I Need An Experienced Owner

2 year old Gus is a typical GSD teenager, full of energy and convinced he knows best. Like some teenagers, Gus 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.

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. He is housebroken and likes to play ball.

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 Our adoption donation is minimum $350.00 plus $25.00 for microchip for adult dogs and $450 plus $25.00 microchip for puppies 1 year and under. 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.
