My story

Hank von Hadenfeld is a gorgeous, 16-month-old Shepherd mix. This is an intelligent young fellow who is looking for a shepherd-experienced adult home. Hank is selective about people and likes a proper introduction and some time before he confides in you. Once you are judged worthy, however, he appreciates your company and will rub on you all over just like a cat. He is medium energy and knows his sit command. At times his more puppy side comes out. Hank is a champ for the on-leash walk and does great walking in a pack with other dogs. Though at first wary of strangers, he’s very bright and aware with a high degree of curiosity about the world and the creatures in it. He enters play group comfortably and with enthusiasm. In general, Hank is a social dog with other dogs and he meets them with a wagging tail and an invitation to play. However, he is very clear with pushy dogs that their behavior is unacceptable. Hank is a discerning canine who is seeking his discerning human counterpart.

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.
