I'm Athletic!CHECK OUT MY NEW PHOTOS!No cats or small dogs

Two year old Erik looks like a fluffy bear – on the petite side.  He has lots of energy and likes to run and romp when out on walks.   He loves people and wants an active person to be his very own.  He bonds quickly with his person and will stay right next to you as you go about your day.

Erik doesn’t enjoy being separated from his people. so a crate is best for him when he is left home alone.  This will prevent him from trying to jump the fence to go with you.  He just knows you want him to go along and enjoy the fun!

He is currently in a GSROC foster home and gets along well with the boy in the home.  He loves to play keep away with the little boy in his foster home.  He does best with children at least 8 years old or older.     He is just too active and athletic for smaller children.

Erik may be on the smaller side but he doesn’t know that.  He sees himself as a big guy and does not like other dogs around.  He is perfect for the home that is looking for one dog.

If you would like to meet Erik, 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.
