Wyoming, Nevada, Dakota and Washington are shepherd mixes, approximately 5 months young. They are not ready for adoption yet, as they are still very traumatized by their early life with a hoarder. We are so grateful to have loving volunteers who are trying to help the boys learn to love and trust--it must be so awful to be such a frightened little puppy when the world holds so much potential for fun...


Wyoming is making the best progress of the bunch and allows himself to be pet and even bathed. He has a long, long way to go and is still not ready to walk on a leash, but we see a little bit of progress every day. When we take in dogs that are long term projects like these pups are, we rely on the support of wonderful animal lovers to help us offset costly boarding while the pups are with us. They are not relaxed enough to move into foster homes yet, so we are asking for donations to help with their needs. Please pledge your gift in any amount to help these sweet brothers who are so deserving. Simply click on DONATE and indicate that your gift is for Wyoming.

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.
