Meet Dingo! This dark grey pit mix is a total love. He is about 50lbs and gets along great with other dogs of all sizes and kids. Cats are unknown. He likes to get and give affection and is very mellow and sweet. He loves nothing more than to be next to you for kisses and love. Even though he wants attention he is patient and will wait his turn. Dingo is very smart and knows some basic commands but is eager to learn more. He is quickly catching on to potty training, is food motivated and loves positive reinforcement. He settles well in his crate with a bone and is very gentle with toys. He loves long walks or a run and is great on a leash. His foster describes him as a little love bug. Dingo 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.
