Can You Please Help Me?Please Foster Me!


This sweet senior girl needs a permanent foster and she needs one NOW.
Her biopsy results are back and it is not good.  The tumor is malignant.  Most of it was able to be removed, but it will be back..We want her to have a home for whatever  amount of time she has left—she is approximately 9-10 years old and wants to be an only dog.
No kids, no cats, quiet home. Doesn’t someone have a neighbor or friend who is looking for
GSROC provides all food and medical support for the rest of Nikki’s life, which
could be months or years for all we know. PLEASE – contact us at BERRYSHEETMETAL@AOL.COM  if you are able to provide her a place to recuperate and enjoy
life. Can’t foster her?   Please donate to help fund her boarding costs. 


Nikki is a sweet girl who needs a quiet, calm home without a lot of commotion. She would be happiest curled up at your feet or watching you do your chores. She is a bit of a couch potato if you let her get away with it. However, she does like walks and car rides.  In fact, when she does go for a walk, her foster mom has told us “this girl can run like the wind!”

Nikki would do best as the only dog in your home – she thinks she is the cat’s meow, and makes sure any dog in the home knows it! Yes, Nikki is an alpha girl. As one volunteer says, “…She only likes toys if they belong to another dog.”

Nikki is housebroken and loves to give kisses.   She will happily sit next to you and listen to your concerns.  As long as she is with her people, Nikki is one happy girl.

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.
