Age: 6 months


Neil was rescued from a high kill shelter when his time ran out. Yes, as hard as it is to believe, beautiful puppies land in frightening shelters all the time by no fault of their own. We are glad that we could help Neil thanks to the generous support of animal lovers like you.

Neil has just arrived so we are getting to know him better. At first blush, he appears to be submissive and he wanted to squish all 38 pounds of himself into his rescuer’s lap! He appears to be a ‘velcro’ dog who wants to be everywhere that his person is. We expect Neil to grow into a 70-80 pound boy.

Please check back for more info as we learn more about him. In the meantime, if you are interested in meeting Neil, pleaes 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.
