Bella came to us from a shelter just covered in ticks and obviously miserable. Bella is now tick free and is doing really well.

Bella gets along nicely with other dogs and is learning how to play. When she arrived, she didn’t know what to do with toys, but she’s catching on quickly! She is in a foster home with other dogs of all sizes. She loves to play with her buddy Chance. She is a little shy when first meeting new people but doesn’t take long to warm up. She absolutely loves to be around her people. Bella is potty trained and has nice house manners.

Bella is a small shepherd, approximately 55 pounds with a feminine demeanor. She looks like she has expertly applied eye liner on!

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

  • Adult GSDs: $395
  • Purebred GSD Puppies: $495
  • Mixed GSD Puppies: $395
  • Special Senior-to-Senior Adoptions: $295
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.
