Before you make the commitment to adopt a herding dog, we would like you to consider that owning a dog is a big responsibility and one that you should be prepared to honor for the life of the dog. The average life span is 12-14 years. Collies are large active dogs, weighing 60 to 90 pounds, and often display puppy-like behavior until they are 3 or more years old. Shelties' herd and bark at even butterflies. They are active family dogs who need attention, exercise, and training throughout most of their lives, but they are intelligent loving dogs who respond well to direction. All herding dogs shed and require regular grooming.You should be prepared to care for the needs of your dog throughout his or her life. You can expect to pay an average of $1500 yearly to give your Coastal Dog the proper care. This does not include the cost of a serious medical problem. An advantage in choosing to adopt a rescued dog is that you can be matched to a dog that fits your family’s lifestyle, and some dogs require much less attention than others. Many of our dogs are already well-trained and can easily transition to a new home. If you’re ready to adopt a COASTAL dog, the information on this page will guide you through the process.
Please note $25.00 application fee will be verified before we call or talk to your vet or move forward. If you are set on a certain dog please email and ask if that dog is pending adoption. If we receive any part of your application not filled out your application is not valid.
