When Barkley arrived, he was feeling under the weather with a slight case of kennel cough. He came to us from a distant shelter, where his slight case of the sniffles landed him on the euthanasia list. Our dedicated team sprang into action to save this adorable guy!

Barkley has never met a creature that he didn’t like. He plays very nicely with dogs large and small. He would be a great dog for a family that has never had a shepherd but would like to become familiar with the breed. Barkley currently shares a home with 2 little girls & 4 other dogs. Barkley walks well on a leash but he has not had any formal training. We’re sure that he will learn very quickly because he is so eager to please.

To arrange to meet Barkley, please complete the online application first and then contact Berrysheetmetal@aol.com for more details. This is a great little guy who deserves to be cherished!




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.
