Toby is a four-month-old bundle of puppiness who disguised himself as a shepherd in order to be rescued! We were alerted about a “shepherd puppy” in a crowded animal shelter, and when we arrived to find Toby, we knew that he was meant to be ours…even if he was an “almost shepherd”! Toby is cute, playful, affectionate and silly–all the great qualities that you expect from a puppy. He is likely to be a large boy, so we recommend that he get started in a basic obedience class right away.

Toby will make a wonderful addition to some lucky family who is willing to invest time into his care and training to help him grow into a proper young dog. Please think very carefully before you adopt any puppy–be sure that you are prepared for a LOT of work and probably some destructiveness.

To arrange to meet Toby, please complete the online application and then contact 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.
