Meet Goliath

You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.Welcome to the story of the underdog making it through! Goliath was in absolutely heartbreaking shape wandering the streets of Mexicali. He was extremely emaciated and dragging a large metal chain from his neck. While we will never really know what happened, what we can guess is someone had him in the backyard and just stopped feeding him and somehow, someway he broke free. A good Samaritan noticed this walking skeleton on the street and took him home to try and help him. The first few weeks were touch and go. He actually was pooping rocks and wood because that is all he had to eat. With love, medical attention and food this big boy started to improve. It seemed he was out of the woods so we decided we wanted him to come to the USA and realize a better life. He has gained 40 pounds since arriving to San Diego! 40 POUNDS! He is a true gentle giant to his humans. He is goofy and jumps around. loves his toys and to chase the ball. Unfortunately, his life experience has left him with a view of other dogs are competition. It is pretty common with dogs who have been starved or who have suffered hunger and had to fight for their survival... literally. He would be best as an only dog and as an only pet. Due to his size, smaller children would not be a good fit, unless dog savvy and always supervised. Would you be willing to give this guy his chance at his best life?
