Every now and then, someone will say to us, “The dogs in animal shelters are all problem dogs”, we tell them stories of dogs like Bella, who just 8 months ago was a beloved puppy, excited to start her life with a loving family, but ended up cast off like trash because the parents expected a CHILD to take care of her!

Bella is a true gem. She is happy and loves other dogs. She knows how to ‘sit’, ‘lie down’ and ‘stay’ (as long as a puppy can stay!)She rides like a dream in the car and she is as smart as a whip—learning with only one correction if she makes a mistake. Bella will remain on the smaller side. She has a little bit of an impish nature which makes her adorable.

If you are interested in meeting Bella, please complete the online application first and then contact Mdalescomm@aol.com for more details.

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

  • Adult GSDs: $395
  • Purebred GSD Puppies: $495
  • Mixed GSD Puppies: $395
  • Special Senior-to-Senior Adoptions: $295
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.
