Jem

Watch my video!UPDATED BIO!

16 week old Jem is a mix of GSD and something cute.   His mother is a black german shepherd.   When she was adopted from a local shelter,  the new owner had no idea she was pregnant!  He wanted to ensure that all her babies found loving homes and contacted GSROC for help.

Jem is a happy little guy.  He has been well socialized with children and other dogs in his GSROC foster home.  He even has become part of the family “band” and enjoys when the drums and violin are played!  Jem is a very smart guy – he has already learned many of his basic commands and is now mastering “leave it” and “drop it”.    While Jem has lots of puppy energy – after all, what puppy doesn’t?   He has a basically mellow personality and just likes to hang out with his people.

Jem’s favorite doggy pal is Luna.  He loves to play with her and go for long walks in the park.  Click on their video below.

Please remember, adopting a puppy is not everyone’s cup of tea.  As cute as they are – puppies demand a large investment of time, patience, and training.  They are inquisitive, have endless energy and get into just about everything.  They dig, chew, and seemingly never stop! Think long and hard about your lifestyle.

If you are not willing to invest the time and training to ensure your puppy matures into the wonderful dog – then please consider an older dog.

PLEASE NOTE.  PUPPIES ARE SHOWN BY APPOINTMENT ONLY.  THEY DO NOT COME TO ADOPTION EVENTS.  PLEASE SUBMIT YOUR APPLICATION AND A COUNSELOR WILL CONTACT YOU DIRECTLY.

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.
