One of our volunteers found Thummper staggering down the sidewalk in obvious pain after being hit by a car. He was rushed to our vet, where he was given much needed care and attention. It appeared as though Thummper may have been on his own for some time prior to the accident. Unfortunately, he did not have a collar, tag or microchip. Efforts were made to determine if he had a family, but no one responded.

Thummper injured his hip during his accident, but thankfully, did not break any bones. After a couple of days of treatement at our vet, he was gave him a clean bill of health and sent off to our care to recuperate.

Initially, Thummper’s injury made it difficult for him to walk comfortably, but he now walks with much greater ease and much less discomfort. He is approximately 7 years old and weighs between 50 & 55 lbs. Thummper has a very sweet and calm disposition. He loves everyone and would love nothing better than to curl up next to you on the couch and continue his convalescence. Thummper is currently in boarding and would surely prefer the warmth and security of a stable home. He has tremendous best-friend potential – could that special person be you?

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.
