My story


"Chase" is an 85-lb, approx 2½-yo neutered male GSD who is loving, obedient and protective. He has excellent manners and loves to snuggle.

Chase is healthy and is up-to-date on his rabies and distemper/parvo vaccinations.

Chase is friendly with most everyone he meets in the house after a proper introduction. He is also fine meeting strangers outside the house.

Chase has yet to be introduced to any children, but there’s no reason to believe he wouldn’t be fine with them.

Chase is great with all but small dogs—he does not like the little ones. He lives with a female GSD who he loves to play with. (See elsewhere on this page for a video of Chase playing with a visiting dog.) He is also good at the dog park.

Chase has never lived with cats and would likely not do well with them, so a home without cats is in order.

Chase is housetrained and very well-behaved inside. His people keep him inside with their other dog when they are gone. Chase likes to view the world outside from a window. He sleeps in the home office.

Chase is good on leash and non-reactive towards other dogs he sees while on walks, though he definitely wants to check them out. Chase also has very good off-leash recall.

Chase loves riding in the car (especially with the windows down!) and is a polite passenger.

Chase loves to play fetch, chase, keep away and hide n’ seek. He loves a good chew toy (like a Nylabone) or a stuffed animal. He also loves being outdoors, watching for critters or just laying in the sun. He is not a digger.

Chase’s people took him in when he was about nine months old and have had him for 22 months. Chase had been used to protect a pot farm in Yreka, and was rescued by a relative of the son of one of Chase’s people (Audrey). Recently, Audrey’s husband was playing fetch w/ Chase when Chase caught view of the elderly neighbor and bit his hand for no apparent reason. The HOA that governs the housing development that Audrey and her husband live in have told them they must rehome Chase due to the bite incident.

Chase is located in Lincoln. His adoption fee is $100.

Please contact Audrey Lopez at or 916-812-1160 (texting works best).

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

1. View my dogs available for adoption, either on this Website or on our own Website ( I also list German Shepherds and German Shepherd mixes for other rescue groups and inviduals on my Website.

2. Contact Brian Foran at 916-655-3125 or to discuss the particular dog(s) that you're interested in.

3. Complete my adoption questionnaire. It is a downloadable Microsoft Word file on the page of my Website titled "How to Adopt a Dog through GSRSV." If possible, return the questionnaire via e-mail.

4. Go see the dog you're interested in--at my rescue facility, at the home of the dog's foster caretaker, or at the home of the dog's owner.

5. If you decide to adopt a dog, I will have you sign my adoption contract and pay the appropriate adoption fee, which varies between $300 to $100, depending on the age of the dog and whether it is a purebred GSD or not. This fee includes spaying or neutering, rabies and distemper/parvo vaccinations, heartworm check, and a 6-month supply of heartworm preventative. The adoption contract is on the same page of my Website as is the adoption questionnaire.

Go meet their pets

Because I am an independent rescuer caring for many dogs, I am presently unable to conduct regular adoption or "meet & greet" events.

I only arrange for people to meet the dogs that I have available for adoption after I have discussed the dog and have received an adoption questionnaire from them.

More about this rescue

German Shepherd Rescue of Sacramento Valley (GSRSV) is an organization dedicated to finding good homes for German Shepherd Dogs (GSDs) at risk of being placed in shelters, or who are already in shelters and possibly facing euthanasia. GSRSV is an independent rescue organization operated by one individual: Brian Foran. Though countless volunteers and benefactors have supported--and continue to support--GSRSV, I run and primarily fund the program, as I have since February 2001.
