Zorro is a beautiful black GSD, about 3 years old, who came from a shelter in Riverside. He has been fostered with Coastal volunteers and their dogs since joining the rescue. Zorro seems to have been mistreated in the past, like possibly someone threw things at him. He is shy and gentle but can also be fearful, especially if he thinks there is something in your hand. Now that he is safe, he is learning that sometimes that hand might hold a treat!
Zorro loves to be in the company of other dogs, people too, but especially dogs. He still likes to chew on toys but may find someone’s shoe on occasion. In his current foster home, he loves to run and play with another GSD named Beau. He will be content in his new home with another playful canine companion (or two) and people who are home at least part time. Older kids or teenagers that understand his fears would be better suited for him than very young children. He also plays fetch and loves the water hose!

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.
