Shepherd impersonator!

2 year old Buddy lived with a family who kept  him in a concrete yard with no access to grass and was never allowed in the house.   That’s no life for a fun loving guy like Buddy – or any dog for that matter.
Buddy is a friendly guy who likes to play.  He enjoys children and will seek them out when on a walk.  His former family had 5 children and he appears well socialized.
Buddy may be only 2 years old and a sweetheart, but he is also very strong.  He had never been taken on a walk before arriving at GSROC!   Buddy wants to please, what labrador doesn’t?  So, he is very eager to learn his doggy skills.
Buddy is fascinated with the little things that most dogs take for granted.  On a recent walk in the park, Buddy was distracted with the grass and outside world.  So many new things to sniff and figure out!
Buddy is looking for a loving home that will help him continue to learn his doggy skills so he can continue his journey to becoming a very well trained dog.

If you would like to meet Buddy, 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.
