I Need An Experienced OwnerNo cats or small dogs

3 year old Dante was facing a grim end in a high kill shelter when GSROC found him. His striking good looks and demeanor won over our volunteer staff and he is now safely in the GSROC lifeboat.

He is a big, strong guy in the prime of his life. He will thrive with an experienced owner who enjoys the GSD personality. No small dogs or cats for this boy as he also has the classic GSD prey drive. As experienced owners are aware – prey drive also translates into loving other types of doggy work, playing catch, chasing frisbees, etc. Dante would excel at agility or some type of training as he loves to work and make his owner proud of his ability.

While at GSROC he enjoyed flirting with a female shepherd and their antics were amusing. We believe he may enjoy a home with submissive female doggy companions.

If you are looking for a german shepherd with classic personality traits and gorgeous sable good looks, please consider Dante.

If you would like to meet Dante, please complete the online application and an adoption counselor will contact you.

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.
