GSROC has promised Remington that 2016 will be a better year.  You see, Remington was just a small puppy in 2015 when he was hit by a car and left to die by the side of the road.     The accident damaged his leg so severely, it could not be saved and needed to be amputated. He was adopted by a home that was moved by his story.  Unfortunately, they were unwilling to spend the time and energy needed to train young Remington.  Consequently, Remington has a somewhat headstrong personality and has taken it upon himself to become quite protective over his family.  He needs a strong leader to help him learn the proper behavior.

GSROC has promised Remington to find him a loving home willing to make the effort needed to help him become a wonderful adult GSD.   Remington loves people and likes to make friends.  He is active, happy and full of energy.   Like most teenagers, he often likes to have things his way.  He has a strong opinion of himself and needs an owner that enjoys the GSD personality. He is looking for guidance and a loving family to set limits for him.  He is intelligent and eager to show people just how quickly he can learn new things.

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.
