I Need An Experienced OwnerUPDATED BIO!

8 month old Aria likes large dogs but doesn’t really care for small ones.   She has not been around children in her former home but she does like people.   She is housebroken and knows some basic commands.   This girl loves to get out and about!  She enjoys her walks with our volunteers and has good leash manners.

There is still lots of puppy playfulness left in Aria.  After all, she is only 8 months old.   She is a typical sable teenage puppy – high energy, playful  but also sweet and snuggly.  She can’t wait to continue her training so she can impress you with how quickly she can learn.

She will do best in an active home that understands and enjoys the GSD personality.  We do not recommend a home with small children for this girl due to her high energy.   What this girl needs is a home dedicated to continuing her training so she can blossom in the great dog she is destined to become.

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 Our adoption donation is minimum $350.00 plus $25.00 for microchip for adult dogs and $450 plus $25.00 microchip for puppies 1 year and under. 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.
