Lionel

Size XXL!I'm Very ProtectiveNo cats or small dogs

4 year old Lionel was picked up as a stray by animal control and landed in a crowded shelter.  GSROC got the call and made room in our lifeboat for this boy.   He is a very big boy and strong.   He can play rough and due to his size and tendency to become protective,  we recommend an experienced home that can provide him with the limits and structure he needs.

Lionel can be a bit reactive when he sees other dogs while out walking.  He needs someone to help him work on his socialization skills by enrolling him in training.    He is a great companion in the home and will happily follow you around and be your pal.  He is loyal to his family and needs a quiet home as he is protective.

Lionel is a bit unsettled right now and gets apprehensive when left alone.   He needs a home where someone is there most of the time to ease his apprehension.   He is very curious and likes to explore.

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.
