Happy and playful, Clay is always looking for a good time. He is a good natured kinda guy with a good sense of humor. He is also very smart and knows if his handler is a softie or paying attention. Just like a teenager, he will push those boundaries to see how much he can get away with.
Not paying attention? Well, Clay may decide to get into mischief – just to see if you are awake. However, he is very cognizant of handlers that pay attention, and he shows the proper respect. He knows when he needs to mind his manners.
Clay has lots of energy and loves to be active. He can easily clear a 3-foot fence if he wishes. He would love to be in home with middle school children, for example – who are active and will make him a part of the fun.

Clay can be slightly goofy at times as well. Needless to say, due to his charming good nature, he is a volunteer favorite. Currently, he is busily polishing his leash skills. He is so eager to get out and have fun, sometimes he forgets to “curb his enthusiasm.” Once reminded though, he slows right down and trots along.
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.
