Bear Claw - ADOPTED

Aren't I cute?UPDATED BIO!

UPDATE: JAN 2019 – Bear Claw is one member of our donut litter.  He was born in a crowded, high kill shelter and GSROC rushed to save him.   He is doing well in a GSROC foster home and is a very cute little guy.   He gets along well with his foster brothers and sisters.   He is being socialized with children and loves to play with them.

Bear Claw is one member of our donut litter.   He was born in a crowded, high kill shelter and was facing a grim future.  GSROC could not allow that to happen, so we rushed to save him.

This cute little guy was in a GSD foster home when he became ill.  We rushed him to the vet only to discover that he has Parvo!

He will need expensive medications, IV therapy and observation.   We could not turn our backs on this boy.  We believe he needs a chance at a great life.  Can he count on your support?


BEAR CLAW has been in critical condition with parvo for 7 days!  He’s been receiving IV fluids, antibiotics and other costly medications to help him fight this disease.   He is still not eating and requires daily tube feedings from the vet staff.  A plasma transfusion is being considered to help boost his tiny body.  Please consider sending your support to help this little guy.  We needs all of our support.

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.
