7 year old Lobo was turned into the shelter because he got “too big.” While we certainly don’t understand that logic, we are certain Lobo can do much better. In fact, he already has, because with very generous supporters Lobo survived his encounter with “Bloat”. Now his stomach is stapled, gastropexy, so this can never happen again.
Lobo came to GSROC malnourished and uncomfortable with a fused spine. He was very anxious about his future. Now, Lobo is learning to relax and trust people. He likes walks and hard toys he can chew on. One thing we have learned – he can’t be trusted with soft, squeaky toys. He is a sweet older boy who requires love, patience and some good meds!
Lobo has been through a lot in his life so we recommend an adult only family for Lobo. He has not been properly socialized with other animals and needs to be an only dog – prince of all he surveys.

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.
