Gwen and two other siblings were dumped at a high kill shelter due to moving. These noble and loyal shepherds were treated like an old pair of shoes they no longer wanted. All three shepherds were extremely thin and running out of time at the shelter. The young sibling was adopted but Gwen and her older 10 year old brother were overlooked.

A very caring person bailed them out on their last day. Unfortunately her senior alfa female decided she didn’t want a younger sister and attacked Gwen on two occasions.

Poor Gwen is once again looking for her forever home. She is such a friendly and sweet girl and deserves a happy ending with a loving forever family. She is still very thin and her fur recently shaved due to foxtails. Once her fur grows out and she gains weight, she will be around 75 lbs. She gets along with goats, horses, other dogs and cats.

If you would like to meet her or find out more information, please fill out the on-line application.

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.
