Gator needs a loving home. He is good natured, robust, and pretty well mannered. Gator does not jump up on people and is very gentle.

His name is Navigator and he responds to ‘Gator. If not too distracted he will respond fairly well to the commands “sit” and “stay.”

Gator just had a bithday on July 1! He is now 4 years old.

Although Gator is completely housebroken, he would love to have a large yard to romp in and often likes to be outside. He is very social and like all shepherds, wants to be a member of the family. He forms strong attachments to his leader and wants to be with that person.

Gator loves kids, but he is big and strong at 72 lbs., so he is best suited for children about 8 and older. He loves to play retrieve-the-ball. Gator is naturally lean and very active.

Gator’s owner no longer had time for this sweet and deserving boy. We promised Gator that we would find him a forever family that would make the time for him…no matter what. Gator is current on his shots and he is neutered. To arrange to meet him, please complete the online application first and then contact Mdalescomm@aol.com for an appointment.




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.
