6 month old Jill is a Kelpie/Australian Shepherd mix, we believe.  While we may not be totally certain of her parentage, one this we do know…Jill is very food motivated.  This girl is SMART SMART SMART. Her foster mother watched in amazement as Jill worked different methods for over an hour to try and open the refrigerator.  She had watched her foster mother put the leftovers away and decided she wanted more!   When she couldn’t get the door open, she decided to sit at full attention and bark at it.  This girl doesn’t give up easily, that’s for sure.

Jill plays well with the foster dogs in her family.  The cat in the home has made sure Jill understands correct kitty cat manners as well.  She loves playing with the children in the home and is always ready for a game of fetch.

Puppies are cute and cuddly and these puppies are no exception. However, they are also full of energy, curiosity and playfulness – just like all other puppies. Puppies will dig, chew and get into all sorts of things in your home. It’s what puppies do. So, please think long and hard about adopting a puppy. They require time, training and lots of work to develop into a wonderful adult dog. If this does not fit into your lifestyle, then please consider an older dog.

If you would like to meet Jill, 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.
