6 month old Skittles was picked up as a stray and landed in a crowded shelter. She is a petite girl with a sweet personality. She has some scarring on both of her back legs, which we believe could possibly be rope burns. Poor little thing! GSROC stepped in to give her a new start in life.
Skittles is chock full of energy and likes to have fun! Filled with curiosity, this girl loves to explore. It is obvious that her prior home did not give her a great deal of training and she is looking for a home that will help her learn all those important doggy skills. She wants to learn and can’t wait to get started.
Please remember, adopting a puppy is not everyone’s cup of tea. As cute as they are – puppies demand a large investment of time, patience, and training. They are inquisitive, have endless energy and get into just about everything. They dig, chew, and seemingly never stop! Think long and hard about your lifestyle.
If you are not willing to invest the time and training to ensure your puppy matures into the wonderful dog – then please consider an older dog.
PLEASE NOTE. PUPPIES ARE SHOWN BY APPOINTMENT ONLY. THEY DO NOT COME TO ADOPTION EVENTS. PLEASE SUBMIT YOUR APPLICATION AND A COUNSELOR WILL CONTACT YOU DIRECTLY.
female If you would like to meet Skittles, 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.
