Puppy Bear

I'm Housebroken!I love to play ballCHECK OUT MY NEW PHOTOS!No cats or small dogs

Smart and active, Puppy Bear is a boy who needs a job to do.  Like all GSD puppies, he is curious and filled with energy that just needs to be channeled in the right direction.    Within a week, his foster home taught him some basic commands, sit, down, wait, etc.   He is now busily polishing up his leash skills.  Why?  Well, he understands how important good leash skills are if he wants to get out and explore.  And this boy loves going for walks, hikes, etc.
Lately his intelligence was displayed in a unique way.  He watched his foster mom turn on the shower several times  – and now he is trying to do it himself.  Typical of his age, Puppy Bear can be quite stubborn.  He will do best in a home that provides structure and limits that he craves.
An active home or one who will enroll him in agility or some other type of training will be a good match for this boy.  He also loves fetch and frisbee.  This guy  catches frisbee in the air, super fast, and has the agility and energy of a Belgian Malinois.
Needless to say, Puppy Bear is NOT a dog that can be left alone for hours at a time.  His energy and drive will result in destructiveness.  This boy is no couch potato.
He is now in a foster home with a large dog and a smaller one.  He tends to harass the smaller dog so we believe a home with large, active dogs is a better fit for this guy.

Small children will not work for Puppy Bear due to his exuberance.   A larger family with older kids who are all active with him is more the ticket for this guy.  He can tend to become overprotective if he spends all of his time with just one person.   

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.
