At just 2 years old, Heidi found herself abandoned by her family at a crowded animal shelter. Even worse, while she was there, she came down with the doggie sniffles, which made her less adoptable to the public. Thankfully, our kind-hearted volunteer would not let Heidi be destroyed! She drove several hours to bring Heidi into our safety net so that she can find her happily ever after ending.

Heidi is a medium-sized girl who loves attention. She is very alert and learns quickly. She would prefer to be the queen of the castle, but she would consider living with a friendly male dog her own size.

Heidi is in a foster home. To arrange to meet her, please complete the online application to tell us more about yourself and then contact Mdalescomm@aol.com for more details.




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.
