I Need An Experienced OwnerI donated blood to a police K9!No cats or small dogs

Flash is not for the faint of heart. He is a very intense shepherd with a strong prey drive. No small dogs, no cats and no kids for this macho male. Clearly, who ever had Flash before we rescued him from a shelter treated him very harshly—he has a burned impression of a muzzle on his face and this scar will never disappear.

Flash requires a very experienced handler who does not intend to interact with a lot of smaller animals or kids. Someone looking for an overprotective dog, or someone reclusive would be his ideal human. He has shown NO aggression toward people at all—quite the contrary, he is athletic and affectionate. He is bright and will learn with leadership, but he is headstrong and athletic as well. We have enrolled Flash in an intensive one-on-one training program to help him get off to a fresh start, and he is learning some agility moves, too!

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.
