My story

Lexy von Liebstadt is a stunning, 3-year-old German Shepherd. Lexy is a very beautiful and very smart German Shepherd who will be a devoted and loving companion for a shepherd-experienced home. She does require a confident owner and proper introductions to new people. Lexy is housebroken, knows her basic commands and behaves herself alone at home or in the yard; she is highly motivated by praise from her handler/human. When it's time for an outing at the rescue she can be a bit unsure and shy but, with a little reassurance, she takes her place beside you and walks well on a leash next to a group of other dogs, whom she mostly ignores. Off leash in the play yard she is hesitant at first and is careful to avoid any problems. She is more likely to go to the people in the yard rather than the dogs. Lexy is so loyal that, once she is comfortable, she becomes your shadow. She is cautious by nature and history, and needs to be given time and patience to find her confidence and her place -- and that place will be as close to you as possible if you can offer her structure, guidance and love.

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.

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

In order to adopt any dog from Westside German Shepherd Rescue, one must fill out an adoption application first. Upon receipt of your application, a Westside adoption counselor will contact you.We do aerial home checks and you may be asked to supply pictures as well as arranging for a home visit prior to adoption.

Adoption fees vary with each dog and typically range from $150 to $500. They are set, taking into account the dog's age, training level, temperament, if they’re newly arrived, medical condition(s) (if any) and other factors. Adoption fees are used not only to rescue and place the dog you are personally adopting, but to aid in the future rescue and rehabilitation of other deserving dogs. Adoption fees are necessary; without fees our rescue efforts would quickly come to an end. The adoption fee includes spay/neuter, microchip and up to date vaccinations.
