adopt german shepherd- candee



Age: 18 months


This girl was found with a rope around her neck in the middle of nowhere. A kind animal lover took her to a nearby shelter in hopes of finding her family. When no one came to claim her, GSROC was contacted for help. Our volunteer spent her Saturday battling heavy traffic to spring her from that shelter.

She is now safely in the GSROC lifeboat. Candee is a bit shy and uncertain at first, but who can blame her? Abandoned, alone, then landing in a shelter – this poor girl doesn’t know what tomorrow may bring! GSROC has promised to find her a loving home.

Candee’s foster mom reports that it appears that she was mistreated in her past. She is hesitant around new people until she trusts you. Candee would do best in a quiet environment with people that will provide her with the love and security she craves. She is filled with the desire to provide love and loyalty to a new family once she understands she is safe.

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.
