Zeus was turned in to a public shelter when his owners had ‘no time for’ him. Their loss is someone else’s extreme good fortune, as Zeus is a wonderful, loving, silly boy. When he stands on his back legs and puts his paws on your shoulders, Zeus is around 5 feet, 4 inches tall! Better have high counter tops for this curious kid, because he can put his nose at counter level!

Zeus loves children and is very gentle with them in spite of his size. He needs a family that will teach him the ins and outs of proper behavior, and one that will keep him exercised and happy. He is still in that ‘awkward teenage stage’ where he is into everything, so his adopter will need a little patience and a good sense of humor! He would love to have a canine playmate that is somewhere close to his size so that he can play wrestle and do ‘guy puppy’ stuff with!

To arrange to meet Zeus, please complete the online application first and then contact gsrtraci@yahoo.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

  • 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.
