I've Had Training!Future Best Friend!UPDATED BIO!

Chanel is an 18 month old young lady who has relied on her good looks and charm to get her way. Cute little puppy moves and a wagging tail usually got her what she wanted. As she grew older and bigger however, this technique didn’t work as well as when she was a cuddly puppy. She suddenly found herself out of favor and left high and dry in a high kill shelter. Frightened and unsure, Chanel reacted as many teenagers would – she became cranky hoping her bad mood would make everyone leave her alone so she could sulk in silence.

GSROC saw right through that ploy. We sat her down and explained the rules – work with us and we will find you a great new home. Chanel is as smart as she looks. She put her nose to that proverbial grindstone and learned all that we asked of her. She has passed obedience training and loves to show off what she knows.

Chanel loves her ball – if you want to play ball, you will own her heart. She likes car rides and enjoys meeting people.

If you would like to meet Chanel, please complete the online application and an adoption counselor will contact you.

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.
