This gorgeous boy is Chopper! We believe he’s approximately 10 years old. Don’t tell him that however, Chopper loves to play fetch and will tire you out before he quits!
Chopper is somewhat aloof when he first meets new people. He has some understandable abandonment issues. This boy was left behind when his family moved. Kind neighbors gave him food and water for over a month before they realized the family wasn’t coming back. Then they reached out to us.
Chopper knows his commands and loves to perform for an audience. He is wary of new experiences but you can win him over with treats and kindness. Once he realizes he can trust you he’s more puppy like. He will take treats from your palm quite gently.
We do not recommend a home with small children for Chopper. A home that understands and enjoys the GSD personality will be the best home for this handsome guy.
male If you would like to meet Chopper, 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 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.
