Spirit was found wandering in an area known for having many breeders. She was not wearing a collar or tags and she didn’t have a microchip. Despite our efforts, we could not find Spirit’s original family, so we promised her that we would help her find a forever home that would treasure her.

Spirit will be a medium sized girl when she matures. She is in the teenage gangly stage now but she will outgrow this. She enjoys the company of other friendly dogs and desperately wants to play. The kind person who found Spirit already had large dogs and could not keep her, although she was tempted.

Please remember that young pups are curious, active, destructive at times and always ‘busy’. Think long and hard about whether you are in a position to keep a young dog occupied and to provide the leadership and training that a young dog requires.

To arrange to meet Spirit, 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.
