UPDATED BIO!No small dogs

4 year old Otto  was picked up by animal control as a stray and landed in a high kill shelter.  He is safe with GSROC now and looking for a home of his very own.

Otto has classic good looks and is a big, big boy.   He has a quiet, calmness about him at adoption events.   Otto likes people and greets strangers politely.   He does well when small children approach him and sits quietly while they pet him.

Otto has good leash skills, he walks calmly at your side.  Looking for someone to ride shotgun?  Otto is always ready to hop in the car for an adventure.

Otto does not care for small dogs and will do best in a home as the only dog.  With a dog like Otto, why would you want another dog?

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.
