Greta and her blind brother Gunther lived with an elderly woman whose son and only heir promised to care for her dogs if anything happened to her. When the woman’s health failed and she died, her son ignored her wishes and planned to dump them at the local high-kill shelter. Fortunately, one of the woman’s neighbors called GSROC, and the two dogs fell into our safety net.

Lovely Greta is four years old, spayed, housebroken, crate-trained, and knows how to use a doggie door. She’s well-behaved and gets along with people of all sizes and genders, other dogs (small ones, too – she lived with terriers!), cats, and even birds!! Greta is active and playful and loves to ride in the car.

Greta’s dense, sparkling-white coat feels like bunny fur. In fact, we think her radiant white coat color and one quirky ear that stands straight up all the time makes her look like a huge bunny rabbit! She has liquid brown eyes, dark eyeliner, and pure white lashes. At about 80 lbs, Greta is a substantial, medium-large GSD. Cooperative and very smart, she would respond well to obedience training; she’s currently learning how to walk nicely on a leash.

Greta is in a foster home. To learn more about this deserving “snow bunny,” please complete the online application first to tell us more about yourself. Then, please contact for more details and to arrange a meeting.

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

  • Adult GSDs: $395
  • Purebred GSD Puppies: $495
  • Mixed GSD Puppies: $395
  • Special Senior-to-Senior Adoptions: $295
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.
