Honestly, this sounds like every puppy / adolescent dog I've ever known. Just like human babies, young dogs explore their environment with their mouth. Children eventually grow into exploring with their hands, then with their eyes, but dogs don't have agile hands and keep taking things into their mouths for longer. I've never known a puppy that didn't ...

My German Shepherd is similarly destructive with her toys (luckily only with those and not with stuff that isn't hers).

He may be doing this because he is bored. Try to stimulate his boredom by getting him an interactive treat toy, or you can even make toys out of tinfoil. When he keeps trying to pull off her whiskers, distract his attention by giving him something to play with.
