5 month old Zuza is a Belgian Malinois puppy who has just arrived from a crowded shelter. She and her sister, Britta are currently in a GSROC foster home where they are being socialized with other animals and people. Britta is wearing the pink collar and Zuza is wearing the blue one.
Zuza sees herself as the leader of this little duo and Britta seems fine with following her lead.
Typical of the Belgian Malinois breed, Zuza is chock full of energy and curiosity. She likes to play, run and generally have a good time. She and her sister keep each other very busy.
This is a girl who will need a job to do in order to be happy. She is smart, likes to learn new things and please her people.
Please remember, adopting a puppy is not everyone’s cup of tea. As cute as they are – puppies demand a large investment of time, patience, and training. They are inquisitive, have endless energy and get into just about everything. They dig, chew, and seemingly never stop! Think long and hard about your lifestyle.
If you are not willing to invest the time and training to ensure your puppy matures into the wonderful dog – then please consider an older dog.
female If you would like to meet Zuza, please complete the online application and an adoption counselor will contact you.
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.
