I'm Housebroken!Volunteer Favorite!UPDATED BIO!

Violet is a sweet girl who found herself in a “family way.” Like a good mom, she devoted herself to ensuring that her babies got a good start in life. Sorrel, Heath and Lotus have all been adopted and are in their new loving homes.

Violet is a WONDERFULLY SWEET smaller 55 pound girl around 5 years old with great energy, yet mellow in the home: ready to walk or hike miles when you are, or lay by your side lovingly while working. Violet is so wonderful her foster mom can trust her at work around patients and clients. Violet has wonderful manners and would even do well in a condo or townhome. She currently lives in her foster home with a small doggy and obnoxious large puppy friend. With playful dogs she will gladly wrestle and chase.

We have exposed her to cats and while she gets excited, we believe with proper introduction, Violet’s maternal nature could live with feline pals. She is also wonderful in the car and would do well on road trips.

Violet loves children and is silly playful yet still gentle.

Violet came in as a good doggy mom herself and devoted herself to ensuring that her babies got a good start in life.

Violet has a sweet personality and is very friendly. At a recent adoption event she was next to a puppy who was getting a lot of attention. She very sweetly sidled over and made her presence known – as if to say….”hey! I’m cute too – will you be my friend?”

She walks easily on a leash and knows some basic commands.

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.
