I Play Well With Others!UPDATED BIO!

Derek landed in a crowded shelter with nowhere to turn.  GSROC stepped in to offer him a chance at a new life.

He’s a happy guy who likes to romp and play. His friendly, sunny personality is making him a volunteer favorite.  He knows how important good doggy manners are so he is busily working on his leash skills so he can impress potential new friends.   He has already mastered some basic commands and is ready to learn more.

Derek likes to play with other friendly dogs.  He sees life as full of fun and figures so do the other dogs he meets.

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.
