Max came to us from an abusive situation where he was kicked by a man. As a result of the bad situation that he was in, Max is suspeicious and fearful of men. He is looking for a loving woman-only home with no children. In return for love and security, Max will provide a lifetime of companionship and loyalty, not to mention protection. Max is extremely intelligent and is looking for someone who understands the sensitive and complex nature of German Shepherds. He prefers to be the only dog and a single woman would be the perfect mommy for this special boy.

Max is neutered, fully vaccinated and microchipped. Max is a large dog and should fill out to about 100 lbs.

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.
