Abbie has just arrived from an overcrowded animal shelter where she ended up on the euthanasia list simply because she developed a slight case of kennel cough. Kennel cough is a mild “cold” for dogs and is completely treatable with antibiotics. Usually, the cold doesn’t last more than 10 days and the dog is back to feeling great. We couldn’t bear to think that this beautiful girl would lose her life simply because she got sick at the shelter. One of our wonderful foster homes agreed to welcome her in for safekeeping while she recovers.

Abbie is a long and lanky female who is alarmingly thin. We think this is one of the reasons that she got sick at the shelter–the poor girl hasn’t had very good nutrition lately, that’s for sure. Thankfully, she’s getting all the good food and TLC she needs to fill out to be closer to 65-75 pounds.

Abbie has just arrived so we are getting to know her better. To arrange to meet her, please complete the online application first and then contact for more information.

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.
