Hi! My name is Rosabelle, and I am a very sweet and stunning GSD who got a rough start in life. My previous owners bred me, took my puppies, and dumped me at a shelter with my male GSD companion. I was very sick and only 53 pounds, just skin and bones. I thought I wasn’t going to make it, but the angels at SGSR came to my rescue. I’ve come a long way in a short amount of time, and now I’m looking better than ever (weighing in at almost 80 pounds) and ready for my forever home.

I’m just a young girl (at about 2 years of age) and have a lot of energy, which I love to burn off by going everywhere with my foster family and wresting and running with my foster brother, an SGSR alum. Although I can get a little rough sometimes, we play great together because I usually let him think he’s in charge, at least most of the time. I would love to have another energetic, big dog companion because rough and tumble play makes me so happy. A good-sized yard with a 6-foot fence is also a must, so I don’t wander away to find new friends, as I have done in the past.

I am so happy to be living inside of a house now instead of outside or in a shelter and want to be a good housemate. I’m not terribly clingy, but I do need to know where all of my family members (furry ones included) are at all times and am sad when we are separated. I really don’t need my crate (although I will go in reluctantly if asked) because I am housebroken and am learning basic commands, including how to heel on a leash, which has been a bit of a struggle, to be honest. My foster parents say I am naturally an amazing girl, but I could be even better with a little more obedience training. They also say that I need to curb my prey drive, whatever that means. All I know is that I really want to chase any small creatures that I see, so it’s probably best for me to find a home without young children, cats, or other small beings. 

 Everyone I meet falls in love with me right away. How could they not? I’m pretty much the sweetest girl ever! I just want to give and receive love and be an active member of the family. I even love strangers. When I see people on the street, I just want to run up, give them kisses, and get love in return. I’m not sure what a therapy dog is, but many people have said that, because of my love for people and tolerant nature, I should try out a few training classes to see if it might be a good fit.

If you are willing to work with me and want an active and loving companion, please fill out an adoption application and come meet me near my foster home in Virginia Beach, VA. Once you do, you’ll understand how amazing I am and why everyone falls in love me.

Our adoption process consists of a telephone interview, a call to your veterinarian and a home visit. If you have any questions about the adoption process please contact .
