UPDATE: AUGUST, 2019 -Amelia is is a happy girl who likes to have fun.  Our vet has told us she will always have a bit of a curve to her leg due to the car accident.   But, whatever you do, don’t mention it to Amelia!  It does not cause her any pain. She doesn’t let a little thing like that bother her!  This little girl loves to have fun.   She is in a GSROC foster home and doing well.   She gets along with the other dogs in her foster home and is learning not to pester the cat.

UPDATE:  JUNE, 2019 – Little Amelia isn’t so little anymore!  She has gained 10 pounds and is rapidly growing.  She is doing so much better and is a happy, playful girl.


UPDATE – May, 2019  Amelia is improving daily.  She loves cuddles, belly rubs and scratches.  She follows her foster mother where ever she goes. She enjoys playing fetch and having a good time.  Amelia is gentle with children when she meets them and enjoys when they stop to pet her.


6 month old Amelia landed in a high kill shelter after being hit by a car.  Her leg was broken and repaired by the shelter.   But, that is no place for a cute puppy to recuperate.  She was in trouble and GSROC was contacted for help.  When we heard her story, we rushed to save her.

Amelia is now safely in a GSROC foster home and recuperating.   Her foster mom reports she is a happy girl who likes attention.   She is also a very smart girl and is working on honing her selfie skills with her foster mom.  Amelia has let it be known that she is not a fan of the cat or small dog in her foster home.   At this time, we recommend a home with large dogs for this girl.  Amelia may be a puppy, but she has no problem letting her likes be known!

Please remember, adopting a puppy is not everyone’s cup of tea.  As cute as they are – puppies demand a large investment of time, patience, and training.  They are inquisitive, have endless energy and get into just about everything.  They dig, chew, and seemingly never stop! Think long and hard about your lifestyle.

If you are not willing to invest the time and training to ensure your puppy matures into the wonderful dog – then please consider an older dog.

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.
