Dux is a 6 month old purebred Malinois puppy who suffered a traumatic injury to his face.  Our vet believes that he was hit by a car which resulted in him losing a large part of his upper lip and lower jaw.  He has recuperated from the surgery and is now learning his puppy skills with our volunteers.

Dux is a happy boy who likes to spend time with people.  He stays close to you when you take him for a walk.  He is just happy to be by your side.

Dux arrived with open wounds and a serious infection.  He has recovered from the needed surgery to repair the wound to his face.  The vet now believes he may have caught it on a fence or wire rather than being caused from a dog fight, etc, as the wound was not ragged.  He is a bouncy boy filled with energy.



If you would like to meet Dux, 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.
