Age: 4-5 months

When Freedom was a little puppy, she lived inside the house with the family. People all said how cute she was, and everything she did was funny. They carried her around and she got to go everywhere with them. She was very happy.

Then Freedom grew bigger, and nobody seemed to think she was cute any longer. People were often angry and yelled at her. One day they took her to the back yard and chained her to the corner of an old shed. Her chain was long, and she could run around, but she kept getting caught on things, and then she could barely move. The days became very hot, and Freedom could not find any shade. All she
had for shelter was an airline kennel that had grown way too small.

She tried to bury herself in tall weeds, but that didn’t help much. Worse yet her chain upset her water dish, and she was so thirsty. Her collar became tighter and tighter until she could barely breathe. The people went in and out of their house and didn’t even look her way.

Freedom was very sad because they didn’t like her any longer. This is so often the story of the puppy people have purchased and then no longer want after it has grown. Freedom came from Missouri, the puppy mill capital of the nation.

She is only 4-5 months old now, and needs a place to be loved once again. Please only apply if you are willing to commit to Freedom for the next 10-15 years. I’m sure she will love you more than you’ll ever know..

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.
