I'm Housebroken!UPDATED BIO!I have special needs

6 month old Hans was born with a deformity to his foot.   He can not use the paw on that leg and was wearing  a special splint for support.  Hans lives with children and a smaller dog in his foster home and enjoys playing with them.

He has been seen by our specialist who wants him to stop wearing his brace and be monitored to see how he progresses.  We are hopeful that with close monitoring and time, his tendons and ligaments will strengthen and allow him full mobility.

Hans is a handsome boy who loves chew toys and belly rubs.  He is busily learning all sorts of important doggy skills.  He can sit and shake hands.  But, one of his cutest tricks is – when he is hungry, he will drag his metal bowl to his foster mom so she knows it’s time to eat!

He likes to go to Zoom meetings with his foster mom and routinely says hello to everyone on the call.

He is a happy, playful boy but needs a more sedentary lifestyle to protect his leg.  This sweet boy needs a home that is as special as he is.

If you would like to meet Hans, please complete the online application and an adoption counselor will contact you.

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.
