****** 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.

Leia is a gorgeous 5 year old long haired German Shepherd. She was found in a bad part of town by some lovely people who are fostering her until she finds her forever home. She is housebroken, is a sweet and gentle girl although not too fond of cats and small dogs. If interested in this sweetie patootie, please email to info@sheprescue.org

This adorable cuddle bear is Panda, and he couldn’t be cuter if he tried!  Panda is very well tempered GS mix, approximately 6-7 years old.  He is wonderful with people and great with other dogs, even small ones!  Many GSDs think small dogs are prey but Panda considers them to be his buddies. Panda is housetrained, knows his basic commands and waits calmly for treats!  He walks well on leash; he might pull a bit when excited, but he responds to corrections.  Panda was rescued from a freeway ramp (!) and has blossomed in a home.  He is neutered and up to date on all his shots.  He is excited for his new life to begin and can’t wait to meet you!We are asking a rehoming fee for this awesome boy.  If you're interested in meeting Panda or have any questions, please email:  info@sheprescue.org

Shadow is a beautiful 8 year old shepherd mix, about 50 pounds. His owners are moving out of the country and sweet Shadow needs a new home. He is such a handsome guy, walks well on leash, is neutered, up to date with shots ad chipped. He plays well with other dogs after proper introduction. There is a small adoption fee. For more info, please email: info@sheprescue.org

Gypsy is a gorgeous 11 month old Shepherd mix. GOOFBALL. She comleted a six-week, live-in training program to learn domestic manners. She is doing great and is solid in her commands –– check out her training video link below. Gypsy is a sweetheart! She is crate trained and house broken. Gypsy is available and would do best with active humans who will maintain her training routines. Her adopter will receive two in-home training session to help transition her into a new life. She is spayed and up to date with shots. There is a small adoption fee. For more info, please email: info@sheprescue.org

Josie is a highly intelligent & stunning 5yr old female German Shepherd, approximately 70 pounds.  While heads turn at her beauty, it’s her classic GSD personality traits that make people fall in love with her – loyal, protective and loving. Josie is a typically active Shepherd who thrives when she has a job.  She sailed through obedience classes, and has completed a year of nose work training. She is at the point where she could be enrolled in competitive nose work trials.  Josie needs an active home that can keep her mentally and physically stimulated – she does searches at home to keep her mind busy, and loves hiking, walking and is a good running partner.  While Josie needs a home without small dogs or cats, she could possibly thrive with a larger, dominant male dog.  She would do best in either an adult-only home, or one with older children or teenagers as small children scare her. Josie needs a dominant pack leader to bring out the very best of her GSD traits. She can be leash reactive to other dogs but responds well when walked on a prong training collar.  While she was raised in a home with women, she also does very well with confident men.  Josie is spayed, current on her vaccinations and micro-chipped. There is a small rehoming fee. If interested in Josie, please email info@sheprescue.org


Meet Riley, a beautiful 7 year old male from the famous Yasko Vom Farbespiel bloodline! Don't let Riley’s age fool you - he is full of energy and needs someone with an active lifestyle. Riley gladly jumps into his crate in the bed of a truck, or in a car to go on any adventure. He loves hiking, bike rides, swimming or even just walks around the block. At home, he relaxes and as a traditional GSD, looks after the house with a watchful eye. Riley is a very playful and intelligent dog, always eager to learn new tricks. He is highly trained, verbally and visually, is housebroken and even rings a bell by the door when he needs to go outside. Riley’s commands include: sit, stay, down, heel, come, leave it, wait, jump & speak. For a good treat, he will hilariously play dead when you shoot him with your finger and say “pow.” With proper introductions, Riley can do well with larger dogs; however, his new home needs to be small dog & feline-free. On the other hand, Riley is good with free-range chickens (!) and horses. Riley needs an adult-only home; although he grew up with a child that he loves, the child startled him while asleep and Riley nipped his arm. Riley is crate trained and will sleep in his crate, but prefers his bed. He is neutered, microchipped and current on all his vaccinations. Riley’s packed bags include his crate, bed, toys and grooming tools. There is a small adoption fee for Riley; if interested in this magnificent dog, please email info@sheprescue.org

Bruno, age 3.5yrs, is handsome GS mix, weighing in at 75lbs.   Bruno is both loving and protective – in the home and on leash.  He does know some basic commands and will very much benefit from additional training.  While Bruno needs to be the only canine king of his castle, he is GOOD WITH CATS!!!  Bruno is mostly housetrained. He would do best in a home without a lot of traffic due to his protective nature. Consistent training and exercise will help Bruno become the best dog he can be. Bruno is neutered, micro-chipped and up-to-date on his vaccinations. If interested in him, please email to info@sheprescue.org.  There is a Re-Homing Fee: $100.

Dexter is a gorgeous 2.5 year old German Shepherd. His owners had to move from a house to a small apartment and feel Dexter would be happier in a home with a yard and owners who don't travel as much as they do. Dexter does well with larger dogs, not so much with small dogs or cats. He is housebropken, neutered and comes with papers from the breeder he came from. For more info please fill out an application HERE and Dexter's owners will get back to you shortly.

Emma is a three year old Belgian Tervuren Shepherd. She was rescued from a high kill shelter in New Mexico As far as we have been able to determine, she is a purebred Tervuren. (or a long haired shepherd) Emma needs an experienced owner that will share an active lifestyle with her because she is a higher energy dog. She is housebroken and has been trained to ring a bell whenever she wants to go outside. She loves to sit on your lap and cuddle. She is spayed and up to date on shots. Emma can be picky with the dogs she likes even though she has been living with several othr dogs. There is a small adoption fee. For more info, please call
