Katie II was rescued from an a crowded animal shelter when her time there ran out. She is a gorgeous black and tan girl who was mislabled as a shepherd mix by animal control staff. Thankfully, GSROC was able to pluck her out of the shelter just in time. Katie II has the biggest, brownest, sweetest eyes! She has a very endearing habit of wanting to hold your hand…she’s not obnoxious about it, but it’s obvious that she takes comfort from it so we let her show us her affection.
UPDATE: 12/23 Katie II has been keeping a very big secret! Our boarding facility called us just before Christmas to tell us that they found a healthy newborn male puppy in Katie’s kennel! Our girl was so skinny that we didn’t even know that she was pregnant! We rushed Katie II to our vet where she delivered 2 more healthy puppy boys! We’re happy to report that momma and puppies are doing great (but our volunteers are still recovering from shock). It is too soon to tell if the puppies are purebred shepherds or not, but it’s not likely. They will be ready for adoption in early March.
UPDATE 1/20/06 The puppies are 4 weeks old now and starting to be friskier. We think they are mixed with something large–possibly a malamute because they have some white markings. One puppy has 4 white socks on! The puppies will be ready to go in approximately three weeks. They will be altered before they are go to their new homes.
UPDATE 2/24/06 All of Katie’s puppies have found their happy endings, so now it’s Katie’s turn! She needs a home with someone who is a good leader.
Katie II is very strong and very agile. We think that she would do very well in dog agility or another active pursuit. She is extremely intuitive and she doesn’t miss a thing that’s going on in her surroundings. She is not good with small dogs.

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.
