Striker is doing great in his foster home. He is very smart and quick to learn new things. He already knows a few basic obedience skills and is eager to learn more. He is quick to learn boundaries, but knows how to use his adorable good looks to get what he wants. So he will need an owner who can provide leadership and love. He loves to play as all puppies do, and will need a playmate (human or canine) who can give him a lot of play time. He is very curious of his feline housemate, but has proven to be a gentle friend. Although he is a puppy and is full of puppy energy, he also is quite content laying at someone’s feet (or in their lap if allowed). He is a snuggle bug who loves the company of any friend.

Striker still has his baby teeth, so we estimate him to be around 5 months tops.

We are asking a $400 donation for Striker to help us rescue and rehabilitate more dogs in need. He is microchipped, neutered, has been dewormed, frontlined and is up to date on his vaccinations.

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.
