CHECK OUT MY NEW PHOTOS!No cats or small dogs

One year old Barbie arrived from a far away location.  This Sharpei mix had obviously spent time on her own  as her coat was rough and she is very protective of her food.  Living on the street and depending on others for safety – Barbie has not had an easy life.   She is at ease with other people but did not like other dogs.

Fast forward a few weeks and Barbie has made great strides thanks to the hard work of our volunteers.   She has been introduced to some of the other GSROC dogs and spent time with them on pack walks.   Currently her “Barbie fan club” includes Megan, Bandit and Kris Kringle and Natasha just to name a few.   Barbie is working to become less reactive around dogs she hasn’t met.   She doesn’t immediately accept strange dogs into her “inner ciricle of friends” – but then again,  how many people do you know that immediately embrace strangers?   Barbie takes time to get to know other dogs and once that is complete, she includes them in her social circle.

If you would like to meet Barbie, 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.
