Ciara was dumped at a shelter by some folks that the shelter staff believed to be her former family, although the family would not admit so to the shelter staff. When GSROC attended a major adoption event, Ciara was being shown by the animal shelter. At the end of the day, when Ciara had not been adopted, the shelter staff begged us to save her life so that Ciara would not have to return to the shelter…which would have probably been a death sentence if the facility was crowded.

Ciara is very silly and sweeat and she is attentive to what is going on around her. Ciara appears to possibly have a touch of another breed (possibly Chow?) mixed in to add to her beauty. She has a flowing, fluffy coat and looks like a miniature lioness. She likes other dogs but is a little too rough for dogs that are smaller than she is.

Someone trained Ciara to “sit”, “shake”, and lie “down” before she got to us. (Well, the “down” looks more like a “roll over”, but it’s adorable.) As sweet as Ciara is, we do not recommend her for a family with children as she doesn’t know her physical limits. An active, adult-only home would be ideal for this little “fluffer-nutter”.

If you are interested in meeting her, please complete an application online and then contact Mdalescomm@aol.com 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

  • Adult GSDs: $395
  • Purebred GSD Puppies: $495
  • Mixed GSD Puppies: $395
  • Special Senior-to-Senior Adoptions: $295
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.
