Vlad is a happy, silly, energetic boy who doesn’t seem to be at all traumatized by his time spent in the animal shelter. He was picked up as a stray but never reclaimed by a loving owner, so we were glad to be able to offer him a bright new future.
Vlad LOVES kids and other dogs. He lights up when children are around and if allowed, he will give them sloppy kisses to show his admiration. Vlad will probably grow to be a middle-sized male—not too big, not too small. Did we mention that his classic markings and stature make him a Rin Tin Tin look-alike?!? Vlad will need training and leadership in order to grow into a well mannered adult shepherd. He told us he’s ready to learn and to be loved by someone special.

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.
