At the animal shelter, Jeter demonstrated the sort of ‘spinning’ behavior that suggests extreme cage stress, just like caged wild animals experience in zoos. He spun ’round and ’round in his cramped cage until he injured his tail. Fortunately, Jeter is on the mend now, and we’re working with him on redirecting his focus. He would benefit tremendously from a foster home with a leader who could continue to work with him.

Jeter is young and can overcome this with the help of someone who understands the physical and mental needs of a shepherd. He will do best in an adult only home, and may wish to be the only dog—soon we will introduce him to some cute female shepherds to see what he thinks of them.

As we learn more about Jeter, we will update his profile. If you are looking to really make a difference for a dog that could be overlooked by other prospective adopters, consider fostering or sponsoring Jeter to give him the life that he deserves.

To arrange to meet Jeter, please complete the online application first and then contact for more information.

If you would like to meet Jeter, please complete the online application and an adoption counselor will contact you.

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.
