Aren't I cute?UPDATED BIO!
This sweet girl may be a little puppy, but she has quite the personality. Playful and happy, her foster mom calls her a “little ray of sunshine!” She is sweet and cuddly but has quite the personality too.
TJ believes everyone will love her – after all who could resist her sweet face? She made friends with the dogs in her foster family, both large and small. She greeted the people in foster family with the firm belief that they would adore her immediately. This girl knows how to work it.
TJ always keeps an eye out attention. If her siblings are getting attention, TJ immediately sidles over to get her share as well. As she is a young puppy TJ can go from zero to 60 in a blink of an eye and vice versa. This girl is fast! She is actively working to master her potty training skills and has just about mastered her leash skills as well. She is very quick and loves to learn new things. She loves to hang out with the teens in her foster home, so she can be “one of the gang.”
As cute as this girl is, TJ is a Belgian Malinois and therefore she requires an experienced home, familiar with strong, confident dogs. She is not the right dog for the novice dog owner or one unfamiliar with the Belgian Malinois breed.
Teraji thrives on challenges and learning new things. Consistent training and patience are a must to help her develop into the wonderful adult dog she is destined to be. She needs a home that will commit to working with her on her obedience training. She is so eager to learn. All she needs is someone to show her the way.
Please remember, while puppies are very cute and endearing, they need training and love to become wonderful adults. They are cute and cuddly but also full of energy. It is a life long commitment and one that needs to be carefully thought out. As cute as they are – puppies demand a large investment of time, patience, and training. They are inquisitive, have endless energy and get into just about everything.
If you are not willing to invest the time and training to ensure your puppy matures into the wonderful dog – then please consider an older 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 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.
