One look at this clown and you’ll know why his name is “Zipper” (or Zippy for short). He is a shepherd mixed with Rhodesian Ridgeback, and as a result, he has an adorable zipper on his back! Zipper is energetic and affectionate and he does well with dogs his own size or larger. We don’t recommend him for a home with smaller dogs or cats.

Zipper has been undergoing basic training and he has nice leash manners. He likes to greet new people with a grin and a wag! This guy will win you over in two seconds if you give him a chance!

Zipper was rescued from a crowded animal shelter when his time ran out. Our “German Shepherd Detector” was broken the day he came in so he snuck in as a wannabe, but we’re thrilled to have him!

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.
