Little Phoebe


Age: 4 months

Phoebe has an amazingly soft and silky coat that feels so good against your skin! She is a big snuggle-muffin who gets along nicely with other dogs. (She’s in a foster home with 5 dogs and she loves all the action.) Phoebe is fairly mellow for a puppy and has mastered the art of crate training very quickly. We think she is going to be a pretty good-sized adult based on her structure. If we had to guess, based on her coat and her personality, we’d say that she is probably mixed with golden retriever.

Like all puppies, Phoebe will require leadership, training and lots of patience! She wants to please her special people, but she’s at the stage where she has to be taught how to do this. Of course, she’s a quick learner and she responds very well to affection and praise. Before you apply to adopt any dog, please think about whether you can truly commit to caring for a dog for the remainder of its life–in Phoebe’s case, look into the future for 10-12 years and ask yourself whether you can be there for her come what may thoughout that period.

If you think you can provide her with stability, love and leadership, please complete the online application first and then contact to arrange a meeting.

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.
