Kuzco is a 9 month old cute puppy who is very active, housebroken and crate trained. Named after the emperor in a recent Disney film, he can be a sweetie – but he can also become a bit over protective if allowed. An experienced home that sets limits for him will ensure his success.
He has just completed an obedience training session and will happily show you all that he has learned. He follows commands and has been well socialized with other dogs and people. He lives in a GSROC foster home and gets along well with the medium and large dogs there. He will thrive in an experienced home that enjoys the typical GSD personality and will provide him with the structure and training he craves.
He will do best in an adult home or one with older children. This is not the puppy for families with small kids. He is 9 months old and filled with puppy energy. Sometimes his exuberance gets the best of him that is why we recommend a home with older children. He is active, likes to explore and have a good time. Sitting around as a couch potato is something Kuczo would never dream of doing.
Once Kozco trusts and respects you he will follow the rules, and loves to cuddle with his people. And then he will be ready to get up, get moving and have fun again.
Please remember, german shepherds are puppies until at least 2 years old. Don’t be fooled by Kuczo’s size, he is still very much as a puppy. As cute as they are – puppies demand a large investment of time, patience, and training. They are inquisitive, have endless energy and get into just about everything. They dig, chew, and seemingly never stop! Think long and hard about your lifestyle. If you are not willing to invest the time and training to ensure your puppy matures into the wonderful dog – then please consider an older dog.

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.
