Aspen came in with Kodie and Klondike, two other large white shepherds. Kodie, Klondike and Aspen lost their home when their family moved and didn’t elect to take them. A very brave 16 year old girl intervened to make sure that these sweet dogs were not abandoned! The dogs had been kept in very bad conditions in a horse barn and Aspen was forced to have litter after a litter during her short life.

We have been told by the previous owner that Aspen is not good with small dogs, cats or other small animals. However, she appears to be very good with dogs her own size, especially her two buddies.

Aspen can be a little jealous of other female dogs so we recommend her for a home with Kodie, or as an only dog. To arrange to meet her, please complete the online application first and then contact Mdalescomm@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.
