Age: 3 months

\NCan You Please Help Me?

Trooper is only 3 months old, and was born with mega-esophagus that requires him to be fed several small meals a day in an upright position in order for him to be able to digest food properly, with rest after each meal.

Dogs can live long lives with this condition, but it requires a very dedicated home, who knows and/or is willing to accommodate this condition.

Special meals and specially designed feeding chairs are needed in order to feed little Trooper meals. He also needs to visit the vet on a regular basis to ensure he is getting proper nutrition at his age and that he is gaining weight.

Any donation you can make towards his vet bills is greatly appreciated.

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.
