I Like Kitties!Don't Overlook MeUPDATED BIO!

Max is an active, playful boy with a short, neat coat. We think he may be mixed with cattle dog perhaps. Max is housebroken and good with dogs of all sizes. He bonds very quickly with his family and is happiest when he is with his people.

We are recommending an adult only home for Max. He would thrive in an environment with someone who is looking for a dog that had protective traits. In return, Max will be your loyal, loving companion for life.

He loves to play ball even if his people aren’t available. He will nose his ball into a small space and then “dare” it to move. When the ball refuses to budge, he then pounces on it – just to show the ball who is boss!

Max walks well on a leash and knows basic commands. He currently lives in a foster home with several other big dogs and a few cats. He is currently hosting a family of tiny, abandoned kittens as well! Max is unfazed by all this feline activity.

To arrange to meet Max, please complete the online application first and an adoption counselor will contact you.

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.
