Meet Naomi! This sweet girl is about 8 months old and weighs 21lbs. She was found abandoned with her mom and sister. Her mom is a smallish dog, about 25 pounds with short legs. Naomi will be a bit bigger than her mom. She is so sweet and happy and extremely playful. She is always wagging her tail even when she’s scared. She loves spending her mornings in the yard playing. She gets along well with other dogs, kids and cats. She needs some work on her leash skills, but she’s not too bad - she just gets distracted quickly, a basic obedience class would benefit her. She is pretty close to potty trained. Naomi was rescued from Guadalajara, Mexico and is being fostered in Bend, OR. 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.
