No cats


Chief is the latest casualty of out of control fireworks. He was found wandering a local neighborhood on 4th of July weekend. He had no collar, no tags, no microchip, nothing to provide a clue as to where he came from. Efforts were made to try and find his home but no one came to claim him.

Poor Chief, he may look like a confident GSD, but he let us know in no uncertain terms – he does not like fireworks! A kind animal lover took him in while she looked for his family. Chief got along well with the small dog in the home and ignored the pitbull next door that barked incessantly at him whenever he walked by. He is selective about the dogs he likes.

Chief is in our training class and quickly brushing up on his training. This is one smart boy. He likes to impress his people – he takes pride in doing things right. Check out his latest video – doesn’t he look serious? Well, that is until he gets a little pat on the head…then he melts. But, don’t tell him we know that, ok? click here for the video. Chief

We believe Chief is approximately 4 years old and appears to be housebroken. Recently we introduced Chief to some cats. He let us know – cats would not be allowed in his home.

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.
