Blitz has a sad story to tell: He was abandoned in a back yard when his owners moved. Ironically, one of the neighbors on the street where Blitz lived is a police officer with a true appreciation for shepherds. The officer asked us to step in to help Blitz when no one else would help.
Blitz is a smart, strong and athletic dog. Since Blitz is protective of his handler, he requires an experienced, alert shepherd owner that will provide him with confident and consistent attention. While we have seen Blitz enjoy the company of other confident shepherds, we do not recommend a home with small children or small pets.
Blitz loves to run and play and relax on a patch of green grass. He has a strong ball drive and enjoys a good belly rub and grooming.
He is currently enrolled in a comprehensive training class to help him learn how to manage his energy. In order to further the progress he has already made, we recommend that his new owner provide continued obedience and agility training.

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 In light of the rising vet care costs associated with Giardia tests and boarding at vets, we are raising our adoption donation for adult GSDs to $395.00 starting on July 1, 2021
The adoption donations for other dogs will remain the same — $475.00 for purebred puppies, $375 for mixed puppies. (On a case by case basis, e.g. senior for senior, we will place a senior for $275.00 with a senior.)
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.
