I'm Housebroken!Volunteer Favorite!Special Needs

Trixie is a beautiful girl looking for love. Her family suffered financial hardship and was forced to give her up. Trixie likes other dogs her own size. She needs a home that won’t expect her to be a jogger or a hiker, as she has a spinal condition that makes her weaker in her hindquarters. Due to this condition, we recommend a home with no small children.

Xrays revealed something unique about Trixie: She has one extra vertebra in her spine. The extra vertebra is not connected to the spinal column, hence the nerves in spine are not gettig their messages through to her tail and hips. She is not in pain, but she can’t sense when she is standing tall and when she is not. There is no cure for her condition–our vet recommends non-steroidal joint relief medication and an orthopedic bed for Trixie so that she will be comfortable.

Trixie deserves to be treasured and pampered. Please consider giving this beautiful girl a loving home.

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.
