Age: 12 months

It’s obvious to us that Scarlett was someone’s well cared for pet at one time–her coat is in good shape, she enjoys other dogs, and she has a steady temperament. What we can’t figure out is why someone didn’t take a few extra moments to get her an ID tag or microchip that could have been her ticket back home.

Someone’s loss is going to be a lucky person’s gain, as Scarlett is a beautiful and affectionate girl. She is a large girl, approximately 70 pounds at 1 year old, and she her agenda is to play! play! play! With just a little direction and training, Scarlett will be a magnificent ambassador for our wonderful breed.

Scarlett was rescued by a Good Samaritan who tried desperately to locate Scarlett’s family. The Good Samaritan reluctantly took Scarlett to the animal shelter in the hopes that her family would be looking for her there, but no such luck. When no one went to claim Scarlett, the same Good Samaritan paid the ‘bail out’ fee to get Scarlett out of the animal shelter and safely into the care of GSROC. We salute this concerned animal lover and her family for going out of their way to improve the life of a little lost dog.

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.
