I've Had Training!No cats or small dogs

Erik is a 3-year-old love bug who enjoys playing with toys and snuggling.  He has has one-on-one professional training and responds very well to consistency and leadership.  Erik likes other large dogs, but is not a fan of smaller dogs.  He loves children.  Erik would probably prefer to be an only dog but might enjoy a female dog as a companion.  He is housebroken and crate trained.

Erik does well on his pack walks – he has good leash skills and stays beside his handler.   He loves to enjoy the outdoors and spend time with his people.

He 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.

He likes children and does best with children at least 8 years old or older.     He is just too active and athletic for smaller children.


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.
