I Love Children!

Meet Ward! Ward is a playful guy, he loves to play with dogs and people.

Ward is in a foster home with small children, cats and other dogs. He loves the children and has been well socialized.

He also is proving to be a stellar student as after only 3 lessons he is starting to walk on leash nicely, is coming to his name, and sits almost automatically in anticipation of a possible treat. He is also working on a small sit-stay and learning that lying down is rewarding because he gets a treat.

Ward is learning the very hard lesson for a puppy, not to jump. He is eager to learn and more than anything loves attention from his people.

Please remember, while puppies are very cute and endearing, they need training and leadership, in addition to love, to become wonderful adults. They are cute and cuddly but also full of energy. Adoption is a lifelong commitment and one that needs to be carefully considered.

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

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.
