Adult home needed
5 year old Duchess is a strikingly beautiful blonde and black female Shepherd. Her eyes
appear to have her eyeliner applied each day which explains as to why she is a bit of a Diva. She would do best in a home where she is the sole focus as all cameras should be on her.
Duchess has quite the sense of humor and is a lot of fun. She doesn’t chew on objects but she does find the need to redecorate by placing your clothes in a more appealing location.
She can be somewhat timid when you first meet her but we believe she just wants to make sure you can be included into her inner circle. Once you gain acceptance, she will shower you with lots of love and kisses. Being the Diva that she is, she is proud to show off her prized possessions but make no mistake the objects belong to her.
She is calm when she makes her appearances at the dog park but usually sticks by your side to make sure no one snatches you away. She is very loyal and has all the royalty of a true Shepherd.
female If you would like to meet Duchess, 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.
