Charlee’s photos told us the story of a dog that had been neglected for quite some time. We are estimating his age at around 5 years, but it’s hard to tell because he is in such bad condition. He could be anywhere from 4 years to 6 years old. When we discovered him, he was barely able to lift his head to acknowledge his rescuer.

UPDATE 2/16/07
First of all, don’t let those sad eyes fool you! He is actually quite spunky, in a comical way. He loves to ride in the car and be right next to his person. Charlee knows some basic commands, like sit, down, stay, shake, and no.

Charlee was given an injection of Cortisone which has helped ALOT with his itching. His appetite is excellent! He is on a daily ear wash and an antibiotic ear medication as well as antibiotic pills for his skin.

He is now coming to his foster mom for affection regularly and comes to his name when called. He walks fairly well with the leash because he wants to please you. Charlee is also not much of a barker, only when necessary. He LOVES CATS!

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.
