Pongo is a super sweet boy who has obviously not had a great life. We rescued him from an animal shelter where he was patiently waiting for his owner to come…an owner who never showed up. When Pongo was slated to be euthanized at the animal shelter, GSROC made room for him so that he can find his happy ending.

Pongo has immediately become one of the volunteers’ favorite dogs. He is so sweet and he loves to gaze at people with his big brown eyes. He gets along very nicely with other dogs and his first test with a cat went beautifully. We believe that Pongo is a gentle giant who wants nothing more than to be your constant companion.

Pongo has a congenital deformity of his front foot. Our vet has looked at this and while we think that Pongo may have arthritis in the foot, no surgery is recommended. We are hoping that someone wonderful will look past Pongo’s little limp and give him the doting home that he deserves to have. Won’t you please make room for him in your family so that he can be loved?

To arrange to meet Pongo, please complete the online application first and then contact Mdalescomm@aol.com 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.
