My story

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

Oso von Olching is a delightful, 2-year-old Shepherd mix. Oso is a handsome boy who is smaller in size and looks a bit like a fox. He has a perky and lively demeanor and is great with other dogs, even play-bowing and inviting them to run around the yard. When it comes to people, Oso can come across as shy at first, but give him a treat and he will immediately “sit” and do what you say – he is so smart! Oso may be around 2 years old, but he is still a puppy at heart. He is looking for an experienced adult owner to remind this energetic boy when it is time to play and when it is time to act his age. With structure and guidance, he has already improved walking on leash and calmly hanging out to watch what everyone is doing. This boy wants a life of running or playing fetch with the right family who can keep up with his training. (No cats please.) Oso is ready to run with you!

IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN Oso von Olching YOU MUST FILL OUT AN ADOPTION APPLICATION ON OUR WEBSITE: www.sheprescue.org

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.
