I'm Petite!I Love To Play!

Sandy has a GREAT personality. He plays well with other dogs and he loves people. He reminds us of an “all American dog”. We think that Sandy is a shepherd/cocker spaniel mix, but it’s hard to say for sure. He loves to be the center of attention and he’s very gentle around children. Someone gave Sandy a very bad haircut—it could have been a child from how uneven it is…we think Sandy is a little embarrassed about that, but when his new coat homes in, he’s going to be one handsome dude!

Sandy loves to be petted and he gives gentle ‘hugs’ in return. He knows how to sit and how to shake hands.

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.
