Facts about Ruby

  • Breed: German Shepherd Dog

  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 10760205

2 year old Ruby landed in a crowded shelter in Kern county during a recent wildfire. As the fires worsened, the shelter needed assistance to free up space for other pets that were being displaced by the fire.

GSROC stepped up to save this girl, even though she was suffering from mange at the time. All that is behind her now. Thanks to the support of our donors and a loving GSROC foster home, she has conquered her skin condition. She is one pretty girl now.

She shares her foster home with a pug, some cats and a GSD. Of all her potential friends, the german shepherd is the one least interested in playing. That doesn’t stop our Ruby! She has made friends with the pug and romps with him as much as possible. When the pug is worn out, Ruby goes to check on the cats to see if they will join in her games.

Ruby is working on her doggy skills and walks easily on a leash. She loves car rides and is always ready to go for a quick trip with her family. She likes to explore and discover newt things with her people. Ruby will enjoy an active family who will continue her training so she can develop into the wonderful dog she is destined to be. She would love a home with another playful dog as this girl has lots of energy.

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.
