Bruno II was abandoned by his young owner at a relative’s house. Yet another case of someone who did not realize that a dog is a life long commitment, not just a weekend of fun. Now Bruno is losing the only home he has ever known.

Bruno II is a gorgeous boy who likes other big dogs. He walks well on a leash and turns heads when he walks by. He was non reactive when he saw other large dogs walk past him. Bruno II is no marshmallow however, He appears to have some alpha tendencies. When he met a gentle female, he was very polite but also let her know he liked to be the leader.  Small dogs are not Bruno II’s cup of tea.

He likes car rides and settles right down to enjoy the trip with you.   He is housebroken and obedience trained.

Bruno II is eager to find someone who will provide him with love and security. He appreciates structure and guidance and is comfortable knowing his place in the pack. This boy has so much love to give – all he has to do is find someone to return the favor.

About German Shepherd Rescue of Orange County

About Our Rescue Group...

German Shepherd Rescue of Orange County is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization that rescues, rehabilitates, and rehomes purebred German Shepherd Dogs from all over Southern California. Approximately 50% of our dogs come directly from owners who can no longer keep them for one reason or another. The other 50% of our dogs come from high-kill shelters where they have been forgotten or relinquished by their former owners.

Come Meet Our Pets...

At any given time, we have more than 75 purebred shepherds in our care. Ages range from the youngest puppies to distinguished senior dogs, with the most common ages being 2-3 years old. We typically have all colors of shepherds to choose from, from the traditional black and tan, to pure black shepherds and bi-colors, to all- white purebred shepherds. Volunteers work hard to match prospective adopters with the dogs that best meet their lifestyles, experience levels, and needs.

Please check out our web site at for the location of adoption events and fundraisers that we will be attending throughout Orange, Los Angeles, Riverside, and San Diego counties.

Our Adoption Process...

The process begins when you complete an online or in-person Adoption Application. The information that you provide allows us to learn about your expectations and experience level so that we can help you choose the right canine companion for your family. Completing the Application does not obligate you to adopt a dog from us, nor does it ensure that your request will be approved. Please note that due to the logistical challenges and our limited resources, we do not adopt dogs outside of the Southern California area.

Once you submit your Application, an experienced Adoption Counselor will contact you to talk to you personally. From there, we will schedule a Home visit to help you to ensure that the environment is safe for a curious, intelligent, large-breed dog.

Because we are funded entirely by donations, at the time of your adoption, a tax-deductible donation (minimum $350 + $25.microchip fee) will be requested. These fees will go 100% to assist the dogs in need. There are no paid staff members.
