I Like Kitties!I'm ShyUPDATED BIO!

This sweet girl found herself alone and unwanted. Kind animal lovers found her and tried to find her owners but were unsuccessful. She has a sweet nature and is friendly. She gets alone with other dogs. Shelby is good in the car and walks easily on a leash.

Shelby is very confused right now – and is timid when she first meets new people. So much has happened to this cute girl in a very short amount of time – she doesn’t know which way is up! A warm, loving home is what this girl needs to help her feel more secure.

She is now in a GSROC foster home. She gets along well with the GSD and the little dog that lives there. She was shy at first, but warms up when given affection. She walks easily on a leash. Shelby is eager to be adopted so she can show how smart she is once she starts obedience classes.

Recently we introduced her to some cats. She sniffed them politely and then was indifferent to 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.
