Halen & his siblings came into the shelter system after their owner surrendered their litter, mother, and fifteen other dogs to animal control. He is a mixed breed puppy estimated to be in the 60lb range. Halen has a very playful and would do best in a home with another dog to play with.
Halen has had a start on crate training, housebreaking, and basic manners. He has been fostered in a home with small children, large & small dogs, and cats.
Please remember, all puppies are cute, cuddly and furry. However, they are also full of energy, inquisitiveness and curiosity. They require a home willing to take this on and show them the way. This takes time and commitment. Please think carefully before taking on a puppy.

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.
