My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

Leonardo von Lehe is an adorable 2 year old Shepherd mix. This sweet, huggable fellow is initially reserved around people but, given time, he approaches you for affection. Leo is being fostered in a home with 3 resident dogs, 2 of them a large size and 1 a Chihuahua. Playtime in the yard with his doggie siblings is high on his daily "to-do" list. He likes to romp with his toys, which he gathers into a pile after playing tug-of-war with his buddies. His fluffy mane surrounding a handsome face has heads turning when his foster mom takes Leo for a walk. This young hunk accepts treats gently, is working on his basic commands and is nearly potty-trained! In his doggy dreams, Leo sees himself in a forever home that definitely includes another dog, and older children would be fine as well.

Leonardo von Lehe is in a foster home, offsite, and is NOT at our rescue location in Los Angeles.

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.
