Meet Greta! This girl has the cutest wiggle butt! She is 2-3 years old and weighs about 35-40lbs. She was rescued by a local animal activist in Mexico. She is a loving little girl who adores attention and always has a smile on her face. She’s got great leash manners! She’s great with other dogs, is medium/low energy and happy to laze on the couch with you or hit the trail for a walk. She is potty trained and has great recall. She has had problems with UTI infections in the past so she needs a special brand of kibble to combat these. She would do best with kids 10+. Her foster mom can't say enough good things about how quiet and mellow this gal is! She is easy breezy! Greta 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. 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.
