Blondie is a beautiful cream and black colored girl. She is very petite, weighing in at only 47 lbs! Once she gets on a proper diet and receives some much needed love, she should fill out to around 55 lbs.
Blondie was rescued from a local shelter when her time ran out. Blondie is fearful of other dogs so she will need an owner or family that can gradually introduce her to canine friends. She is longing to learn how to play, but her fears hold her back.
Blondie came to us with a very bad case of pneumonia which we nursed her through successfully. Now, she is strong, healthy and ready to find her very own family.
Blondie would prefer to be in a home with either a strong or really silly male dog. She did not chase the neighbor kitty at her foster home, and actually was scared of it! She absolutely LOVES people and responds positively to all kids. Blondie is housebroken, and very loving. She just needs to be just given some gentle training and time to relax, learn the rules and learn right from wrong. We are all so eager for Blondie to learn how much FUN it can be to be a dog–we suspect that she has never had a chance to just relax and be silly.
UPDATE 8/4/06 We have seen a tremendous improvement in Blondie now that she is feeling better! She is still a little apprehensive around new dogs, but she is willing to accept dogs that greet her politely. She has come out of her shell and she is a complete lover–she would love to cuddle on your lap if you would let her! Blondie can definitely learn to live with other friendly dogs providing that she is introduced properly.

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.
