This sweet girl has just arrived so we will update her bio as we get to know her better. She is currently at our vet’s office where she is getting a complete check up because she arrived alarmingly thin. She is a bit fearful in new situations, but in light of all that she has been through lately, this is not surprising. We are working on building up her strength as well as her confidence.

Maggie Mae’s puppies are with a rescue group that specializes in orphaned puppies. You can visit them at www.cuddlycanines.com.

Maggie Mae desperately needs a foster home. Can you help? Please contact Berrysheetmetal@aol.com if you can be the special person to foster Maggie Mae while she waits for her forever family. If you are interested in becoming Miss Maggie’s forever home, please complete the online application.




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.
