Little Bit

I Need A Sponsor!

4 week old  LI’l Bit was considered the runt of the litter and given to a rescue by a backyard breeder.   He has a serious heart condition and his former owners were unable to get him the care he needed.  We could not turn our backs on this sweet boy and we made room in our lifeboat.


This sweet boy has had his specialist appointment and the news is not good.  Li’l Bit is not a candidate for heart surgery as he would probably not survive the surgery. He has an enlarged heart, some neurological issues and is partially blind.  We have been told that he will live for perhaps a few months at most.  Please rest assured that for the remainder of his life, this little puppy will remain in his foster home where he is being cared for.

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.
