Candace Korne

Although Candace Korne is not a German Shepherd, she is a loyal watchdog. She is a thin 4.5 lbs and is a young 6-7 years old. We just couldn’t leave this sweet little lady in the shelter. She is currently in a foster home with a German Shepherd, two little dogs and a cat and she gets a long with everyone. Her favorite place to be is in a warm lap. She would like a home with someone who has a lot of time and love to give. At night she cuddles right up with you.

Here is an update on Candy from her foster mom-

Candy is a great little girl who was highly stressed at what she has been through. She is not a dog who should have EVER been in the shelter, and she was there for 7 days. After the 7 days, she had surgery and then was taken to a fellow volunteers home. Then, 4 days later she came to our home…another shock to her sweet little system. At our home, after a initial 24 hour period of anxiety over being left again, she absolutely settled in. She is good with big dogs and little dogs, and stays out of the way of a two year old little girl. She is even good with my cranky 16 year old cat. She just hangs out and wants love. She will follow you everywhere you go. She knows how to sit even. I know if someone could invest the time initially in Candy and get through the first couple of days they will see the Candy I see. She is extremely loving and is a very balanced dog. Obviously she has been through a lot and has bonded to me, but she deserves better than my home. We already have two princesses here, and Candy deserves to be the princess in a home with less going on. She would like the company of another dog, however.
She is potty trained and sleeps through the night in her little bed next to my bed. We had her up in our bed, but she prefers to sleep in her little bed next to us. She will come up and snuggle in the morning. She eats very well, and loves to go on walks. She is very good once you get out of the house…but very excited and barky when the leashes first come out.
She listens and is learning. I have been rescuing dogs for almost 11 years now, and I think Candy is one of the special ones. We will wait for the right home for her, we just hope it comes quickly for Candy’s sake. She is a very loving little girl and attaches very quickly so we want her in her forever home as soon as possible

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.
