Meet Rollie! Rollie is 1.5 years old and weighs about 40lbs. He is a pointer/pit mix about 18” at the shoulder. Rollie was found wandering the streets. When he was picked up he was skeletal. He was put into a foster home, but sadly he had to go back to the shelter when his foster returned to the U.S. He's a smart and energetic young guy who loves to play. He's friendly and gets along well with others. He walks like a gentleman on the leash but can be a bit rambunctious when bursting with the joy of seeing you! He is very smart and can learn whatever you want to teach him. He would love a calm environment, lots of loving attention -- and tons of fun playtime. He is good with kids and other dogs, and is timid of cats. Rollie 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.
