Who would abandon a magnificent creature like Stoly to fend for himself in the wilderness? That’s what we keep asking ourselves when we look at this gigantic teddy bear dog. Stoly was found wandering in a deserted canyon, wearing only a choke chain. Despite our efforts to locate his owner, no one has stepped forward. We suspect that he was dumped by an uncaring person, and we have promised Stoly that we will find him an extra extra happy ending.

Although massive in size, Stoly is well behaved, reserved and gentle. He knows his basic commands and we believe that he is housebroken, although he loves to spend time outside. To arrange to meet Stoly, please complete the online application first and then contact Shawngsdrescue@aol.com or call 714-206-9002 for more information.

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.
