My story

Sophie von Salching is a delightful, 3-4 year-old German Shepherd mix. She is a smaller-sized (~40 lbs), friendly girl who likes to give kisses in exchange for full-body pets. Happy and outgoing, Sophie loves to meet people and pups alike, and she's always up for fun and adventure. She's also a smartie, and knows her "sit" and "down" commands, taking treats gently. She likes being active, and enjoys going on walks or runs and being around other dogs. In playgroup, she goes up to every dog with a wagging tail, and happily runs around. While she's sociable with all sorts of dogs and people -- she's not for cats. If you are looking for an affectionate and happy pup, Sophie may be the one for you!

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

Application link: http://www.sheprescue.org/Application_to_Adopt_a_Dog%20Main.html

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.

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. 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.
