PLEASE COMPLETE OUR ADOPTION APPLICATION AT WWW.LOVEBUGSRESCUE.ORG IF YOU'D LIKE TO BE CONSIDERED FOR ADOPTION: Gia was an urgent save out of SEACCA within moments of her scheduling to be euthanized for space. We are so glad we were able to scoop her to safety just in time! Gia is a 1 1/2 year old, 48 lb "pocket" Pittie who is super sweet and silly. She is crate trained and loves going for walks. Gia has a medium energy level and loves to play with balls, tennis, football, soccer - she isn't picky! And she will even bring the ball back! Gia enjoys cuddling with her humans and is very loving. She loves other dogs, but does need a slow warm up to new dogs. An ideal home for Gia would be one that is looking for a loving gal, and has some time to build her confidence up a bit. Gia is treat motivated which will help with conditional training. Gia's adoption fee is $350 and includes her microchip, spay, vaccines current, deworming and flea meds.

Story
I took blue home when he was 4 weeks. I bottle fed him and cared for him since he needed to be removed from his mother sooner than expected. He has been only with me and my two boys. He is an excellent dog and at times I think he thinks he is a person. A huge cuddle bug and overall lovable companion. Unfortunately I lost my job in Aug and just recently have been told I need to move. Due to my circumstances I can not keep him. I tired to find him a home with freinds or family and no one can take a large dog. He is house trained, kennel trained and has been professionally trained. He understands commands, sit, down, quiet, stay, come, etc. he is truly in my opinion the best dog. He’s great with other people, dogs and kids. I don’t believe he’s ever been around a cat.

Story
Meet Mason! He is a reserved dog who can come across as a bit stoic. He could definitely use some help building up his confidence and letting loose in his new home. Due to his stoic nature he would be best in a home where everyone is over the age of 16 and can give him the time and space he`ll need to adjust to his new home. He will need help with his basic training especially his walking as he can be stubborn if he finds something he`s very interested in. He has been awarded a Goodpup Scholarship, which is one-on-one training at no cost to the adopter!

Story
Meet Makenzie! She is a sweet and energetic young dog that could benefit from an experienced home to get her into a good routine and structure around her day. She was reported to have some bad tendencies when it came to high value food and would try to snatch food when possible. She`s been showing some improvement but will still need training to help her address her behavior so that her sweet and energetic side can shine through and become a great new addition to the home. We recommend she go into an adult home only that can help offer her the training and stimulation she needs.

Story
Ty von Houston is a beautiful 7-8 year old Pitbull. She is a blue nose Pitt Bull who was grandfathered into WGSR as a puppy when we moved to our facility on Hill Street 7 years ago. It saddens us that she has been living in a kennel ever since. She is fed well and our staff walks her every day, but Ty needs a big-hearted adopter to show her what it’s like to live in a home and be loved by her very own person(s). Ty’s a big, sweet girl who loves getting belly rubs. She walks well on leash and enjoys running and playing with other dogs. She is housebroken and crate-trained. She likes giving kisses and just lounging by your side. Ty also revels in rolling on her back in the grass. She has a wicked tail wag that makes her whole butt wiggle. She has fun playing with puppies/young dogs at the rescue. She’s also treat-motivated and takes them gently. She did a few weeks of in-home training and was amazing. This special girl knows her sit and down commands and likes to show off in our kiddie pool. She is protective of her home, but isn’t that a good thing? Ty needs a loving hero – might it be you? IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN Ty von Houston 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.

I am fostering Avery, a beautiful, two-year-old, female, pit-lab mix, 45lbs, spayed, microchip, all shots. Avery is well-behaved, and is showing remarkable progress in crate training and is house trained. She has interacted with my two dogs with no incident. She is affectionate, intelligent, curious, playful, smart, funny, and incredibly sweet. She responds well to direction, is easy to leash, and has a tolerant and obedient nature. I've been taking her to the dog park every day where she loves to run and play with the other dogs. She is so sweet it's ridiculous. Please adopt Avery she will make a wonderful addition to any loving family.

Story
Look into those soulful eyes. Now look at this paragraph. Hey, hello, I know those eyebrows are stunning, but there's more to this lady than her *fetching* looks. Nala's loves nothing more than to embrace her potato body and spirit with some hardcore couch time with her person. Though if her person goes... anywhere else, she'll happily join (work from homers, you're looking at an A+ office mate here). She heard that human girls go to the bathroom in groups and she'd like in on that please! When she's not snoozing, Nala likes a leisurely stroll through the neighborhood once the crowds have died down. She would prefer to amble down a quaint and sleepy lane than Downtown Disney. That said, if a polite new friend wanders up to say hello and offer a pat, she's not going turn it down. If you're in the market for some emotional support during those Last of Us jump scares, Nala promises to hold your paw!

Story
Meet Carter! This big bundle of energy is looking for a lively home that can keep up with him. He can be bit intimidated by new people and will alarm bark to show it. He`s slow to warm up but once he gets comfortable it`s best friend time! Carter isn`t the biggest fan of kids or other dogs so he could use some help opening up his social skills with some training. We think he would do great in a home where everyone is over the age of 16 and has the time and commitment to help work on his training so he can become the new star of the family! He has been awarded a Goodpup Scholarship, which is one-on-one training at no cost to the adopter!
