Ivy was left behind when her family moved away.   The pool man who serviced the pool on a weekly basis found IVY and and could not leave her behind.  GSROC was contacted and we stepped in to to help Ivy find a family that would not leave her behind.

Ivy is housebroken and likes to meet people.   She likes other friendly large dogs but small dogs are not always her cup of tea.  She will bark at them when she first sees them, but once she realizes they won’t bother her, she settles down.   After all , she is still very much a puppy and needs a home that will provide her with structure and direction.  She is eager to please her people and takes corrections easily.

Ivy is a petite girl with gorgeous markings on her face.  With the dark brown around her eyes, it looks like she has applied makeup before going out for a walk.

If you would like to meet Ivy, 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.
