Maestro is a handsome and loving 5 year old boy who was struck by a car and taken to a distant animal shelter. His injuries were so serious that he had to lose a leg in order to survive. Maestro gets along beautifully on 3 legs. He is very affectionate and gave his rescuer kisses throughout his ride from the shelter to the rescue.

Maestro likes dogs of all sizes, but cats are a definite NO for this big boy. At a recent adoption event, he became quite the charmer when he met some female dogs. He introduced himself politely and quickly became friends with the girl dogs. This guy will quickly work his way into your heart. Just give him a chance.

Maestro does not seem to care for children and we recommend an experienced owner, adult only home for him.  While very affectionate with his family, Maestro can be territorial of his bed space and does not like strangers getting close to and hugging his face.    He is crate trained and housebroken.   He even handles the doggy door with ease.

Playful female dogs are just the ticket for this charmer. Please consider Maestro if you are looking for a dark, handsome charmer to enter your life.

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.
