Poor little Marlo was overwhelmed by all of the noises, smells and bigger dogs at the crowded city animal shelter. We found him hiding at the back of his cage wondering why his family wasn’t coming for him.

Marlo is coming out of his shell and we expect him to be a normal, happy-go-lucky puppy. He is in a foster home with other dogs and cats and he has already made a best friend in Gunner. Puppies are a LOT of work and require a lot of patience! They chew your shoes, your TV remotes, your furniture, your sunglasses and your sprinklers. Before you apply to adopt, please be sure that you have enough time and fortitude to invest in raising a puppy. You will be rewarded with years of loyal devotion, but it takes a commitment on your part to raise your puppy properly.

Marlo is microchipped, vaccinated, dewormed and neutered.

To arrange to meet Marlo, please complete the online application first and then contact Berrysheetmetal@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.
