Belle lost her home when her owner became terminally ill. She was passed from one situation to another during this time. None of them were ideal.
A kind animal lover found Belle alone and despondent. Belle didn’t understand the change in her circumstances and was trying to reunite with her former owner. Unfortunately, this was not to be.
This middle aged dog has so much love and loyalty to give – all she needs is a family to give her a chance. She is 8 years old and has lots of doggie wisdom. She knows not to chew, destroy furniture, dig holes outside, etc. Most importantly, she knows how to give complete loyalty and unconditional love to her people.
Belle likes other dogs. We have not introduced her to cats yet.

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.
