Chief is house trained and has had some obedience training. He is very protective of his home and family, as are most shepherds.
Chief and his fur-sister Amy have been a special part of a family, and are unfortunately a product of divorce. Chief is a great dog and would bring joy to whoever was to adopt him. He is an excellent listener, calm and very obedient. He is very good on a leash and loves to go for walks. He likes to play catch and run around with kids.
Chief likes the water so much that his family had to make sure he didn’t go too much as his coat did not always dry properly, resulting in a skin infection.
Chief is best with adults and older children simply because he doesn’t realize how strong he is. Chief is definitely a dominate male and was quick to assert his leadership when Amy came to be with us.

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.
