This handsome big guy is Kodiak. Kodi to his friends… Kodi got his name because he is a big lovable bear. GSROC received dozens of calls and emails about a big, beautiful white German Shepherd in a very high kill shelter. As you can see from his pictures Kodi ADORES everyone.

He gave kisses to the vet as he was being examined, as if to say “Thank you for helping me” He gave kisses to his rescuer and anyone else who came close enough. He was a huge hit with some small children in the vets waiting room and laid down to play with a 6 pound terrier.

Kodi could stand to lose a few pounds, and we are working on that. He is a love bug who is just looking for a quiet place to reside during his ‘golden years’.

Kodi is a very mellow guy and more football watching couch potato than jogging partner. Kodi will stay right by your side and just wants to please. Kodi loves to go for car rides and is a perfect gentleman while doing so. He is also a joy to walk. If you didn’t see him on the other end, you wouldn’t even know he was there, he stays perfectly by your side. He’s got a little arthritis in his hips (but who doesn’t?) but he doesn’t let this slow him down too much.

Kodi is about 8 years old and gets along with other large dogs as long as they are respectful of his seniority and not too bouncy. His ideal home would be with a retired person or couple who would shower him with the attention that he deserves.

If you have room in your home and your heart for this very special big bubba boy, please call Shawn at 714/206-9002 or email at

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.
