Meet Twiggy! This precious gal is only about 3 1/2 months old. She was abandoned with her mom and a sister. Her mom is a smallish dog, about 25 pounds. So we think Twiggy will be her size or smaller. What’s most noticeable about Twiggy is she loves to cuddle. When you pick her up she will put her head on your shoulder, it’s like holding a baby. She likes to just stay still and cuddle. When she is with her mom and sister they romp and play and chase each other. She is just a pup so is good with kids, cats and other dogs. Twiggy 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.
