Buddy Boy was found with no collar, tag or chip. Good Samaritans tried and tried to find his original family, but no one ever stepped forward.
Buddy is a rough and tumble kinda guy, approximately 6 years old according to our vet. Buddy is currently on canned puppy food and some supplements to balance out his gut health and help him feel better.
Buddy needs a patient and gentle, but experienced hand. He bonds quickly and loves nothing more than to be around his person. He is house trained and excellent inside, very mellow, but he is a powerhouse on walks. Buddy has a very loyal and protective disposition. He is independent and smart and attentive. However, he can be protective of his resources as he gets to know new people.
Buddy hasn’t received much socialization around other animals in his life and has decided he likes being an only dog and having all of the attention. Buddy is ready to please his person but needs some patient coaching on just what that means. Buddy Boy would thrive in a quiet, adult home where he can be your loyal companion.
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.
