I love to play ballUPDATED BIO!

One year old Tyson  has been through a lot in his short life. His original family spent buckets of money for him as a puppy, but then couldn’t be bothered with him after that.   They left him in a crate for long hours while they were gone at work.  To add insult to injury, they then left him behind when they moved! A kind neighbor scooped him up rather than see him go to a high kill shelter. He was amazed that a sweetie like Tyson could be dumped like yesterday’s newspaper.

Unfortunately, he could not keep him himself, so he asked for help. GSROC is confident we can provide this boy with a happy ending.

Tyson is an adolescent and will thrive in a home willing to set limits for him and provide him with the guidance he needs as he grows into an adult.   He likes to go for walks and to play ball.   Tyson likes other dogs.  This boy has lots of energy and will happily accompany you to the park where you can both romp and play.

If you are interested in meeting him, please complete an online application and an adoption counselor will contact 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.
