Size XXL!Volunteer Favorite!

Pauli is approximately 1 year old and lost his home when his owner decided he was no longer interested in him. Pauli got along well with the older GSD in the home and tried to play with him at many opportunities. The older GSD was not interested in his puppy antics but that didn’t dim Pauli’s happy personality.

This young guy is already quite big and very smart. He knows how to sit, how to shake hands and he walks well on a leash. HIs family says he has a very sweet nature. Be prepared though, he is going to be a very big guy!

Pauli has the potential to be your best friend – all he needs is a chance. He is so bewildered by the loss of his home…he has no idea what happened.

Pauli likes other dogs and has a sweet, friendly nature when meeting them. He likes to give kisses to new people he meets and really enjoys it when you give him praise and attention.

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.
