We hear it over and over and over… “We’re moving and we have to get rid of our dog” We got that very call about Miss Buffy. This darling little girl who lives to please was being left behind while her family moved on. You are probably asking yourself “How could they?” It happens all the time and it is heartbreaking to those of us in rescue. Miss Buffy was no longer convenient, no longer wanted, and was then discarded like an old sofa.

Well, Miss Buffy got lucky. One of our volunteers heard about this little sweetie and she is now with GSROC. As overloaded as we are, we could not let this darling girl end up in a shelter.

Now, a little about Miss Buffy…She is just a sweetheart and loves her people. She is great with other dogs her own size and possibly smaller dogs. In her previous home she lived with and was great friends with a Pekingese. At a recent adoption event, Buffy greeted everyone with a smile and a wag of her tail. She even gave kisses to a maltese! Who is the lucky family who gets to call this little doll their very own?




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

  • Adult GSDs: $395
  • Purebred GSD Puppies: $495
  • Mixed GSD Puppies: $395
  • Special Senior-to-Senior Adoptions: $295
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.
