Stryder - ADOPTED

I Like Kitties!

Stryder is a handsome boy with a medium-sized body of 80 pounds. He has an expressive face, beautiful eyes, large ears and classic shepherd markings. Stryder loves his routine and would do well in a laid back home with medium active adults and children, calm dogs and cats.

He is easy to care for, can be outside on his own in a calm manner, loves to lie in the sun and meander around the yard without chewing or digging or jumping, is crate trained, and will sit and stay when you give him his favorite treats! He likes car rides, taking short or long walks on a lazy evening or watching TV with his beloved ones.

Stryder would like someone that will continue to grow his confidence through their gentleness and strength. Every so often his initial reaction to change is to crouch or let out the funniest bawl and hope the stressor goes away. Then, his curiosity kicks in, his ears go up, his head turns and he works his way through to his next achievement!

If you are looking for a beautiful spirit and a loyal friend all embodied in a good looking, strong male, look no further–Stryder is all this and more. To arrange to meet Stryder, please complete the online application and then contact maryfranz@charter.net for more details.




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 Our adoption donation is minimum $350.00 plus $25.00 for microchip for adult dogs and $450 plus $25.00 microchip for puppies 1 year and under. 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.
