Hugo is a classic black and tan male who should fill out to be around 85 pounds. Right now, he’s thin and needs to gain some muscle. We stumbled on Hugo at a crowded animal shelter, where he was in a cage with two other dogs and getting bossed around by a dog smaller than him.

Hugo has just arrived so we are getting to know him better. It was obvious that he we not familiar with riding in a car–he tried to crawl underneath it rather than jump in! We see in Hugo a wonderful diamond in the rough just waiting for someone special to appreciate and mold him. Could you be the special family for Hugo?

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.
