Smiling is my specialtyCHECK OUT MY NEW PHOTOS!

One year old Jethro has just arrived from a crowded shelter.  He was so happy when he realized we had a spot for him!   He is filled with excitement when he is out on a walk – so many new things to see and smell!   He has lots of puppy energy and curiosity packed into his big adult sized body.  He is eager to make you proud – he just needs someone willing to take the time to train him and show him the way.   He promises to do his homework and ace his exams if you give him a try.

Jethro gets along with children and likes to play ball.  He was quite popular at a recent adoption event.  He greeted everyone politely and happily sat by them while they gave him attention.

Jethro is a medium energy type of boy.  Perfect for walks, hikes, etc but he doesn’t have boundless energy.  He appears to be dog friendly when he sees other dogs.


If you would like to meet Jethro, 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.
