Zoe is a pretty shepherd girl with a very good nature. She greets everyone with a wag and a smile, and she positively adores kids. Zoe will make a wonderful companion for someone looking for an all-around social dog–a dog that can go to Starbucks and on errands as well as for long hikes. We are calling Zoe a “California shepherd” because she has “laid back” ears that just don’t feel like standing at attention! Trust us–this trait makes her all the more endearing. She absolutely adores other dogs, and we often find her giving them kisses!

Zoe has finished nursing her babies and is ready to have a life after puppies. To arrange to meet her, please complete the online application first and then contact for more details. Zoe’s puppies are half shepherd and half handsome stranger, and they are available for adoption at

If you would like to meet Zoe, please complete the online application and an adoption counselor will contact you.

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.
