This black and tan beauty was rescued from an animal shelter when her owner dumped her there. Of course, Belle was understandably confused and uncertain, wondering why she deserved such a fate. But Belle’s luck quickly turned around when we heard of her plight.

Belle was alarmingly thin and was probably starved or neglected in her prior home. She was very weak from starvation. Thanks to Belle’s foster mom, Belle is now receiving love, TLC — AND ample food. Belle’s foster mom reports that Belle is the perfect house guest and says, “This is one sweet dog. We just love her.” She is gaining strength and her playful personality is starting to shine through now.

Belle couldn’t have a sweeter personality, for there isn’t anything she doesn’t love. Belle is good with dogs and people of all sizes and ages, not to mention CATS too! Belle is pretty mellow and loves to just sit at your feet. She is house trained and current on all her shots. Will you be the one to help show Belle that her future life is full of love and excellent care?

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.
