Boots

Aren't I cute?UPDATED BIO!

2 month old Boots was rescued from a homeless encampment by a kind animal lover.  GSROC was contacted for help and we made room in our lifeboat.  Boots is a cute little gsd mix who is bouncy, happy and cuddly.

She is now in a GSROC foster home busily learning all her important puppy skills. She is crate trained.  Filled with energy, this little girl knows some of her basic commands, but sometimes forgets them when she gets excited.  After all, she is only 3 months old, still a baby girl, so that is understandable.

We believe she may be mixed with Corgi based on her looks and her innate urge to herd you.  She will run in circles around your feet and nip at your ankles to try and get you to move the way she wants.  For that reason, we do not believe she will be a good fit for families with small children as that type of behavior may upset them.

This girl may be little, but don’t tell her that. She is quite smart and can be very determined when she chooses.   Yet she is also very attentive and wants to be with you all the time.  Sweet and loving, Boots is always happy to see you.  Her tail seems to be constantly in motion.  She is just a happy, happy girl.

Boots is a very high energy puppy. She has a significant amount of Corgi in her mix and she has strong herding dog traits. She is very mouthy, but she is 3 months old, so starting teething. She is quite smart, determined, a little stubborn. She has a natural heel when walking. She knows basic commands but forgets them when excited, and she is easily excited. She has stamina. She is very playful and affectionate. She is attentive and wants to be with you all the time. She is crate trained but has a little separation anxiety when left.

Boots will do best in an active home as this girl likes to be moving, exploring and having fun.

Please remember, adopting a puppy is not everyone’s cup of tea.  As cute as they are – puppies demand a large investment of time, patience, and training.  They are inquisitive, have endless energy and get into just about everything.  They dig, chew, and seemingly never stop! Think long and hard about your lifestyle.

If you are not willing to invest the time and training to ensure your puppy matures into the wonderful dog – then please consider an older dog.

PLEASE NOTE.  PUPPIES ARE SHOWN BY APPOINTMENT ONLY.  THEY DO NOT COME TO ADOPTION EVENTS.  PLEASE SUBMIT YOUR APPLICATION AND A COUNSELOR WILL CONTACT YOU DIRECTLY.

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.
