Westside German Shepherd Rescue of Los Angeles is a non profit 501(c)3, no kill rescue committed to saving
all types of German Shepherd Dogs from high kill shelters and adopting them to loving, qualified homes.



Over two years ago Misty fought for her life. Our hearts sunk when our vet confirmed she had distemper. The weeks went on and Misty continued to fight the dreaded disease. When we heard the distemper had gone into the neurological stage, we gave up hope at that point. We stopped asking for daily updates from the vet expecting the news would be that Misty passed away. Then we got the unbelievable news, Misty was ready to leave the hospital! There are so few dogs who survive once the disease progresses. Misty has an incredible will and an unbelievable immune system, plus we have vets who don’t give up until the dogs do! Our miracle dog has waited two years for a forever home. As much as her foster mom cares for her, it is time for her very own home! Misty twitches a bit but it doesn’t affect her quality of life at all. She lives with other big dogs and does fine with them. Misty is housebroken and used to being in a home. She is very affectionate with people and would love someone to watch over and a family of her own to love forever! Check out my video: HERE


****** NOTE: WE DO NOT HAVE PUPPIES AT OUR ADOPTIONS! ******
***** THEY ARE ALL IN FOSTER HOMES! *****

EVE'S stunning puppies are up for adoption now!


Don’t forget our lucky foster dogs; their foster parents make the transition to a new home so much easier. If you have lots of questions about how a dog will do in your home, whom better to ask than one of our dedicated fosters who know the dogs as part of their family. We are so grateful to our foster families. It is the ultimate gift to a dog without a family, instead of a cold kennel run, they wait for their new home in a loving home setting. Our foster families all have dogs of their own, this is their way of helping save more dogs. Of course it hurts to give up a foster dog, but the feeling of accomplishment, of helping save a life, transcends anything. Many of our foster families have been fostering dogs for almost a decade, they stay in touch with their adopters, it is an amazing bond.  Just let us know if you would like to talk to a foster parent about their dog or to become a Westside foster home.

COURTESY POSTINGS

Since Westside German Shepherd Rescue has not evaluated the Courtesy Dogs, we can offer no opinion regarding temperament, health or other salient issues. Since people sometimes forget to notify us, some of these dogs may already be adopted.

Hi everyone, I’m Buddy, a 7 yr old German Shepherd in need of a loving home ASAP. My owner died in November 😢  I have been living with my grandma who is very nice and loves me a lot, but she is 87 and I am just too much for her since I weigh 90lbs.  We also live with a little corgi mix who runs the show around our house. We get along great, but I am pretty protective around strange dogs, especially other males. I’m currently in training with a professional to help get me socialized around other dogs and I am making some progress!  But at this time, I think I need to be the only dog in the castle. Everyone tells me how handsome I am, and I thrive on the attention. I love sitting for treats and have learned to take them very gently.  My dog walker puts treats on my paws and I leave them alone until she tells me it’s ok to gobble ‘em up!   I wait, lay down and come on command.  Did I tell you I live for my walks? I have light to medium energy, am house trained and I LOVE my people HARD! I would love someone that will challenge me physically and mentally because I am very smart. I can’t stay with my grandma much longer so if you have interest in adopting me please call my dog walker as soon as possible. She is going to help me find you.  Ruff-ruff, I hope to meet YOU soon.  Regards and wet kisses, Buddy  Ps I am neutered and have current vaccinations.  There is a small re-homing fee for me.  If interested, please contact Claire at 805.441.2593 or via email at clairetownsley@gmail.com


Gustav is a most handsome,5 year-old mix of German Shepherd and Labrador.  This boy is sweet and loving with everyone – adults, kids and dogs alike.  Unlike many German Shepherds, Gustav is friendly with small dogs, and even cats! Not only happy and affectionate, Gustav is also smart; as such, he is house trained (of course!), very obedient, and really loves to work for yummy treats.   Gustav would do best with someone who is home most of the time or can make their new buddy a wingman!  He would like another doggy friend to keep him company when his person/family isn’t around; he needs someone who can work on building his confidence when the house is human-free. Gustav has been waiting patiently for his forever home, and he’s so looking forward to meeting his new family. Maybe that’s you! He is neutered, current on vaccines and microchipped.  There is a small re-homing fee.

Chloe is a wonderful 12 month old Shepherd mix. Her owners moved and left her behind so a good samaritan is keeping her safe until she can find a forever home. Chloe loves people and is sweet and genlte, loves face rubs and affection. She weighs around 45-50 pounds so she is not too big, not too little, perfect medium size. She used to live with her sister until the owners left; her sister is in a foster home but they couldn't take both dogs unfortunately. She is spayed and ready for her forever home. You really have to meet her to appreciate how sweet she really is.
Check out her video, she is a fast learner: VIDEO

Fiona  is a beautiful 2-3 year old Shepherd mix.
She is spayed, is up to date with shots and weighs about 80 lbs. She loves people and does great with male dogs, but females are not her style unless they are submissive. Fiona loves to go for walks so if you are looking for a walking or hiking buddy, she is your girl. For more info please send an email to  Vicky.S.Godoy@kp.org

Chachi is a wonderful 4-5 year old Chow Chow.
She didn't look her best when she was recued but now her gorgeous fur is growing back
(giving her a "fuzzy bear" look) and is such a loving sweet girl. For more info on Chachi please send an email to Vicky.S.Godoy@kp.org

Meet  Boomer, a beautiful 2 year old German Shepherd. He is just a puppy in a big dog's body so needs to learn some basic skills. He loves to play ball and fetch as well as take long walks. He is still perfecting his 'heel' skills. Boomer loves to go hiking, so if you need a buddy to go with, he is all game. He is also housebroken. He seems to have a prey drive so he would need to be tested with cats. As for dogs, he likes to be selective so maybe a very sweet and submissive female would be a good match if there is another dog in the family. Boomer is good with children but tends to forget his size and might knock over some smaller kids out of enthusiasm. There is an adoption fee. (he is neutered and up to date with shots) If you're interested in Boomer, please send an email to haltrescue@gmail.com

Hi everybody, my name is Steel!  I am about 75 pounds and 2 yrs old. My mom says I’m very handsome boy even though I am a giant ball of goofiness and cuddles.  I LOVE having my ball thrown and laying at the feet of my humans.   I am completely housebroken, don’t jump up on furniture (unless I’m invited) and I don’t chew, dig or jump fences.  As a GSD, I am extremely smart and I love to learn…and, boy do I learn fast! I get along great with my best friend who is a CAT, and I am fine with babies and little children. My mom is looking for a new home for me where I can get more mental stimulation, physical exercise and extra love.  My mom had my baby brother who I love and adore, but he has special needs and that takes a LOT of mom’s time in addition to her full-time job. I think with the right time and introductions, I can learn to play with, and trust, other dogs, but right now I am scared of them.  My future home should be doggie-free but I sure might like another kitty pal!  My new person/family needs to build up my confidence - I can get overwhelmed when meeting new people, including older children, so I would be best suited to a home without a lot of people coming and going.  I am a young, strong pup so I’m looking for someone with GSD experience that can teach me the self-assurance I need to become the very best version of myself. I’m already neutered, and all of my vaccines are up-to-date.   If you would like to meet me, please email  k.moore82511@gmail.com There is a small re-homing fee.  


Moose is an amazing 18 month old, 75 pounds of love! He is thought to be pointer/border collie/hound/lab mix. We don't know how he lost his family but he is such a fun dog to have around; loves to catch and retrieve balls and is currently boarding with a trainer. Moose is housebroken, crate trained, is good with other dogs and even CATS! He is neutered, up to date on vaccines and microchipped. He would love an active home, especially one with another playful dog. There is a small adoption fee for him; for more info please email obillieray@hotmail.com


“Gentle”and “loving” are the first words that comes to mind when thinking of Bruno!   This soulful 5-6 year old giant is friendly to everyone he meets, including small children.  Plus, he is great with other dogs; and, unlike many GSDs, Bruno gets along with small dogs!!   No kitties or chickens for Bruno, but he does like horses! Bruno is always up for an adventure so he willingly jumps into any vehicle!  He loves the outdoors - he is a beautiful sight to see running in wide-open spaces. Bruno has some obedience training; he knows “sit” and “down.”  He waits at the door to come in, and sleeps quietly in a crate.  Bruno is learning what indoors life is like; he is in the process of being house-trained and learning acceptable inside behavior.  He thinks having a canine buddy or two to show him the ropes will help him learn everything in a snap. Don’t pass Bruno up if you desire adog-friendly, polite andhandsome soul. He is waiting patiently to become your beloved family member. Bruno is neutered and has current vaccinations.  There is a small re-homing fee.  If interested in Bruno, please email info@sheprescue.org and tell them Bruno is your guy!
