Street Dog Hero



fozzy the bear

Meet Fozzy the Bear! Fozzy was dumped at a guard shack 20ft from the highway. He was only 3 months old at the time. Fozzy is goofy and lovable and the name "Fozzy" just fit him perfectly. He is a sweet boy who loves to play and he is very intelligent. He is about 8 months old and he loves to cuddle or at the very least, be curled up at your feet, he prefers to be with his human. He is very food motivated and is already learning sit and down and would benefit from some training to increase his confidence. He would make a good agility dog as he is very acrobatic. Fozzy does well on leash and is house trained. Fozzy is a Shepherd /Collie mix who will be medium/large when full grown. He gets along with other dogs, cats and kids and would do best in a home with a dog sibling. Fozzy 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.
