I Like Kitties!I'm ShySPECIAL UPDATE!

Gunner is about 18 months old. He is initially shy around people, but warms up fast once he knows he can trust you.

Gunner has a great quality – He is very playful if you want to play but is not high energy and just as happy to hang by your side if you are not feeling energetic! He would be great in a quiet house dog, would fit in well in an adult home or one with teenagers.

He is housebroken and enjoys playing with other dogs and is very gentle with puppies. He has met cats and is fine with them.

Gunner is most suitable for an experienced shepherd owner, but not suitable for someone new to the breed due to his hard beginning. Someone who is looking for a loyal and loving companion and willing to invest in giving patient guidance will gain a true best friend in Gunner.

If you are interested in meeting Gunner, please complete an 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.
