Street Dog Hero




Meet Brisco! This beautiful black lab/ heeler mix is one handsome fellow. He is super friendly and a bit on the bigger side at 60lbs. Brisco is great with other dogs of all sizes, loving and sweet. He is good with kids and cats. Brisco is a gentle giant who loves hugs and to be center of attention but is polite enough to wait his turn. He loves to swim and go hiking and would love an active human to take him on adventures. He is also calm and would be a great dog to take to work with you. He is leash trained and knows some basic commands but is very smart and eager to learn more. Brisco 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. You are also able to adopt a dog that is the right fit for you and your family and that fits your lifestyle.

  • To adopt a dog, you must complete an adoption contract and pay an adoption fee of $300. The adoption contract helps cover our costs. On average per dog it costs us 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 before they fly are vetted, given standard vaccines and rabies, dewormed, given flea/tick treatments and tested for heart worm. We also try to sterilize the dogs before they fly, but if this does not happen we will spay/neuter them once they arrive.

  • ALL animals MUST be sterilized within a month of arriving – and SDH will cover the cost. Once the dogs arrive they are vetted again with our vet and treated if needed. All SDH dogs (and cats) receive a lifetime of support.
