Adult home needed


7 year old Atlas arrived at GSROC with a serious leg injury.   Thanks to our generous supporters, Atlas is recovering from that injury and is looking forward to finding a loving home.  Atlas is a very big boy who doesn’t appear to have received much love in his previous life.   He takes awhile to warm up to new people, but once he does – he is your pal forever!  He will happily lean against you and ask for love and attention.  Considering he is a big boy- you need to brace yourself when Atlas decides to lean against you for love.

Atlas takes treats a bit roughly from your hand.  Although we are working with him on his doggy manners, we recommend a home without small children for this boy.  Atlas sometimes gets a bit intense when playing with his toys and can exert his dominance if he believes you are going to take his toy away.  Atlas developed some bad habits from his former home and is looking forward to starting obedience training to set him off on the right path.

Atlas has an alpha personality and would be best in a home where he can be the only doggy star.   He is such a big boy  – he is confident he is all the dog you need.


If you would like to meet Atlas, please complete the online application and an adoption counselor will contact you.

Adoption Application If you are interested in adopting one of our dogs, you may submit an application online here.

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.
