Tessa has the look and manner of an aristocrat. She has a beautiful flowing coat the will be even more glorious as we provide her with a good diet and plenty of exercise. Tessa is good with other dogs her own size and we suspect that she would be fine with kitties. As we learn more about her, we will update her profile. Please check back for more details soon.

Tessa was rescued from a crowded animal shelter on a day when there were 8 purebred German Shepherds in that shelter alone. She was one of the lucky ones who found freedom with our rescue. Now, we are looking for a wonderful family to make her dreams come true. Could it be yours?

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.
