My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

Tia von Torgelow is a beautiful, 4-5 year-old Shepherd mix who could be your closest friend. She will listen to any story you may want to tell her; even if you tell the same story many times, she'll give you her fullest attention and pretend she never heard it before. You will never feel alone with Tia, who will be gazing into your eyes, making sure all is right with you. She is boundless in her affection and will wander to the ends of the earth with you. She enjoys running, playing ball and goofing off with her toys, In a supervised group, she gets along fine with other dogs, though she doesn’t care for cats. She’s not even that treat- motivated; all she wants and needs is guidance from her person. She is happiest with well-defined boundaries; after all, all she wants is to please her person. If you’re the kind of dog person who doesn’t yet have a pup to call your own, Tia wants to take that spot at your feet — while at rest and on the go. She walks well on a leash, knows sit and down, and takes treats with grace. The white splash on her chest looks like angel wings — are you the angel to this goddess?

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.
