Amazing German Shepherd Mix, 5, For Active, Loving Family in El Cajon, CA

Hi, My name is Rosco!

There is a $75 adoption/rehoming fee.

If you are looking for a big dog in a smaller package, I am the one! I am a very handsome mix of German Shepherd and Cattle Dog, with a gorgeous black and tan coat, and big, perky German Shepherd ears.

I am just 5 years old and weigh only 30 pounds. I am very healthy, neutered, up to date on my shots, crate trained and house broken. I am such a good boy! I currently live with my owners in El Cajon, CA.

I am shy when I first meet people. Once I get to know you, I am the most loving dog you will ever meet. I put the “D” in devotion. I love to snuggle, but I am also a huge fan of getting out in wide open spaces and running. I just love the feel of the wind in my ears and the sun on my back.

I am good with children, and I get along very well with other dogs – and even cats. Such a gentleman!

My owner loves me so much. She has had me since I was a puppy, and wants the very best for me. With a new husband and baby, she is not able to give me the life I need and deserve. I spend too much of my time doing nothing, and she really wants a loving home for me with owners who are active and can give me the exercise and activity I crave.

She would love to keep in touch with me, so hopefully that is OK with you.

My ideal home will be with a family, couple or single who own their home and have a securely fenced back yard. Having lots of time to spend with me, and an active lifestyle will seal the deal.

Please offer me a loving, forever home today. I can’t wait to show you what unconditional love is all about.

Love and Licks,

About San Diego Find My Pet A Home

About Our Rescue Group...

In many locations throughout the USA and Canada, shelters and rescues are filled to capacity, leaving pet owners who can no longer care for their pet with nowhere to turn. Many pets are needlessly being euthanized.

Being placed in a shelter is a very stressful experience for all pets - and their owners. We offer a very good alternative, allowing pets to stay in the loving care of their owners while a new home is located for them.

We have helped many pet owners in need to place their pet in a home where they have great peace of mind in knowing that their pet is being cherished, well cared for and kept safe, happy and healthy.

Come Meet Our Pets...

In most instances, our pets stay with their owners until a new home can be located. There are some situations which require a more urgent placement, and in these instances, we look for loving foster homes to care for these pets until a permanent home can be located.

Pets available for adoption can be viewed on our website at

Our Adoption Process...

When a pet is placed with our organization, our staff create a very honest and compelling adoption story about the pet, using the information provided to us.

We then spread the word about this pet's need for a new home through a wide variety of online services, and through local outreach.

Interested parties are directed to fill out a formal request to meet a pet, providing in-depth information about themselves.

Before a potential adopter is introduced to a pet, we do careful reference screening and a criminal records check.

Should the pet's owner and the adoptive party agree to an adoption, a formal agreement is entered into, requiring the new owner to agree to keep in touch, ensure the pet's physical and emotional well-being, and provide a safe, happy and healthy home.

They are required to agree that they will not surrender the pet to a shelter or give away the pet - but rather they are to contact our organization so that we can find another suitable home, in the event that they are unable to fulfill their commitment.

The owners deliver the pet to the new owners, so that they can do a home inspection prior to leaving the pet in the new owner's care.

Our organization provides follow-up services, contacting the new owners after the first week, and then every 45 days for the first nine months post-adoption. This helps ensure the pet is being well cared for, and that the new owners have any support they need in adjusting to life with their new companion,
