My story

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

Roxanne von Rohl is a beautiful, 2-year-old German Shepherd (mix?). Roxanne is earnestly looking for an adult home to call her own. A bit shy upon first meeting you, she needs a little time to adjust and get to know you. Once she does, she's just the sweetest girl (a favorite of some of our staff), and loves the attention she can win. Coming in at a medium-energy level, she seems to be house-trained, is obedient and eager to please her person. She already knows a list of commands and is a gentle treat-taker. On her walks, Roxanne shows good leash manners and likes to sniff and explore the outside world. She does well in her playgroups and greets other dogs nicely, and is currently sharing her run with another dog. Roxanne has also tested well with small dogs, but is a NO for kitty pals.

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

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.

Their adoption process

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.
