My Story

Anton came into my life in July 2012. With boundless energy, he would climb all over me when I came home from work, bouncing off the walls with joy and nibbling at my arms - almost to make sure I was actually there. I quickly realized I needed to find an outlet for my energetic boy, so took up running with him on a regular basis and enrolled him in obedience and then "nose work" classes. It quickly became apparent that Anton was a "people person", well, dog, and I took him to get tested for being a therapy dog, which he passed despite my nervousness and flubs during the "test". Anton was a therapy dog with Love on 4 Paws for nearly two years - visiting patients at least three times a month at various LA area hospitals and kids at a group home in Pasadena - until last year when I had to "retire" him due to my schedule. People are shocked when I tell them he was a "throw away" dog. Anton was a street dog, picked up by a city shelter, and eventually rescued by Westside German Shepherd Rescue of Los Angeles right before he was due to be euthanized. I shudder to think of the fate that Anton would have undoubtedly faced if not for Westside, and am so grateful for work Westside has done, and is continuing to do. Westside doesn't just help dogs. It helps the community by saving these amazing creatures that become a part of our families and enrich our lives through the experiences we share together.

I'm inspired by the work of Westside German Shepherd Rescue of Los Angeles and wanted to support them by raising money as part of my participation in 2016 LA Marathon. Please help me help them by giving whatever you can using the 'Give Now' button. The more people that know about Westside, the greater their impact, so please also spread the word by sharing my page with your friends and family. Thank you in advance for your generosity, it means a lot!
