4 year old Bigg found himself unwanted in a very crowded high kill shelter. He had less than 24 hours to find a way out, otherwise a grim end awaited him. GSROC heard of his plight and drove many miles in heavy traffic to save him.

When Bigg arrived, it was obvious that he had an injury to one eye, and a problem with the other eye. A trip to the eye care specialist revealed that Bigg needed surgery to repair a painful condition that caused his eye lashes to grow inward. This is called entropian eye lids. Thanks to an outpouring of support from our wonderful donors, we were able to provide Bigg with this care so that he could feel better immediately. His other eye had sustained some sort of a traumatic injury that left it looking unusual, however we have been assured that he has vision in the eye so it should not be removed.
He is currently in a GSROC foster home and impressed everyone with his sweet, friendly nature. He immediately made friends with the other GSD in the home. He even taught the younger dog to play tug of war! He is happiest inside with his people. He loves attention and will sit quietly by your side waiting for pats and affection.

Recently we introduced him to some cats. Biggs was too interested in the cats and we believe a feline free home would be best for him.

Bigg is the epitome of a big ol' sweetheart. He is a wonderful friend and a great ambassador at our adoption events. Now, we think it's his turn to find love. Please come out and meet Bigg--he lives up to his name!

Adoption Application
If you are interested in adopting one of our dogs, you may submit an application online or via fax. If you choose to send a fax, please download the Adoption Application here in PDF format; fill it out and sign it. You can fax it to us at 714-773-9430.

Home Visit
Prior to any dog going home, we do require a home visit to ensure that your environment is safe and secure. Once your home has been approved, the adoption can move forward.

Adoption Donation
Our adoption donation is minimum $350.00 plus $25.00 for microchip for adult dogs and $450 plus $25.00 microchip for puppies 1 year and under. This donation is tax deductible as allowed by law and helps to offset the costs that we have incurred for the dog's care and housing during his or her stay with our group. The minimum adoption donation does not entirely cover the investments that we have made in the dogs so if you are in a position to give more, we would be honored to receive your additional donation. All adoption donations go directly toward the needs of our dogs.

All dogs adopted through GSROC are spayed or neutered, current on their vaccines and de-wormed. Because the minimum Adoption Donation rarely covers the costs associated with each dog, we ask that adopters who are in a position to give additional funds do so at their discretion.
