I'm Housebroken!

Petra is safe with GSROC now. Rescues were also found for her two buddies.

Petra is good with people, children, dogs and cats. She loves to meet new people and makes friends easily. Once the amenities are out of the way, Petra wants to be smothered with love.

She is a little barky with dogs she doesn’t know but stops immediately when gently corrected. She spent time in a foster home briefly when she was first rescued and had no problems interacting with the dogs there.

Petra did not receive much love in her former home and is somewhat shy at first. Once she realizes you want to be her friend, she can’t get enough affection! She will hug and kiss you if you let her – she just wants to be your pal.

Petra will need a little work with her leash walking. She didn’t get walked at all by her former owners, so walking on leash and waiting for her person was new to her. However, gentle correction works very quickly. She wants to please so badly, she just needs to be shown the way.

She is an affectionate girl and would be a perfect companion for the lucky family that adopts her.

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.
