Cuddles and her twin brother, Cupid were abandoned at a local vet’s office by an unkind breeder.  The hospital took them to the animal shelter and GSROC was contacted.  We made room for them in our lifeboat. We then discovered that both of these sweet puppies required surgery to correct a mal-formed hip socket.  As they are twins, they both needed the exact same surgery for the same rear leg.

Cuddles has had her surgery at the leading orthopedic animal hospital in Orange County.  She recovered very well and has now been cleared for adoption.  Cuddles is a sweet female who doesn’t know she walks a bit differently than other dogs.  She just wants to have fun!   She is in a GSROC foster home where she is being well socialized with people and other dogs.  She has been around lots of children, but not very small ones.

She is crate trained, housebroken and knows her basic commands.  She walks well on a leash and loves to go to swimming lessons!   This girl is happiest when she lays with her head on your lap.  She lives up to her name of Cuddles  – it’s her favorite thing to do.

She is a happy, active girl who can enjoy all of the activities of any shepherd, but should not be a jogger.  Hiking, swimming, walks and playing fetch are just the ticket for this girl.  She would love a home with another friendly dog.  But, that is not mandatory.

She would love to meet you!

If you would like to meet Cuddles, 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.
