UPDATE: April, 2021 – Obi was examined by our vet and determined he was not shot but rather there was a foreign body in his leg. He has been treated for that and recovered. He is now ready to start a new life with a loving family.
Obi knows his basic commands. He enjoys getting out and enjoying the spring weather. He is a big guy and strong. Our volunteers are working with Obi to polish his leash skills. Obi loves, loves, loves to play fetch. As long as you are willing to throw that ball, Obi is willing to run after it!
Obi is a big guy and sometimes sees himself as “large and in charge” – he becomes over protective of his owner. For this reason, we believe Obi needs to be placed in an experienced home with no children. Our volunteers are working with Obi to set limits and provide the structure he needs.
Obi, age 4-5 years, was found with a bullet hole in his rear leg! He has been rushed to our vet for care. As we understand it, Obi’s original owner gave him away, but the person who took him allowed him to roam. As a result, Obi was wounded. When the original owner was contacted thanks to microchip, she was not able to take Obi back, so GSROC rushed in to help.

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 Our adoption donation is minimum $350.00 plus $25.00 for microchip for adult dogs and $450 plus $25.00 microchip for puppies 1 year and under. 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.
