Say hello to Trader Joe! TJ is approximately 6 years old and he has a great disposition. He really loves people, he likes to hug. Trader Jo would happily sit right next to you as you pet him and tell him what a handsome fella he is.
Trader Joe has a strong personality and believes his way is the best way. However, he is more than happy to take the lead from someone who will show him the right way. We have enrolled him in our obedience class to help him refine his doggy manners. We believe Trader Joe would flourish in a home where he can be the only dog.
We have discovered one thing Trader Joe really enjoys. He loves to roll in the grass and give himself a good back scratch. Our volunteer took him out for a walk and Trader Joe impressed her with his good leash skills and willingness to listen to commands.
One thing Trader Joe does not seem to like is small dogs. He seems himself as large and in charge and does not have the patience to get along with small critters.
Trader Joe may be just the boy you are looking for. Happy, playful and ready to keep you company as you exercise and stay in shape!
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.
