Dog of the Day: Shaggy from San Diego Humane Society!


Why I’d make a great companion: I’m a friendly dog looking for a fresh start at life with a loving family and home.

My favorite activities include: Words people often use to describe me are “affectionate” and “fun-loving.” I’m social with my canine pals and love spending quality time with my people friends. I enjoy being in the great outdoors and going for short walks. Housetrained, loyal and intelligent, I am always content by the side of a human companion.

Type of home I’m looking for: I will do well in a variety of homes, including a home with children. While I enjoy the company of other dogs, I would prefer not to be around cats.

Other things you should know about me: At a young age I was hit by a car, and now have an unstable knee and secondary arthritis. While I enjoy going for walks and lead a great quality of life, I am unable to tolerate vigorous or prolonged exercise. During the adoption process, my new pet parents will meet with a Humane Society veterinarian to answer any questions they may have and learn how to best care for me in the future. My adoption fee is $100 and includes my neuter, current vaccinations, permanent microchip identification, certificate for a free veterinary exam, and more!


San Diego Humane Society and SPCA pets are spayed/neutered, up-to-date on vaccinations and microchipped (some small animals, reptiles and birds excepted) prior to adoption. Please note that in order to make the best match possible, potential adopters must come to the Society in person to meet with an adoption counselor and complete the adoption process. All members of the household (including other pets, if possible) should be present to ensure the chosen pet is compatible with everyone. We do not place holds or do adoptions over the phone and we do not ship pets. For more information on the adoption process or to fill out an adoption questionnaire visit
