Tucker Update - You Did It!

Tucker Update - You Did It!

(June, 2023) Three months ago we sent out a plea to help Tucker. He had a condition that required surgery. At 18 months old, he had lived most of his life trying to skip so that he didn't have to put weight on his right leg. His life was like walking on a piece of glass. We promised him that we would get him help. We reached out to you for help, and you stepped up. Donations immediately started coming in, and within days, Tucker's surgery was scheduled. Thanks to you, he had the best surgical team and the best medical care. Time seems to have gone by so quickly, although Tucker would probably disagree. He just had his 90-day checkup, and he is finally ready for his forever home, with a couple of restrictions, but he is ready to go home. We couldn't let him go home without letting you know how much your help has meant. Tucker is one of the wonders of the rescue. He is proof of not only how our angels help with the funds they donate for surgery, but the prayers, thoughts, lighting of candles, and all manner of things they send our way, the things that result in success stories like Tucker's. Tucker began his healing with just short walks. He is now ready to run and play. He can't do crazy running like he wants to do, but he can show off his new gallop. It is amazing to see how this puppy has changed. Tucker 2.0 has the personality of a young puppy even though he is an older puppy. We said in his last update that the one word we would use to describe him is "Fun". That hasn't changed him. There are many other words to describe him, but Fun will always be one. He has a way of putting a smile on your face, from the little hop that he does whenever he runs after his ball to the way he throws his ball to you to throw it back to him, the way he looks you in the eyes when he wants to engage you and then does his cute puppy bow. Of course, he is working on his training. He has a habit of jumping that we are working on by teaching him to sit. Tucker has his own way of doing things sometimes, though. Give the command, and he looks to the side like the little boy looking for something he would rather be doing before deciding that he will listen. We are working also on his walks also. Tucker 2.0 has finally realized how strong he is. The joke with him when he first began his walks after surgery were that he walks very well on the leash. It's the person on the other end holding the leash that has trouble walking, sometimes even staying on two feet. But, yes, he is getting better at that too. And Tucker has been given the green light to play with other dogs. His newest best friend, Addison, keeps him company. There is almost nothing that brightens Tucker's day than another dog. He loves them all. He loves to run around and play bow. He loves it even more if they will run around with him, but if they don’t want to, he will do the running around and make it fun for everyone. Tucker's best home would be a home with another dog, one that he can run around and play with. No small ones, though. He has loved every dog he has met, but he wants to play with the small dogs like a toy. There are so many things we can say about Tucker. Just reach out to us and let us know if you think you may be his perfect forever. Email us at, info@coastalk9gsr.org There are no words to express just how much your help has meant to Tucker and to us, but we have to begin with THANK YOU, and we will let Tucker show you what you have done for him in his video. To see the difference that your help has made in his life is nothing short of a miracle. Thank you.

Cold Hard Truth

For many of the German Shepherd Dogs in the shelters, tonight will be their last sunset, if they can find enough comfort to sleep, it will be their last sleep, and when they wake up to a new sunrise, it too will be their last.😞 . Those who are fortunate will find hope, and that hope begins with a second chance, and that second chance begins with Coastal K9 German Shepherd Rescue. . Today we are running into a new challenge in being able to save those German Shepherds who are desperately waiting for us. The Shelters aren't able to perform spaying and neutering as they have in the past. . The veterinarians who partnered with us in the past to give us wonderful discounts for our spays and neuters had been bought out by large corporate giants. Our partners before were never partnering for the money. . They were there for us because they loved the dogs as much as we did, and it was their way of helping. They knew that they played a huge role in Coastal and other rescues by being able to help dogs that would otherwise have no chance. They treated our dogs just like their regular customers' dogs. Never did we hear, "They're just a rescue." Or "Why do you care so much?" . Those partners are gone now. Today average cost for a spay/neuter for us is more than $480, more than double what the cost was before. We are hoping that one day we will find new partners who can find it in their hearts to help, but until that day, we are asking for your help to start this fund and keep it going so we never have to say no to a dog or puppy because we don't have the funds to pay for their spay and neuter. . We have set up a "SPAY/NEUTER FUND" so we can continue to rescue and save these dogs. Your donation of any amount will help immensely. . To DONATE, please visit our website at, www.coastalk9gsr.org/donate . From all of us at Coastal, THANK YOU!!! . . #germanshepherd #coastalgsrsd #gsd #adoptdontshop #fureverfamily #sdrescuedogs #rescuedog #rescuedogsofinstagram #rescuegermanshepherd #cgsrsd #rescuedogsofinstagram #puppies #coastalk9gsr #spayneuter
MAGGIE’s PUPPIES - MINNIE & MILLIE

MAGGIE’s PUPPIES - MINNIE & MILLIE

AND THEN THERE WAS MINNIE AND MILLIE!😀 Who are Minnie and Millie?? They are 2 of MAGGIE’s puppies who have been enjoying their days in foster care. MINNIE is the black and white dog, while MINNIE is brown and white. Both pups are 100% cute! . Both girls are learning so much from their big dog foster siblings, and we are learning about them too. They are keeping their foster parents busy and are growing like a weed. . After fostering them for two weeks, their foster mom shared the following with us. . “Minnie is shy at first but if you talk to her and sit still she will approach on own. She loves water. She hops in and out of the baby pool on her own randomly throughout the day. Lots of energy, loves toys and is very social with other dogs. You have to watch her because she loves to get into plants. Loves to be outside. She is vocal especially during feeding time. . Millie is smaller in stature, smaller feet. She likes to cuddle. She loves to sleep on or by your feet. She prefers to be indoors but can be coaxed outside to potty or to play with the other dogs. Very social with other dogs. Loves toys, can get mouthy. Very playful. . Neither is leash trained. Both are using indoor pee pads and/or going outdoors to do their business. Accidents are fewer.” . That’s an amazing report after two weeks. We’ve noticed that all of MAGGIE’s puppies have excellent dispositions and wonderful personalities. . . At 11 weeks they are big so they’ll likely be big dogs. We don’t know what kind of dog the father is….other than he must have been a handsome dog.😀 . . If you think you may have the right home🏡 for one of these pups, let us know! Go to our new website and complete an Adoption Application. www.coastalk9gsr.org. . If you are interested in fostering a pup, please complete one of our Foster Applications on our website.

PUPDATE! on Maggie’s Puppies!

PUPDATE!😀 . MAGGIE’s puppies are growing! At 10 weeks their personalities are really starting to show. They are wonderful puppies who have a wonderful story. They may have been unexpectedly born in a shelter but we promised them they will live the rest of their lives in a loving home.❤️ . 7 of MAGGIE’s 9 puppies (MILO, MARLEY, MIA, MEGAN, MISTY, MANDY, MOLLY) got to play in the “big yard” today. They had a blast exploring and playing with each other and our volunteers. . MAGGIE’s 2 other puppies (MILLIE and MINNIE) are doing great in their foster home as they await their forever homes. We will share an update on them soon! . Btw, ALL of the puppies are available for adoption! . For those of you who may not know, we were informed of a wonderful female who found herself in the shelter 8 weeks ago. The shelter didn’t know she was pregnant until one day she was suddenly nursing 9 beautiful puppies. . Momma MAGGIE is a 3 year old GSD mix. She’s a wonderful dog and wonderful mother to her pups. We went to rescue her and saw her 9 pups. We wanted to make sure they went to good homes so we decided to rescue both MAGGIE and her puppies. . . . If you think you may have the right home🏡 for one of these pups, let us know! Go to our new website and complete an Adoption Application. www.coastalk9gsr.org. .

Pup-a-looza!

IT’S A PUP-A-LOOZA! Puppies?? Yes! puppies! 😀 Meet Momma MAGGIE and her puppies MILLIE, MISTY, MINNIE, MEGAN and MOLLY. . We never know when we will have puppies at the rescue. Sometimes we rescue puppies from an owner relinquishing them, sometimes we rescue puppies from backyard breeders, and sometimes we rescue a female GSD who ends up being pregnant. . We were informed of a wonderful female who found herself in the shelter 8 weeks ago. The shelter didn’t know she was pregnant until one day she was suddenly nursing 9 beautiful puppies. . Momma MAGGIE is a 3 year old GSD mix. She’s a wonderful dog and wonderful mother to her pups. We went to rescue her and saw her 9 pups. We wanted to make sure they went to good homes so we decided to rescue both MAGGIE and her puppies. We brought home 5 of the females and the others will join our pack next week. . At 8 weeks they are big so they’ll likely be big dogs. We don’t know what kind of dog the father is….other than he must have been a handsome dog.😀 . . If you think you may have the right home🏡 for one of these pups, let us know! Go to our new website and complete an Adoption Application. www.coastalk9gsr.org. .
