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.

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.

These 2 adorable girls, Maya (shepherd) Sparky (small mix) are looking for a home together - or separate. 5-6 years old and sweet as they come! For more info please email: info@sheprescue.org

I am a three year old spayed female German Shepherd and current on all my vaccinations. I was rescued from an L.A. shelter by the Puppy Coalition Foundation of Escondido. I had been found (a stray). As German Shepherds go, I am "small" (about 60 pounds) and they say I will not get bigger. I am very affectionate with my humans but I should be the only animal in the home. I am very well house-trained. I will surprise you with kisses when you are least expecting it. As well I am one of the most beautiful classic shepherds you will ever see. I will be your best, most fun buddy ever and provide great companionship. I am 3 but still have lots of energy to play with kids and anyone who can throw a ball. There is an adoption fee to cover vaccinations and spay cost.

If interested in this sweet and lively young shepherd, the best direct contact is Bruce at 760-612-9156. Call anytime


Hello, my name is Jasper. I am a neutered, chow-lab mix, about 7-8 years old. I get along well with other dogs if we are introduced correctly. (currently I live with a male shepherd and we get along great) I'm not a big fan of cats. I am very affectionate with humans and take treats gently. I show no signs of aggression. I like to keep in shape so I would appreciate regular walks. I would do well with an owner who is home the majority of the time, as I am a people lover and appreciate lots of human interaction. Please contact Mallory at malloryg85@gmail.com for more info about me. There is a small adoption fee. (I am also up to date on shots)

WOOF! MEET SANDY! Sandy is a beautiful 3-year-old German Shepherd girl. She is a loving, people friendly girl and has shown no aggression to other dogs. She had no negative behavior notes at the shelter but was simply out of time. Sandy is spayed, up-to-date on shots and ready for her forever home. There is a small adoption fee for this gorgeous girl.

Please email Cheryl for more info:

Hi! I'm Dash. I'm a 5-6 year old German Shepherd Mix. I love to drink out of the hose and play in a kiddie pool. I like my toys and my treats, and I'm big on cuddling. I would love to find myself a human that is home most of the time, looking for a dog who will watch out for them and be their best friend. I need a home without cats and other dogs and an experienced owner. I might do okay with a easy going female dog. I know my basic commands, and I walk nicely on a leash, responding to corrections. I love people, but I'm too big for kids and they don't understand how to play with me. My mom loves me, but she has to find me a new home because she is sick. I come with my collar, a leash, my crate and some food. I promise to love you forever and take care of you, if you take care of me. My mom is asking for an adoption fee to ensure that I go to a good home, and a home check will be required. She would like to visit me and get updates on me occasionally, and she really loves me, which is why she knows she can't take care of me anymore. I am neutered, up to date on shots. I come with a 5 month supply of sentinel as well for those pesky fleas, ticks and worms! Can you be my new family? Look at this sweet face and give me a chance! Any questions, just ask mom! Love, Dash

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.

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
