Story
Papaya is a 3 year old purebred German Shepherd, registered with AKC. She is the sweetest (and goofiest) girl and absolutely loves humans and is very gentle with children. Unfortunately, due to relocation and significant life change, it has become necessary for me to find her a new family to call home forever. It is imperative that the new prospective owner respect and be knowledgeable of GSD ownership requirements. Please feel free to reach out with any questions.

Story
Say hello to Lincoln! This handsome, big boy is looking for a dog savvy home that has plenty of time and energy to get his basic training under his belt. He is a real social butterfly with people but has shown to struggle when it comes to social skills with other dogs. He can be a bit jumpy and mouthy while on walks, to address this he`s been learning how to walk on a gentle leader and it has been doing wonders for his walking skills. He`ll require continued training and practice with the walking aide. Due to his large size and need for lots of training it is recommended he be adopted into an adult home and be the single dog in the home.He has been awarded a Goodpup Scholarship, which is one-on-one training at no cost to the adopter!

Story
Say hello to Micah! He is a timid but sweet dog who is looking for a comforting home that will help him build up his confidence and allow him to let his sweet nature shine through! Since he will need some extra TLC, we think he would do best in a patient home where everyone is over the age of 12 and able to work on his basic training and confidence building at his own pace through positive reinforcement. He has been awarded a Goodpup Scholarship, which is one-on-one training at no cost to the adopter!

Meet Chloe! This senior gal is excited to live her retirement years in bliss. She would love a family who can give her unconditional love and take her on evening strolls at sunset. We recommend Chloe going to a home where everyone is over the age of 16 and can really help her feel comfortable and loved. She has been awarded a Goodpup Scholarship, which is one-on-one training at no cost to the adopter!

Story
Taylor von Mirabel is a stunning little 8 week old Shepherd mix puppy. Taylor von Mirabel is in a foster home, offsite, and is NOT at our rescue location in Los Angeles. IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN Taylor von Mirabel YOU MUST FILL OUT AN 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.

Story
COURTESY POST: Meet Rex!  14 weeks old, weighing 30 lbs. Rex is a Malinois Mix puppy who started life with a tough break. Born just hours after his mom, Rhianna (also up for adoption), was rescued from the cold fields of Bakersfield. Rhianna, emaciated and pregnant, delivered Rex and his nine siblings shortly after her rescue—a true tale of survival. Thanks to our dedicated team in Bakersfield, these dogs have been socialized, loved, and cared for. Rex has grown into your typical, playful puppy full of life and love. He's smart and eager to learn, as Malinois are very intelligent animals. Rex thrives with training and mental stimulation. Owning a Malinois comes with responsibilities. They need training, exercise, and mental stimulation to thrive. We want to ensure that Rex finds a forever home committed to meeting his needs and providing him with the love and care he deserves. Please consider this commitment before deciding to adopt. Could you be the one to open your heart and home to this special pup?

Story
COURTESY POST: Meet RHIANNA! 4 years, 60lbs RHIANNA had a tough time before she found us. She was pregnant and struggling to survive in a cold field with her 7-month-old pup in Bakersfield. Luckily, we saw social media posts about them and managed to rescue her just in time. Less than a day later, she gave birth to 10 puppies—a real miracle! RHIANNA is such a sweetheart. She was a great mom to her puppies, but now they're older and she's ready for a forever family of her own. She's friendly with other dogs and loves people. Plus, she's not super high-energy, so she'd be the perfect new best friend for someone looking for a calm and loving companion. Could you be the one to give RHIANNA the happy home she deserves? If so please go to BakersfieldStrays.org and fill out an application.March 3, 2024, 5:47 am
