John Henry lost his home when his family lost interest in him. He started out as a cute, fluffy ball of fur. As he grew, his family lost interest in spending time with him.
GSROC has promised John Henry there are lots of wonderful families who will love and cherish him. We are working to find him that one special family. Could that be you?
He is safe with GSROC now and is looking forward to meeting people at our upcoming adoption events.
John Henry is only 8 months old – he is still a puppy – although a big one! He is looking forward to learning all the skills needed to grow into a wonderful GSD.
He is friendly with other dogs and we plan to introduce him to cats as well.
Please remember, puppies of all ages need training and love to become wonderful adults. They are cute and cuddly but also full of energy. It is a life long commitment and one that needs to be carefully thought out.

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.
