Age: 8 years

I love to play ball

Pete is an 11 year old boy who has spent most of his life outdoors. After spending time in a GSROC foster home, Pete has made quite the recovery.  His foster family reports he loves to play and have a blast.  Open the car door and he will hop right in, ready for his next adventure.   He has a constant doggy smile on his face now that he knows he is safe and secure.

Pete is happiest when he is home with his people and doesn’t like to be left home alone.   A family who has someone at home would be best for this boy.

We have placed Pete on a special diet and it has made such a difference. However, it is costly.   Each bag is $55.00 and he needs one every 6 weeks.  If you would like to sponsor this food for him, please send an email to

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.
