Miss Rusty


Age: 2 years

I Have A Special Sponsor!UPDATED BIO!

While our dogs have been relaxing in air conditioned homes, this poor girl was abandoned in the desert in extreme heat! Who does this?? Moves away & leaves their dog in the desert heat all alone?

Terrified & alone, she didn’t know what to do! The community gave her food & water hoping she would relax enough to be caught. A kind animal lover was able to capture her and she is now safe with GSROC.

We have whisked her off to our vet for an evaluation. We are not sure what health issues she may have yet.

She is terrified & will need time to decompress. PLEASE – send your tax deductible pledge to GSROC to help us with the cost of caring for this poor girl.

She needs a special sponsor while she learns to relax and trust again.
UPDATE 9/17/2014 – Rusty is slowly beginning to come out of her shell, thanks to a small team of dedicated volunteers. She is a very sweet girl who will do best in a home with other friendly dogs.

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.
