Stevie Wonder is 8 months old and is blind. Both of his retinas are detached, our vet believes this is a congenital defect. There is only one thing though……don’t tell Stevie! You see, Stevie is already smart enough to know how to use all his other senses. He doesn’t know what “blind” is – he just knows the world on his terms. On leash he will feel your presence and rocks his way down the street. Very confident smart little boy.
He likes car rides. Just give him a moment to hop in, figure out how the car is laid out and he is ready to roll! He even laid his head on our volunteer’s shoulder while she drove him to freedom.
Stevie has a gorgeous red and black sable coat. He knows no fear, he has already climbed out of his run – he wanted to sit on top of it to check out his new digs.
Stevie needs a foster home so he can continue learning new skills and work towards finding a new home.
We introduced Stevie to some cats and he was unfazed. The cat walked right up to him and head bumped him. Stevie gave a sniff, was unimpressed and walked away.
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.
