Meet our XXXL boy, Whiskey. At 115-120 lbs., Whiskey is the size of a small horse! You’ll probably never meet a German Shepherd larger than Whiskey. While taking Whiskey on walks, people have stopped and asked what kind of dog his is. Of course, our response has been “German Shepherd.” It is just that very few people have ever seen or met a German Shepherd of this size. He is a “coated,” or long-haired, German Shepherd.

The wonderful thing about Whiskey is that his heart is as big as his frame. Whiskey loves people and animals too. He was in a home with children, a cat and bunnies. Although he didn’t grow up with a dog, in his foster home, he is learning that dogs are his friends too. He seems to like the girls better than the boys :-). Whiskey will protect the kids in his home, so Whiskey will do best with an experienced owner who will teach him the ropes about what is and is not acceptable protection behavior.

Whiskey has some training, is house trained, and walks very nicely on leash. He is current on his shots, has been neutered and is ready to go to his loving, forever home. To arrange to meet this large, lovable “small horse,” then complete the online application and contact k_dekker@earthlink.net for more information.

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.
