When you meet Roy and Rosie it will be hard for you to believe that two such precious, young calm and quiet dogs have experienced abandonment, but it’s true. We learned about two sweet pups from a fellow rescuer who told us that Roy and Rosie were living in a field among a pack of dogs! We are grateful to this animal advocate for saving these babies from certain tragedy and for helping to get them to safety.
We had no idea what to expect, but we knew that we had to help. When Roy and Rosie arrived, they had a mesmerizing affect on everyone who met them! They have very ‘soft’ personalities and love to be cuddled. They are very closely bonded and must go to a home together. From what we have observed, they don’t bear any detectable emotional scars from their ordeal. They have been spayed/neutered, microchipped, vaccinated, dewormed and had frontline applied for flea protection.
Roy and Rosie are probably shepherd mixes and we don’t believe that they will grow much larger than they are now. They are approximately 8 months old and weigh around 45 pounds each. They have soft, thick coats that are remarkably well kept considering that they were living on their own. Roy and Rosie will snuggle up and sleep in your lap if you let them—they just crave human affection. They are not terrible on leashes, but they could use some work on their obedience skills.
We think that the twins would be happiest in a stable, calm home where they will have someone home with them a great deal of the time. Please do not apply to adopt these precious babies unless you are prepared to commit to them for their entire lifetimes—approximately 11-13 years. We will only consider applications that are interested in adopting the dogs as a pair. The adoption donation for the pair is $600.00 which will only cover a portion of the costs of the veterinary care that we have provided for them.

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.
