I Need An Experienced Owner

Meet Asher. This big guy is approximately 1 year old and full of energy. He knows he is a big guy and likes to throw his weight around. However, an experienced, confident handler had no problem letting Asher know who was really in charge. We believe his bravado is just a front. When our handler took him away from the hustle and bustle of the adoption event, he settled right down by her side and enjoyed watching the world go by.

He can be a bit mouthy when he meets you – it is his method of trying to get his own way. Asher knows he is a handsome guy and likes to have people tell him that too. He does not get along that well with other male dogs. We recommend a home with older children, such as teenagers or an all adult home for Asher due to his strength.

If you would like to meet Asher, please complete the online application and an adoption counselor will contact you.

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 In light of the rising vet care costs associated with Giardia tests and boarding at vets, we are raising our adoption donation for adult GSDs to $395.00 starting on July 1, 2021

The adoption donations for other dogs will remain the same — $475.00 for purebred puppies, $375 for mixed puppies. (On a case by case basis, e.g. senior for senior, we will place a senior for $275.00 with a senior.)

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.
