Tipster is a 6 month old cutie who was born with a non-functioning leg. As he grew older, the limb was dragging more and more, causing him possible spinal alignment issues. When faced with the option of amputation to remove the lifeless limb, Tipster’s family opted for GSROC to take over his care.
Within hours, a team of veterinary specialists had examined this sweet boy and determined that there was no way to save his leg, and that since his birth, he had not been using it for support. The limb was making it difficult for him to navigate because of the way it dragged under him. To provide Tipster with the best life possible, we agreed to have the surgeon remove the leg that he wasn’t using. From what we are told, no follow up physical therapy will be required, and he should be much happier and enjoy greater mobility. We are eagerly awaiting an update from the hospital.
Tipster is affectionate and sweet. As we get to know his personality, we will update his profile. Right now, we are seeking special angels to help us with the costs of his surgery and follow up care. What better gift could there be for the holiday season than to give a sweet puppy the ability to run and play like other puppies? No donation is too small or too large. Please go to our DONATE page and indicate that your gift is for Tipster. Thank 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.
