ADOPTION DAYS

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

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. If you're just "shopping around", please apply at a later time. Thank you for understanding and for opening your homes to one of our deserving dogs!

Please sign in when you arrive. A counselor will work with you outside and bring dogs outside for you to meet. Everyone is wearing masks and staying a safe distance.


****** NOTE: WE DO NOT HAVE PUPPIES AT OUR ADOPTIONS! ******
***** THEY ARE ALL IN FOSTER HOMES! *****

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

Luther is a gorgeous 4 year old German Shepherd currently at the San Luis Obispo County Animal Shelter. He loves to play with toys and carry them around during his walks. He adores his humans, so if you're looking for a snuggle buddy, he is the one for you. As much as Luther loves his people, he is not a big fan of other dogs and would like to be your one and only "furry child" in the house. He didn't have a very loyal owner before, so he deserves the best forever family who will appreciate the loyalty and fun a Shepherd can provide.
See a couple of quick videos of this hunky boy: VIDEO and VIDEO
For more information, you can email his friend Angel at gramangel55@gmail.com or contact the SLOCCA ph# 805-781-4400 and reference Luther's animal ID# A262740.


This handsome guy is Nino, a 4-5 year old German Shepherd. He is full of love. He wants to cuddle, nuzzle, and get belly rubs from every person he meets. He’s just waiting to meet that special someone to dedicate himself to completely. He loves to play tug-of-war with rope toys, shake his squeak-and-crinkle toy, and chew bones. He also has enjoyed play-wrestling with his husky sister while being fostered. He is neutered, house trained, and knows how to sit, shake paw, and lie down. He listens and learns quickly. Because he had a rough start to life, much of the world outside the house is new and scary to him. Car rides, walks, and hearing other dogs outside of the yard can overstimulate him. He also has a strong prey drive, and so should not be in a household with small animals, including cats or small dogs. He will be the world’s best dog with the loving care of a person or people experienced with large breed rescue dogs and wanting a giant sweetie of a lap dog. There is an adoption fee for Nino. If you are interested in adopting Nino, please submit inquiries to Ed at 4 Paws Kiddo Rescue: Edmalexa@aol.com

GOOFBALL LOOKING FOR HOME!!!
"Hi everyone! This is Karma, I am a 6 year old Shepherd mix. Before you go any further, please watch my VIDEO HERE.
I am quite the goofball, and thought you should see me in "action" instead of just going by my pictures alone. I have been waiting for months at the San Gabriel Valley Humane Society to be adopted but nobody seems to want me. They all go for the young ones, and although I am happy to see them go home, I am always hopeful that the next human will stop by my kennel and give me a chance. I am already spayed, microchipped and vaccinated. They call me a "love bug", not sure what that means but hope it's something good. Will you come meet me? I will guaranteed put a smile on your face. For more info about me, please contact my friends Juliana at juliana@animalwellnessfoundation.org or Roxana at roxana.sgvhsvolunteer@gmail.com.
Thank you, your friend, Karma."

We are told the staff at the HS loves Karma and says she is a great dog and loves any person she meets! They say she is very loyal, smart, playful, loving and walks well on a leash. She has a couple of medical issues Juliana and Roxana can explain.
Looking for the Mother Teresa of the dog world, is that you?


Hailey is a gorgeous 6 year old German Shepherd. Unfortunately she is looking for a new home as her family needs to downsize at this time. Hailey is wonderful with people, is housebroken and does well with other dogs after proper introductions. Per her mom: " She is a gentle, healthy and wonderful dog. She is completely potty trained and has great recall. She is very smart and loves to love. When she has her usual exercise (pre pandemic) she is great on a leash and just likes to lounge and be loved." She is spayed and up to date on shots. There is a small rehoming fee for Hailey. For more info, please contact Lisa at sixtwoeighttwoasil@gmail.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

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
