I Need An Experienced OwnerUPDATED BIO!

Rockford is less than a year old and is your typical teenaged GSD. He has energy to spare and loves to play. His curiosity keeps him busy as he explores his surroundings, trying to learn all he can. Rockford needs to learn to curb his enthusiasm a bit, so we do not recommend him for homes with small children.

It is obvious that Rockford was probably left in the backyard with little personal interaction as he has had little training. Consequently, he thinks he is “all that and a bag of chips!” Like most teenagers who have never learned the rules of the road, he thinks his way is the best way. He is in desperate need of a strong pack leader to show him how to act in an appropriate manner.

He is a gorgeous coated boy who is going to grow into a stunning adult.

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.
