This magnificent girl is Gypsy! Gypsy is a large classic shepherd who’s only 3 years young. She is a bit strong on the leash, and can definitely benefit from an obedience course, but once she calms down she is willing to learn. She has the classic German Shepherd stance, and it looks like she is prancing when she walks.

A call came in from a police officer who told us this dog was being neglected and needed to get out of her current situation. Her family had her outside 24/7, sometimes even tied up in the front yard next to the sidewalk, exposed to all the elements. She did not appear to have been bathed, and the tips of her ears were bleeding from all the fly bites. Fortunately, the officer knew of our rescue, and asked us to intervene. Even though we are already bombarded with calls, we felt it necessary to save this beautiful girl and get her into a loving home. Sad but true, Gypsy did not know she was in a poor situation, because she had never experienced anything different.

Gypsy has a beautiful coat, and her ears have healed. Gypsy now needs a home to go to, where she can learn the simple things like how to be taken for a walk, play in a clean yard and sleep indoors on a cozy bed.

Gypsy is great with kids, and very friendly with people, as long as they are not strangers trying to get in her back yard! She does like to chase kitties, so a feline free environment would be necessary. She would probably do best as an only princess. She is extremely alert and curious and would probably do well in an active household.

Gypsy will need an experienced German Shepherd person to show her what behavior is acceptable and how to be obedient and channel some of her energy. Please open your home to this gorgeous girl, and give her the loving environment she needs to flourish.

Gypsy is currently in boarding. For more information on her, please contact and complete the online application to expedite the

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.
