Dieter is a stunning dog… He has had bit of a tough start in life and would love to have a family to call his own. Dieter is the son of a working police K-9 and has the looks and conformation to prove it. Dieter was sold to a fellow police officer who did not want to deal with a rambunctious puppy and therefore left him in his dog run 24/7. When Dieter barked from being alone locked in a cage 24/7 his owner put a bark collar on him. Dieter has the scars to show how often he was shocked. Poor Dieter is head shy from this horrible experience. When our volunteer had to place a collar on him he resisted, but even when she forced the issue, he never showed any aggression. Dieter just wanted to give her kisses and play.

When the officer who owned Dieter no longer wanted him, poor Dieter found himself at a high kill shelter. It was Dieters lucky day… GSROC made room to take him in.

What we found was a dog who just wants to be loved. He needs to be in a home where he can be with his people as he bonds very strong and is afraid of being thrown away again. He loves to go for walks and is a total gentleman in the car. Dieter is good with other dogs and gave kisses to a 2 year old little boy in his stroller. He was also very friendly with a small terrier mix, so he just might be good with kitties too 🙂

Dieter is 2 years old, neutered and has all his shots. All he needs is a family to love him forever…

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

  • Adult GSDs: $395
  • Purebred GSD Puppies: $495
  • Mixed GSD Puppies: $395
  • Special Senior-to-Senior Adoptions: $295
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.
