Bandit Happy Dog Available for Adoption



Age: 2.5 years

Watch my video!UPDATED BIO!Adult home needed

Bandit was rescued by a kind animal lover who then was told by her landlord she could not keep him.  We have made room for Bandit and he is now in a GSROC foster home where he is being socialized with other dogs and people.  He is housebroken and likes other dogs.

Bandit is a very smart guy who learns quickly.  Watch his video to see all the new things he has learned!

Bandit loves to play with his foster sibling.  Watch them at play on this video!


Like all puppies, Bandit likes to play and have fun.  However, he is just as happy to cuddle with his people.   He is a bit shy with strangers when he first meets them, but he relaxes quickly.

Bandit is growing big and strong, and has gotten fairly tall.  His exuberance sometimes causes lots of energy bursts and very small children may be knocked over.  A home with older, school age  children will be best for this boy.   We have had Bandit’s DNA done and he is a GSD with some husky and labrador mixed in.

Please remember, adopting a puppy is not everyone’s cup of tea.  As cute as they are – puppies demand a large investment of time, patience, and training.  They are inquisitive, have endless energy and get into just about everything.  They dig, chew, and seemingly never stop! Think long and hard about your lifestyle.

If you are not willing to invest the time and training to ensure your puppy matures into the wonderful dog – then please consider an older dog.


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.
