Jaeger wanted to make an excellent impression on our volunteer when she was at the shelter so that she wouln’t overlook him. He was extra charming and calm, and reached a paw out of his kennel as if to say, ‘Hey–look at me!’. Jaeger leaned gently into the bars of his kennel at the shelter so that he could get a good scratch and to show what a good boy he is. Naturally, he won our volunteer over in an instant and we’re happy to have him in our care.

Jaeger is a teenage shepherd with teenage energy, so he will need direction and leadership to help him make good choices! He was very gentle with a toddler that he met, and we think that he would enjoy the company of another dog his own size.

Update 6/1/08
Jaeger is in a home with a 2 year old child, two large dogs and two cats. He has been through fomal dog training at an on site facility for 30 days, where the trainer actually stated, “two more weeks of training and I could do competition obedience with him, someone paid a lot of money for him.” He is an amazing dog, he enjoys the company of his special someone, he is very smart, very curious, housebroken, and gorgeous to boot. The perfect family for him would be an active one, someone who loves to hike and/or go to the dog beach, this kid loves to run and have a good time. Amazingly enough, this kid is so gentle with kids, children can poke him in the eye, lay on him, you name it, he loves every minute of it!!
To arrange to meet him, please complete the online application first and then contact karyn@team-thompson.com You won’t want to pass up this happy-go-lucky guy!

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.
