Mia and Layla were adopted as small puppies, but unfortunately, their family failed to give them proper training and leadership. The girls are sweet and active and they crave affection. They are mixed with something small, making them perfect for a condo or townhome. The girls do not need to find a home together, but we would like them to each find a home with another playful dog.

Mia and Layla are at a great age for obedience training to help them understand what is expected of them. They could use some work on their leash manners, but they love to interact with other friendly dogs of all sizes. Shepherds respond amazingly well to positive leadership and we know that Mia and Layla are eager to learn.

The girls appear to be mixed with sheltie or something similar in size as they are full grown at about 50 pounds each. They have charming pixie-ish faces and they love to be cuddled.

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.
