I'm a "velcro dog"!Volunteer Favorite!

Cinder is a gorgeous sable girl with a lovely disposition. She has been a wonderful and gentle momma to her puppies, allowing our volunteers to handle them and pet them as she nursed them. Now, Cinder is ready to find a forever home of her own where she can be the center of attention.

Cinder is a young adult spayed female with a burning desire to have her own people.
She plays well with other dogs at or near her size and can be taught to be the same towards small ones. She is quiet and sensitive–a very soft sable coated leggy girl working on regaining her long sleek body after her pregnancy.

Cinder is house broken, but she is not a fan of crates. She wants to be right by your side and will quickly grab your heart with her sweet, soft, sensitive manner. She would do best in a quiet home, but can rally to play with active dogs–as long as her people aren’t far away and would love to be your companion on those long walks.

If you raise your voice too much when correcting her, she will flatten to the ground in submission. Her desire to please her people will make her a cinch to teach through gentle leadership. This would include teaching her that the house cats are OK since right now they are objects of extreme curiosity. Cinder rides well in a car and walks beautifully on a leash.

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.
