I'm Housebroken!UPDATED BIO!Adult home needed

2 year old Waldo lost his home when his owner moved.   He is a handsome guy who lived with cats and 2 other big dogs in his former home.   Waldo doesn’t make friends quickly, he needs time to assess people and trust them.  The best way to meet him is to go for a walk with him so that he can relax and decide you are his friend.  Once he trusts you, he is your friend through thick and thin.  He seems to have been treated with a heavy hand in the past as he cowers at the slightest correction. For this reason, we recommend an adult only home for Waldo.

He enjoys going for car rides and would make a great road trip buddy.  His previous owner stated he doesn’t like to be touched on the head/neck but we have not seen that behavior.  In fact, he likes to lean in and snuggle by pressing his head against you.

If you would like to meet Waldo, please complete the 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.
