A concerned citizen alerted us when they witnessed this beautiful puppy being neglected, ignored, and finally dumped at a high-kill municipal animal shelter to fend for herself. She is now safe and warm in a foster home while she awaits a family who will love and appreciate her for the rest of her life.

Scarlet has a striking deep red and black coat and a sturdy build. Although thin from her ordeal, she is now eating heartily and gaining weight. Her spirit is still very much intact and she loves to romp and play like all puppies. She is friendly with other dogs and kitties, walks nicely on a leash, and loves to ride in the car. She is crate trained and learning house manners.

Like all puppies, Scarlet will thrive only if trained, which will bring out her finer instincts. She will make a stunning companion for the right family.

If you are interested in meeting her or learning more, please fill out the online application first and contact dforsyth@socal.rr.com.

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.
