My story

Atlas von Anzig is a stunning, 14-month-old German Shepherd sporting the classic good looks and confidence that personifies his breed. He’s stellar on leash, heeling next to you throughout the walk. Although he’s learned to stay off the furniture, he has been known to catch a few winks on the family sofa after his humans bed down for the night; mostly, though, he opts to sleep on a favorite rug elsewhere in the house. Independent and energetic, this he-man is friendly with all adults though not into snuggling; he savors being petted by you and enjoys playing with his toys. He is very comfortable in canine playgroups, greeting each new dog who enters the yard and mingling with the whole group. In the house he likes to follow you around to make sure you are completing your chores efficiently. Atlas is beginning to like car trips but, true to his no-furniture policy, he lies on the floor in the back of the car versus sitting on the seats. This guy has a strong prey drive towards small animals, so no small dogs or cats are foreseen in his future adults-only home. Like his mythological namesake, Atlas is ready to take on the world – and hopes to share yours!

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.
