Poor Sandy bears the signs of being banished to an outdoor existance. Her caramel-colored coat should be flowing and shiney, but right now it’s dry and dull. We’re working to restore Sandy to her beauty queen looks and she is grateful to be fawned over. Sandy’s beautiful shepherd ears have been ravaged by biting flies, leaving them bloody and bare, certainly painful. We see this kind of ear damage when dogs are left outdoors in dirty yards for long periods of time, or in areas near livestock, dairies, horse ranches, etc. Sandy’s ears are permanently damaged, but her rounded ears give her a very endearing look.

Because of her appearance, sweet Sandy was passed up again and again by adopters at the shelter. When it became obvious that she was in danger, we scooped Sandy into our life boat.

Sandy has just arrived so we are getting to know her better. So far, she seems to be a mellow, sweet and appreciative girl who likes large dogs but is suspicious of smaller dogs. We will update her profile shortly.




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.
