When we found him languishing in an animal shelter, his fur was matted and he had a terrible ear infection. His spirits were broken and his sad eyes led the shelter to label him as a much older dog—he’s not. McDuff is approaximately 3 years young, but he obviously hasn’t seen much of the world. Our devoted volunteers are working with him to teach him some basic obedience skills. Right now, he reminds us of a big, clumsy teenager with a lot of love to give.

At a recent adoption event, McDuff took the opportunity to seek out the sprinklers on the grass and try to “catch” the water in his mouth!He is a “leaner” who bonds quickly and looks to his person for praise and guidance. He will make a wonderful, loyal companion to someone who will appreciate his gentle nature.

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.
