Peppermint Patti


Age: 2 years

This little 2 year old girl was a favorite of the shelter staff at a very high kill shelter. When she was slated to be euthanized (aka killed) due to space constraints, they pleaded with us to save her. Boy, did they pick a winner! Patti is sweet and affectionate but not in an overbearing way. She will remain on the small side and she seems to get along nicely with other dogs.

Something (bad) must have happened to Patti’s tail in her life before she came to GSROC because it looks as if it has been severed. We think her shorter tail gives her a unique, jaunty look that goes along with her happy personality!

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.
