About Homer von Hofen

Homer von Hofen is a very handsome and distinguished older German Shepherd. We aren’t sure how old he is, his lifetime of neglect shows. He hasn’t had a loving home in years, someone who fed him every day and took him to the vet and loved him. He now had his ears flushed because of chronic ear infections, blood work and x-rays done. We can’t turn back the clock, but we can keep him comfortable. The volunteers like to hang out in front of the rescue when they can with Homer, he loves to cross his paws and enjoy their company and just bask in the sun. He is very housebroken. He doesn’t ask for much, a little love, a place to nap and access to a yard so he can work on his tan in the sun. He is grumpy with other dogs in his face, so just you and Homer with no other furry ones would be perfect! We aren’t sure how long Homer has, but we would love to make whatever time he has left count! IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN Homer von Hofen 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.

Admiral von Amorbach is a gorgeous 12-month-old German Shepherd. This pup walks wonderfully on leash, despite his careful approach to new situations. He’ll stick by your side like a good boy while he’s getting comfortable in his surroundings. And he's a very manageable size, weighing in the mid 50s. Admiral meets dogs at the rescue well – he can be shy but sweet when encountering his four-legged friends (but is a no for small dogs). With a great, medium level of energy, this boy loves human attention. In his playgroups, he generally meets other dogs well and returns frequently to his beloved humans to check in and get some petting action (he did let us know that he prefers easy-going dogs like himself). If you’re looking for a good boy like Admiral, he would love to review your application!

Anina von Amerang is a stunning, 19-month-old German Shepherd. Alluring Anina is a beautiful big white pup with a sweet and somewhat shy personality. Her looks are striking, but it's her sweetness that will win your heart. Once she knows you are a friend, she warms up quickly and loves to be petted all over -- especially around her pretty pink ears! With a medium-energy level, she's a smart young lady who already wins treats for a perfect sit or down. Adding another plus to her list, she displays good leash manners and likes to stay close to her person. Anina, who meets and walks well with other dogs, also does well in her playgroups, where she socializes with ease -- however, she's not accepting any kitty friendship requests at this time!

Annabella von Arnstein is a beautiful 4 year old cream Shepherd mix. Annabella’s true personality will come to life as she feels more secure and warms up. She's another girl from a rural area who is adjusting to a new kind of life. While she appears shy and a bit timid at first, once she gets comfortable she will quietly come up to you, and she can bond quickly with her chosen person once in a home. Annabella is looking for a calm adult home that gives her time to adjust and also sets the rules. She is housebroken and enjoys a game of fetch. She enjoys her walks around the rescue, staying close to her handler as she can be a little shy in new environments. She meets other dogs with a wagging tail, but pushy dogs tend to intimidate her. In playgroups she's a curious girl as she wants to know what everyone is doing. If you’re looking for a sweet and devoted companion, Annabella would like to meet you.

Aramis von Arbach is a delightful, 16-18-month-old, Shepherd/Kelpie mix (we're guessing). Sweet and engaging, this boy is a hand-nudger, intent on winning some major petting. A smart fellow, mid-energy Aramis is housetrained and behaves well when left in the yard. He's already mastered a long list of commands and proudly takes his treats for doing them! With great leash manners, he prefers to walk close to you and is always attentive to his person. He sits calmly if you stop and does well meeting other doggies along the way. After learning to thrive in his playgroups, Aramis now shows his playful side at times, but he's still a "no" for kitty buddies.

Army von Arzberg is a very handsome, 4-year-old Shepherd mix (male) with a message to you all! Hi, my name is Army, and I’m the longest resident at Westside, but please keep reading, don’t be afraid! I have turned over a new leaf and I just need a certain kind of home. Unfortunately my last homes just had too much chaos for me. I came to Westside with the name Army and it suits me. I like order and structure, otherwise I get nervous. Because I like a calmer home life, I prefer one without kids, cats and small dogs. I have been living with a trainer for the last two weeks, and he and his wife have nothing but good things to say about me. They have their own dogs and I’m fine with that, however I tend to be a bit bossy so it's best that I am your one and only. I’m good on the leash, know some commands like sit, down, come and go. My guarding seems to be a thing of the past. I love my crate with the door left open so I can retreat in there when I need a little break. I like to follow my humans around and sleep by their feet. Sometimes my puppy side comes out and I get the zoomies, running back and forth in the house, (humans seem to think this is funny) but then I swith back to adulthood and chill again. I’m housebroken and good in the house. When I am at the rescue, some of the volunteers take me out for the day and we go hiking and have so much fun, but then I have to go back to the kennel again. :-( I go to Urban Training every Saturday to keep my obedience skills sharp, and I’m very good at it if I say so myself. I’m really trying very hard to be a model citizen. Would anyone give me a chance at a forever home? You should come meet me, my buddies, and my trainer so you can understand me. Don’t forget, I will always be loyal and faithful to you for giving me this chance.

Brie von Brehme is a beautiful, 6-7 month-old Shepherd mix. Brie is sweet girl who is still adjusting to her new environment at Westside—she is a little hesitant to come out of the kennels and can be on the shy side with new people. She arrived at the rescue with 2 other dogs, including Charger, and would love to be with him or another dog in her new home. She socializes very comfortably with other dogs and enjoys exploring the yard. Brie will greatly benefit from some patience and additional training. With more time, Brie is sure to come out of her shell and thrive in a secure home. Can you give Brie the love she needs?
