Yet another young dog – still very much a puppy lands in a high kill shelter with no options left open to her.   GSROC stepped in to offer her a new chance at a new life.

She is a young girl who likes people and loves to get out of the kennel for walks.  Alicia is a friendly girl who is learning to make friends with other dogs as well.   She is eager to continue her training so she can impress everyone with how smart she is.

This girl is obedient, knows some basic commands and she is housebroken.  She would be oh so happy in a home with another friendly dog to play with – but that is not mandatory.  She does have lots of energy so an active home would be fine.  Remember, Alicia is still a puppy – albeit a large one.  That means at times she can be a bit mouthy – which is typical of her age level.  For that reason, we believe she would do best in a home with children a bit older – ages 10 and up.

Please remember – in order for Alicia to develop into a wonderful adult dog , she will need consistent leadership and training.  She needs someone to show her correct behaviors – how else will she learn?   If you are not willing or able to commit to this, please consider an older dog.


If you would like to meet Alicia, 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.
