Carl is another member of the Fast Food litter. He sees himself as the leader of this little pack. He keeps an eye on his siblings. This litter and their parents lost their homes and had nowhere to turn.
Carl is busily working on his puppy social manners. He is in a GSROC foster home where he is being socialized with other dogs and children. He is a cute cuddle bug right now but you know he will grow into a big dog. He can be a bit of a doofus sometimes – like many puppies are. That is why it is critical that training begins immediately upon adoption. Puppies need a home dedicated to teaching them the “rules of the road” so they know what behavior is acceptable and which is not.
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 In light of the rising vet care costs associated with Giardia tests and boarding at vets, we are raising our adoption donation for adult GSDs to $395.00 starting on July 1, 2021
The adoption donations for other dogs will remain the same — $475.00 for purebred puppies, $375 for mixed puppies. (On a case by case basis, e.g. senior for senior, we will place a senior for $275.00 with a senior.)
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.
