Meet Chestnut! Chestnut is a very handsome ball of fun who is about 2 years old! His happy heart shows in everything he does. He really love exercise and would do best in an active home with lots of adventuring! He needs some training as he jumps on people but always out of joy and exuberance. Once he settles down he is polite on a leash. He is great with other dogs and kids, cats are unknown. Chestnut is just over a year old and is ready to start the next adventure with you! He 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.
