Facts about Amigo

  • Breed: Dalmatian
  • Color: White - With Black
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: Amigo
A quiet Dalmatian is a special treat for an owner, and Amigo will bring this sort of peace to his new home. His dark brown eyes have a special gaze that shows you just how affectionate and gentle he is. Five years young, Amigo is housebroken, neutered and up to date on all vaccinations. A moderately sized Dalmatian, he weighs about fifty pounds, which makes him an ideal candidate for someone needing a Dal who is perhaps easier to control or walk.

At his last home, Amigo wandered out of his yard and was attacked and severely wounded by another dog. The vets at the Riverside Shelter stitched him up and he’s as right as rain now. His former owner found him in the shelter but decided to relinquish him. In this way, a loveable dog came into our care. During his two week hospital stay at our veterinarian's, we also had his teeth cleaned.

Amigo is a handsome fellow who does not like other dogs because of his terrible experience and he is not fond of cats. He will enrich some lucky person’s life with warmth—and with gratitude for being given a second chance to live in a loving home.

We place our dogs in the Southern California or nearby areas only. We do not ship dogs.

About Save the Dalmatians and Others Canine Rescue, Inc

About Our Rescue Group...

Who we are: Save the Dalmatians and Others Canine Rescue, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, tax-exempt organization dedicated to the rescue of Dalmatians from shelters, the promotion of adoptions of shelter Dalmatians and education of the public about the Dalmatian breed. We began in 1996 when founder Terri Haase and a friend started taking their Dalmatians to movie theaters during the showing of "101 Dalmatians" to distribute educational flyers in an attempt to stop impulse buying of Dalmatian puppies. Save the Dalmatians was formally incorporated as a California non-profit corporation in 1998. Our brochure provides more detail.

Further documentation on our 501(c)3 status may be requested by writing to Save the Dalmatians, 15507 S. Normandie Avenue #432, Gardena, CA 90247.

What we do: Save the Dalmatians and Others Canine Rescue specializes in rescuing Dalmatians, Dalmatian mixes and other breeds from shelters and finding new permanent homes for them.

We also provide placement support to others fostering rescued Dalmatians and to Dalmatian owners who wish to rehome their own Dalmatians.

Another very important function of our organization is public education about the Dalmatian breed. We disseminate information via mail, email, telephone and at adoption events. We also work with newspapers, radio and television to have information about Dalmatians published or broadcast.

Save the Dalmatians and Others Canine Rescue is an affiliate of the Dalmatian Assistance League. We are all unpaid volunteers.
