About Brandie von Brakel

Brandie von Brakel is a beautiful 3-year-old German Shepherd mix – a special girl who needs a special owner. She's a sleek lady with a striking face and sparkling eyes. Her leash manners are good and, when needed, she listens attentively to corrections. House-trained and intelligent, Brandie already knows her basic commands and is eager to please. This sweet and playful girl needs a confident, kind and no-nonsense female owner who will set boundaries and who will not provide an overdose of physical affection, which causes Brandie to become overly protective of her owner and aggressive towards outsiders. She should be the only dog in the family. Our Miss Agility can jump a 5-foot fence so a secure environment is important. Westside’s professional trainer will help to transition Brandie into your home. IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN Brandie von Brakel YOU MUST FILL OUT AN ADOPTION APPLICATION AT 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.

Alani von Aichtal is an adorable 1-2 year old Shepherd mix. This beauty can be bashful at first. But she is so trusting of people and so sweetly endearing that, in play groups, she prefers human company because that is where all the petting comes from. Alani loves all the attention she can get and rubs up against a person just like a cat! Unexpected or loud noises bring her closer to her handler. She is cautious when meeting new dogs, and she finds the pushier ones intimidating and tells them to leave her be. However, once reassured she has nothing to fear, she walks nicely on a leash in a group of dogs, with her lovely head held high. Alani will look to you for loving guidance, and she will return to you unwavering attention and affection.

Anton von Apolda is a very handsome 2-3-year-old German Shepherd. Sporting beautiful markings on his face and body, Anton is a tender soul who needs a gentle hand and slow approach to adjust to new circumstances and new people. With time, his trust in you will only grow and his sweet nature will reveal itself. Once comfortable, this mid-energy fellow is sweet and calm, even during his bath. Anton loves his walks, and he’ll surely tell you all about how he can’t wait for an adventure with you! With some further leash training, Anton will be walking like a pro in no time at all. He meets dogs well on and off-leash and seems comfortable being with them. With the right pup, he can even be playful! Gorgeous Anton can’t wait to meet you and become part of your pack, furever.

Axel von Apolda is a very handsome 1-2 year old Shepherd mix. Axel started his journey to Westside not knowing what life was really about. He previously lived in a rural area where we suspect he was not exposed to many people or different situations. Our professional trainer is working with this special boy who needs an equally special owner -- one who is experienced with dogs, as well as calm and matter-of-fact versus sentimental or overly-affectionate -- one who will continue Axel's transformation, together with some complementary training that Westside will provide in his new adults-only home. Axel has come so far. He now starts his day calmly and happily when he leaves his kennel. His leash manners, with just a little reminder, are great and he takes in all the smells of his new life as he walks down the street. Axel enjoys playgroups and interacts with all the dogs. He gravitates to the calmer dogs who match his personality and even enjoys playing with them. Those over-the-top ones, he avoids. At our rescue facility Axel has become an affectionate boy with the staff. He needs a little time to become comfortable with new people, so he needs someone willing to be patient with his progress. Axel will be so grateful for a confident owner whom he can trust to expose him to new experiences in life.

Bailey von Benzin is the sweetest 12 month old Shepherd mix on the smaller side. Bailey is a lover of people and happily says hello to everyone she meets. She loves to have her belly rubbed or just hang out and watch the news with you every night. She is comfortable in a crate and is always excited to go with you in the car while you run some errands on a cool day. She has a medium to higher energy level and would be an excellent running buddy, ball retriever, and would probably love to do some agility training, or go for long hikes with her family. According to her previous owner, she is excellent with kids and seems to gravitate towards them on walks. She has been around a 2 year old and 3.5 year old child and loved it. They chased her around, they played with her, they were even able to push her over on her bed so they can lay down next to her. She takes treats gently and is housebroken as long as she has access to the outside. Bailey would really enjoy another playful dog in her home as she loves to play. She is very fast (she might have some Greyhound in her ancestry) and enjoys being chased by another dog. She also has lived with a cat, but would need a little reminder training plus a cat that will let her know with a paw smack if she gets a little "excited". All in all Bailey is an amazing dog and will bring a lot of love and fun into your life.

Betty von Burk is a delightful 16 month old sable German Shepherd. Beautiful Betty is a gleeful girl with a perky personality. Her smile and cheery nature can light up the room. In playgroup, she invites any dog to play and has the time of her life in the yard. She walks well on leash and loves to have a doggy friend walk next to her. Alert, curious and responsive, her willingness to please makes her easily trainable. She already knows the sit command and takes treats gently. Being a young dog, obedience training will be important and something she’ll no doubt enjoy and excel at. This loving girl would do best in a German Shepherd knowledgeable, quiet, calm adult only home - a doggy friend to share her love of fun would be amazing. She’s good in the house and probably even housebroken. Sadly, Betty probably hadn’t had much exposure to the world. Socialization will be important to develop her management skills and to become accustomed to new experiences. Patience, support and positive reinforcement are the keys to building her confidence level. She will surely blossom into an incredible lovely lady. Betty really wants to be the best she can be and is eager to start her journey!
