I love to go for walks!Volunteer Favorite!No cats

Dahlia is between 3-4 years young. She gave birth to a litter of puppies in a crowded animal shelter and didn’t care much for her motherly duties. She was much more interested in playing! We promised Dahlia that we would find her a great family that will appreciate her outgoing nature.

Dahlia is great around children, adults, and other dogs, but no kitties, please. She’s quiet, housebroken and she walks beautifully on a leash. Dahlia is an all around great family dog who is longing to be someone’s special girl. She does a happy dance of joy when she sees volunteers that she recognizes, and we want to see her dancing with happiness over a great new home.

If you want a dog that you can take everywhere with you, Dahlia is your girl! She has a smile for everyone that she meets! We are asking a $350 adoption donation for Dahlia plus $25 donation for microchip fee. Donations are tax deductible and all proceeds go back to allow us to save more dogs. We have no paid staff!

To arrange to meet Dahlia, please complete the online application first and then contact for more details.

If you would like to meet Dahlia, 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.
