Meet Giselle! Giselle is a very sweet and happy girl who was rescued with two puppies. They were forced to live on the street and were being fed by a very nice Mexican family whose landlord would not let them take the dogs in. Even after that, Giselle is a joyful, happy and docile girl. She always has a big smile on her face and is happy to take a walk, play in the yard or just cuddle up with people. She is about 2 years old, weighs 30lbs and gets along great with dogs, kids and cats. She walks very well on a leash and is a dream passing by other dogs. She never barks, even at the doorbell! She prefers to have a human or dog pack mate around her. Giselle would do best with a human who will do some basic obedience training with her. Giselle adores an evening of Netflix, treats and snuggles and is ready to cuddle up with you tonight! Giselle is being fostered in Bend, OR. She was rescued from Guadalajara, Mexico. Will you be her 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.
