Meet Armando! This handsome guy is about 1.5 years old and weighs 33lbs. He’s very friendly with adults and kids. He’s playful and submissive with other dogs. He seems unsure about the cats he’s encountered but is not aggressive. He loves affection and likes to be cuddled and pet gently. He enjoys playing ball, chasing sticks and he runs like a whippet and jumps like a deer! He loves to run if given the space. He likes his kennel, is house trained and rarely barks. Armando knows sit but would benefit from some basic obedience training to sharpen up his manners and work on his recall. He is a great, energetic, cute as can be, family dog! Armando was rescued from Guadalajara, Mexico. Will you be his hero?
steps to adopting
The first step to adopting a dog from SDH is to complete the adoption application. The application takes a few days to be approved. Once completed and approved it is good for all dogs and saved for future use.
To finalize an adoption you must complete the contract and pay an adoption fee of $300. The adoption fee helps cover our costs. On average, per dog, it costs between $300-$700 for vetting, transport, sterilization and more. All dogs are rescued and do not transport to SDH until they are healthy and ready to be adopted. All dogs are vetted before they fly, given standard vaccines and rabies, dewormed, given flea/tick treatments and tested for heart worm. Most dogs are sterilized before they fly, however if this is not the case we will spay/neuter them once they arrive at our cost.
Upon arrival all dogs are seen for a wellness exam and parasite screening. Any treatment necessary is at our expense.
