Meet Melody

Meet Melody! Melody is an adorable Staffordshire-mix girl who's part of another group of lucky dogs who just arrived in Oregon from a shelter we partner with down in Tulare, CA. Before she gets adopted, she will be seen for her wellness exam, spayed, caught up to date on her shots and will also be microchipped. She's a little shy, but she's great with people and other dogs. Kids and cats are unknown at this time.

Write up from the shelter she and her mom Ariel came from: Ariel and Melody came in together and believed to be mother/daughter. They are kenneled together. Melody is a sweet and friendly pup. She's about 5 months old, spayed, and around 25 lbs. Ariel is approx 3 years old, spayed, and around 40 lbs. They are a sweet pair, but should do fine apart.

As for young pups like this, they can benefit from having someone who's home most of the day who can tend to all of their puppy needs and to begin learning through things like socialization and bonding, obedience and boundary-setting, as well as getting some good play time, exercise and enrichment/mental stimulation too. Submit your online adoption application through our website today and don't miss this opportunity to bring her home for a 3-day home trial towards her adoption. Will you be her hero?

Stay tuned for her foster's update!

steps to adopting

(OUR ADOPTABLE DOGS ARE IN SEPARATE TEMPORARY FOSTER HOMES BETWEEN BEND/CENTRAL OREGON AND THE GREATER PORTLAND AREA. THEREFORE, MEET AND GREETS ARE NOT DONE AT OUR FACILITY. TO LEARN MORE, PLEASE SUBMIT YOUR ADOPTION APPLICATION ONLINE AND OUR ADOPTION PROGRAM MANAGER WILL REACH OUT TO YOU WITH FURTHER INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO MEET YOUR NEW PUP!)

The first step to adopting a dog from SDH is to complete the adoption application. First click on the "OUR DOGS tab up above, and then click on the orange colored "Fill out an Adoption Application here" button to start the process). Once submitted, please expect 3-5 business days or sooner for processing and to hear back from us. Once you are pre-approved, your adoption application will remain on file with us for 1 year and it can go towards multiple adoptions within that 1 year time frame before it expires.

To finalize an adoption you must sign the adoption contract and pay the full adoption fee of $550. The adoption fee helps cover our costs. On average, per dog, it costs SDH between $500-$700 for vetting/medical/sterilization, transport and other rescue related expenses. All dogs are rescued and do not transport to SDH until they are healthy and ready to be adopted. All dogs are examined by a veterinarian before they fly, which includes sterilization whenever possible, given standard vaccines and rabies (if age appropriate). Most dogs are sterilized before they come into our program, however if this is not the case we will spay/neuter them once they arrive at our cost.

Upon their arrival, all dogs are seen for a wellness exam by SDH's medical team. Once the adoption is finalized, any further medical care or treatment will not be covered by SDH, unless discussed prior with our medical team. All known issues are disclosed to the best of our ability prior to finalizing the adoption.
