UPDATED BIO!No cats or small dogs

3 year old Dandy is just in from a crowded, high kill shelter.   The shelter states he is good with big dogs.    He was picked up as a stray by animal control.  When no one came to claim him, GSROC was notified.   He will thrive in a home with older children where he can receive the structure and limits he needs.   Dandy has a quiet demeanor and likes other large dogs.  Small dogs?  Not so much.  Recently we introduced him to a cat.  Dandy let us know in no uncertain terms that he does not like cats.

Dandy had a hip issue and has successfully recuperated from FHO surgery.   During his time at a GSROC foster home while he was recuperating,  the foster mom noted he was calm and non reactive when a neighbor was setting off loud fireworks.   He loves, loves, loves the water and would grab the hose whenever his foster mom tried to use it.

Dandy does have some old trauma to his tongue which causes him to be a bit of a messy eater.

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.
