Video: Short Documentary About L.A.’s Westside German Shepherd Rescue


Here’s a beautiful short documentary about Robin Jampol, founder of the Westside German Shepherd Rescue in Los Angeles. She puts her life-long love of animals into action by helping to save hundreds of abandoned dogs each year.

Running such an operation requires a seemingly limitless capacity to deal with tragedy, but there are also wonderful successes. When she’s asked how she can keep doing such difficult work, Robin replies, “Because we love them so much, that’s what keeps us going, and everyone’s very special. . . . Even though it is a lot of heartbreak and a lot of hard work, it feeds your soul.”

  1. Hello, my name is Michelle Howard and I’ve inherit a German shepherd . He belongs to my son but my son is out of the country. And I’m really unable to take care of him I work long hours and he’s left in a tiny one bedroom apartment till I get home to walk him. It’s a lot for me to take care of him so I was hoping to find a place that could take care of him without euthanizing him. But the only problem with him is that he doesn’t get along at all with other dogs and he’s really skittish around certain people it took almost a year for him to trust me. He was a homeless dog that followed my son and then my son took him in but now I have him and it’s really not fair for him to be treated like this. So I’m really hoping you’re able to help us.
    Thank you!
