Hi, my name is Finn! I’m about 18 months old and boy, have I had quite the life so far. My original owner didn’t treat me so well. When I broke my front leg, they allowed it to heal without setting it correctly before dumping me off at the shelter. A nice volunteer at GSROC heard about me and brought me to the vet to be looked at. Due to the fact that the break was on my growth plate and it was causing me so much pain, the decision was made to amputate the leg.
You’d think that being three-legged would slow me down but I am just as much of a big goofy guy as those non-tripod dogs. I go for walks around the neighborhood, get in and out of cars on my own, you name it. Because of my abuse early in life, I’m a bit shy at first but once I warm up to you I will show you what a happy guy I am. I love dogs of all sizes but I have a special soft spot for the little ones Oh, and cats? Not a problem, they don’t bother me. I even love children – in fact my foster “sister” took some of her first unsteady steps while holding on to me for balance.
I’m looking for a forever home who’ll love me just the way I am. I would really like to be in a home with another dog, I get lonely and would like to have a buddy. Could you be my lucky match?

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 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.
