Hi, my name is Vinnie! I was rescued by Coastal in November of 2022 with my 7 week old siblings. I’m the last pup of my litter to get adopted but I haven’t lost faith that my furever family is out there! Although my ears don’t stand up straight like all my friends here at the ranch, I can promise you that I’m just as much of a German Shepherd as any of the other dogs!

Playtime is my favorite time! I love to be taken out on walks and get extra excited when my volunteer friends can throw the ball around for me in the play areas. I absolutely LOVE people! I can be a little timid at first when I meet someone but once I get to know them, I want to be their sidekick! I get along with most of the dogs here at the ranch but sometimes I can get a little too “rough” for some of the smaller and younger pups during play time. I play best with dogs that have the same level of energy as me!

My perfect furever family would have to be active because I have a LOT of energy! I need a nice yard with a big fence because aside from being great at going on walks, I’m really great at jumping! I do best having a 4 legged companion so I’m hoping my family already has a dog that is calm and confident that can help teach me to mellow out. I’m a little too high energy for kids but if my furever family has teenagers that are looking to walk, run and throw the ball around for me I think that may be a good fit! I can’t wait to meet you!

If you are interested in meeting this dog, please fill out our online application first. Contact us via email at The minimum adoption donation ranges from $300 to $400. 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. 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.
