Meet Sammy, an adorable, fun-loving bundle of joy. Sammy’s plush coat has beautiful black, chocolate brown and white markings, making him quite the cutie pie! Full grown, Sammy should reach between 45 and 50 lbs.

Sammy is friendly to all little and big people and dogs he meets. He has an amazing amount of energy and just wants to play, and play, and play, and play, and play, and play …

Since Sammy is still a puppy, he’ll need lots of attention and chew toys, not to mention training and exercise to keep his active mind out of mischief. We believe that he would be a great candidate for agility training because he is very agile and quick!

Sammy came from a shelter where his time was quickly running out. We can’t believe someone hadn’t scooped up this adorable boy. Luckily for Sammy, a German Shepherd Rescue volunteer spotted him and quickly whisked him to safety.

Remember, when you adopt a puppy you are making a commitment for the next 10-15 years of its life. Puppies are A LOT of work, can chew your favorite items, dig holes in the flower beds, and perform other general puppy antics. But, the rewards are great too. Will you be giving this little darling his loving, forever home?

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.
