When King arrived, he was missing the fur on 2/3 of his body due to a bacterial infection that no one bothered to treat. He was emaciated and very uncertain about who to trust–who can blame him? Obviously, he has not had many good things happen for him in his short life. King loves the company of other friendly dogs and he seems to really perk up when he’s around them. We are looking for a home with at least one large canine brother or sister that King can take leadership from.

King is a very sweet boy who will develop into a fantastic companion with a little TLC and patience. We are working to put some meat on his bones and to help him build his trust in people. If you have an extra big heart for the hardship dogs, King is the boy for you. Please come and meet him.

To arrange to meet King, please complete the online application and then contact Mdalescomm@aol.com for more details.




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.
