Ruff and Tumbles


Age: 3-4 months

When our volunteer found not one, but TWO puppies huddled together in a cage, there was no way she was going to leave one of the brothers behind to fend for himself alone, so she scurried both to safety.

Ruff and Tumbles are silly, happy puppies with typical puppy behaviors. They dig, chew, and play together, blissfully unaware how close to death they came. Based on their behavior and appearance, we are guessing they have Labrador Retriever in their background.

Their foster mom reports that they are remarkably trainable and docile–both of them sit and shake paws! They sleep all night in a crate and are cohabitating peacefully with kitties. Although they would love to be adopted together, at 3-4 months old, they are young enough to sever their sibling ties and bond to a human family.

Please, please, please before you consider one or both of these babies, consider the lifetime commitment they require. Puppies are simply a lot of work. After completing the online application, contact if you are interested in meeting the pups.

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

  • Adult GSDs: $395
  • Purebred GSD Puppies: $495
  • Mixed GSD Puppies: $395
  • Special Senior-to-Senior Adoptions: $295
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.
