Toby was rescued from an overcrowded animal shelter when his time ran out. With so many animals being turned in to shelters, even the youngest puppies are competing for kennel space, meaning that every dog’s days are numbered.

Toby has just arrived and we are treating him for a mild case of kennel cough (a common cold picked up in shelters) so that he can feel good as new. We believe that he is a purebred white shepherd puppy, and we can’t imagine what could have happened in his life to make him end up homeless at such a tender age.

To arrange to meet Toby, please complete the online application first and then contact We are asking a donation of $450 for Toby to help offset the veterinary costs incurred by another puppy, Teddy.

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.
