Ulysses is known as “Ulie” to his friends. This rock solid 5 year old boy is an AKC German-bred sable male with strong features, an impressive pedigree, and a proud stature. Ulie weighs in around 95 pounds but has not had a lot of leash training, so he would benefit from a basic obedience course. Because of his size and strength, we are recommending him for a home that is experienced with shepherds. If you appreciate the nobility and granduer of the German-bred shepherds, Ulie will positively take your breath away.
Ulie loves kids but he can be a little clumsy. He is not particularly good with other dogs, but he tells us that he would like to learn–no one ever taught him before! No kitties, please, for this macho man. Ulie is housebroken and very affectionate. He suffered some physical abuse at the hands of a man, so he is somewhat stand-offish with men that he doesn’t know until he can trust them. Once he knows that you will not hurt him, Yulie is a big teddy-bear baby!
Ulie lost his home when his people got divorced. He is very confused right now, as he has never been away from his family, but our volunteers are helping Ulie with the tough transition.
Ulie is in boarding. If you are an experienced shepherd owner and you have room (lots of room) in your home and your heart for a wonderful boy, please complete the online application 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 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.
