By appointment only to meet this 4 leg boy; however, we do have other dogs available at our events:

Come and meet them at our adoption event or call us for an appointment during the week:

He is a very verbal boy - loves to fetch and loves his box of bones and toys - He will do great with another dog; especially with a female; currently we have a female Shepherd-Boxer-Labrador female of about 1 year old that gets along so well with him and will make a great addition to a family with a ranch life style- but he gets along with males with proper introduction.

He loves people and especially children!!

Please open your home and heart to Hachiko- he lived for over 1 year tied up to a chain with no shelter from rain or heat.

Please feel free to email foster at to schedule an appointment.

We hope to hear from you!! taking appointments to meet him during the weekdays from 2:30 to 6:30 pm.
