I Play Well With Others!I'm Gentle and Calm

Poor Monet. A good samaritan who happened to be at the dog park with her own pooch saw her wandering around looking for her owner. The samaritan approached her, and found that although she is a little shy, she warms up nicely and is very affectionate.

The samaritan took the dog to the local shelter since she could not keep her, but notified us that she was there. Monet was terrified in the shelter setting, and hid in the back of her run. She was microchipped and spayed…but still, no owner came to claim her.

Monet is now safe with us, and we have promised her we will find her a good, loving home, where she will never be abandoned again.

Monet is friendly with other dogs, and may even get along well with kitties. She knows her basic commands, such as sit, stay and shake. She is on the smaller side, approximately 55 lbs, and has a beautiful black and brindle coat consistent with a dutch shepherd. Here is a link to Dutch Shepherd information–Monet bears a startling resemblance.

If you are interested in meeting her, please complete an online application and then contact for more details.

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.
