Marie arrived at GSROC in a family way. Thanks to a wonderful volunteer, Marie had her large litter in the safety and comfort of a foster home. Marie’s pups have all found homes, so now it’s her turn.
She came to us frightened and dog reactive, and we have invested in professional training to help her overcome her fears. Marie would do best in a home that is experienced with shepherds that have suffered emotional trauma such as abandonment. She takes a little time to warm up to new people, but when you are patient and kind, she will quickly become your best friend in the world. An adult home is required, please. She needs a quiet home that has minimal visitors as she does not always like strangers.
She knows her basic commands and is eager to learn more. She will do best as the only dog as Marie believes she needs to be the focus of your attention.
female If you would like to meet Marie, please complete the online application and an adoption counselor will contact you.
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.
