Just one look at Liesl’s classic markings and stance and it is easy to see why someone would use her as a “breeder” before discarding her at a scary shelter.
When Liesl came to GSROC, we learned that she had not been treated well by people in her past. She was so afraid she would hide under tables and tremble with fear. But underneath her fear, Liesl’s foster mom says she is just about the perfect dog.
Once she knows she is safe, Liesl is a lovebug who gives and receives as much affection as she can get. She will raise up and sit on her hind legs penguin style to give hugs and kisses. She enjoys walks, playing with her people and prances happily. Liesl may also be a good tracking dog if someone is inclined to pursue this activity. Liesl is submissive, sweet and understands “No”. She does not require harsh corrections and may still drop to the floor in fear at a voice raised too high.
Her joy at playing with other friendly dogs is a welcome revelation. Among her canine friends are a 5 pound puppy which she plays with so gently, and a male German Shepherd Dog she can joyfully run & chase with. Liesl also received an “A” in Jamboree playtime with other dogs at daycare!
Liesl will positively thrive in a home with someone who will understand her past and continue to provide leadership. She would love a home with a yard and even another friendly dog. We are asking a $300 adoption donation for Liesl plus $25 donation for microchip fee.

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.
