His owners bought him from a breeder 4 years ago. Illness hit the family and they decided they could not keep him. Family members pitched in to put him in boarding until his mom could recover. This took longer than expected & they could not keep it up.
Sadly, the decision was made to take him to a shelter. A family member heard of this & made it her mission to save him from the shelter. She raised money to help with boarding costs & contacted us.
Even though we were totally full – how could we say no? So she took time off work, drove all the way to Vegas, picked up Hercules and brought him here. Today, before he came to us, she took him to the beach…because he had never been there.
Hercules is housebroken,friendly and walks easily on a leash. Car rides are one of his favorite things. Hercules has a strong personality and will do well in a home that understands the breed.
He made friends at every rest stop on his way from Las Vegas. He is a bit possessive of his toys, so a home with children over 10 years would be suggested, or a trainer to help him overcome this bad habit.
If you would like to meet Hercules, 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 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.
