When we were at a distant shelter picking up another dog that was in need, the employees asked us if we could possibly take in this senior guy. Gus is approximately 7-8 year old.

Gus had been at the shelter for over a month, and because they loved him so much, they repeatedly extended his time in hopes that someone would see what a great dog he is.

A family had found him and kept him for a short time while trying to locate his family. Unfortunately, no one claimed him and they were not in a position to keep him. In the short time they fostered him, the family said he was a perfect angel with their children, gets along well with other dogs, and was already housebroken!

Senior dogs are great additions to the family, as they have already gone through all their “stages” and are ready to just be comfortable wherever they go!

If you are interested in meeting Gus, please fill out an application online.




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.
