Poor Nikko was so frightened at the animal shelter where his heartless owners left him. At only 3 1/2 years old, Nikko found himself abandoned and crammed into a little cage when his family left him at a high-kill shelter. This adorable black and tan boy knows how to “sit”, “shake hands”, and “come”.

Nikko is on the large side for a male, weighing in at 106 lbs! This big boy needs lots of love. He is affectionate and sweet and wants nothing more than to be your constant companion and confidante.

Nikko has just come back to us after his owner passed, so he is a little confused about what happened to his home. He is now around 5-6 years old. He loves other dogs and gets along with cats too.

Nikko is in boarding. Would you consider fostering this deserving boy while he looks for his forever home? If so, please complete our Foster Home Application. To arrange to meet Nikko, please contact johnandebhancock@aol.com and complete the online application.

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

  • 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.
