I've Had Training!Please Foster Me!

Shadow has a husky build and a coat that is silky and shiny. He was crunched in a small cage at a crowded animal shelter when our scout went to save him. Even though he wasn’t 100% shepherd, we couldn’t stand to see him lik that and we plucked him out.

We are thinking of renaming Shadow “Bubba” because that suits his personality much better. He has a lumber to his walk and either a quizzical look or a goofy grin on his face when ever you see him. Shadow is a big sucker for belly rubs and it’s funny to see him enjoying them so much—usually his tongue hangs out of his upside-down mouth! He is a character, through and through!

Shadow is good with large dogs but he is possessive of his ‘stuff’ so we do not recommend him for a home with small children or small dogs. He likes to wear his ears in a unique “bonnet” style that give him a unique look. He has recently been enrolled in a group training class, where we’re sure that he will be a stand out. If you are looking for a buddy that would just as soon take a nap with you as go for a hike, Shadow might just be your guy!

To arrange to meet Shadow, please complete the online application first and then contact 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.
