Webber is a gorgeous black shepherd, approximately 14 months old. He was found running stray by a young lady, who just happened to be the daughter of an employee of the local shelter!
Webber had staples along his spine, and scars on his face, but unfortunately we don’t know what happened to him because he’s not talking! He has huge webbed feet (Hence his name), and his front left paw has either grown improperly from lack of nutrition, or was a birth defect.
This does not slow down Webber! He is still all puppy and loves to play and have fun.
He has improved by leaps and bounds since being in his GSROC foster home. He can now climb over logs in the park and even climb up stairs! Nothing really stops him anymore.
Webber has a laid back manner, he likes other dogs and ignores the cats in his foster home. He loves being part of a pack and has made friends with all the dogs in his foster home. Even the cranky maltese thinks he is ok.
Webber gets along with children, although he has never met any really young ones. However, the children he does know – ages 10 and over are great pals.
Webber was seen by our vet and it has been determined he has some orthopedic issues that will need to be corrected. Whoever was responsible for bringing Webber’s litter into the world had no concern for health and genetics, as most of Webber’s joints are very mal-formed.
Weber went to see a specialist, It was determined that he has Panostitis in his back leg, and may outgrow this. One of his back legs is already straining his cruciate ligament which might need knee surgery down the road. Surprisingly, his hips are very good!
Weber’s biggest problem is that both his elbows have dysplasia, which will likely need surgery in the future. His front left paw has carpal hyperextension.

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 Our adoption donation is minimum $350.00 plus $25.00 for microchip for adult dogs and $450 plus $25.00 microchip for puppies 1 year and under. 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.
