"WHO'S THE CUTEST OF THEM ALL"?
11 week old Shepherd MIX puppies Fonzy (left) and Flossie (right) are looking for forever homes.
(They do not have to be adopted together)

****** 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.

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 MUST HAVE an experienced owner that will share an active lifestyle with her because she is a high 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
Robert at (559) 679-6783

Genesis is a gorgeous 6 year old AKC German Shepherd. Unfortunately because of health issues in the family they can no longer keep her. She is spayed, up to date on shots. Per the owners: She loves to be loved! Be confident and she'll be submissive. She might seem intimidating but she's all love inside. Her line comes from a great background and we do have AKC Papers for her. When you give her treats she'll take it out of your hand gently. She would do best as an only dog. For more info, please contact Evangeline at evalways66@outlook.com

Maggie is a delightful 2 year old Bull Terrier. She thinks she is a lap dog and adores people. She would probably do best and an only dog or maybe with a submissive male. For more information, please contact Eran at 310-801-0655

Gunner is a delightful 2-3 year old Blue Heeler Australian Cattle Dog. He is a sweet, housebroken 58 pound furball. He has been neutered, is up to date with shots and is microchipped. Gunner is not a big fan of cats so a kitty free home is best.
Gunner lives with 3 other dogs but needs to learn to have better doggie manners while walking on leash as he alerts to other dogs.
He is true to his breed and is a protective dog with lots of fun energy.

(she is 5 yrs oldnow) She is spayed, has all her shots and she is healthy and happy. She is an absolute love bug with people and kids. The only negative is she does not do well with small dogs or cats. For more info call Betsy at 707-479-5639 and lets get her home.

Juno is an adorably beautiful 2 year old Shepherd mix girl. She is great with other dog; she would definitely do better in a home with another dog.

Norman is an adorable 5 year old shepherd mix. He lives with a boxer he gets along with great and is housebroken.

Coco is a 3.5yo and approximately 60lb Chocolate Lab/Red Doberman mix. She has been boarding and training at a highly-regarded dog training school. There, Coco has learned how to walk properly on a leash and some other good manners, and the trainer is even willing to go to Coco’s future new home to provide the proper tools to her new parents. She is sweet and loyal to those she knows, but she can be timid with strangers. Just ask her to sit or lay down, and she’ll comply with your wishes. Remember.Playing fetch with a ball and snuggling are two of her favorite activities, and she gets along well with other large, male dogs. She is definitely an Alpha female and it is highly recommended that she be the only female of the household!. Due to her strength, she would do best with a family who has older children and one that will continue her training. She is goofy and quite playful.Feel like taking her on a car ride? She’d love to go with you and promises not to be a backseat driver (although she can’t promise that she won’t drool a tiny bit). There is a small adoption fee. Please contact Jan at jlwiner@sbcglobal.net

Rocky is a beautiful 10 year old German Shepherd weighing in at 80 pounds. He is a very sweet guy who prefers female dogs as his canine buddies. He is in a foster home and is housebroken.

Giselle is a very pretty 8 month female/spayed Carolina Dog x. This breed are also known as Pariah (American Dingo). Giselle has a lovely reddish strawberry blonde coat, she weighs 37 lbs and growing, is slender with long legs, has lovely amber colored eyes. She has a very sweet personality, loves other dogs, people, children. Probably best not with cats, as this breed has a high prey drive. This breed are pack animals, so need to be around people, and other dogs. She will need a lot of exercise, long daily walk, hiking. She is super affectionate, will still need some puppy training, but smart and will catch on. She is presently in a class, she had one already, this is more for socialization at Petsmart, she loves it there. She is up to date with her current shots, and microchipped. If you think you can give her the right home, please contact, dogsonearth@yahoo.com, 310 774 0055 landline. Watch her video HERE

This is Birdie, a 6 month old Lab/Shepherd (?) mix. Birdie has been adopted once, but unfortunately her new owner had medical issues and had to bring Birdie back to her foster family. Birdie is a LOVING girl, and has already been SPAYED, MICROCHIPPED, and has all of her shots. She loves women but is somewhat shy around men. Not aggressive, just wary. She has been in a foster home with 8 other large dogs, both male and female, and gets along with them all. She loves to run and play outside, and likes to chill inside her kennel. Birdie is kennel trained, and has not had any accidents inside the house, but we can't claim she's completely housebroken.
Please call Robert at 559-679-6783 for more info.

BEAR is super-sweet(!!!) but a big goof-ball who hasn't learned all his manners yet! He needs a foster or better A HOME with yard access and no cats or small dogs or small children as he is very goofy and not aware of his size or strength! Bear LOVES to visit HOME DEPOT and he is friendly with everyone he meets!! Please contact me, to help Bear! (we are not looking to send him out of Southern Cali) Ingrid 310 480 6030 ... pajade@yahoo.de (not .com)


Know what Shepherd means? Well meet Rocky - a 4 year old gorgeous German Shepherd with a heart of gold. He is a spectacular ranch dog that will make sure all the horses get turned out and sweaty. Rocky loves people. He is a large 95 pound neutered playful boy who loves his female dogs big or small, but wants to challenge other big boys. He likes to chase cats to rabbits as Rocky loves his games. He is a true loyal companion, and loves attention and cuddle time. Small children not suggested only because he never realizes how hig he is!
For more information contact genesisericson@gmail.com - Rocky is currently living on a ranch in San Bernardino County. This is private party placement, although a tax deductible donation to: Westside German Shepherd Rescue will be requested to assure it’s a serious home.

Sassy is a delightful 7 year old German Shepherd looking for her forever family. She is spayed and is up to date with all her shots. She absolutely adores people, but would prefer to be the only dog in the family. She is located at the Somona Humane Society in Northern CA and has become such a favorite with the staff and volunteers, they even created a Facebook page just for her. You can visit her FaceBook page HERE. Please call the SHS at 707 542-0882 if you would like to know more about this sweet girl.

Foxy is a wonderful 12 month old shepherd mix girl. She has all of her shots and has been fixed. She will sit and lay on command and she is a great frisbee dog. She can catch a frisbee in the air and return it to you. She is approximately 70 pounds. She is currently at the Santa Monica shelter.

Duke is a spectacular, brilliant, four year old pure German Shepherd. Duke talks to you with pure adoration and affection. He is very healthy, happy and loving. He knows his commands. Duke knows ‘sit’ and ‘down’. Once he has smelled all the smells, he heels perfectly on his leash. Duke is extremely loyal and bonds very tightly to his humans. He tends to be very protective of those he loves. Duke wants a quiet, peaceful environment in a stable ‘adults only’ home. No cats or small dogs. While Duke would prefer to be your “one and only” he may accept a docile, submissive large female companion, with proper training.  Duke loves to play with balls and Kongs and is up for a belly rub 24/7. Duke is a great dog, beautiful inside and out. Email: gloriawaco@yahoo.com There is an adoption fee for Duke.


Max is a wonderful and distinguished older gentleman of 8 years. He looks to be a shepherd/jindo mix, best guess. Max is a gentle 65 pound love bug, who loves human attention.  He is curious and wags his tail around other dogs. He does not require heavy exercise and loves to go on short walks. Max likes to explore the great outdoors to see what's going on in the world. He would be great in a calm environment where he can be walked and receive human affection. He likes to get his ears and tummy rubbed. He does well with most dogs, but probably not that great with cats. Since he's an older doggie who enjoys a calm environment, a home with older (as opposed to very active smal) kids is preferred. Please send an email to info@sheprescue.org if you're interested in meeting this handsome boy!
