Terrified and alone, Daisy was found by an animal control officer lying in a field, covered with blood. As he approached the dog, he could not believe his eyes. BB pellets were scattered around the area where Daisy was found. Daisy had been used for target practice!
When GSROC heard this chilling story, we rushed to provide Daisy shelter in our lifeboat. Although our financial cupboard is bare, we could NOT turn our back on this poor girl.
An investigation is underway by Animal Contral and GSROC is eager to hear the details as they emerge.
Daisy has now recovered from her ordeal and is doing much better! It was discovered that a pellet had lodged in the bone in her leg. After watching it closely, our vet has determined that surgery would not in her best interest. Daisy will always walk with a bit of a “skip” in her step, but she is in no pain or distress. In fact, one of her favorite things to do is run laps around the yard at her foster home.
She loves chewies and chew toys. Daisy is perfectly happy at home, keeps herself entertained for hours at a time with squeaky toys and tasty bones, and isn’t really the type that needs to go on long hikes, but she does need regular walks to help her keep in shape.
Daisy is currently in a foster home with cats and another dog and doing very well. She ignores the cats and has made pals with the resident dog. Daisy is a quiet girl with a sweet, gentle personality.

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.
