My story

Army von Arzberg is a very handsome, 4-year-old Shepherd mix (male) with a message to you all!

Hi, my name is Army, and I’m the longest resident at Westside, but please keep reading, don’t be afraid! I have turned over a new leaf and I just need a certain kind of home. Unfortunately my last homes just had too much chaos for me. I came to Westside with the name Army and it suits me. I like order and structure, otherwise I get nervous. Because I like a calmer home life, I prefer one without kids, cats and small dogs. I have been living with a trainer for the last two weeks, and he and his wife have nothing but good things to say about me. They have their own dogs and I’m fine with that, however I tend to be a bit bossy so it's best that I am your one and only. I’m good on the leash, know some commands like sit, down, come and go. My guarding seems to be a thing of the past. I love my crate with the door left open so I can retreat in there when I need a little break. I like to follow my humans around and sleep by their feet. Sometimes my puppy side comes out and I get the zoomies, running back and forth in the house, (humans seem to think this is funny) but then I swith back to adulthood and chill again. I’m housebroken and good in the house. When I am at the rescue, some of the volunteers take me out for the day and we go hiking and have so much fun, but then I have to go back to the kennel again. :-( I go to Urban Training every Saturday to keep my obedience skills sharp, and I’m very good at it if I say so myself. I’m really trying very hard to be a model citizen. Would anyone give me a chance at a forever home? You should come meet me, my buddies, and my trainer so you can understand me. Don’t forget, I will always be loyal and faithful to you for giving me this chance. Your friend, Army

Based on our experience, Westside's current thinking is to usually match first-time shepherd owners with a mix versus a purebred shepherd. Mixes are "softer" and somewhat more malleable. Exceptions can be made, however, for first-time adopters who show the confidence and leadership tendencies that purebreds will respect and respond to. Counselors have to use good judgment in assessing the attributes of the adopter, as well as of the dog. If you have doubts, get a second opinion from Robin or another experienced counselor.
