2 year old Koko is looking for a fresh start with a family that is familiar with the energy, intellect and power of a Belgian Malinois. You see, Koko is a busy girl, busy, busy, busy – just like all malinois are. She is happiest when she has a job to do. She can also jump really high and likes to do that to get your attention. Koko is NOT a couch potato and is not meant for a family who is not active.
Koko is a smart, smart girl. She loves to learn. Koko also likes squeaky toys and kong toys. She will do best in a home without small dogs. Like many malinois dogs, she has a very strong prey drive.
Koko loves to be brushed and will happily sit by your side as long as you brush her. She wants to look her best at all times. And yet, she really doesn’t like to pose for photos. It’s as if, once she knows she is looking good – she doesn’t have time to get her picture taken – she is off doing something else.
Koko is shy when she meets new people, but has made friends with some of our volunteers. This girl is very athletic, like most Malinois are. She needs a secure fence of 6 feet or higher in her yard. She also requires lots of exercise and stimulation. Koko is happiest when she is working, so a job of her own is essential.
female If you would like to meet Koko, 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.
