I've Had Training!

Doc needs a job! He is a high energy, highly intelligent boy who has already completed his Companion Dog training. He is extremely alert and responsive and he loves to work. Doc is a dog that needs to have an active caretaker or family that will hike with him, take him swimming or teach him agility. He will not be happy just waiting around at home for his family to return.

Doc’s owner has had a change in his career and he is heartsick to have to give Doc up. He has invested a tremendous amount of time, training and care in Doc. We will only consider experienced shepherd owners as adopters of Doc as he really needs someone who understands how this breed ‘ticks’.

To arrange to meet Doc, please complete the online application first and then contact for more information. We will be asking a minimum $400.00 adoption donation for Doc and if you can give more, we encourage it as it will be directed to the medical fund for Rocky II.

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.
