Willie came to us from a far off shelter when his time there “ran out” due to overcrowding. He is a happy and gentle guy who would love to have someone special to love. Willie has a TON of potential—he will respond beautifully to gentle leadership and patient training.

Willie will fill out to be a good sized male–probably around 90 pounds or more. Right now, he is a gangly teenager with a scrawny body and a big head, but give him a year and he will be positively stunning! Willie is 2, but he acts more like a 10 month old puppy with his clumsy ways. He needs someone kind and patient to help him learn how to walk nicely on a leash.

Willie is very affectionate and prefers to ride in the front seat of the car with his paw on your leg to make sure that you are not going away!

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.
