Faithful and AppreciativeI Need A Hero.

Shiloh is a real head turner. He is a large coated boy with a sound temperament. Shiloh appears to have been mistreated if not outright neglected in his previous life. This has made him quiet, reserved and even a little timid at first. However, after a few days, his trust and loyalty come out to play. He is big and mellow, but can be playful and affectionate too. He follows your lead. He uses a doggie door and is completely potty trained. He walks beautifully on a leash and ignores all distractions unless they become a threat. In those situations he will stand between you and the perceived threat and issue a warning growl. He does not lunge or bark on a leash. He lets his size speak for him. He quickly bonds to his person and will follow them around incessantly. He has a mischievous side and will “steal” any article of clothing that holds a scent. He will relocate them to a part of the yard or house where he can enjoy them later and feel close to his person. He does not chew things and is not destructive. He would be very happy with someone who works from home and can devote a substantial portion of their day with him. He will happily sit for hours with his head resting on your foot. He loves young children and happily endures the enthusiastic, if not erratic affection of a toddler.

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 In light of the rising vet care costs associated with Giardia tests and boarding at vets, we are raising our adoption donation for adult GSDs to $395.00 starting on July 1, 2021

The adoption donations for other dogs will remain the same — $475.00 for purebred puppies, $375 for mixed puppies. (On a case by case basis, e.g. senior for senior, we will place a senior for $275.00 with a senior.)

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.
