Hunter's Story...

I Love Children!

Hunter is a beautiful loving 6-year-old German Shepherd who has lost the only home he has ever known.

Hunter has been with one family since he was 4 months old. He was raised in a house full of girls and loves children. Hunter enjoys his morning and afternoon walks; and makes a great running partner.


Hunter is a big boy weighing about 85 lbs. He especially loves being with the family and sleeps in the house, by the bedside. Hunter is smart, playful, and knows all his basic commands but could use a refresher course. He can be left in doors, and can communicate when he needs to be let out.

Hunter is a loving dog and very protective of his family and property. He needs someone who is a strong leader that is willing to enforce who is the pack leader. He would prefer to be the only dog in his castle. Hunter does not like small dogs or cats. If you wish to know more about Hunter, please fill out an online application and contact for more information.

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.
