Heidi IV


Age: 5-6 years

Heidi is a drop dead gorgeous black and tan female who’s owner died. The owner’s wife is extremely ill and can not take care of Heidi properly so she is eager to find a loving home for their 4 year old beauty. Heidi has nice manners and is good with other friendly dogs. She is housebroken and knows her commands. At a recent adoption event, she was very polite and well behaved around all of the other dogs, even though she knew she was the prettiest.

Heidi’s coat shines with good nutrition and her weight is perfect. She walks nicely on a leash. She is currently on phenobarbitol because she had one seizure, but she should be tested again to see if she truly requires the medication regularly or if the seizure was a one time occurance due to something she injested.

Update: It didn’t take long for Heidi to find her second home. Life was great for Heidi, playing with the other family dogs and running around the yard chasing birds. Then after two years, Heidi was faced with the loss of her second family. Due to a stroke and surgery, Heidi had to come back to GSROC.

She’s currently staying at one of our Vet Hospitals getting checked out. She’s had a few seizures over the last two years and we want to make sure she’s on the correct medications to keep her seizures under control.

We worry that Heidi will not do well in boarding until she finds her forever home. She is such a special dog and has lots of love to give.

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.
