I'm Housebroken!I Need A Sponsor!CHECK OUT MY NEW PHOTOS!

Piper is a beautiful, gentle, confused 4-5 year old arrived with a horrible skin condition–possibly mange, possibly a yeast infection–that had claimed all of her fur. Piper pleaded with her eyes to be rescued and a wonderful volunteer rescued her JUST in the knick of time. It seems that her skin condition would have been a death sentence for this beautiful girl and we couldn’t let that happen.

Piper gets along with small dogs as well as large dogs, but she is a little interested in kitties so the jury is still out on that. Her greatest pleasure is to be with her special person or people as a constant shadow. She is a total love!

UPDATE 12/20
After several weeks of tender loving care and plenty of soothing, medicated baths, Piper’s beautiful fur is returning nicely. Her coat is soft and we expect it to eventually be completely restored. We have learned that Piper is housebroken and loves the company of other dogs. Her foster mom reports that she is a perfect house guest. Piper’s condition was a result of poor diet and sheer neglect so we feel grateful to all of the supporters who made it possible for us to get her the treatment that she required.

Piper is ready to find her happily ever after ending. To arrange to meet this gentle spirit, please complete the online application first and then contact

If you would like to meet Piper, please complete the online application and an adoption counselor will contact you.

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.
