I've Had Training!

Very small boy, black and tan classic, arrived with URI so we are treating it.  Tested well with large dogs.   Weighs around 48 pounds and is not underweight—just small in stature.  Picked up as a stray by animal control, he was running out of options until GSROC came along.  Boomer is a sweet older puppy who needs to find his place in life.  It appears that he may not have been well socialized in his prior life. Some things that we take for granted – bicycles, funny looking pipes near the sidewalk, etc are unknown to Boomer and he isn’t sure how to react.   Our volunteers are helping to introduce him to new experiences and increase his confidence.

Boomer can be dog reactive at times when he feels stressed.   GSROC has given him additional training to help him become more comfortable around other dogs.

Recently we introduced him to a cat and he did not appear to be concerned about the cat.  We believe that with proper introduction and supervision Boomer may be able to live with a cat.

If you would like to meet Boomer, 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 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.
