So what did Luckie do wrong to end up unwanted in a local shelter? According to the animal control officer, his owner said that Luckie “got too big”. Imagine that…a big shepherd!?!?!

While Luckie was in the local shelter, he got a doggie cold and was slated to be euthanized. The staff at the shelter had fallen in love with this big bear of a guy, so they called GSROC and begged us to please find a place for him. We were well over capacity but we found room somehow, and we couldn’t be happier that we did.

Luckie is now in a foster home. His foster Mom reports that he gets along great with dogs of all sizes. She reports that he is a “true shepherd” as he LOVES to follow her around all the time. While she’s at the computer, he loves to squeeze his gigantic head between her arms while she types, then just stands there and watches her.

At his foster home, Luckie is getting good food, which is obviously something that he hasn’t had in a long time. With proper nutrition, Luckie’s coat will look shiny and snowy white again soon. He is currently thin at 75 pounds, but should fill out to be 90 – 95 pounds. This is a great dog that really wants to be someone’s special guy!

To arrange to meet Luckie please complete the online application first and then contact for more information.

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.
