This darling boy is Freeway… And yes, he got his name because he was found stranded on a freeway median with traffic blazing by in both directions. Freeway was petrified and frozen with fear—it probably saved his life because he didn’t try to cross the lanes. We suspect that he was dumped because of the location where he was found: It would have been impossible for a dog to find its way onto this median. We got a call from a county employee asking if we could help. We are beyond full and our bank account has cob webs in it, but we just could not watch this baby’s life end in a shelter. So, Freeway is now safe with GSROC.
Now, about Freeway…Freeway is a 6-month-old fun-loving, happy go lucky fella who loves, loves, loves to play! Freeway is great with other dogs both large and small and would most likely be good with cats. Freeway is a perfect passenger and adores going “bye-bye”. Thanks to the devotion of one of our volunteers, he is quickly overcoming his fearfulness and you would never know that he had endured a traumatic experience.
When you take Freeway for a walk, he does not walk, he prances with joy and loves to stop for kisses. Freeway would be great with an active family with kids as he is a big kid himself. Freeway is also very much a puppy, and with that comes the responsibility of raising a puppy. He needs someone who is prepared to provide him with leadership, training, praise, and love.
Freeway will probably eat your shoes, chew your flowers and have a few accidents before he is housetrained. He will also give you 12 to 14 years of unconditional love. Please, please ONLY apply to make Freeway a member of your family if you can make that commitment.

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.
