Dahlia is a cute little puppy who loves to cuddle and play.  She is 3-4 months old and gets along with other dogs and people.   She is housebroken and crate trained.  Dahlia is a belgian malinois and consequently is extremely smart and energetic.

Belgian Malinois are a separate breed from German Shepherds and require homes that understand and enjoy the breed.  They have high drive and unlimited energy.  They MUST receive training so they can learn how to channel their drive appropriately.

We are looking for a home that is experienced with the breed and looking for a project. Training Dahlia will require your time and commitment for her to be successful.   Please think long and hard before applying for her.   If you do not believe your schedule and life style will allow this  – then please apply for another dog.

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 would like to meet Dahlia, please complete the online application and an adoption counselor will contact you.

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.
