Maximilian, or “Max” for short is a BIG boy, weighing in at about 110 lbs. He is about 8 years old, but you wouldn’t know by looking at him!

Max was turned in by his owner to the local shelter because he kept escaping the yard. What that says to us is that Max was probably kept outside more often than not, that he got bored and went looking for someone to keep him company. Rather than secure the yard so that this senior gentleman could remain at home, his heartless owner elected to dump him at the pound instead.

Max rides well in the car. He gets along with other dogs, even small ones. He has a wonderful temperament and would probably be ok with cats if introduced properly. Max got very frightened by the fireworks on July 4, so he needs a family that can work with this when the holiday comes around every year.

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.
