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.



ADOPTION DAYS

We are open for adoptions as usual, but we want everyone to have done an on-line application. Pre-approved applicants only WHO ARE READY TO ADOPT NOW -
if the right dog/match is found.

If you aren’t ready to adopt, schedule a visit another time. If you have gotten the okay to foster, we welcome your help! In respect to our staff we won’t have any volunteer dog walkers right now to reduce exposure to them. When potential adopters arrive please wait in our sitting areas outside. We will be there to show you dogs who would work for your situation, considering, cats, little dogs, kids etc. We will get through these hard times together, the best we can! Thank you for still offering a worthy dog into your heart and home! Robin


****** 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.

Holly is a one and a half year old, large German Shepherd who is the sweetest, friendliest shepherd you will ever meet! She soaks up any and all affection and attention that comes her way. Although she lives with and plays with both big and small dogs, she is most content just following you around the house and will look for a cozy spot to hang out near you, preferably on the couch with her head on your lap! While she has been with her foster, she has learned to sit on command before getting treats or meals and to not beg at the table. This beautiful girl is house broken and uses a doggy door. If you have a pool, Holly will be so happy! One of her favorite pastimes is splashing on the first step of the pool. Holly has just discovered that playing with toys is so much fun. Being a big puppy, she would love lots of toys to chew on in her new home so your shoes will be safe! At first, she may be confused by her new surroundings so a gentle adopter who will show her love and patience as she adjusts is wanted! Once approved, her foster will contact you to meet this amazing girl. Please contact maria@smileytailsrescue.org for more info.

Nora is a beautiful 4 year old German Shepherd. She is a happy and friendly dog to people. She is a very sweet girl who is very well behaved but would do better in a home with no other animals, although she may be able to be introduced to other dogs with the right training. She is good with all humans, even kids, but due to her size and strength, we are suggesting older kids. She loves belly rubs, cuddles, and being silly. To adopt Nora, start by filling out an adoption application on our website littleangelsproject.org

Nolan is a shy sweet male Shepherd. He is small 45 pounds at best. About 1.5 years old. He gets along with all dogs large and small. He is quiet and I have rarely heard him bark. He would do best in a quiet household with one or two adults. For more info contact Bonnie at hiiibonbon@yahoo.com

Luna is an active, lovable 10-month old shepherd mix. She is medium-size, spayed, microchipped, has current vaccinations, hardly barks and is crate-trained. She is social and gets along with big or small dogs. She has these crazy expressive ears that go all over the place depending on what she hears. She loves to play period....with a frisbee a tennis ball, with the water hose or play chase. She likes to be connected, for example, Luna comes up and put her paws on your lap when you’re sitting or your shoulders as if to hug you. She will place one paw on your foot or will lay on it while you’re standing, whether you are talking to someone or just swashing the dishes...just anything to be connected. Luna is loyal and wants a family who will love her and play with her. If interested in Luna, please contact Celine at c_naytin@yahoo.com   There is a small re-homing fee. 


Hi, I'm Nanuk, I'm a gorgeous 2 years old Husky! My foster mom says I'm the all around perfect boy except for one thing: I have Mega-e so I have to have all my food and water sitting in my special chair.  I love to play with my fur siblings and I really love it when we get foster puppies so I can play with them.  I'm a very happy boy I love going for walks or just sitting on my foster mom's lap. I am housebroken, neutered and up to date with my shots.   If you want the perfect boy, and would like more info about me, please email my foster mom Susan at susanl7@hotmail.com

Maverick is a large and very handsome male German Shepherd, age 5.  His best friend is a female GSD with whom he gets along wonderfully. He has a medium energy level – he enjoys a balance between playing and taking naps.  He is easy to walk as he has perfect leash manners and is also house broken.  Maverick loves to play with toys, and with other doggie pals. He might be happy living with another canine best friend since he enjoys being around them. Being a typical GSD, he is independent yet, does enjoy cuddles from time to time. Maverick was rescued from a LA City Shelter and is currently living in a foster home.  He can resource guard his food/treats so he would do best in a home with no kids and with someone experienced with shepherds. This issue is very fixable with the right trainer and method. Maverick is neutered and his vaccinations are current.  There is a small re-homing fee.  Please contact Christina at christinalangosh@yahoo.com


Looking for a possible working dog? Or just an active partner? Dutchie is a gorgeous 1-2 year old Dutch shepherd mix. She is spayed, housebroken, is on the smaller side (40-45 pounds) and is good with cats. She will need an active home with someone who has experience with higher energy dogs. There is an doption for for her. For more info please email Jae at jaescissorhands@gmail.com

Gunner is a 3 year old mix of sweetness and love. He wants to please and is willing to learn new things. He would be a fiercely loyal companion and will appreciate daily exercise by taking long walks with family members. Gunner is house-trained with a doggie door and gets along with other dogs that are well socialized. Because a German Shepherd has a keen sense of smell, the game of "find" is a perfect activity for Gunner. He would also enjoy games such a fetch and Frisbee. He would be o.k. in a family with older children. He is neutered and up to date with shots. There is an adoption fee for Gunner. For more info, please contact Edgar at Kennel@living-free.org

Hi, I’m Scout, a classic-looking female GSD, weighing in at 80 lbs.  I’m 7, but don’t let my age fool you; I’m in great health and have LOTS of energy.  I really enjoy long walks in the park, and I will play ball…but you gotta give me a small cheese treat in order to get that ball back!  I have been provided lots of love and attention from my mom since I was a pup, but she now has health issues and can no longer take care of me.  I am housebroken and know my basic commands.  I am great with people and older children – but not little kids.   I need a home without cats or small dogs.  I was raised as an only dog, but I might be ok living with a medium-large submissive male dog.  I am spayed and my vaccines are current.  There is a small re-homing fee.  If interested, please contact Holly at 818.384.3687 or email: hmccravey@hotmail.com

My name is Lucy (2) and I’m a five year old shepherd who is looking for a loving family. I love people and playing with toys. Everyone likes walking me because I’m well behaved on a leash and pretty easy going. I love to roll around in the grass with my tongue flailing around! I’m not a big fan of little dogs or cats. Small fluffy things look like toys to me! While I would do best as the only dog in the home, I think I could make friends with another large male dog if I am introduced properly. I love my walks, but I also love exploring and chasing balls! Any exercise works for me! Please consider me when looking for your next loyal goofball! If you are familiar with shepherds, I’m sure you will fall in love with me in no time. I have not been with CARL long, but I have already made a ton of new friends! To fill out an adoption form please visit carldogs.org 

Meet Giselle!  Beautiful Giselle is a remarkable girl who had a badly injured/broken left front leg which couldn't be saved. Giselle gets along with other dogs and can even be playful.  She has been non-reactive around cats at our adoption events – and wants to chase foster kitty cats to play.  She is very smart so will listen to commands on expected behavior which she desires. Her maternal instincts drive her to pay close attention to her humans.  She loves to be loved.  Giselle is about 7-8 years old and on the smaller side, currently 50-lbs.  While her attentiveness is superb, her energy level is not demanding while in the home with her humans. Her ideal home will be with someone who is home more frequently and/or has other companion dogs.  Her perfect human will be experienced with smart determined breeds as she does not think of herself as a poor three legged dog.  No pity for this lovely and loyal companion. For more information please call: 714 914 7972.  She is being courtesy listed by this rescue and Giselle is offered through Home For Every Living Pet.

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 marlowe at harland40@gmail.com


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
