I Like Kitties!UPDATED BIO!

18 month old Makayla is a sweet girl who has classic good looks and markings. Like many others, she ended up in a high kill shelter through no fault of her own.

She is safe with GSROC and is staying in a foster home. She quickly made friends with the dogs in that home – she was so happy to have playmates! She has good doggie manners, is housebroken and likes to meet people.

Makayla is only 18 months old and still has some puppy traits. She loves to play, run and romp. However, when her foster mom leaves the house to run errands, Makayla understands and waits politely for her return.

At a recent event, Makayla impressed everyone with her calm manner. She politely said hello to new people and loved all the attention she received. Makayla gave kisses to new dogs she met both large and small. She is a friendly girl and likes to be popular.

Recently she was introduced to the cat in her foster home. Makayla is cat tolerant. We believe with proper introduction, she will be able to live with a cat.

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.
