Meet handsome Burley. We believe Burley is a Pointer mix that is between 18 months and 2 years of age. Sadly, Burley's elderly owner passed away and after she died he wandered away from the house. He was found in a gas station parking lot and was taken to a shelter. We do not know if Burley understands what happened to his owner, but we do know that he is missing having a home and someone to love him and someone to love back. He is sweet as can be, he is great with kids and other dogs. He has just the right amount of energy, he is used to playing by himself but we are sure with love and patience he would love to have someone play with him. He loves toys - Kongs are his favorite! He is crate trained and walks well on a leash. We encourage for Burley to attend obedience training as it appears he hasn't had any formal training. An ideal home would have a fenced in yard, if not Burley will need lots of walks and other ways of getting off leash play and exercise, such as at a dog park. Burley has storm anxiety which seems to be well-managed by a thundershirt. If you would like to give Burley a loving fur-ever home, please fill out an application. Don't keep this lov ing guy waiting, Burley is going to make a great family dog!
Medical Note:  Burley has been treated for heartworm disease with melarsomine injections.  Once treatment is completed and the dog tests negative for microfilaria, the dog will be cleared to resume normal activity and able to be adopted.  Untreated heartworm disease can cause lasting damage to the heart, lungs and arteries, and can affect the dog’s health and quality of life even after the parasites are gone, possibly presenting as medical complications and/or new conditions in the future.  Burley showed no symptoms of heartworm disease before or during treatment.  A good resource for more information on heartworm disease is: .  Please check with your vet if you should have any questions or concerns about this condition, and discuss any concerns you may have with your SOS Adoption Counselor. 
Adoption Fee: $370

If you have questions or concerns on any of this, you can discuss this with your Adoption Counselor.

Our Adoption Process...

Step 1: Find Fido

Review our online dog bios, email us if you have any questions. At SOS, we want to make the RIGHT right match, and that means helping you and Fido start a relationship – sometimes from a long distance.

Take your time, explore your options, consider your home and what kind of companion will fit in your lifestyle.

Step 2: Complete Our Application

Once you think you have found the right dog for you, please complete our online application.

At SOS, we don’t just want to make a match, we want to make the right match. To do this, we need your help; we know our dogs, but we don’t know you yet – our application helps us get to know you!

Step 3: Have a Talk

We will review the application and if it appears to be a good match for the selected dog, we will arrange for a time to talk with you over the phone.

Step 4: Meet Your Match

If, after the phone interview, the match seems to be a good one, we will be happy to arrange a meet-n-greet with you and the dog, if the dog is local. Meet-n-greets will be scheduled in the order they are requested.

Step 5: Application Screening

Once everyone has met (if the dog is local), and the match seems to be a good one, a designated SOS volunteer will check your landlord, vet, and personal references, as relevant. We may also require a home visit or adopter meeting.

Step 6: Finalize The Adoption

If the match is a good one, you will be informed via email of the adoption decision, and provided with instructions for how to pay the adoption donation and complete our adoption contract/addendum(s).

Step 7: Pick Up Your New Best Friend!

Once the adoption is finalized, congratulations! We will contact you to make arrangements to pick up your new family member!
**Please note that additional vetting,quarantine and/or waiting periods may be required depending upon your state of residence.
