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!


****** 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

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

My name is Lucy (2) and I’m a five year old shepherd who is looking for a loving family. I love people and playing with toys. Everyone likes walking me because I’m well behaved on a leash and pretty easy going. I love to roll around in the grass with my tongue flailing around! I’m not a big fan of little dogs or cats. Small fluffy things look like toys to me! While I would do best as the only dog in the home, I think I could make friends with another large male dog if I am introduced properly. I love my walks, but I also love exploring and chasing balls! Any exercise works for me! Please consider me when looking for your next loyal goofball! If you are familiar with shepherds, I’m sure you will fall in love with me in no time. I have not been with CARL long, but I have already made a ton of new friends! To fill out an adoption form please visit carldogs.org 

Chloe is a beautiful 15 month old Shepherd mix weighing in just under 50 pounds. Chloe is a darling girl, super affectionate and she loves belly rubs from her humans. Her last owners didn't spend much time with her, so she is now learning how to walk well on leash and how to be polite when other dogs are walking by. She takes her duties as "family protector" seriously, and will make sure her humans are safe. Because of her more protective nature, she will need an experienced owner who is able to show her when her help is needed and when she can relax. Because she is protective, a home without kids is best so she doesn't feel she needs to protect her "kids" from visiting friends. She can be picky with the dogs she likes so maybe an easygoing male would be ok if her new home has another dog. She is now enrolled in a 'live-in' training program, and her adoption comes with 4 training sessions to ensure a successful adoption. Please give Chloe a chance, she will make an excellent addition to the right family, ideally away from the crazy busy world of city life. She is spayed and up to date with shots. For more info, please email: geckotale@icloud.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
