Maverick landed in a very distant shelter and needed a life line. Fortunately, one of our dedicated volunteers drove HOURS each way to rescue this little gem so that he can find the happy ending that he deserves.

Maverick has just arrived so we will update his profile shortly. For now, we know that he’s a typicaly bouncy, playful puppy with a lot of growing and learning to do! Puppies are cute and fun, but they are a LOT of responsibility. Please look into the future for 10-12 years to be certain that you can make a lifelong commmitment before you apply to adopt any puppy!

We are asking a $400 donation for Maverick to help pay for our special needs dogs.

To arrange to meet Maverick, please complete the online application first and then contact 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.
