I Love To Cuddle!Please Sponsor My Vet Care

Barbie was living on borrowed time at a local high kill shelter, when we received a plea for help from one of the shelter staff. She had been at the shelter for nearly 2 months and the shelter held onto her because she is absolutely wonderful.

Barbie is a quiet girl and loves to have roommates! She loves to play with other dogs and walks perfectly on a leash. She thinks that cuddling is an excellent way to spend her free time with you and everyone that sees her comments on how beautiful she is.

Barbie is about 6 years old but she is such a good and calm girl. She would fit into any household like she had lived there for years.

Barbie has a mass on her stomach and we dont know if it is a tumor, but no one has been willing to take a chance to see if it is benign. GSROC would like to give Barbie a second chance, but we need donations or a big-hearted german shepherd loving person to help us with her medical needs. Can you pledge a gift to help us have Barbie’s tumor removed and biopsied so we can determine what her health truly is?

All reports about Barbie are glowing—we know that we have a special gem here and we want to help her feel her best. Please help Barbie if you are able so that she will have a chance at being adopted.

To arrange to meet Barbie, please complete the online application first and then contact for more details.

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.
