Ricco and his pal Shep lost their home when their owner went to jail. They were left alone in a back yard of a rental until a kind property manager intervened on their behalf and got them to safety. Ricco is 2 years old and very happy-go-lucky. He would prefer to have a home with another large dog to play with since he has been accustomed to living with Shep, and we have observed that he is best when meeting new female dogs. Shep has been lucky enough to find his forever home, so now we want Ricco to enjoy the same happiness. If you’re looking for someone active and energetic, Ricoo is your boy.

Ricco walks nicely on a leash, and he’s a favorite of our walking team! Please come out and meet this sweet bubba of a guy–he might just steal your heart.

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

  • 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.
