Facts about Iris

  • Breed: Pit Bull Terrier/Boxer Mix

Iris is pure joy, in the shape of a 2 year old, compact white dog. She is sensitive, intelligent, and athletic. Iris is deaf and has limited vision in one eye. Despite her disabilities, Iris knows basic commands such as sit, down, leave it, touch, and come with the aid of hand signals and a vibration collar. We have no doubt that smart Iris can learn much more! She is crate trained, spayed, and up to date on her vaccines. She lives by the motto "Play hard, nap hard," and is an expert cuddler.

Iris would do best as an only dog, and may not do well with small children due to her clumsy strength. But she will love you as much as ten dogs would- she's nothing if not adoring! Iris must have a securely fenced yard. She greets us each day with a wagging tail and a big ol' grin, so she must know it's just a matter of time before her forever family finds her!

Iris is eagerly awaiting her forever home, and is located in Oakley, Utah.

About Jason Debus Heigl Foundation

About Our Rescue Group...

The Jason Debus Heigl Foundation was founded by Nancy and Katherine Heigl to celebrate the memory of a wonderful son and brother. In 1986, Jason was killed in a car accident. He was only fifteen years old.

Throughout his brief lifetime Jason loved all animals, especially dogs and cats and monkeys. He lived his life extending compassion and kindness to all creatures great and small. This foundation is his legacy.

The mission of the JDHF is to eliminate the needless suffering inflicted on animals by human cruelty, indifference, and ignorance. Our primary focus is the greater Los Angeles area, for now.

In pursuit of our mission, the JDHF routinely funds:

Our internal rescue group, the Heigl Hounds of Hope.
Other qualified rescue groups, via Networking donations.
The Transport of LA shelter dogs to states with great demand.
Free Spay Neuter procedures for the pets of qualified caretakers.
Compassion Education programs.
And we thank you for your support.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We are located in the Los Angeles area and we do adoption events around town. Just check out our website to find out where and when!

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption process is a couple of steps.

We ask you to begin by filling out an adoption application to express your interest in any of our animals. Once we receive the application and looked it over, we will contact you to answer any questions you may have about the pet and set up a meet and greet with the 4 legged friend you are interested in.

At that point, if you are interested in moving forward with the adoption, we will conduct a home check to make sure everything's good. We will ask you to sign an adoption agreement and ask for a donation of $150 for the adoption process.
