I need a quiet homeUPDATED BIO!Adult home needed
Ranger is a 5 year old GSD mix. Though he doesn’t have the classic looks of a GSD, he is proud to be 1/8 GSD, and has the DNA report to prove it!
He has been through some trauma in his very early life, and he needs to get to know people before he feels safe with anyone new. But once he knows you and trusts you, he will be your very best friend.
He has been fostered for the last seven months in a home with two other dogs. However, his foster parents have become ill and can no longer care for him.  Ranger was of the other two dogs in his foster home and respectful of their space.
As a result of his trust issues, small children are a definite no. He needs a quiet home, with a single person or a couple, without a lot of company coming in and out. He loves walks and car rides and hanging out with his people.

If you would like to meet Ranger, please complete the online application and an adoption counselor will contact you.

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.
