Meet Cole! What an easy going guy! He would make an exceptional family dog. He has the very happy and active qualities of a Lab but is a bit more compact. He is about 2 years old and weighs 40 lbs. He loves to take walks and play. He does very well with other dogs, kids and cats is very affectionate. His even temper speaks volumes. This guy could hang with you inside on a rainy day or hike and run with you outside. This swell guy is anxious to find a family to call his own. 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.
