7 month old Ricky may have had a hard start to his life.  Living with a hoarder in a dusty, dirty place with little shade and no love.  After being rescued by animal control, GSROC stepped in to give him a new life.   Of course, then we discovered he had Parvo!

This sweet little guy fought off that nasty virus and impressed all of us with his ability to fight for his health and recover.  He is now happily hanging out in his foster home, doing all the normal, regular puppy types of things.   Playing, tussling with the other puppies in his foster home and of course – keeping his people company as much as possible.

It’s time for this little guy to have a home of his very own.  He is housebroken, crate trained and such a love!  He likes being with other dogs and gets along with children too.

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.
