Age: 18 months

We learned about Winchester from concerned kennel workers at a local animal shelter. This sweet-natured boy arrived as a stray with his sister, Izzy. We are so sad to know that someone could be so cruel as to shoot a beautiful dog, but we have promised Winchester that he will soon see the brighter side of life.

Winchester will need to undergo surgery this week to repair his leg. We suspect that he will have to wear a splint for some time to help the healing process. As we learn more about Winchester we will update his profile. We know that he is deeply bonded to his sister, Izzy, who loves to give him kisses and tell him that everything is going to be okay.

We need your help to raise $1300 to help Winchester feel better! Your tax deductible donation in any amount will go a long way toward this expensive surgery!

Winnie is the sweetest boy that you could ever hope to meet. He will remain on the smaller side–probably not growing to be more than 50 pounds. He is a “leaner” who loves to work his charms on you! To arrange to meet Winchester, please complete the online application first 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.
