GSROC received a desperate call from another Rescue Organization and a Veterinarian for HELP. The Veterinarian’s client wanted to bring Kobe in to be euthanized due to mild hip dysplasia and panno. Kobe just turned 1 year old on June 1st and is a large growing boy. His owner did not want to deal with his mild medical condition even after being told by more than one Vet that the panno is just growing spurts and the pain will go away within a matter of weeks, and the hip dysplasia is so mild, he could live a long and healthy life with exercise and a proper diet.
The Rescue begged the owner to give them a few days to find out if GSROC could help. Finally he said he would give them a few days but wanted him gone ASAP. He had just purchased another puppy from another breeder in Texas and it was arriving in a few days. This selfish and cold-hearted family discarded their loyal companion like a piece of trash. Their five children grew up with Kobe and Kobe adored the children. What a horrible lesson to teach your children. If a living creature isn’t perfect, it can be easily replaced.
Kobe is now in a GSROC foster home and doing very well. He gets along with other dogs, loves children and is housebroken. Kobe loves to follow his special person every where and is a big love. Kobe is a very large, strong young boy who would benefit from an obedience class. His birthdate is 06/01/06 and will probably be about 90 lbs. once he’s grown up.

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.
