Senior sweetheart!CHECK OUT MY NEW PHOTOS!

Maxwell was rescued from a very crowded shelter where he was stuffed in a cage with other dogs and puppies. Maxwell was a great kennel mate and got along with everyone beautifully. We suspect that he may have belonged to an elderly person who could no longer care for him, or possibly his owner may have died. Whatever the circumstances, it was obvious that poor Maxwell was in need of a friend and he found plenty of them with GSROC.

Maxwell arrived very thin and his coat bears the evidence of poor nutrition. We are working to get him back to his former glory to make him the proud shepherd that he was born to be. He has just arrived so we will update his profile as we learn more about him. He is in need of a sponsor to help offset the cost of his monthly boarding.

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.
