My story

Mika von Manhagen is a gorgeous, 14-month-old German Shepherd. Not just beautiful, but brilliant - that’s Mika. She’ll impress you with her skills from day one, whether it’s knowing a myriad of commands like “sit,” “down,” “stay”, “paw” and “leave it," and being housebroken and crate-trained. Mika was good with children in a prior home, and enjoyed games of fetch and hide 'n seek. She is looking for a Shepherd-savvy home with confident people who can guide her, as she can feel the need to protect her people and property. At the rescue, Mika has done well meeting people and has been okay around other dogs, meeting them well on walks or in playgroups, mostly keeping to herself. At her core, she's a people-pup. She’s very motivated by her humans (and treats) and super eager to please them. For this reason, she’s looking for people that can keep up with her aptitude and training and challenge her to learn even more. If you are looking for a young and beautiful true Shepherd, Mika might be the one for you!

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.

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.
