I'm Housebroken!UPDATED BIO!Adult home needed

Gus is 9 months old and is a very handsome boy. He is housebroken and friendly with people. Gus is a typical GSD teenager, full of energy and convinced he knows best. His former family could not be bothered with training this guy and consequently, he thinks he is ” all that and a bag of chips!” Not only that, he is ready to prove it to any dog that comes his way. Gus needs rules, guidelines and structure to learn the error of his ways. GSROC will be enrolling him in obedience classes to begin laying the foundation which will allow him to grow into the wonderful dog he was meant to be.

Gus likes to play fetch, this guy has lots of puppy energy to burn. He knows some basic commands and is eager to learn more and begin obedience training.

At this time, we recommend an adult home for Gus, one that is experienced in handling strong willed GSDs and enjoys that type of temperament.   Gus loves to go for walks and would be an excellent exercise buddy.

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.
