German Shepherd Rescue Of Orange County's Puppies
Dolce

Dolce

Dolce is a high energy, spirited girl, approximately 18 months old. She is approximately 60 pounds with classic beauty. Dolce prefers not to share your affection with any other dogs or cats -- Dolce is not sure how she ended up in a scary high kill shelter but she's happy that she's not there any longer. She is looking for a loving family that will give her a forever home. Her ideal family will keep her teenage mind and body active and wishes to have only one dog. She has tremendous potential in the hands of someone who loves and appreciates spunky shepherds. Dolce needs a high fence as she is agile and will go exploring if she is bored! Dolce has had extensive training and is a great companion dog if you are looking for only one dog in your family. No small dogs or kitties for this diva, please! We are asking a $300 adoption donation plus $25 donation for microchip fee. If you are interested in meeting Dolce please complete an online adoption application first and then contact KKannen@hjklawfirm.com and our site is: http://www.gsroc.org/

Luka

Luka

Luka came all the way from Hong Kong to find happiness in the US. He has had a hard life and deserves to be appreciated -- Luka comes from an affiliated rescue group in China. Luka's owner belonged to an ethnic group called the Tankas or Boat people. Tankas live on junks(fishing boats) along the coastal area of southern China. In Luka's case, he was the guard dog on a fishing boat that was berthed at a fishing port. One sad day on August 19 2009, Luka's owner decided to put down Luka because, according to the owner, Luka was frightening some people. The owner walked all the way from the port to the nearby government pound - a 30 minute walk, uphill all the way. Luka was noted lagging behind the man,walking very slowly. In retrospect, it was a sad scene as it was supposedly the last walk for Luka. The owner had Luka's mouth tightly bound with a plastic cable tie - Luka was obviously stressed. Fortunately for Luka, a kind volunteer intercepted the death row walk and intervened on Luka's behalf. Luka spent the first few days at the SPCA to get neutered / hip x-ray / routine checkup / and observation. During his stay there, one of the staff walked Luka everyday at the nearby dog park which is next to the harbour. Apparently, Luka would stare at the harbor and was oblivious to everything around him. Understandably, Luka has been reluctant to trust those he does not know. After spending much time aclimating Luka to his new environment in the United States, we have found him to be a loving, "leaner". Luka knows basic commands and walks well on a lead. He yearns for love and affection. Luka needs an experienced shepherd owners only who understands their sensitive nature - no children. If you are interested in meeting him, please complete an application online. Our site is: http://www.gsroc.org/

Dahlia

Dahlia

Sweet Dahlia is a love bug through and through! She is a pleaser with a personality of labrador. She enjoys the company of other dogs but her true love is being close to her people! -- Dahlia is between 3-4 years young. She gave birth to a litter of puppies in a crowded animal shelter and didn't care much for her motherly duties. She was much more interested in playing! We promised Dahlia that we would find her a great family that will appreciate her outgoing nature. Dahlia is great around children, adults, and other dogs, but no kitties, please. She's quiet, housebroken and she walks beautifully on a leash. Dahlia is an all around great family dog who is longing to be someone's special girl. She does a happy dance of joy when she sees volunteers that she recognizes, and we want to see her dancing with happiness over a great new home. If you want a dog that you can take everywhere with you, Dahlia is your girl! She has a smile for everyone that she meets! We are asking a $350 adoption donation for Dahlia plus $25 donation for microchip fee. Donations are tax deductible and all proceeds go back to allow us to save more dogs. We have no paid staff! To arrange to meet Dahlia, please complete the online application first and then contact Mdalescomm@aol.com for more details. Our site is: http://www.gsroc.org/

Hope

Hope

Hope is a lovely shepherd girl with a soft personality. Her sweet nature set her apart from all of the other dogs at the animal shelter and brought her to the attention of an alert volunteer -- Hope has a great disposition and a beautiful, soft coat. She has obviously been used for breeding as her body bears the signs. Hope arrived in poor condition with an upper respiratory infection and our volunteers have been working very hard to help her regain her strength and beauty. She is improving every day -- Hope is surely younger than the earlier estimate of 5-years, given by a shelter worker, when Hope was first taken in, ill and neglected. She has the healthy teeth and pink belly of a young adult female. Clearly a very resilient dog both physically and emotionally, she is a beloved guest in her foster home where she is healthy and athletic. She trusts people and is beautifully mannered in the house. She has progressed in her leash behaviors so that she can now sit, lie down, and stay. She can even heel, with reminders. She is obedient and affectionate, and has a strong playful streak. Would you like a loyal, obedient dog, who has also proven to be a good watchdog? Hope might be your girl. She would do well with an active person or family. She is 75 pounds of muscle and good humor (a great combination!) and would love to be someone’s personal trainer! Her coat is dense dark fur, sort of like she’s wearing mink! She appears to NOT be comfortable around children, but has made good friends with dog-savvy adults. In GSROC care, she has had friendships with a couple of smaller male dogs, and they love playing together. We are asking a $300 adoption donation plus $25 donation for microchip fee. To arrange to meet Hope, please complete the online application first and then an adoption counselor will be in touch with you. Our site is: http://www.gsroc.org/

Tux

Tux

Tux was among 200 dogs living on the property of an animal "hoarder" who has been found guilty and is serving jail time. Thanks to our devoted volunteers, Tux has been restored to a happy boy! -- Thanks to a team effort among rescue groups, Tux is ready for a new start. We have no way of knowing how long Tux was living in the terrible setting because the hoarder did not keep accurate records. When we got him, he was filthy and did not make eye contact with volunteers at all. It was as if his spirit was broken. The volunteers of GSROC have invested many hours in helping Tux learn to trust again. Their devotion and love have paid off and Tux is flourishing! He's a solid 85 pound boy who loves to play wrestle. He needs a physically strong handler, but someone who is not heavy-handed in any way. Tux responds beautifully to leadership and he knows many commands. He is stunning to look at and his beauty is all the greater because of the sad start that he suffered. Tux plays a little too rough for most other dogs so we suspect that he would prefer to be the only dog in the family--certainly the only King in the castle, although he might consider a harem of female dogs his own size... To learn more about Tux, to adopt, or to foster him, please complete the online application first and then contact Mdalescomm@aol.com and our site is: http://www.gsroc.org/

Schultz

Schultz

Schultz is a gorgeous 2 year old male who was found running the streets by a police officer. He is very friendly and would enjoy an active household. Schultz knows some basic commands -- Schultz was found by a compassionate police officer when he got a call of a stray running loose in the city. Instead of waiting for animal control to arrive, he took matters into his own hands and caught the dog. Schultz did not hesitate to hop right into the back seat of his patrol car and assume the role of "K9"! After all attempts to find the owner were diminished, the officer contacted the rescue and informed us of his plight. He wanted to make sure this young dog that he was so fond of was going to be placed in a good, loving home, and requested that he be taken into the safety net of GSROC. Schultz is a classic male, approximately 2 years young, and is in good health. He needs to learns some manners on the leash, but rides exceptionally well in the car! He is a leaner, and will bond to his people very quickly. Schultz also appears to be very athletic, and he likes to give doggie "hugs". If you're a jogger, this is your boy!!! Schultz has expressed that he is not fond of small dogs and we believe he feels the same way about cats. He is also picky about the larger dogs that he meets. He has an extremely high prey drive, and needs an active household to keep him busy so he stays out of trouble! We are asking a $300 adoption donation for Schultz plus $25 donation for microchip fee. If you are interested in meeting him, please complete an application online and contact chowski681@yahoo.com for more information and our site is: http://www.gsroc.org/

Bowie

Bowie

Bowie was dodging traffic on a main street in Los Angeles when an eagle-eyed animal lover rushed to his rescue. He is approximately 1 year old and very appreciative! -- Bowie is a shepherd/husky mix who will remain on the smaller side. He has a gentle temperament and enjoys the company of other friendly dogs very much. His best buddy is Brody---they run and play together all of the time! Bowie says no to cats, that's for sure, but a playful dog his own size or larger would be great for this guy. Bowie has been waiting a long time because he is not a "traditional" shepherd. What he lacks in purebred lines he makes up for in character and affection, so please don't overlook our sweet Bowie when you are considering a new family member. Even better, consider adopting Bowie AND his buddy Brady! Double the fun! The minimum adoption donation for Bowie is $300 plus $25 for his microchip fee. This donation will go toward assisting our orphan dogs with medical needs. To arrange to meet Bowie, please complete the online application first and then contact berrysheetmetal@aol.com for more details and our site is: http://www.gsroc.org/

Rosie

Rosie

Rosie is a 3 year old coated shepherd who is looking for love! She is an active, affectionate girl with amazing potential -- Rosie is happy, energetic and loyal. If you are too, consider this beautiful coated shepherd. Rosie loves most all people, but she is fussy about the company of other dogs and cats. With proper training and desensitization, this can be overcome. Rosie will thrive with in active home. Do you hike or jog? Rosie would love to be your training partner. She has had basic training, but would benefit from a quick refresher course. We hate to see a smart and active dog like Rosie in a dog kennel waiting for her home. Like most shepherds, she will blossom in a stable and stimulating environment. Can you provide that gift to this beautiful girl? We are asking $300 adoption donation for Rosie plus $25 donation for microchip fee. To ask questions or to arrange a meet & greet with Rosie, please contact Johnandebhancock@aol.com and complete an application online and our site is: http://www.gsroc.org/

LeeAnn

LeeAnn

LeeAnn is a beautiful purebred sable female, approximately 3 years young. She is a German import with a German breeding tatoo in her ear. LeeAnn will remain on the small side -- LeeAnn was slated to be put to sleep at an overcrowded animal shelter by no fault of her own. We rushed in to save her on her last day. When you look at LeeAnn, it's obvious that she comes from German or Czech Shepherd working lines. She has a small, compact body and a sleek sable coat. LeeAnn will not grow beyond 65 pounds---she's solid. LeeAnn needs a gentle and quiet home with no kitties. She would prefer to be the only dog to have your affection because she is very sensitive. However, she does get along with other dogs if properly introduced. We think that LeeAnn would do very well in some sort of directed activity, such as herding or agilty as she has a very bright mind. She is a "velcro" dog that likes to be with you at all times. LeeAnn would be wonderful for a single person or a retired couple who want a dog that can soak up all of the love they have to give! We can't say enough wonderful things about our special girl. Maybe you are not ready to adopt at this time---please consider sponsoring a shepherd like LeeAnn who needs you. To arrange to meet LeeAnn, please complete the online application first and then contact Mdalescomm@aol.com and our site is: http://www.gsroc.org/

Joey

Joey

Joey is a 6 month old cutie-patootie who was rescued when he was just days old. He has been raised around other dogs and plenty of humans! Joey is an easy-going guy who will remain small -- Joey is 50% German Shepherd and 50% something cute! He will remain on the smaller side and they has short legs. We suspect that daddy dog might have been a doxie or corgi, perhaps? Joey is crate trained and he sits for treats! He knows how to walk on a leash and would love a walking buddy. If you are looking for German Shepherd spirit in a smaller package, come meet our Joey Boy! To arrange to meet this adorable pup, please complete the online application first and then contact berrysheetmetal@aol.com for more details and our site is: http://www.gsroc.org/

Midas

Midas

Midas is a beautiful and sweet guy. His coat is the color of golden wheat in the sunshine, and his disposition is sunny as well. Midas is a medium-sized guy approximately 2 years old -- Midas is a teenager with a loving heart. He would enjoy having another friendly dog to play with. Midas has just arrived so we are getting to know him better. Our hunch is that he would do very well with children--we will introduce him to some children this weekend. Midas is the perfect size for a townhome or condo as he will remain around 55-60 pounds. This golden boy is a diamond in the 'ruff'---eager to have someone mold him into a wonderful adult shepherd through loving leadership and patience. As we learn more about Midas we will update his profile. Please come out and visit him at our adoption event this weekend! If you are interested in adopting Midas, please complete the online application first and then an adoption counselor will get back to you. Our site is: http://www.gsroc.org/

Gypsy is a petite and friendly 7 year old girl who loves kids and adults, is laid back and esay going -- Gypsy is on the small side---approximately 50 pounds. She has a rich reddish coat and a hint of a black saddle. Gypsy loves to give kisses to everyone that she meets! She follows her canine foster brother everywhere around the house and she is housebroken. She is great with kids. She doesn't especially care for small dogs. Gypsy walks well on a leash and is confident. She bonds very quickly and it's obvious that she is eager to find a special person or family so that she can 'belong'. Gypsy is svelte and fit!! She will make anyone proud. At approximately 50 pounds Gypsy can hike and walk with the best of them, yet still calm right down to enjoy simple time at home with her family by the TV or BBQ. She has a rich reddish coat and a hint of a black saddle. Gypsy loves to give kisses to everyone that she meets! She follows her canine foster brother around the house and she is housebroken. She is great with kids! She gets no award for kitty kindness, but has such a desire to please that some good socialization training will help.

Foxy

Foxy

Foxy is a smaller 2 year old who was rescued from the mean streets of LA. She had a tough life, but with care and good food, she is looking very "foxy"! -- Foxy is a red-haired beauty on the smaller side. She has exotic looks very much like those of a fox, hence her name. She is the perfect size for a condo or townhome, probably weighing around 50 pounds. She walks very nicely on a leash--no pulling. She loves the ball, and any affection that she is given really makes her beam with joy. Foxy gets along with dogs her own size. At this point, we don't recommend her for a home with cats or small dogs, but she is still in training and learning very quickly, sho who knows? Foxy is a loving girl who gets passed over again and again because she is not a "thoroughbred", but the truth is that she is a very sweet and happy girl.

Milo

Milo

Milo almost became a freeway victim, until a good samaritan stopped to help this beautiful young dog... -- "I’m Milo and was hit by a car on the highway and left to die. Thankfully a nice person risked their life and got out of their car on the busy freeway to save me. I was rushed to the vet - I was bleeding and my leg was dangling from my body. The GSROC volunteers helped me have surgery and a plate was put in to save my leg. Doc says I’ll be good as knew soon and back to my spunky 3 year old self. Donations are urgently needed as the surgery estimate was over $3000. If you can please send a donation to help with my medical expenses, I will be forever grateful." Milo is recovering nicely in his foster home. He will enjoy a normal life once his leg mends, but he will never be a marathon runner. He’s 65 lbs, neutered, up to date on shots, microchipped, good with other dogs and ready for some lovin’! He was a favorite of the vet staff because of his sweet nature! To arrange to meet our sweet Milo, please complete the online application first and then contact maryfranz@charter.net for more details and our site is: http://www.gsroc.org/
