I Love Children!Volunteer Favorite!I donated blood to a police K9!No cats or small dogs

Rubie was turned into the shelter when her owner decided they had no time for her. She is a beautiful female, with a medium coat and a bit of a reddish tint to her.

Her birthday is on November 4th and she will be 3 years old. She got along well with her kennelmate, a friendly/submissive pitbull, but, just like most people, can be picky about whom she chooses to hang out with.

She has worked hard on her manners and now walks well on the leash. She likes to make friends with other big dogs, especially boy dogs! She is easy to train, she just needs consistently, love and a strong leader to show her the way.

Rubie is wonderful with kids, and is drawn to them in a crowd!

If you are interested in meeting her, please complete an 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.
