Starved stray dog in desert recovers and now ready for adoption

Pharrell was rescued by Coastal German Shepherd Rescue as a stray in the desert. Initially believed to be a senior dog, it was determined that he was only a year or two old, but looked older due to his condition. Pharrell was emaciated, covered with fleas, and had to be carried into the shelter because his body was too weak.

Thankfully, Pharrell responded well to treatment and gained weight as his fur began to grow back. He is described as dog friendly and active. He does have Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) as a result of his rough start in life, so he will need a special diet. Coastal German Shepherd Rescue made him available for adoption recently so he can find his forever home.

The ideal home for Pharrell would be with experienced Shepherd owners who are committed to doing advanced training with him. He does not get along with cats and loves to chase tennis balls. Although he gets along with other dogs, his prey drive makes him unsuitable to be in a home with small dogs.
