I'm Petite!I Need A Hero.UPDATED BIO!No cats

Annabelle is a worried little girl who thinks she will never be loved. It’s obvious that she was treated very harshly in her past life, as she is terrified of new situations. Her first instinct is to run or hide. Annabelle is especially afraid of women with large purses and children. It hurts our hearts to see such a young puppy with so many fears.

Annabelle came in to the rescue when she landed at a public shelter due to a urinary tract infection that her owners didn’t want to treat. Our vets are conducting a full work up to ensure that she feels better.

Clearly, she is not your typical bouncy, silly Labrador girl. Annabelle is seeking a very quiet, patient and understanding home to help her overcome the traumas of her past. In return, she promises to bring you a lifetime of love and loyalty. Once she trusts you, Annabelle melts in your arms like a bundle of love!

No cats or small dogs for Annabelle, but a steady and easy-going large dog might be just what she needs to feel more confident.

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.
