My story

Pauly von Plauen is a very handsome, 1-2 year-old German Shepherd mix. It doesn't take too long upon meeting someone at the rescue that Pauly drops any reservations. He's the kind of boy who will follow his people around and is very sweet once he knows you, but can be cautious with new people and may become protective in a home. He comes very calmly out of his kennel for a walk, and there is no issue with putting on and removing his collar. He walks in a heel position, happy to be out and about in a pack of dogs. In play groups he socializes well with other dogs in the yard, even meeting other dogs face-to-face. Exploring and sniffing about is fun too, and he loves to shadow the people around -- perhaps hoping for a treat. And he does appreciate treats! Treats seem to be a bit of a current obsession and he will do anything he is asked to do in order to get one, so it’s important to offer them with an open palm. He seems to be a medium-energy dog. Pauly is housebroken, knows some basic commands, and was apparently well-behaved left alone. He loves squeaky toys and he seems to have a fairly high prey drive, so no small dogs or cats. Pauly will be a devoted companion.

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.

In order to adopt any dog from Westside German Shepherd Rescue, one must fill out an adoption application first.

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. COVID-19 UPDATE: ADOPTION DAYS ******* Pre-approved applicants only ******* 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. No on-site screening at this time. Once approved and told to come meet dogs, we will be happy to help you.
