Faithful and AppreciativeUPDATED BIO!

Coco was found wandering the streets. The people that found her searched and searched for her owners but they could not be found–unfortunately, Coco had no ID that could have reunited her with her family.

Coco loves to chase a laser light. She is loving and very energetic. Coco takes a little time to warm up to new people, but once she knows that she can trust you, she becomes very attached. We believe that she would prefer to be an only dog or that she would do best with a large, submissive male dog as she can be selective about the dogs that she likes.

If you are interested in meeting Coco please submit an adoption application and then contact for more information. The minimum donation for adult dogs is $300 plus $25 for microchip, and for puppies 1 yaer and younger is $400 plus $25 for microchip. Your donations are tax deductible and allow us to continue our important work on behalf of homeless dogs.

If you would like to meet Coco, 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.
