Handsome – or Handi as he likes to be called – is a happy amazing dog. He was found late one night tied with tattered twine to a fence in South Los Angeles and was gentle and kind to those that approached him to help.
Handsome is great with other dogs of all sizes and loves people and kids. He stands noble and proud, but is calm and has great house manners. He is wonderful off leash and great on hikes! He loves dog beach, hiking up the mountains and city walks!
He is approximately 5 years old, fit and happy. He has the champion physique to be a strong traveler or hiker, but a calm demeanor for good company. Handsome has already been camping at the beach with his foster family and was fantastic off leash sticking to camp and walking with the pack. He’s living with a cat, but only ok with it (as long as it doesn’t run) He responds very well to any correction and would be a star in any obedience, agility or other dog training class. Handi is also great with the pet chicken he lives with! He’s easy to navigate on a leash around the neighborhood when any type of animal that approaches.
Handi is house trained and an observer ready to learn. He is alert and aware of anyone approaching the house with a sense of presence, yet not a threat or liability to any visitors – he loves kids and adults! He takes cues from his two legged friends very well. He is currently living with three other dogs in a pack, and is ok alone for long hours during the day in secure location (he can clear a 3 foot fence but only to find you). He loves to talk to you with happy hellos when you get home and has a happy dance when ever he sees the leash or car keys. He is neutered, micro chipped, updated on shots, bathed, and ready to go.
Handi is truly a great dog ready to keep you wonderful company. For more information please complete an application online.

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.
