Joy is our precious sweetheart. She is loyal and loving and she just happens to be astonishingly beautiful to boot. When Joy was just 11 months old, we placed her with a wonderful woman who doted on Joy and trained her well. Joy had everything that any dog could dream of–a great home, other dogs to play with, and a mommy who named her “Joy” because of how much she treasured this dear little dog.

Sadly, we received news that Joy’s mommy passed away in her home unexpectedly. Joy was the only one who was with her beloved master when she died; she alone stood watch over her mommy until help finally arrived several days later. Naturally, Joy is confused and sad over this tragic turn of events. We are seeking an extra special home for this extra special girl.

To arrange to meet Joy, please contact Maria at 714-773-5915 and complete the online application to expedite the process.




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.
