While rescuing a dog at a local shelter, our scout came upon Onyx, tucked away from public view. The kennel staff told us that this big bouncy fellow was 16 years old and that “his” name was “Cookie”, but any novice could tell that this was no where near accurate. Sadly, due to this error, Onyx was stuck in a ‘lock down’ building and not made available for adoption. After some ‘discussions’, GSROC was able to rescue Onyx and get him to safety! Onyx very narrowly escaped euthanasia and we are proud that we are the group that saved him.
Our vet tells us that Onyx is much closer to 4 years old. He has probably lived his life as an outdoor dog based on how flies have chewed away his ear tips. Onyx is active and happy, but needs to gain wait! We can’t wait to see him filled out. Onyx will need basic obedience training as he has never learned any leash manners. He has tremendous potential given the right environment!
Please don’t overlook Onyx!

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.
