We learned about Major from a concerned animal lover who saw a “Free to good home” ad posted on the internet. Because we know that these ads can attract some unsavory individuals who might use the “free” dog for cruel purposes, we rushed in to rescue Major. Someone’s loss is our gain because Major is a happy, loving boy who adores his people. He is especially fond of kids, but he’s very strong and a little too much for toddlers. Major could use a basic obedience class because he pulls on the leash, but he has already demonstrated to us how quickly he learns new commands.

He will make a loyal and loving companion for someone who appreciates the devotion that shepherds are legendary for. Major requires eye drops daily for a hereditary condition called pannus. Providing that he receives his daily drops, his eyesight will not diminish.

To arrange to meet Major, please complete the online application first and then contact Maria at 714-773-5915 for more information.




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.
