What's better than getting a new best friend for Christmas?
(clockwise) RINGO, CUPCAKE, ZORRA and SKYLER would love to be your one and only!

2 handsome boys, Toby and Dax both had a good 1st CAT test!
They have been patiently waiting for a forever home and would LOVE to be with their new families for Christmas. Will you give them a chance?

Got new diet plans as a New Year's resolution?
Do you need an exercise buddy to do it with? Look no further, I am raising my paw! I have to admit I put on a few pounds sitting in the kennel waiting for my forever home, and sadly I don't get as many walks as I need and would like. The weight crept up on me and I feel it's time I gain back my girly figure. Check out my VIDEO HERE, maybe we can chase each other around for fun and go for long walks. What's better than the support of a friend during those hellish dieting months! Please come meet me,
I am Skyler!


****** 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.

Kiera is an adorable 15 month old smaller shepherd mix. She weighs about 25-30 pounds and has been in a home since she was a puppy.

or call her at

Norman is an adorable 5 year old shepherd mix. He lives with a boxer he gets along with great and is housebroken. He gets a little nervous around little kids so he would do best in a home without small children. No cats please. He is neutered and microchipped. There is a small adoption fee. For more info, please contact Carolyn at carolyn.smyth@yahoo.com

Django is a beautiful 7-8 year old German Shepherd. He was found running with a husky friend. He walks well on leash and does well with other dogs, although might prefer a cat free home. He seems to be housebroken and has been a very polite houseguest. For more info, please email: e.helen.robinson@gmail.com, and call Elizabeth at 213 220 5341

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

Babette 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

Aya is a beautiful 4 year old Shepherd mix girl. She is housebroken and fine with other dogs if introduced properly. Her owner takes her jogging so she would make a great running partner.

Teddy is a beautiful 2 year old Shepherd mix weighing in at 60 pounds. He is a playful and energetic dog that loves his people, although he may take some time to warm up to strangers. He is crate and leash trained, and loves to play ball. He is also neutered. He is an excellent candidate for an owner that is active or might want to take him to agility or nosework classes. Teddy has no experience with young children yet. See his video HERE. For more info, please contact Deborah at yoo.deborah@gmail.com or call 917-575-1458. Thereis a small adoption fee.

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)

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.

Solo is an adorable 12 month old shepherd mix. She is housebroken, knows how to use a doggy door, is mainly an inside dog but loves to be outside and play. She gets along great with other dogs but can be shy with men first. Once she spends a little time with them though, she warms up quickly. Solo would do best with another dog in the home and someone who is home a lot. She is spayed and up to date with shots. There is a small adoption fee. For more info, please email Jennifer: jpassailaigue@hotmail.com

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. Please go visit her and take her home, she will make an amazing companion!
1640 9th Street, Santa Monica, CA 90404....Phone: 310-458-8594
Shelter hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. every day, except Sundays: 12 noon to 5 p.m., and Wednesdays: 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.

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!
