This handsome boy, around 5-7 years old, faced a catastrophic limb injury prior to landing with us. He was likely hit by a car, but we can’t say for certain. What we know for certain is that we couldn't say no and knew we had to help him!Sweet Lancer was picked up as a stray by Animal Control. He was non weight bearing on his front left leg and seemed to be in a lot of pain. The shelter had an X-ray done to check out the leg. The radiographs showed multiple fractures of the Ulna and of the Radius. The shelter sent an email out saying that this dog had to be rescued by 4pm. At first glance, we didn't think we could take on yet another complicated medical case, but we also couldn't stand the thought of Lancer being euthanized and we sent a volunteer transporter out to pick him up. Lancer went straight to our vet where his X-rays were evaluated and it was decided that the best outcome for him would be amputation, as his fractures were displaced and pretty old. (His leg had been left broken and mangled for some time.) We can't imagine how painful this was for him, but you’d never know it based on his personality. 💙Lancer fully recovered from his surgery, can get up and down stairs, gets along with large and small dogs, and enjoys zoomies and playful dogs more than just about anything. This cutie is shy and timid around new people (especially men) at first, but once you build trust he'll follow you to the ends of the earth (to ask for belly rubs). He can be more scared of children, although he has lived with them and currently lives with teenagers in his foster home, but doesn’t interact with them (by choice). When they get too rambunctious, he removes himself. Lancer is a gentle soul who can’t wait to find his forever family.

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.May 27, 2024, 5:38 am

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.

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

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!

More about this rescue

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.
