Little Guy


Age: 5 Years Young

There is an area known as the Marshland where homeless people live. Mr. Ford (a homeless man) and his beloved companion Little Guy thought they came upon some good luck. A store owner was discarding Alpo canned dog food that was part of the tainted recall. Instead of telling Mr. Ford what was going on, he gave the food to him knowing it could possibly make Little Guy very sick.

The next day a Forensic Officer was called to the Marshland area and found Little Guy and his caretaker, both very sick. Mr. Ford refused medical treatment but agreed to get help for his beloved companion. The Forensic Officer called Animal Control and instead of taking Little Guy to the Animal Shelter, these kind Samaritans took him to the Vet for treatment.

Little Guy’s caretaker and loyal companion came to see him a few times and each time he cried and wept. He slept in the field near the Vet Hospital so he could be nearby. He even offered his backpack and the little bit of money he had to help Little Guy get the treatment he needed. After a few visits Mr. Ford disappeared. We suspect that he has since passed away but the Forensic Officer continues to look for him.

It is obvious Little Guy was very well-loved. We’re still learning more about our homeless furkid but so far we’ve been told he’s good with other dogs, very social around people and doesn’t exhibit any negative behaviors.

Little Guy is finally healthy and ready to leave the Vet Hospital and find his forever home. If you’re interested in learning more about him, please fill out the on-line application and/or contact

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.
