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! *****

SEQUOIA'S PUPPIES ARE READY FOR ADOPTION NOW!
After years of rescuing pregnant Shepherd 'moms to be', and never knowing who daddy is, we are never surprised anymore when the puppies look nothing like German Shepherds. (even we wouldn't have believed it at times if the pups weren't born in front of us) We are guessing that dad might have been a mix of maybe Lab and Mastiff. (our best guess)
See more pictures HERE
Santa Barbara, Pepperdine and Amherst are females. The rest of the pups are males.

Bailey's adorable puppies are now ready to meet their new families!
Mom is a Shepherd mix, pups are Shepherd mixed with possibly hound, maybe retriever .. our best guess.
Females: Eclair, Cupcake, Sprinkles. Cobbler is a male.
ONLY 4 PUPS LEFT!!!


LOOKING FOR A SWEET LOVEBUG?
Come meet Zoey, our resident smiley face!

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.

Chloe is a wonderful 12 month old Shepherd mix. Her owners moved and left her behind so a good samaritan is keeping her safe until she can find a forever home. Chloe loves people and is sweet and genlte, loves face rubs and affection. She weighs around 45-50 pounds so she is not too big, not too little, perfect medium size. She used to live with her sister until the owners left; her sister is in a foster home but they couldn't take both dogs unfortunately. She is spayed and ready for her forever home. You really have to meet her to appreciate how sweet she really is.
Check out her video, she is a fast learner: VIDEO
For more info please send an email to info@sheprescue.org 

Fiona  is a beautiful 2-3 year old Shepherd mix.
She is spayed, is up to date with shots and weighs about 80 lbs. She loves people and does great with male dogs, but females are not her style unless they are submissive. Fiona loves to go for walks so if you are looking for a walking or hiking buddy, she is your girl. For more info please send an email to info@sheprescue.org 

Chachi is a wonderful 4-5 year old Chow Chow.
She didn't look her best when she was recued but now her gorgeous fur is growing back
(giving her a "fuzzy bear" look) and is such a loving sweet girl. For more info on Chachi please send an email to info@sheprescue.org

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 info@sheprescue.org

Looking for an amazing mature boy who loves kids?

Ace is a sweet and smart “people pleaser”.  He loves EVERYONE and is great with kids.  Ace is also good with other dogs. He knows the basic commands of sit, stay, lay down, come. He takes treats ever so gently and he is capable of learning lots more. He loves being around people but is not overly “needy”. Ace is 7-8 years old and 90 lbs, neutered and up to date with shots. He was just at the vet and he checked out great. 
Don't let his age deter you from adopting this amazing dog! Older dogs are such amazing and easy company! For more info please email info@sheprescue.org


Meet Jax, a stunning 5-year-old male German Shepherd in search of a new home.   Don’t let his age fool you: Jax has plenty of energy!  In fact, he needs his daily exercise in order to be his loving, relaxed and easy-going self.  Jax loves to play, chew bones and be brushed - and unlike many GSDs, doesn’t mind taking a bath! Jax is a classic GSD in many ways: looks, intelligence, easy to train (food-motivated) and will be someone’s shadow. He is people-friendly, but in typical GSD fashion, it will take a bit before his love for you shines through.  He does like to be petted, but cuddling isn’t his thing.  He is housebroken and he neither digs nor chews.  He would do best with a GSD-savvy owner who either works from home or could take him to work. Jax’s new home needs to be feline-free, and it’s not clear how he feels about small dogs.  But he loves other large dogs and going to the dog park! He would be best suited to a home with a playful and submissive dog as Jax needs to be the boss.  He can be placed in a home with older children who understand how to respect a GSD’s personal space.  He is neutered and microchipped; his rabies vaccination is current & he is registered with Ventura County. There is an adoption fee for Jax. Please email info@sheprescue.org if you're interested in Jax.


Hi everybody, my name is Steel!  I am about 75 pounds and 2 yrs old. My mom says I’m very handsome boy even though I am a giant ball of goofiness and cuddles.  I LOVE having my ball thrown and laying at the feet of my humans.   I am completely housebroken, don’t jump up on furniture (unless I’m invited) and I don’t chew, dig or jump fences.  As a GSD, I am extremely smart and I love to learn…and, boy do I learn fast! I get along great with my best friend who is a CAT, and I am fine with babies and little children. My mom is looking for a new home for me where I can get more mental stimulation, physical exercise and extra love.  My mom had my baby brother who I love and adore, but he has special needs and that takes a LOT of mom’s time in addition to her full-time job. I think with the right time and introductions, I can learn to play with, and trust, other dogs, but right now I am scared of them.  My future home should be doggie-free but I sure might like another kitty pal!  My new person/family needs to build up my confidence - I can get overwhelmed when meeting new people, including older children, so I would be best suited to a home without a lot of people coming and going.  I am a young, strong pup so I’m looking for someone with GSD experience that can teach me the self-assurance I need to become the very best version of myself. I’m already neutered, and all of my vaccines are up-to-date.   If you would like to meet me, please email info@sheprescue.org  There is a small re-homing fee.  


Moose is an amazing 18 month old, 75 pounds of love! He is thought to be pointer/border collie/hound/lab mix. We don't know how he lost his family but he is such a fun dog to have around; loves to catch and retrieve balls and is currently boarding with a trainer. Moose is housebroken, crate trained, is good with other dogs and even CATS! He is neutered, up to date on vaccines and microchipped. He would love an active home, especially one with another playful dog. There is a small adoption fee for him; for more info please email info@sheprescue.org


“Gentle”and “loving” are the first words that comes to mind when thinking of Bruno!   This soulful 5-6 year old giant is friendly to everyone he meets, including small children.  Plus, he is great with other dogs; and, unlike many GSDs, Bruno gets along with small dogs!!   No kitties or chickens for Bruno, but he does like horses! Bruno is always up for an adventure so he willingly jumps into any vehicle!  He loves the outdoors - he is a beautiful sight to see running in wide-open spaces. Bruno has some obedience training; he knows “sit” and “down.”  He waits at the door to come in, and sleeps quietly in a crate.  Bruno is learning what indoors life is like; he is in the process of being house-trained and learning acceptable inside behavior.  He thinks having a canine buddy or two to show him the ropes will help him learn everything in a snap. Don’t pass Bruno up if you desire adog-friendly, polite andhandsome soul. He is waiting patiently to become your beloved family member. Bruno is neutered and has current vaccinations.  There is a small re-homing fee.  If interested in Bruno, please email info@sheprescue.org and tell them Bruno is your guy!


Gypsy is a gorgeous 11 month old Shepherd mix. GOOFBALL. She comleted a six-week, live-in training program to learn domestic manners. She is doing great and is solid in her commands –– check out her training video link below. Gypsy is a sweetheart! She is crate trained and house broken. Gypsy is available and would do best with active humans who will maintain her training routines. Her adopter will receive two in-home training session to help transition her into a new life. She is spayed and up to date with shots. There is a small adoption fee. For more info, please email: info@sheprescue.org

Dexter is a gorgeous 2.5 year old German Shepherd. His owners had to move from a house to a small apartment and feel Dexter would be happier in a home with a yard and owners who don't travel as much as they do. Dexter does well with larger dogs, not so much with small dogs or cats. He is housebropken, neutered and comes with papers from the breeder he came from. For more info please fill out an application HERE and Dexter's owners will get back to you shortly.

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 needs an experienced owner that will share an active lifestyle with her because she is a higher 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
