2 year old Chevy was abandoned with her babies in a rural area. She was filthy, hungry and emaciated, yet determined to keep her babies safe. We gasped when we saw her as we could count each one of her ribs! She was a good mom to her puppies, has gained weight and is now ready to start a life of her own.
She is crate trained, potty trained, has some resource guarding issues with food and toys. Which is understandable considering she was living on her own, scavenging for food for her and her babies. She can be overprotective of people in her home at times. At times when the other dogs play she will stalk them, but as her puppies grew older, this behavior stopped.
She is looking forward to starting a training class so she can learn all the necessary dog skills to impress her people. She will do best as an only dog in her home as she does not like to share the attention of her people with other dogs in the home. Due to her resource guarding behaviors, we recommend a home without small children.
Chevy and her family are now all in a GSROC foster home and has gained weight. She is a good mother to her babies and is very protective. She likes the people in her foster home but can quickly become over protective of them. Chevy is crate trained and housebroken. She needs further training on leash and obedience skills.
Chevy is currently co-existing with the dogs in her foster home but she does not like to share her people with them. She will be best as an only dog in a home with teenage and older children. Chevy was on her own for quite awhile before we rescued her. Consequently she is food and toy possessive. Young children would not understand that issue.

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 Our adoption donation is minimum $350.00 plus $25.00 for microchip for adult dogs and $450 plus $25.00 microchip for puppies 1 year and under. 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.
