Normally, an adorable pup like Timmy would be adopted directly from an animal shelter. But sadly, Timmy didn’t have that good fortune. He is not “perfect”–he has a condition of his spine that causes him to wobble and walk clumsily. Our vets have identified a large boney mass between two vertabrae. The mass needs to come out in order for Timmy to walk wihtout discomfort and so that he can grow properly.

UPDATE 6/5/07
Timmy had his surgery & is doing great. The drs are very happy with the way things went. Timmy is expected to fully recover & be a normal pup.

Timmy is in a foster home. His foster mom reports Timmy is a very loving dog that loves to be around his people. He loves to play with other dogs. Timmy is a fantastic pup with a great nature and a profound love of Life. We are looking for a loving home so Timmy can learn to be the great dog he was always meant to be.

To arrange to meet Timmy, please complete the online application first and then contact for more information.

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.
