Looking for a shepherd but in a more compact size?
That's me, Autumn, I'm a smaller sized Shepherd mix. I don't understand why but I seem to get overlooked on the website so I asked the volunteers if I could be featured on this page to get noticed. I'm quite the love bug and my tail never seems to stop wagging when I'm around people. I will sit in your lap, on your shoulder, next to you .. whatever you like as long as I'm close to you. I'm not looking my best quite yet, but if you saw me when I first came in, you'd be amazed at my transformation. (I'll show you "before" pictures if you come meet me!)
I prefer humans to other dogs so I will be just fine as an only dog if that's what you're looking for! Please give me a chance and come see me, I would love to demonstrate my tail wagging skills to you!

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


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.

Moose is an amazing 2yr old, 75 pounds of love! He is thought to be a german shepherd/coon hound 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, excellent at agility 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 experienced home, that can provide plenty of exercise and structure. Moose has recently done some training on how to meet visitors that come to the home and will come with free training sessions to help his new family continue this, especially while he is adjusting. There is a small adoption fee for him; for more info please email obillieray@hotmail.com


Hi everyone, I’m Louie, a very handsome 4 yr. old purebred GSD with a lot of love to give.  I simply adore all my human friends and it would be my pleasure to sit beside you forever!  I’m wonderful with people & kids, and my human sibling is a 1yr old baby boy.  While I love a good run, I also like long walks.  But just as much, I enjoy sitting and cuddling with my people: I am quite chill, mellow and a pure delight in the safety of my own home. I am an indoor dog who is housebroken and trained; plus, I walk well on leash.  I am the definition of a “Man’s Best Friend” with a heart of gold soul for the cherry on top.  I am looking for a new home because my mum has a lot on her plate with work plus the baby, while Dad is out of town on a long-term work assignment. I am looking for a person or family that can help me re-gain confidence with other dogs; you see, I got attacked at age 2, and I still have some leftover fear.  I will do best with someone I can trust to protect me & make me feel safe again.  I need time and security to get over my fears, so I can once again mix and mingle with my fellow canine pals.  I actually do live with another large dog with whom I get along splendidly so I know the right person who can provide me with confidence and help me to learn again how to socialize with other dogs, I will be the best GSD ever. I am neutered, have current vaccinations and am microchipped.  My re-homing fee is $150. which will be donated in its entirety to Westside GS Rescue!

MEET BEAUTIFUL GYPSY!!
Meet gorgeous GYPSY! She is a stunning 2 year old, 45 lbs Shepherd/Cattle Dog/? mix with an exuberant spirit! Gypsy has been through a live-in training program and continues to board with her trainer. Her training routines help her to focus, settle and transition; She is highly intelligent and is looking for an active owner who will keep her active and busy. Need a Jogging partner? Gypsy is your girl. Need an active beach buddy? Gypsy is your girl. Need a roller skating buddy? Gypsy is your girl! She loves adventures in nature and swimming.  She would also do best with a yard and with another confident, high energy, playful pup. Her adoption comes with 4 mandatory training sessions at her trainer’s facility to help transfer her training. Our goal is for Gypsy to have a successful adoption that is forever!

Chloe is a beautiful 15 month old Shepherd mix weighing in just under 50 pounds. Chloe is a darling girl, super affectionate and she loves belly rubs from her humans. Her last owners didn't spend much time with her, so she is now learning how to walk well on leash and how to be polite when other dogs are walking by. She takes her duties as "family protector" seriously, and will make sure her humans are safe. Because of her more protective nature, she will need an experienced owner who is able to show her when her help is needed and when she can relax. Because she is protective, a home without kids is best so she doesn't feel she needs to protect her "kids" from visiting friends. She can be picky with the dogs she likes so maybe an easygoing male would be ok if her new home has another dog. She is now enrolled in a 'live-in' training program, and her adoption comes with 4 training sessions to ensure a successful adoption. Please give Chloe a chance, she will make an excellent addition to the right family, ideally away from the crazy busy world of city life. She is spayed and up to date with shots. For more info, please email: geckotale@icloud.com

Ghost is a beautiful six year old German Shepard. He is very playful, he loves to chase balls and bones. He is extremely fast and has never been beaten by another dog in a sprint to a ball. He has never had problems with other dogs, but older dogs sometimes find his energy level a bit annoying. Ghost is extremely friendly on walks and never growls at people or animals. He absolutely loves to give hugs and will wrap his front paws around you if you allow, he sometimes he needs to be nudged back. He is housebroken and will not eat unattended food on the table. For more information please email info@sheprescue.org


Adorable Brother (Baron) and sister (Nala) are 5 year old German Shepherd/Border Collie mix siblings. Because of moving, their family is looking to find them a new home - together would be ideal as they are attached to each other. They are wonderful with people, great with other dogs (they are dog park pros), housebroken and just a wonderful pair of dogs. They are also spayed/neutered and up to date on shots. There is small adoption fee. For more info please email to: info@sheprescue.org

Miss Mia Moo had spent several months in the shelter hoping to find a home to call her own.  We don't understand how she was overlooked as it was love from the first "Hello". We knew we could not add another to our family but made a promise to her that we would find her the loving family she so deserved.  With help of friends we were able to pull Mia from the shelter.  She deserves a forever family and as she stole our heart, we know she will steal yours. She is a 6-7 year old Shepherd mix, housebroken, wonderful on the leash, spayed and just needs a home to call her own. This little lady would like to be the only dog in the home as she likes to have all the attention on her so she can enjoy her belly rubs and human cuddles all to herself. She just loves humans and would love one to call her very own. Could you be Mia’s future forever family? If you would like to open your heart and home to her, please email us at conversationswithcanines@gmail.com for more information.

Meet beautiful Camellia!  She is a sweet pup who is looking for a forever home! She is approximately 6 years old and weighs 42 pounds. Camellia would love nothing more than a human friend to give her cuddles, play fetch, and go on walks with her. She has the playfulness of a young pup, but the behavior of an adult dog.  She is the whole package! She is happy, sweet, calm, gentle, and loving. She will snuggle up to any human that will sit next to her on the couch. She is playful and energetic yet well-behaved, attentive, and obedient. She loves to go on walks and walks nicely on a leash. Her favorite game is fetch. She is house trained and does well alone while her foster mom is at work during the day. She is spayed, up-to-date on shots and chipped. There is a $50 re-homing fee.  If interested in Camellia, please email: info@sheprescue.org


Meet Onyx, a year old, female Shepherd mix.  This smaller sized beauty loves to exercise!   She would be perfect for an active family that likes running, hiking and other outdoor activities. Onyx is very spirited and barks when she’s excited.  She does well with other dogs although her playfulness is too much for small dogs and for small children. She would do best in a home with another medium-large dog, and older children.  She gets along with some cats but does not do well with feathered friends. Onyx is young and does best when she is kept busy.  She is a fast learner and enjoys practicing new tricks, including commands.  She can heel on-leash, knows sit, and has almost mastered stay. She is both house-trained and crate trained. She is comfortable sleeping in her crate during the night and throughout the day if needed at times. Onyx is spayed, microchipped, and up to date on her vaccines.  There is a small re-homing fee. Let me know if you think you can give Onyx her forever home! Contact Selena for more info:  626 376 6955  Grapefruit1014@yahoo.com


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.

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
