My story

Tiny Tim von Tegau is a striking looking 1-2 year old German Shepherd. Soulful and super sweet, Tiny Tim found himself in a high kill shelter over Christmas. The staff gave him the name after the character in the Christmas Carol, hoping for a miracle for him too! He had a congenital abnormality involving one leg and wasn't accustomed to full use of that leg, so now he is adapting fast to life on 3 legs. This boy is so endearing, he definitely enjoys getting all your attention, and loves getting petted all over. In fact, he will lean on you while getting head- and ear-scratches. With a gentle demeanor and pleasant medium-energy level, he comes out of his kennel calmly for his much-anticipated outing, staying close to his handler and walking happily in a large group of dogs. His easygoing personality is quickly revealed when he takes treats ever so gently and nicely interacts with the dogs present in the play yard. He explores the enclosure and also checks on the people from time to time to make sure they’re alright (actually his little ploy to get more petting). This special lad will warm your heart!

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.

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.
