Thumper loves people of all sizes. He is a size XL boy who resembles a favorite teddy bear. Thumper was rescued from a crowded animal shelter when his owners failed to reclaim him. He has a great disposition and is eager to find a family to love. Thumper does not care for other dogs so he needs to be the only canine king in his castle.

While Thumper was attending basic training classes we discovered that he ALREADY knows his basic commands very well. He knows how to shake & loves to have his belly rubbed. He really is a BIG lover, but he needs an experienced owner, otherwise he will try to take charge. He’s smart enough to do it, too!

To arrange to meet him, please complete the online application first and then contact for more information.

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

  • Adult GSDs: $395
  • Purebred GSD Puppies: $495
  • Mixed GSD Puppies: $395
  • Special Senior-to-Senior Adoptions: $295
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.
