Xena is a 5 year old female who is housebroken, and has good leash manners.   She gets along with friendly male dogs.    She will do best in a home without small children.   She enjoys children but sometimes the antics of a large group of small children are too much for her.  Older children, teenagers, etc are a better fit for her.

Xena likes having another dog companion as she finds security in his presence.   She likes calm environments and will do well in a home with an experienced owner.   Xena likes to be by your side, she sees her job as spending time with you.

Recently we introduced her to a cat.   We believe with proper supervision, she may be able to live with a cat.   She lived with a cat in her former home and did wonderfully.   Until her male doggy companion showed her how to chase the cat!

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 Our adoption donation is minimum $350.00 plus $25.00 for microchip for adult dogs and $450 plus $25.00 microchip for puppies 1 year and under. 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.
