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.



Am I not pretty to anyone? I had a bath and a flower in my fur to have my pictures taken. I felt that this was it, now I would certainly find a home! I know I’m not perfect, but I fought so hard to live when no one thought I was going to get through it. I do twitch a little, but it has been like that for two years, nothing changes. I won’t make anyone’s dog sick.  I dream of a forever home. I love my foster family but I want my own home, some place I know is mine forever. I am great with other dogs, I live with many of them. I am housebroken and very loving. I’m ready to be your best friend. I promise to love you forever! Paws crossed!

****** 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.

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.

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

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!
