Claude is approximately 3 years old and as sweet as they come. He gets along nicely with other dogs and he would love to sit on your lap if you let him! Claude appears to be a submissive male. He walks nicely on a leash and loves to go for car rides. It always baffles us when wonderful dogs like this end up in shelters and are not reclaimed by their families.

The staff at a public animal shelter contacted us about Claude because he was one of their favorites. When his time ran out, none of them could bear to “put him to sleep” so they reached out to us for help. Of course, we could not turn our backs on sweet Claude.

Claude is in a foster home. He is current on his shots, neutered and housebroken. To arrange to meet him, please complete the online application and then contact K_dekker@earthlink.net




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.
