Let's go hiking!CHECK OUT MY NEW PHOTOS!

10 month old Lexa is a Belgian Malinois mix who is ready to start a new chapter in her life.   She has just arrived from a far away shelter where she impressed the staff with her friendly nature.  Lexa is friendly, happy and likes to meet new people.

She walks easily on a leash and likes to trot along by your side.  Lexa is happy to meet other dogs and makes friends easily.  That being said, Lexa is a Belgian Malinois, meaning she is very smart and super charged with energy.  Malinois have a very high drive and are not couch potatoes.  Lexa needs a home that is familiar with this breed and enjoys all they bring to the table.  She is not the right dog for a family who has never had a german shepherd.

Lexa will do best in a home that can provide her with the structure and limits she needs.  Lexa sometimes views her role as the protector and she needs a strong leader so she understands she does not need to take on the role of leader.


If you would like to meet Lexa, 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.
