I'm Special!Volunteer Favorite!

Samuel was adopted from a shelter when he was just a puppy by a caring person. Soon after adopting Samuel, his caretaker noticed that he was not acting the same as other puppies. Sadly, she discovered that Samuel has little if any vision, although he doesn’t let this stop him! Samuel navigates very well by sense of smell! He is happy and affectionate and responds well to instructions.

Samuel thought that his life with his mommy was secure, but then more hardship struck. Samuel’s caretaker has lost her job and her home and now she is desperate to find a safe and loving environment for her beloved boy.

We know that it will take a very special person to adopt Samuel, but we have faith that there are people in the world who will come to the aid of a blind orphan puppy. We have to believe this because the alternative would be too much to bear.

To arrange to meet Samuel, please complete the online application first and then contact for more details.

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.
