I Play Well With Others!UPDATED BIO!

One year old Riley is a pretty girl who likes other large dogs but doesn’t care for small ones.  She is good with children and is housebroken.   She has a strong personality and can be protective over her home, typical traits in a strong minded young girl.  Her family turned to GSROC for assistance.

We enrolled her in a training class to help her learn her limits.  She is a very smart, fun loving and energetic young girl who gets along with other large dogs.  Riley sometimes believes she should be in charge, so a submissive dog would probably be best.  She will thrive in a home that will continue providing her with the structure and limits she craves.   For now, we believe she will do best in a home without small children.

She needs somebody experienced who can maintain boundaries and give her the structure  she craves.  She walks nicely on the leash and knows basic commands, sometimes her energy gets the best of her, but then again she is still very much a puppy.

If you would like to meet Riley, 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.
