8 year old Happy was a cute puppy when he went to his new home. As he grew into a larger dog, his family had less and less time for him. Gradually Happy was left without structure in his home and believed he needed to take charge. His family was unwilling to pay for a trainer to provide them with assistance.
Happy is now back with GSROC and we have promised to help him find a home where he can succeed. He is in a GSROC foster home and working with his foster mom. She reports he knows all his commands, is housebroken and loves his people. He prefers women over men and keeps an eye on his humans all the time. He is happy to be at your side while you are working and will lay quietly at your feet. He likes to go for walks and loves exploring the park with our volunteers.
Small dogs are not on his list of things he likes and he does not like aggressive dogs that give him attitude. His name may be Happy, but he disdains rude dogs.

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.
