Mambo is a handsome 2 year old boy who is very eager for affection. He was born on May 21, 2006 (making him a Gemini!). He is painfully shy, probably because he was picked on by litter mates. His front paw is mal-formed, so he was slated for euthanasia despite his tender age. Luckily for Mambo, our wonderful volunteers in Hong Kong learned of his plight and swooped in to rescue him. Then, they escorted him all the way to the US in the hope that Mambo can receive orthopedic surgery to give him back the use of his leg.

We have scheduled Mambo to visit our specialists to determine the best course of treatment for him. Here is a mini video of Mambo while he was still in Hong Kong waiting to catch his plane to California!

As we learn more about Mambo, we will update his profile and share news of his progress. In the meantime, we are hoping that our wonderful supporters will help us to raise money to help offset his medical costs, which we expect to soar very quickly. Specialty veterinarians are not inexpensive, and Mambo needs to see someone very familiar with this sort of surgical repair, so we want to be able to afford ‘the best’ for our Chinese Shepherd!

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

  • Adult GSDs: $395
  • Purebred GSD Puppies: $495
  • Mixed GSD Puppies: $395
  • Special Senior-to-Senior Adoptions: $295
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.
