My story

Fargo IS AVAILALBE (updated 08-01-2022).

To meet any of our dogs you must first complete our online adoption application on our website. For more information and the adoption application for Fargo, please visit our website below

http://www.coastalgsr.org/dog_profile.php?ID=21785&name=Fargo

Fargo is a true working dog who is motivated by his stomach and toys. He's ridiculously smart and obedience trained, but wasn't socialized prior to his rescue. He's spent the last five years training (can you believe we just hit his 5 year anniversary with the rescue?) and now just needs someone who will help him transition what he's learned into becoming part of a family.We rescued Fargo from the OC Shelter and he's proven to be a smarty pants with a nose that never stops. He looks to have had no structure in his previous home and will do best with someone who has large breed experience (working dog experience a plus!) and understands dogs who are bot good with strangers. He's a big puppy, can be mouthy, and can be fearfull and reactive around fast moving people whom he doesn't already know, so a low traffic home with no children is recommended. He is, however, super food motivated and follows direction like a well oiled machine once he’s bonded with you, so he just needs to find someone who will work with him and allow him to grow into a perfectly balanced boy. Fargo loves his toys, his walks, is obedience trained, and a super quick study. He knows sit, down, stay, come, heel, swing, place, back, drop it, slip, hupf, nein, and then some. This handsome boy is ready to move into a home of his own!

The minimum adoption donation for adults is $375 and the adoption donation for puppies is $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.

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.

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.
