Meet our buddy, Mack, who got his name because he’s the size of a small truck. When Mack finds his forever home and regular nutritious meals, he should top 110 pounds. A very handsome traditional black and tan male, Mack has a wonderfully loving heart to match his big frame.

Mack was discovered at an overcrowded animal shelter, where he was peering out from his cage watching everyone walk by. Most people were intimidated by his immense size so they kept walking, but our volunteer was not daunted. His big brown imploring eyes reached out to her and his charms did the job from there.

Mack is currently in a foster home where he has very quickly become attached to his foster mom. He gets to spend his time with another friendly male dog, and he gets along well with all of the dogs that he’s met. Who knows? This gentle giant might even tolerate cats–we’ll soon find out. We are recommending him for a family or individual who has had experience with large, strong dogs as he can pack some power!

To arrange to meet our Mack Truck, please complete the online application first and then contact K_dekker@earthlink.net for additional 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.
