Duke is a large German Shepherd male that was returned to our group after having been in his home for 5 years. Duke was born December 22, 2000, so that makes him about 5 ½ years old now. Unfortunately, his owners’ living situation changed dramatically. They could no longer care for Duke.
Duke would prefer to be the only canine king in your castle, so no other dogs please. He is loyal, trained and smart. Duke is also house trained. He learned to do his business in one section of his previous owners’ yard. He needs an owner with experience with German Shepherds, so that he can trust the leadership of the people in his home. Duke has had training, but would benefit from a refresher course. Duke has a bit of a sensitive stomach, so he gets a special diet (duck & potatoes) to help keep him happy and feeling well.
Duke has some fun quirks about him too. In his previous home, his family reported that Duke had a penchant for bubbles. Yes, bubbles. Just blow some bubbles in the air and he’ll have a grand ‘ole time trying to catch them. This is quite a sight to see. He’s even been known to chase dust particles. He’s not picky, for anything moving in the air is a game for him to run around and chase.

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.
