I'm Athletic!UPDATED BIO!

4 year Mojave loved his owner and pledged his loyalty to him. Unfortunately, his owner recently died and family members refused to take him in. Suddenly, Mojave found himself homeless and in a cold, scary shelter.

He was not used to these conditions and developed an upper respiratory condition. GSROC could not bear the thought of this boy facing a grim end.

Our volunteer drove many miles to pull Mojave to safety. He has been examined by our vet and will need costly antibiotics.

UPDATE: 11/11/2013 – Mojave has taken a turn for the worse and is struggling to overcome a serious case of pneumonia. He now needs more intensive care and costly antibiotics. This boy has been through so much, we owe it to him to show that someone cares about his well being.

UPDATE 11/22/13

Fortunately, we caught Mojave’s pneumonia in time and were able to nurse him back to health with antibiotics and fluids. Mojave is now ready to be adopted and be your best pal!!

Mojave needs a home with secure, high fencing as he has shown he can be quite agile. He would excel in agility classes or other activities.

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.
