3 year old Xena has just arrived and we are getting to know her. Her former owner was injured and could no longer care for her. She turned to GSROC for assistance.
Xena comes from working lines and is happiest when she has a job to do. She is a young girl and sometimes forgets she is a big dog now. In her exuberance, little kids could get knocked over – for that reason, we recommend a home with older, school aged children.
Xena loves to be active – no couch potato activities for this girl. Jogging, hiking, chasing the ball – any or all of those things are right up her alley. She loves squeaky toys and enjoys the Kong toys – but only if there are treats hidden inside. Did we mention Xena is one smart cookie?
Car rides are lots of fun for Xena as she loves to travel.

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.
