I'm Athletic!No cats

We believe Ranier is a Belgian Malinois. What does that mean? That means he has tons and tons of energy! This is not a dog that would enjoy being left on his own while your family is gone during the day. Rainier is a dog that thrives on challenges and enjoys working. Running, agility, scent work – you name it……Ranier would enjoy giving it a try.

He was very good with our volunteer’s small children. He hopped into the car and settled down at their feet. He has very good leash manners and likes car rides.

He appears to get along well with other dogs but did not like it when a dog jumped up on a vet tech at the clinic. He did respond to correction however.

One thing we do know – Ranier does not like cats. The Belgian Malinois prey drive comes out in full force when he sees a cat, so a feline free home is needed for this boy.

Please do some research on Belgian Malinois if you are considering adding Ranier to your family. They are a special breed with lots of great qualities.

If you would like to meet Ranier, 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.
