Haku is a 8 month old boy who months hours trying to charm and love his former family. They decided they were not interested in this sweet boy, so they dropped him off at a local shelter.
Understandably, he is a bit shy around people due to this former family. They didn’t take him places so he rarely got to meet new people. He is a bit food protective – as his former family used to feed him in his crate. For that reason, we recommend a home without small children.
Haku knows some basic commands and is eager to please. He is looking forward to a brand new life. We have promised to find him an understanding and loving family.
When we introduced Haku to cats, he let us know he is not shy about cats. He barked and lunged at the cat. We recommend a cat free home for our boy.
Please remember, while puppies are very cute and endearing, they need training and love to become wonderful adults. It is a life long commitment and one that needs to be carefully considered. In addition, they can not be left home alone all day – this is a recipe for disaster. If your personal schedule is such that you are gone for long periods due to work, etc, please consider an older dog.

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.
