UPDATE: JANUARY 2020,
Becca needs our help! SHE started acting poorly so we took her to the vet for an exam. She was not eating well and we were concerned. The vet has told us she needs dental work ASAP!! Poor girl has several rotten teeth that are rapidly becoming abscessed. These teeth need to be extracted immediately to prevent further infection! No wonder she didn’t want to eat her meals. Each bite must have been so painful! Can Becca count on your support?
Dedicated GSROC supporters raised the needed $5000 funds for Becca’s surgery. Becca has received that eye surgery and is much improved! She is seeing much better and feels better too. Our vet has told us thanks to her recent surgery he does not expect a recurrence of this vision problem.
Our vet has informed us that Becca has made strides with her vision. Her right eye has improved greatly although her left eye still requires hourly eyedrops. Our vet told us she has “dry eye” which causes pain and itching. It can be surgically corrected but is very expensive. We believe without this surgery, Becca will never be adopted.
Becca is another of the dogs confiscated from a hoarding situation. She is related in some way to the reindeer group of dogs that we rescued just before Christmas. She arrived with serious eye infections and needed our help. Now that she is receiving treatment, she is making great strides.
Becca spent time in a GSROC foster home and doing well. She loved to spend her time with her foster mom and was happiest when she is right by her side. She would make a wonderful constant companion. She loved to go for walks and her foster mom went for bike rides with Becca right by her side.
Her vision impairment causes her to miss some things – she doesn’t see cats and squirrels when they run by her – but when she gets close to other dogs, she will bark. We believe it may be that due to her limited vision, she is not exactly sure if the dogs are friend or foe. Once she understands they will not hurt her, she calms down and is fine. However, when we introduced her to cats, she growled and let us know that she does not like cats.
Our vet has likened her vision issues to looking at the world through dirty sunglasses. She is on several different medications for this and the foster mom believes Becca is improving. Her right eye has improved dramatically and the vet is hoping the left eye will do the same.

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.
