KNIGHT was recently adopted and taken home by his new family. Just 2 hours after arriving home, he suffered a tragic accident. While chasing a frisbee tossed by a family member, he leapt into the air to retrieve it. He came crashing down into the spa with a spine chilling shriek. He could not get up. Knight was rushed to the vet with a dislocated shoulder and paralyzed rear legs! It appears that he suffered a ruptured disc which wrapped around his spinal column. The prognosis was grim. His new family then turned their back on him and told us they wanted nothing more to do with him. In addition, they refused to assist with his financial needs.
We could not take our backs on Knight and we ensured he got the treatment and surgery he needed. He is now in a GSROC foster home and working to recuperate.
UPDATE January, 2021 –
Knight’s surgery was completed and he is now able to walk on all 4 legs with a sling support. We are so happy with this progress! However, he is not out of the woods and needs continued quiet bed rest with sling support. His shoulder continues to give him problems and “popped” out of joint again. We are awaiting our vet’s determination to see if further surgery is needed.
2.5 year old Knight is a gorgeous boy who likes people and enjoys making friends. He is a happy guy with lots of energy.. Knight likes to prance on his leash when he is feeling good about himself. He is housebroken, walks easily on a leash and knows some basic commands. When other dogs walk by he is curious but unfazed. Knight is a big boy and strong.
Knight tends to view small dogs as toys and therefore we do not recommend him for homes with small dogs or cats.

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 Our adoption donation is minimum $350.00 plus $25.00 for microchip for adult dogs and $450 plus $25.00 microchip for puppies 1 year and under. 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.
