I Need An Experienced OwnerI donated blood to a police K9!

Dylan is a young German shepherd who came to a distant shelter as a stray. It was clear from day one that Dylan had not had much experience outside of a backyard. He had no leash skills and other dogs were alien to him.

Because Dylan was a big shepherd with no training or dog social skills he was identified as unadoptable at the shelter. If GSROC had not taken him, this beautiful dog would have been destroyed.

Fortunately, GSROC did save Dylan and a nearby kennel offered to board and train him.

Today Dylan is a big, confident dog who is ready to find his life-long home. Being a very strong and recently neutered shepherd, he needs a person who can be top dog, though Dylan has a very gentle side. Dylan is affectionate with people and would do best in a home that wants only one dog.

Before now, Dylan hadn’t had any obedience training. However, he is responsive and eager to learn. Dylan is handsome, confident and lovable. He will make a shepherd-savvy owner extremely happy.

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.
