Leo looks like an overstuffed teddy bear and has the personality to match. You just want to sink your hands into his silky coat. He is very loving and grateful for any attention you give him. Leo’s paws are like big golden lion paws—the are enormous, but he’s a gentle giant. We expect him to fill out to be around 85 pounds, maybe more, when he’s full grown.

When he was an adorable little fluffy puppy he had no problem finding a home. Unfortunately his family didn’t see beyond his looks or the needs of a puppy. As he grew and did the normal things that puppies do, it landed him in a shelter at only 8 months old.

He quickly became a favorite of the shelter workers and they turned to us to find Leo a home that will give him the guidance to become the wonderful adult dog he is meant to be. They let us know that Leo would love his own pool to swim in. This youngster wants to please and will shine in an obedience class.

He loves dogs, kids and has been exposed to 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

  • 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.
