Meet Kiley–ever so smiley! This 1 year old black and tan shepherd mix has an expressive face and big, bright eyes. She is on the petite side and will remain approximately 40-45 pounds, making her the perfect choice for someone who wants the looks of a shepherd in a compact body. Rescued from a very high kill animal shelter in Bakersfield, Kiley made her way into our rescue thanks to the networking of several kind individuals who arranged for her safe passage. She is a playful, affectionate and very curious pup who would benefit from a basic obedience class. Kiley is a little distrustful of other dogs, so she needs a few days to get to know them. She plays too roughly for smaller dogs, so we do not recommend her for a family with dogs smaller than she is.
Kiley will do best with a family that can give her gentle discipline and direct her energies. We believe that she is a mix between a German Shepherd and another active breed, such as an Australian cattle dog or heeler, so she would love to be in an active environment.
Kiley is in a foster home where she is learning house manners. To arrange to meet her, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 714-993-9594 and complete the online application to expedite the adoption process.

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.
