Skipper is a beautiful, large German Shepherd male that we suspect was purchased for a lot of money as a puppy. We think he is about 2-3 years old. He has beautiful coloring and markings, and the large head, paws and ears commonly seen in imported German dogs. Skipper needs to fill into those paws and ears though, for he was found as an underweight stray.
Luckily for Skipper, one of the rescue volunteers saw him in a shelter and made room for him in our care. He is doing well in his foster home, where he gets to play with 3 other dogs, large and small. Skipper has been around kids too and does great with them.
Skipper’s one bad habit is counter surfing — looking for something to eat when he’s hungry. Don’t leave a delicious smelling plate of food on the counter around Skipper, for he’ll just help himself! Poor guy. He probably had to scrounge around for food in his early life. We promised him that he won’t go hungry again. Once Skipper realizes that regular, healthy meals are going to be a norm in his life, his counter surfing traits will go away.

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.
