Greg is an adorable male McNab-Border Collie mix puppy who just arrived in Oregon from Oklahoma with another big group of dogs. Please help us in welcoming this wonderful pup to the Pacific Northwest! He’s sweet, shy, but really friendly once he warms up and already becoming more and more confident … with things like leashed walks, car rides, crate training, pottying outdoors, running with the pack and he sure loves affection. SDH has once again partnered with Dog is My Copilot, an amazing fellow non-profit organization that specializes in providing much needed flight transporting services for at-risk animals from overcrowded shelters to rescues and adoption centers around the country. Could he be your next furry family member? These are shelter dogs, and many of which come with very limited background information or history of their life prior to arriving at the shelter in Oklahoma. It’s all too common that dogs like these are faced with the harsh reality of being euthanized in order to make room for so many other unwanted animals. As with owning and raising most street or shelter dogs, having patience, providing training and guidance, and offering lots of opportunities for socialization can be highly beneficial to your new pup’s long term success. Many of these dogs can also benefit from having someone who’s around most of the day who can tend to their needs, especially during the initial transition and adjustment period once in a new home/environment. Young pups like these will benefit from training, guidance, patience and lots of socialization opportunities, which will help with their growth and development. Someone who’s home most of the day who can tend to all of their puppy needs as they learn and grow would be ideal for a young pup’s long term success. Submit your adoption application today and don’t miss this opportunity to bring Greg home for a home trial towards his adoption. Stay tuned for more updates and photos as he settles in with his temporary foster family in Oregon. Will you be his hero? Steps to adopting – Adoption applications will be kept on file for 1 year and can be applied towards multiple adoptions within that time frame. 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 multiple adoptions and saved for future use. To finalize an adoption you must complete the contract and pay an adoption fee of $550. The adoption fee helps cover our costs. On average, per dog, it costs between $500-$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 heartworm. 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 parasite treatment necessary is at our expense. Once the adoption is finalized, any further medical care or treatment will not be covered by SDH, unless discussed prior. All known issues are disclosed to the best of our ability prior to finalizing the adoption.
