Pace is the confident, inquisitive and self-appointed leader of the ‘P’ pack of puppies. He leads his sisters on daily action- packed adventures of chase, tag, and other rough and tumble adventures. There is not a dull moment with Pace at the helm!
Like his sisters, he is learning beginning obedience with a clicker and he is a positive puppy star, soaking up his lessons with glee and begging for more. He is learning to focus on his handler in distracting situations, come when called, sit, down, stay, and shakes paws with a stranger. Pace loves to go for walks and walks beautifully on a loose leash. This athletic youngster shows a natural aptitude for retrieving toys–an activity he works at daily. He runs gracefully on his long legs like a gazelle and would make a great jogging or power walking companion.
Pace enjoys the company of children and other dogs, large and small. He lives with an elderly cat in his foster home, whom he ignores. He is learning basic house manners, uses a doggy door, sleeps in a crate, and is just about housebroken. He rides politely in the car and loves to snooze at your feet or in your lap!
Pace is on his way to becoming a model canine citizen and will make some lucky family a precious companion.

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.
