I Love To Cuddle!

It’s hard to believe it but Sweetheart ended up in a crowded public animal shelter taking her chances with Life and Death. Her chances at finding a loving, forever home looked grim so we plucked her out of her cement kennel and got her into a safe and loving foster home. Now, Sweetheart is ready to find a forever family that will treat her like the treasure that she is.

Sweetheart is a puppy and with that comes all of the puppy traits–pleasant and not so pleasant. Puppies are a tremendous amount of work and require leadership, training and most of all, the investment of time. Please think very hard about whether you have the time to invest in raising a puppy properly before you apply to adopt Sweetheart.

As we learn more about our adorable munchkin, we will update her profile. We know that she loves the company of her GSD foster brother, so we think she would enjoy a home with another playful dog. She mimics her buddy’s every move and every action. She’s even crate trained already!

To arrange to meet Sweetheart, please complete the online application first and then contact Berrysheetmetal@aol.com for more information.

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.
