I Need An Experienced OwnerUPDATED BIO!

10 month old Simmons was living in a hoarding situation with small dogs.  When they were rescued, GSROC was contacted.   He is safe with us now and looking forward to starting a new life.   He is going to be a big boy and is already oh, so handsome!  It’s hard to believe this guy is still so young.   He was a big hit at a recent adoption event.  He greeted everyone politely and enjoyed meeting the children too.  Simmons rides well in the car and likes to get out and about.

Like all teenagers, Simmons sometimes believes his way is the best way and doesn’t want to listen to his handlers.   This is typical of the breed at this stage of development.  That being said, Simmons needs a confident, experienced handler who will show him the correct way to behave.  One who will commit to the training and time needed to help Simmons learn the correct socialization skills so he can develop into the fabulous dog he is meant to be.

If you would like to meet Simmons, please complete the online application and an adoption counselor will contact you.

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.
