Zella got her name because she likes to keep things orderly and peaceful. She is friendly, happy and busy learning her puppy social skills.
She and her sisters were dumped at a nearby high kill shelter along with their mother. Why does this happen? Unfortunately, we don’t know. What we DO know is that this little family deserved better, so we quickly moved them into the GSROC lifeboat.
We have promised this little family to find families who will love and cherish them. They have all been vaccinated, dewormed and will be microchipped prior to adoption.
Please remember, while puppies are very cute and endearing, they need training and love to become wonderful adults. They are cute and cuddly but also full of energy. It is a life long commitment and one that needs to be carefully thought out.

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.
