Please Foster Me!Adult home needed


Nixon is 18 months old and has already lived with two different families.  His first family moved away and dropped him off at the shelter.  His second family decided he was not a match for their family dynamics. This young guy finds himself looking for home once again.

Nixon loves his crate and will happily sleep there at night.  He is housebroken, walks well on a leash and is not destructive when left home alone.  He chooses a few favorite spots within the house and you can always find him there.

As Nixon is only 18 months old, he is going through the doggy teenage years.   He is smart, quick, loving and full of energy.  However, like many teenagers, he also likes to test limits.  He is loving and cuddly with family members but sometimes views strangers with suspicion.  An experienced owner willing to set limits and reinforce training is just what Nixon needs.  With guidance, he will mature into a wonderful doggy companion.    For this reason, we do not recommend him for homes with small children.

Nixon loves his ball and will happily chase it and bring it back to you over and over.  We have not been able to assess Nixon around other dogs at this time, so please check back for updates.

Nixon knows his name and will come when he is called. Like to romp, play and explore? So does our Nixon! He would love to help you with that.


If you would like to meet Nixon, please complete the online application and an adoption counselor will contact you.

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.
