18 month old Skylar is a sweet, happy girl who likes people. Her owner could no longer care for her due to an injury she suffered. Skylar has a birth defect in her front legs which cause her feet to turn outward – when she stands, she looks like a little ballerina. She is so thrilled to be a part of GSROC – she knows her future will be brighter now.
Skylar spent some time in a GSROC foster home. Unfortunately, the small dog in the home would not accept her and said Skylar had to go. Here is the report from the foster family :
This girl couldn’t be sweeter. She is very affectionate and loves people. We had quite a few strangers in our home over the long weekend and she was very open to meeting them and getting attention. She walks well on the leash and knows some basic commands – sit, down, shake. She is house trained and picked up quickly the routine.
She was very calm about being placed in our side yard/run during the daytime July 4th festivities at our house. She just chilled while all the action was going on steps from the gate. She got regular visits during the afternoon and was okay with the coming and going of that…no crying etc. when left in the run. She also did really well with the fireworks; didn’t even phase her. She will come over to get some attention and then go lay down on the dog bed or on a rug; she will lay on the bare floor, but she definitely finds it easier to get up and down from a rug or dog bed vs. the slippery hardwood floor.
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 Our adoption donation is minimum $350.00 plus $25.00 for microchip for adult dogs and $450 plus $25.00 microchip for puppies 1 year and under. 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.
