I'm Housebroken!I Love To Play!I donated blood to a police K9!No cats

UPDATE 2/15/2011

Our girl is now recovered and hoping to find a new home. Her sweet personality is very apparent – she is playful and interacts very well with all dogs and people.

An active home would be great for her as she is always ready to play. We believe until she can polish up her basic training skills, she would do best in a home with older children. Her exuberance may be a bit too much for tiny toddlers.

She is housebroken, crate trained.

UPDATE 01/31/2011

Bridgette is almost fully recovered and is more playful than ever. She has a lot of energy now that she is feeling better, and loves to play with other large dogs. She is also friendly with small dogs, but no kitties for this girl.

She definitely needs some training to tame some of that energy, but once she calms she is as loving as can be. She like children, but she is clueless about her size and tends to knock them over inadvertently! We recommend a home with older kids who can run and play with her.

12/7/10 Bridgette has joined us. It must have been her lucky day when she caught the eye of one of our volunteers who was driving to work on the freeway! Bridget was laying in the vegetation, with a fractured leg, unable to walk. She was cold, wet and shivering as she was laying close to the sprinkler on the side of the freeway. With the help of the CHP, the volunteer was able to load her in her car and get her safely to one of our vets. No microchip, no collar or tags…no way of knowing who she belonged to. During the whole ordeal, Bridgette was extremely sweet and never growled or barked, just wagged her tail and let out a little whimper of pain.

Once at the vet, it was determined she had a fractured ulna bone and a bruised lung. She gave kisses to the volunteer and vet staff thanking us for helping her. GSROC could not let this kid suffer, and offered to take her into their safety net. Any donation to help with her vet bills would be appreciated.

If you are interested in meeting her, please complete an online application and contact for more information.

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.
