I Love To Cuddle!

Neil is a 5 month old intelligent and active puppy that is in a foster home busy learning puppy manners. He prefers to always be in the company of his people, loves to lay on your feet.  Actually he would prefer to be in your lap and doesn’t quite believe it when he is told he is too big for that.  He sees himself as a puppy but he is growing fast.   His exuberance and enthusiasm can be a bit too much for young children as he can easily knock them over.  At this stage he is also a bit mouthy and would enthusiastically eat their snacks too!
Neil loves his people so much he gets a bit jealous when other pets get attention but is learning there is room for everyone. He plays well with the other GSD in his foster home as she does not put up with his antics.  She is helping to teach him to share attention.   He can be timid when first meeting new people and going to new places but with patience and treats , he warms up quickly.
He loves action, adventures and car ride.   He needs an experienced home who can be a strong leader and be very consistent with him regarding acceptable behavior or he will want to rule the house.   Neil has the potential to develop into a fabulous adult  – all he needs is a family committed to help him get there.

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.
