Caesar’s story breaks our hearts. This huge boy has been waiting years for his happy ending to come, but year after year, he has been disappointed. Caesar was one of 112 dogs kept in a remote compound in the desert by someone who meant well but couldn’t care for all of the dogs properly. This big bubba of a dog weighs in around 135 pounds and appears to get along well with other large dogs. Recently, he made the 3 hour drive to safety riding with two other dogs on a fluffy blanket. All of the dogs were so grateful to be free from their confinement that no cross words were spoken during the entire journey. Throughout the ride, Caesar gave his rescuers kisses of gratitude and lots of enthusiastic handshakes.

As we get to know Caesar and learn more about his original background, we will update his bio. Preliminarily, we would not recommend him for a home with toddlers simply because he does not know his own strength. We suspect that he would take exception to kitties, but we will test our theory soon.

To learn more about Caesar, please complete the online application first and then contact Mdalescomm@aol.com for more details. Please note that Caesar has suffered a great deal of loneliness in his life, so we are looking for a family that can show him what it’s like to truly 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.
