Milo is a shy and gentle little guy who deserves to have a wonderful life. One look at his face peering out from behind the bars at a crowded animal shelter and our volunteers knew that Milo had to be saved. Milo has just arrived so we are getting to know him better. The loving and dedicated volunteers of GSROC are working with Milo to help him understand that he is cherished.

We suspect that Milo will remain on the smaller side, possibly topping out around 50 pounds. Still a puppy, Milo has not yet learned how to walk on a leash…he flattens himself out like a pancake and refuses to walk but we’re working with him to build his confidence. He loves the company of other friendly dogs and he is very affectionate once he knows that he is safe. Milo loves to cuddle.

We will update Milo’s profile as we learn more about his personality. If you are interested in meeting him, please complete the online application and then contact 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 In light of the rising vet care costs associated with Giardia tests and boarding at vets, we are raising our adoption donation for adult GSDs to $395.00 starting on July 1, 2021

The adoption donations for other dogs will remain the same — $475.00 for purebred puppies, $375 for mixed puppies. (On a case by case basis, e.g. senior for senior, we will place a senior for $275.00 with a senior.)

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.
