I'm very confidentI Need An Experienced OwnerNo cats or small dogs

Desi is a beautiful dog from European working lines. She is very svelte and compact. Desi has not had a great life so far, so we’ve made it our mission to change that for her. She has had countless litters of puppies but has never had the joy of having her own family.

Desi does not want to share her home with any other animals, however, she adores people of all sizes and loves to snuggle and cuddle.

We are desperately seeking a permanent foster home for Desi, with GSROC paying for her food and approved veterinary care, as Desi was diagnosed with mammary cancer. We have removed as many of the tumors as we could, but Desi is terminally ill. We are seeking a home where she can relax and feel comfort for whatever time she has left. If you are an individual who finds fulfillment in comforting those in need, please contact There will be no cost to you–GSROC will cover Desi’s costs for comfort and care.

For more information about Desi, please contact ASAP.

If you would like to meet Desi, 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.
