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.




****** 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.

SADIE is a wonderful 4 1/2 year old Shepherd mix. She is house trained, good indoors, does not dig or chew, and is used to sleeping in her dog bed in the bedroom She has been fine when crated in the past. She is calm in the house, just following around her human. She loves to hike, play, and run… and she loves ice cream! She has a prey drive, so probably no cats for her. She would do best in a home where she can be with her human much of the time. She loves daily walks and playing in the backyard. Sadie is very smart, learns commands quickly, and wants to be at your side… or be your hiking partner! Sadie is losing her home, and needs a new home or foster urgently!!! For more info please contact:  Maripat@AllForLoveAnimalRescue.org; (805) 405-6333

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.

Meet sweet Maya!   This pretty girl, approximately 4.5 yrs old, 55-60 lbs, was found running around as a stray in the desert!  As such, she is very shy but is improving in her rescuer’s home.  Maya would do best with an easy-going doggie companion to help her come all the way out of her shell.  She currently lives with a male mixed breed, and senior female pit bull mix and gets along well with both dogs. Maya likes toys and dragging her blanket outside, and she very much appreciates a kiddie pool when it’s hot outside so she can cool her paws!  Maya likes to ride in the car and enjoys it more when her buddy Oscar rides along.  Maya is crate trained and behaves very well at the vet. In order to build her confidence, Maya would do best in a quiet, low-key home (without small children) with a confident & laid-back dog who can help her become the best version of herself.  If there is a yard, it needs to be secure so she cannot escape if she gets frightened - she is petrified of fireworks and needs to be inside while they occur. Maya is spayed but she is now due for vaccinations.  Please email Evelyn at  desertsky1984@yahoo.com and put subject heading of “Maya.”  There is a small re-homing fee.


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


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


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 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


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
