Sage is black and tan with a plush coat. She was born September 19, 2004. She is calm and well mannered but is curious of cats and tends to bark at them. She knows her basic commands in German and will chase balls and return them and drop them at your feet. She weighs about 80 pounds and she is in perfect health.
Skye is tan and black and the half sister to Sage (same Father), born May 22, 2005. Skye had some formal training and responds almost immediately to German commands. She has a HIGH play drive and loves to be stimulated. It is obvious when you throw a ball for both of them how much more intense she is when she stares at the ball prior to throwing it.
Both dogs are housebroken. They walk on lead and will sit when you stop walking. They do bark at dogs while on a lead but this could be easily resolved during a refresher course and consistent correction.
Sage and Skye lost their home due to family problems and were left alone for many hours each day. The owner felt horrible knowing that a Shepherd needs more attention than he could provide. They came into our safety net on 01/ 20/07.
After careful screening, they were placed in a home together with the promise this would be their forever home. But unfortunately, this family did not follow thru with their promise and returned Sage and Skye for the very same reason as the original owner, no time and a new baby. Once their baby was born, Sage and Skye were forbidden to come into the house. It is heartbreaking to know that their lives were turned upside-down and the dogs are homeless once again.
Please don’t consider adopting unless you can make a lifelong commitment to these fabulous dogs and consider them as an important part of your family. We will update their bio ASAP.

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 In light of the rising vet care costs associated with Giardia tests and boarding at vets, we are raising our adoption donation for adult GSDs to $395.00 starting on July 1, 2021
The adoption donations for other dogs will remain the same — $475.00 for purebred puppies, $375 for mixed puppies. (On a case by case basis, e.g. senior for senior, we will place a senior for $275.00 with a senior.)
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.
