I Like Kitties!UPDATED BIO!

GSROC got the call about an 8 month old puppy who was had been abandoned and was living on the streets. We fired up our rescue mobile and rushed to bring her to safety.

Bambi was so happy to see our volunteer, she hopped right into the back seat and gave a big doggy smile. She knew her future had suddenly gotten much brighter.

Bambi is her very own free spirit. She loves people and is filled with joy when she meets new folks. However, she has been running the streets for awhile, so she doesn’t understand that yards with fences are good things. If she sees something interesting, she just hops the fence to go check it out. Needless to say, this girl needs a secure yard with a high fence.

Leashes? Another thing Bambi is just learning about. She is eager to begin practicing her leash skills, but right now, she doesn’t understand why she can’t just run wherever she feels like going. We are working with Bambi to help her understand how to walk like a proper young lady.

Bambi is settling in at GSROC and looking forward to interviewing candidates for her new home, She has heard all about the importance of training from her new GSROC pals and can’t wait to get started. She is a very smart girl.

Please remember, puppies are cute for a reason. They are cuddly, sweet and also a lot of work. They dig, make messes in the house and require extensive time and patience. Think long and hard about adding a puppy to your household. You will be rewarded with a lifetime of love and devotion, but you will need to put in the time and training as well.

If you can’t provide the extensive time and commitment needed for this, then please consider an older dog.

Bambi has met the cat in her foster home and has made friends.  We believe, with the proper introduction, Bambi could live in a home with a cat.



UPDATE: Bambi is currently being treated for mange on her face.  We caught it early so we should be able to eradicate if quickly. Treatment is expensive, so any amount you can contribute towards her medical bills would be appreciated!

If you are interested in meeting her, please complete the online application.

If you would like to meet Bambi, 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 — $495.00 for purebred puppies, $395 for mixed puppies. (On a case by case basis, e.g. senior for senior, we will place a senior for $295.00 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.
