming house trained as she grows accustomed to her foster home.

Abby has a very curious spirit but doesn't bark at loud noises – the low flying planes and traffic don’t phase her a bit. She is very sweet with everyone, young and old and in between! She is polite with other dogs and is learning to not bark back at dogs that bark at her.

She is very strong willed and would do best in an active home with a family that can devote time to her. She would also benefit from a mature canine companion who can “show her the ropes” and a consistent lifestyle that could keep her mentally stimulated.

If you need a canine pal to add some energy and new joy to your life, Abby is your girl. Take the time to meet her soon!

You can arrange to meet Abby by calling Karen, a dog adoption counselor at 619-437-0220.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Abby, a Coronado German Shepherd Dog/Belgian Malinois puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a German Shepherd Dog/Belgian Malinois for sale in Coronado, or seeking a German Shepherd Dog/Belgian Malinois puppy from a breeder in Coronado.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Coronado already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Coronado breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even German Shepherd Dog/Belgian Malinois breeders who help with German Shepherd Dog/Belgian Malinois rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Coronado paves the way for another one to be saved.
