ADOPTION DAYS

******* Pre-approved applicants only *******

(no homes with cats or small dogs at this time)

Although our adoption hours remain the same, due to the COVID-19 situation, we are only showing dogs to PRE-APPROVED applicants. If you have submitted an on-line application but have not been approved by our volunteer, please do NOT come down to meet dogs as we won't be able to show you any. Our main priority right now is to keep our staff, volunteers and you healthy during these difficult times. No on-site screening at this time. Once approved and told to come meet dogs, we will be happy to help you. Thank you for understanding and for opening your homes to one of our deserving dogs!


It is time to say goody-bye!
Red thanks his foster mom for all she has done for him, but now his foster parents are moving! Red feels very much loved and the last thing they want for him is to go back to a kennel, even a nice kennel. He is so ready for the next chapter of his life and his forever home! Red enjoys hiking and hanging out with the other dogs in the family.  He has very good manners, he is still a strong dog and one used to some fun, so he needs active people. He is a party boy when introduced to new people; but his backyard is his domain, so no strangers back there please! Red comes often to adoption events, we will let his foster parents know and they can meet you at the rescue!

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.

Adorable Ava is the perfect blend of Akita and German Shepherd! This young adult female currently weighs about 70 lbs. Her hobbies include going on walks, running and playing, eating treats and getting her hair done. She is selective about her canine companions and definitely prefers them to be larger boy dogs. She can be a little shy with new people at first, especially men. If you have room for Ava to run, activities to keep her intelligent mind busy, or need a walking/running buddy, Ava may be just the girl for you! For more info email jody.angarola@gmail.com

Bella is a beautiful 5 year old German Sheopherd. She has a big smile and a big personality matched only by her sweetness.  She loves people, fetch and food and is looking for a new Fur-Ever home with someone who can appreciate her bold yet sensitive and loving nature. She bonds strongly with her people and wants to be near and with them. She likes a cuddle and a pet and is not flummoxed by strangers one little bit. She is energetic and agile, loves to play fetch and could spend all day doing it. Bella is a large dog, and although she has good obedience skills, she can be pushy and occasionally anxious, so small children are probably not a great fit for her. She is a sensitive sweetheart and can be especially interested and stimulated by sounds and her environment. She can be vocal in expressing herself sometimes, but she is usually just trying to tell you something. She can also be quiet as a mouse, comfy in her crate or on her bed. Sometimes Bella is a little socially immature, even awkward in the canine world, so we would recommend that she be the single dog in the household. If German Shepherds are your fancy, you will fancy Bella.  She is a radiant and stellar example of why we love GSDs. She is looking for a best friend who can continue to guide her to her best most beautiful self. She is spayed, up to date on shot; there is an adoption fee for her adoption. For more info, please contact Krista at KristaE@searchdogfoundation.org

 Ellie is a 2 year old German Shep/Pyranees mix, female/spayed, house trained, all shots, beginning crate training, learning basic skills like sit, etc. She loves people and is very affectionate. She likes to go on walks but also can be a couch potato! Her ideal situation is a house with a yard and tall fencing (she's a big girl). She's probably best as an only dog. She's a velcro dog- loves to be with her people. She LOVES people. She will be a good protector- barks when she hears things, etc. There is an adoption fee for Ellie. For more info please email Margi at margicheske@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 

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
