Gator is a very handsome large boy. He loves to play ball, and he will play with or without the help of a human! He especially loves to play soccer! He loves to receive attention from adults and kids alike. He doesn’t seem to notice cats much. When he is walked a cat may cross his path and he doesn’t pay it any attention. However, this isn’t a true test that he could live with a cat. Currently he lives with a female Shepherd who he adores. He will probably be the alpha in his new home. Gator is healthy and does not require any medication or special diet and he just turned 6 in July 08.
Gator is not fond of fireworks or thunder storms. During these times he prefers to be in his “safe place”, like a crate or under a table, and preferably with his master consoling him. He is a great house dog, totally housetrained. He loves to sleep on his pillow with his favorite ball under his head or paws.

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.
