When her family moved, three-year-old Kirsty was dumped at an animal shelter where, not surprisingly, she was scared and confused. Once released from “jail” and secure in her new foster home, she immediately blossomed. With her stunning good looks and confident personality, she has all the elements needed to make someone a spectacular companion!

Kirsty is big, strikingly beautiful, and very feminine. Based on her magnificent appearance, build, and great disposition, we think she comes from excellent German Shepherd lines. She appears to have received good care before she was abandoned. She has a glamorous lush, light-colored coat with a dark muzzle and a small sable saddle. Her long, bushy tan tail has a faint darker stripe down the middle. Large-boned and substantial, Kirsty carries weight well on her heavy frame. She is, however, committed to a weight loss program to achieve her ideal size of about 82 lbs.

Once Kirsty realized she was safe and loved, her happy nature became apparent. She’s devoted and affectionate to her people and follows her foster mom everywhere, content to snooze nearby. Inherently well-mannered, calm, and trusting, Kirsty is cooperative, eager to please, and a quick learner. She’s crate trained and loves riding in the car. Surprisingly quiet, Kirsty hardly ever barks, behaves well on a leash, doesn’t chew the “wrong” stuff, and she’s not a jumper. With daily walks, she would probably do quite well in a house with only a small yard or even a condo or apartment.

Kirsty ‘s placid, relaxed demeanor leads us to believe she would be good with children of any age, although we haven’t tested her. She gets along well with other dogs of all sizes, enjoying playful romps and games of chase with her foster brothers and sisters, including a beagle (some of them are in the photos below). Since she’s somewhat dominant with other dogs, it’s possible she could clash with another highly “alpha” female. She likes human males and females equally. However, a feline-free environment would best suit her.

Something of a couch potato, Kirsty needs a family that will make sure she receives good nutrition and gets plenty of exercise to help her maintain her girlish figure. She’s looking for a pack leader who will provide reassuring guidance and obedience training.

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.
