A good Samaritan found The Colonel looking hungry and confused and tried desperately to reunite him with his owner. Unfortunately, no one came forward for The Colonel, so when he had no where else to turn, a team of dedicated animal lovers pitched in to get him to the safety of our rescue. We are grateful to everyone who has helped The Colonel so far on his journey and now we are looking for a wonderful home for him to retire in.

The Colonel loves other dogs, is housebroken, and walks nicely on a leash. He is big and handsome and affectionate. We can’t understand why anyone would abandon a dog like The Colonel, who does everything in his power to be a pleaser.

The Colonel has just arrived so we are getting to know him better. We will update his profile shortly. To arrange to meet him, please complete the online application first and then contact Mdalescomm@aol.com 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.
