4 year old Gromit lost his home when his owner’s health deteriorated and he could no longer care for him. Unable to find anyone to take care of his best friend, the man surrendered him to a local shelter in hopes he would find a loving home. When GSROC became aware of this heartbreaking story, we rushed to save him.
Gromit is safe with GSROC and settling in with us. He enjoys car rides, especially if the radio is turned to KRTH 101! This boy likes oldies music.
Gromit knows hand commands and walks easily on a leash. He is a friendly, happy guy. Recently we introduced him to some cats. He was clearly unfazed by the cat, even when it ran by him. He gave it a couple of sniffs and then turned away to check out the rest of the room. We believe, with proper introduction, he could live in a home with a cat.
Gromit loves his ball very much and can get a bit toy possessive with other dogs.He is a high energy kinda guy and likes to be kept busy. His favorite game? FETCH of course!
He is used to being the only dog in the home and prefers it that way. He was in a foster home with a small child and played well with him.

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.
