Size XXL!

Scooby is a 5-6  year old boy whose owner died in a car crash.   When family members were unable to care for him, they turned to GSROC for help.   He loves car rides and likes to play ball.  Want to make an instant friend?  Grab your car keys and invite Scooby along.   He will hop right in, settle down and enjoy being your car pool buddy!

Scooby is one big guy.  If you need to rest your hand anywhere when you are out on a walk….his head is the perfect height!  He likes people and will patiently stand and let you pet his head and tell him how handsome he is.  He likes to know people appreciate his darkly handsome good looks.

At a recent adoption event, Scooby made friends with some children who stopped by to pet him.  He was calm during all the coming and goings at the event.   However, Scooby has certain ideas about dogs he likes and doesn’t like.   Small dogs are not his cup of tea.  He will do best in a home as an only dog.

He needs an understanding home that will provide him with love and security.

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.
