Meet Dillon. Animal Control picked up this good looking fellow when he was found wandering the streets in the heat. At the shelter, days turned into weeks as he patiently waited to be claimed by owners who never showed up. In the meantime, shelter volunteers had fallen in love with this friendly boy, and alerted German Shepherd Rescue that his time was up. When a rescue volunteer transported him away from the shelter, Dillon lapped her face with kisses of gratitude.

We are still getting to know this darkly handsome boy with tall tan boots and amber eyes. We do know that he is affectionate and like all shepherds, craves human attention and interaction. At 4 or 5 years old, he should weigh about 65 lbs., but is underweight by 10-15 pounds. With the silly puppy stage well behind him, Dillon walks politely on a leash and leans calmly against your leg to be petted. He still loves to play, especially in water, making him a perfect poolside or beach companion.

Dillon is anxious to channel his loyalty to a family who will give him the love and attention he so deserves.

If you are interested in meeting him, please fill out the online application and contact Dforsyth@socal.rr.com for further information.

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.
