As we’ve all too often, beautiful, devoted dogs like Alexa get passed over time and time again in the public shelters because they are not frisky puppies or gangly teenagers. Yet dogs like Alexa are true finds because they have outgrown the mischievous and destructive stages and have settled into being well mannered companions that are truly grateful for being rescued.

Alexa has a medium build and a beautiful black and tan coat. She appears to have had good care at some time in her past life, so we can’t understand how she landed in a public shelter alone and afraid. As we get to know her, we will update her bio.

To arrange to meet Alexa, please complete the online application and then contact Johnandebhancock@aol.com for more details.




Adoption Application If you are interested in adopting one of our dogs, you may submit an application online or via fax. If you choose to send a fax, please download the Adoption Application here in PDF format; fill it out and sign it. You can fax it to us at 714-773-9430.

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.
