Puppy Bear

Smart and active, Puppy Bear is a boy who needs a job to do.  Typical of his age, Puppy Bear can be quite stubborn.  If he is corrected and he believes he should not be, he will try to redirect.  He will do best in a home that provides structure and limits that he craves.
An active home or one who will enroll him in agility or some other type of training will be a good match for this boy.  He also loves fetch and frisbee.  This guy  catches frisbee in the air, super fast, and has the agility and energy of a Belgian Malinois.

Needless to say, Puppy Bear is NOT a dog that can be left alone for hours at a time.  His energy and drive will result in destructiveness.  This boy is no couch potato.
Small children will not work for Puppy Bear due to his energy and exuberance.  A larger family with older children who are all active with him is more the ticket.  He can tend to become overprotective if he spends all of his time with just one person.

Puppy Bear has the potential to be an outstanding dog.  But this will not happen without his family helping to make it happen.  Training, diligence and commitment is mandatory. If you are not willing to invest the time and training for this – Puppy Bear is not the right dog for 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.
