I'm Housebroken!UPDATED BIO!No cats or small dogs

Meet Gia! This beautiful girl stops traffic when she walks down the street. She has classic GSD markings and a gorgeous, thick coat. She is more than a pretty face however.  Gia has had some training and knows her basic commands.
Gia is a young girl, not even 2 years old yet. She lost her home due to landlord issues and would so very much like to find a family of her very own.  She lived with teenage children in her former home but has not been around very young children.
Her sweet, friendly nature quickly won over our volunteers and she is now one of their favorites. She loves to spend time with our volunteers learning new things and going for walks in the park.
She walks wonderfully on her leash and is polite to people she meets.
She knows she is a very pretty girl and really prefers to be the only dog in your life.    Gia gets nervous when left alone and will do best in a home with a retired couple or where someone works from home.





If you would like to meet Gia, 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.
