I Like Kitties!Please Sponsor My Vet Care

Katie has beautiful feminine features and a gentle personality. We think she would do very well in a gentle, calmer home environment. She is ‘condo sized’ and will not grow too large, probably 55 pounds at full size. Right now, Katie is intimidated around other dogs but we are working with her to help her learn to trust. She gets a little frightened by new situations like walking into the Petsmart store on the linoleum, but we are helping her gain confidence–we suspect that Katie was a pup that was left in a back yard and given very little socialization or direction.

Katie is a sweet and gentle little girl who will make a wonderful best friend. She gets along with other dogs, big and small and even cats. Katie is living in “kennel free” boarding where she is a member of a family of dogs and she does very well.

12/12/08 We just learned Katie was born with a slight heart defect. Diagnosed with tricuspid dysplasia by Dr. Lesser (DVM Diplomate ACVIM Cardiology) surgery is not an option for her. However, Dr. Lesser said she will live a normal active life. Katie sure doesn’t let anything slow her down!

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.
