You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.

RUGBY ~4 years old. Good with older, considerate kids and large female dogs. Not good with cats or small dogs.

GSRA adopts to residents of VA, NC, and SC only.

We at GSRA never shy away from dogs that appear to be special needs. Rugby was brought into rescue after being found by animal control emaciated with a severe rear leg break, sadly the vet determined the leg was not salvageable but true to the gsd spirit Rugby has not let it bother him one bit. Rugby loves running in the yard with his foster sister, he has a high ball and prey drive. He's a great leash walker, car rider and all around calm dog when out and about. He's the perfect dog to take to breweries, dog friendly restaurants etc.

Rugby would also do well for someone wanting to train a dog to volunteer for therapy work. He's very calm, friendly but not demanding of attention. He doesn't jump up and isn't mouthy. He has ZERO mobility issues as a tripod, easily goes up and down hard wood stairs, hops in the car, runs as fast as the other gsds he's living with. His mobility is so good that people don't even notice he's missing a leg initially.

Rugby is house trained, crate trained and a super chill dude in the house. Rugby would do best as an only dog or with a female dog. Rugby cannot live with cats. Rugby would be fine with older considerate children. He would also do well in an apartment. Come meet him soon, he loves to say hello.
