Faithful and AppreciativeI donated blood to a police K9!No cats or small dogs

Stivali is the Italian word for boot. One look at this boy’s dark, handsome coloring and cream colored feet and you can understand how he got his name.

He is a very sweet boy who gets along well with dogs his own size. He is between 3-4 yrs of age. However, he does have a high prey drive, and cannot share his home with anything small and furry! He likes people and is very charming to those he meets. He is eager to please and looking forward to some training refresher courses so he can impress you with his efforts.

Stivali needs a home where he is not left alone for long periods of time. This may change once he feels comfortable and sure that his people aren’t going to abandon him.

If you are interested in meeting him, 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.
