Mercedes arrived in very poor condition after animal control removed her (and Star, also rescued by GSROC) from a neglectful home. After several weeks of rehabilitation and lots of attention and affection from our volunteers, Mercedes is much less timid and her coat looks great. She is a gentle and sweet spirit who is grateful for every kindness that she receives. She gets along well with other dogs, and she adores kitties. She would do well in a quieter home as she just enjoys following her person around.

Mercedes is between 2 and 3 years young and she has obviously had several litters of puppies alraedy. We are determined to give her the wonderful life that she was deprived of as a puppy. Could you be the one for this beautiful girl?

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.
