I'm Special!Volunteer Favorite!UPDATED BIO!

Taylor is a gorgeous black and brown female purebred German Shepherd who was found running stray and brought to the shelter. She walks well on a leash, thanks to the training that our volunteers are providing.

Taylor can be a bit of a diva around other dogs. She is happy to hang out with them, but has some internal rules that she tries to impose on them. She prefers them not to run around or play ball in her space! We think she would rather have them hang out and quietly admire her beauty! Or maybe, she just likes a sense of order and control – like many divas do.

Currently Taylor is staying in a foster home. She plays easily with her foster brothers and sisters. In addition, she lives with a cat in her foster home. Taylor does not seem particularly interested in the cat and does not chase it. We believe, with the correct introductions, Taylor would be able to live in a home with a cat.

Taylor’s fans recently did a fundraiser and paid for the minor heart surgery she needed. Our vet has stated her prior condition has been corrected and there is no residual damage! This means Taylor no longer has any type of exercise restrictions placed upon her.

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.
