Street Dog Hero




Meet Cornelio! Cornelio is a lively happy boy who is about 18 months old and weighs 40lbs. He was found as a young pup by a Mexican man in Guadalajara. Cornelio was in awful shape and the man nursed him back to health. Unfortunately, he travels a lot for work and couldn’t keep him. Cornelio had been at the Ranch for about six months. He is a sweetie pie and loves to curl up next to you on the bed our couch. He enjoys walks and is great on a leash. He is very friendly and playful with other dogs but does not like cats! He is house trained, rides in the car well and is good getting a bath. Cornelio has been waiting for his turn and is really ready for a family to snuggle with. He was rescued from Guadalajara, Mexico and is being fostered in Bend, OR. 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.
