Jambie is our own canine ball star. He is a driven athlete, agile, responsive and smart, requiring a firm and consistant human who has to work to keep ahead of him. Don’t let his 60 pound frame fool you, he is a lot of dog!

When Jambie came to us, he was a lean adolescent with an attitude. He had been languishing in a shelter and was waiting for somebody to see his posibilities and his unique style. GSROC came to his rescue and found a four-footed Mickey Mantle who can retrieve for hours. It was then that we discovered that this lanky clown was a sponge, eager to learn and soak up affection. In a few training sessions, he was acting like a seasoned professional and was able to pass the tough screening for canine detection work. While we are waiting for word on his prospects, we are also looking for the best situation for a dog with so much to give.

Jambie would be best as an only dog or possibly with an older female that does not share his love of play. While he has gained a lot of social skills and can now go to events and enjoy being with other dogs and their handlers, he does need an experienced, consistant handler. He would probably thrive with a family who had a lot of eager throwing arms and would be excellent for someone who is interested in agility, search and rescue or possibly even therapy visits, although his enthusiasm needs to be kept in check. He would truly shine with daily workouts and could easily serve anybody’s New Year’s resolution to get in shape!

Jambie is a bundle of energy wrapped in a deceptively small package. Do you have what it takes, and the tennis ball budget, to complete Jambie’s transformation from “trash” to “treasure”?

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.
