This magnificent looking 4 year old dude is looking for a warm dry home to call his own. After spending most of his life chained during the day at an auto parts yard, and left loose and alone there at night to watch the property, don’t you think it’s time he had someone who treasures him?

Hero is sweet, gentle and well behaved. He likes kids and other dogs, including small ones. He has had obedience training, and walks like a dream on leash.

A little on the heavy side right now at 100 lbs, but, once he gets the walks and exercise from his new forever family, Hero should weigh in at about 90 lbs.

Hero really needs a hero right now, is that you?

Hero is currently in boarding while he awaits a forever home. Please complete 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.
