Eli and Bella III

Thanks to an alert good Samaritan, Eli and Bella are resting safely and comfortably in a cozy foster home after a harrowing experience. These two adorable bundles of fluff were found on a shooting range where they could have easily been hit by a stray bullet!!! Thank goodness someone kind had keen eyes and spotted them!

Eli and Bella are shepherds mixed with something small. They are in in suprisingly good condition in spite of their ordeal. We suspect that they will both remain on the smaller side as they mature. They have already been vaccinated, dewormed and bathed–all on their first day with GSROC! The pups appear to be mostly shepherd–Eli is a fluffy little fellow and Bella has a shorter, neater coat. They have already met their foster pack and they blended in as if they had always been there!

Eli and Bella are available together or individually. Of course, we would love it if they could each have a canine playmate to keep them company.

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.
