Oso is a giant bear of a guy who lost his home through no fault of his own.  When Oso was 6 years old,  his family decided they had too many dogs and he drew the short straw.   He has patiently waited for another family to come along and adopt himm.

Oso lived with his family and several other dogs.  As you can see he’s a big boy with shaggy grey whiskers.  He’s fun to play with once you get to know him.  He loves to bury squeaky toys, take long walks and to cuddle.

Oso has a giant personality that fits his body. He likes to take charge and needs an experienced home to set some boundaries for him.

Oso II enjoys spending time with people and really likes walks to the local park. He had so much fun, he starred for his very own video. OSO II video

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.
