Maggy is a tomgirl who loves to instigate play time. She will “talk” to her fellow canine pals until they get the message to toss away their cares and romp and play! Maggy has a short, neat coat and a solid build, weighing around 65 pounds. She seemed a bit confused at being inside a house for the first time, but quickly got the hang of things and settled in beautifully! Maggy loves to give kisses and if that doesn’t work for you, she’ll give you her paw!

Update 9/6/06
Maggy is a total sweetheart. She is outstanding on a leash (she heels perfectly), and even walks well with other dogs. She is housebroken and sleeps 9-10 hours through the night in her crate if it is covered with a sheet. On a trip to the vet, everyone (including the vet) was marvelling at the fact that she is a rescue, given her good behavior and excellent health. She is trained to sit/stay before she eats or goes out to potty. When the doorbell rings, she rushes to the door to greet visitors, but will not take off when the door is opened. She is a super affectionate and happy dog.

Maggy will do best in a home where she is the only dog or lives with another alpha dog. She plays well with other dogs her size, but will take every opportunity to dominate a meeker one, so it is best if her playmates are able to stand up to her.

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.
