I'm very confidentUPDATED BIO!

Tilly is a one year old female who loves to play and be active. She has a fluffy coat and a sparkle in her eye.   Tilly likes to play ball and loves to play tug of war.  She is curious and inquisitive and alert to her surroundings.  Like most teenagers, she doesn’t always like to listen but this can be handled with training.   Tilly is a smart girl and will excel in obedience training.  She is good with other dogs, but needs proper introductions and reminders of correct doggy manners.  Our girl is happiest when things go her way.

Due to her exuberance, we do not recommend her for a home with very small children.  Home s with older children and teens would be more suitable.  An active family will be best for Tilly as she thrives on exercise and fun activities.

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.
