Jennifer is a small, slim and submissive female shepherd who was pulled from a high-kill shelter on her last day. She is about 2 years old, weighs 65 pounds, is very light on her feet and likes her crate.

Jennifer has the classic shepherd’s long, steady lope, which with her youthful energy would make her perfect as a jogging companion. At her first adoption event, she gave ears-down gentle kisses to almost every child that came by. As with all shepherds, care should be taken around very young children, as her size and weight might accidentally brush one off balance.

So far, she greets almost every dog (including all her pals at the adoption event!) with a cheerful sniff, and is getting along well with the cranky male malamute at her foster home. She does seem to be far too interested in cats and squirrels so a feline free environment would be best.

Jennifer has the classic sable markings and coloration that is usually characteristic of Eastern Europe heritage. For more information, contact

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.
