Sisco ended up in a high kill shelter at the worst possible time, the holiday season. When Animal Control called Sisco’s owner, they couldn’t come up with the money to bail him out. GSROC was the last call before placing him on the euthanasia list.

The call was 2 days before the New Year and they needed to euthanize before 2008. There was no way the Volunteer could say no to this sweet Teddy Bear. Especially when the Animal Control Officer told the Volunteer what she knew about him.

After finding out he was safe, the Animal Control Officer took him to the exercise area to spend some time with him. When she took him back to his jail, he gave her a kiss as if he knew it was his lucky day. Sisco is very friendly, gets along with other dogs, likes to give kisses, will shake and sit. We think he would also be good with cats and children. He seems to have a gentle soul.

He is brand new and we’re still learning more about this big brown eyed Teddy Bear. In the meantime, if you would like to meet Sisco, please fill out the on-line application or you can contact

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.
