Gibbs is a  5 year old boy who was picked up as a stray. He has a gorgeous dark coat with distinctive tan markings. Gibbs loves dogs his own size and people of every size. We learned of Gibbs’ plight while we were attending a large animal event, so we agreed to bring him into our shepherd life boat.

Once Gibbs walked over to the GSROC booth at the event, he Immediately  began to wag his tail and want to play!  He recognized kindred GSD spirits and was very excited.

At a recent adoption event Gibbs attended, he impressed everyone with his calm, quiet manner.   He politely greets new  people and stands quietly while people pet him.  Loud doggy shenanigans don’t seem to bother him a bit, he just turns away and ignores them.  Gibbs will excel at being your loyal companion, ready and willing to stay by your side.

Gibbs is now in a GSROC foster home where he is impressing everyone with his sweet, quiet manner.  He fell in love with his foster brother’s bed and has commandeered it.  The two of them are getting along just fine. When he met the resident cat, he was interested, but just watched him.  When the cat came to investigate, he sat quietly.

Home Visit Prior to any dog going home, we do require a home visit to ensure that your environment is safe and secure. Once your home has been approved, the adoption can move forward.

Adoption Donation Our adoption donation is minimum $350.00 plus $25.00 for microchip for adult dogs and $450 plus $25.00 microchip for puppies 1 year and under. This donation is tax deductible as allowed by law and helps to offset the costs that we have incurred for the dog's care and housing during his or her stay with our group. The minimum adoption donation does not entirely cover the investments that we have made in the dogs so if you are in a position to give more, we would be honored to receive your additional donation. All adoption donations go directly toward the needs of our dogs.

All dogs adopted through GSROC are spayed or neutered, current on their vaccines and de-wormed. Because the minimum Adoption Donation rarely covers the costs associated with each dog, we ask that adopters who are in a position to give additional funds do so at their discretion.
