I Like Kitties!I Love To Play!UPDATED BIO!

Onyx is a 10 month old boy who ended up facing a grim end in a high kill shelter. He came in as a stray. GSROC heard of his plight and rushed to save him.

Onyx charms people at our adoption events with his playful antics. He likes to meet people and happily plays with other dogs whenever he gets an opportunity. He is housebroken and likes car rides.

Onyx is a young guy and will blossom with training and attention. Although he looks like a big guy, he is still under one year old and often acts like a puppy. He is eager to learn and wants to do the right thing – he just needs a family to show him the way.

Onyx will be a wonderful addition to any home as he enjoys children as well as adults.

When we introduced him to cats, he wanted to play with the cat. We believe, with proper introduction, he could live with a cat.

We did discover he likes small dogs! Check out this video:

Please don’t apply to adopt unless you are prepared to invest time and leadership and you can commit to providing a loving home for the next 10-12 years.

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.
