Buddy is a size XL shepherd, weighing in at 115 pounds. We think that he would feel better and have better mobility if he weighed closer to 95 pounds, so we’ll be working with him on his fitness routine. Buddy is housebroken and walks nicely on a leash. He is selective about the dogs that he likes to hang out with.

Buddy can be overprotective of “his” people so we are recommending him for an adult only home. While he likes children, we feel that the activity that surrounds families with children would be too much stimulation for Buddy to understand.

Buddy lost his home when his owner moved into an apartment. He would prefer to have an active lifestyle so that he can stretch his long legs on regular walks.

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.
