Maximus and Danny

"In remembrance of Maximus who I adopted from GSGSR a little over 2-1/2 years ago. He was 7-1/2 when I adopted him, the only regret being that he did not live longer damn cancer. And also for the care and support that you gave to my new GSGSR dog, Danny. He is another great rescue on your part and that I get to share because of your organization".

“We were honored to have Sophie for almost 10 years. She was magnificent - the finest of all our Shepherds. We sorely miss the walks and squirrel chasing, and having her in our lap. Everyone in our neighbor knew Sophie. RIP at the Rainbow Bridge dear friend."

We would like to donate in memory of our best boy, Grizzly. We adopted Grizz through GSGSR in 2013. He passed in 2020. He was the best boy, who loved chasing balls and his Daddy. We’ve adopted 2 more via your organization: Peyton and Seti (formerly Freddy). They are living the good life. Attached is a photo of Grizz in his prime before the degenerative myopathy took over. Thank you.
