Facts about Sol

  • Color: Brown/Chocolate - With White
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Male
Meet our handsome new fellow, Sol! Sol recently arrived in San Francisco after we received a request for assistance from our rescue contacts in Puerto Rico. Our wonderful contacts made sure he was in good health, neutered, vaccinated and microchipped before he arrived in San Francisco. Sol is settling in well in the city, and has already attended two adoption events. He was happy go lucky and had his tail wagging with everyone he met, both people and dogs. Sol was especially gentle and calm around young children, and would work well in most households.

Sol is a Beagle or Beagle mix, approximately 5-6 years old. Beagles typically have a life span of 12-15 years old. They are scent hounds that were used primarily to track rabbits, hares and foxes, so they do like to follow the trail of an interesting scent (outdoors and indoors,) and can be reluctant to come when called if they are on a good scent. Beagles are known for being good family companions, as they are generally happy and gentle with people. They are hounds, though, so they do bark some and sometimes howl.

This wonderful boy is learning to walk on a leash, as this was never required of him before. Once he masters his leash skills, he should be a great walking companion. Sol's breed is typically active, but he personally is more of a moderate activity level dog. He will need regular exercise and portion control to help him lose a little weight and maintain his proper weight, which should be about 22 - 25 lbs.

About Wonder Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Wonder Dog Rescue has a long history of rescuing dogs in need! Our founder, Linda Beenau, was introduced to rescue in 1992. She assisted Nancy Ford, a long-time Boston and Pug rescuer. Over time she formed Bay Area Boston Terrier Rescue. As time went on, the group grew, and began helping dogs of all sizes, shapes and breeds. Wonder Dog Rescue is the synthesis of this progression.

We are a dedicated volunteer group, serving the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond, and rescuing dogs from all over Northern and Central California. Wonder Dog Rescue has saved blind and deaf dogs, puppies as young as two weeks and seniors as old as 15! We offer hospice to special needs and elderly dogs, caring for them until the end of their lives. Each animal has so much to offer… and we learn so much by opening our hearts to these deserving companions.

When a dog comes into rescue he or she is evaluated carefully. All dogs receive vaccinations and are spayed or neutered, and some dogs receive additional medical care or behavior modification. We work with each dog, giving them the love and structure they need to move onward. Dogs stay in foster homes until they are matched with their ideal family. We want these adoptions to be life long, and take this very seriously!

Volunteers help in the transporting of dogs from shelters, socializing & walking, bathing, fostering and assisting at mobiles. Email us if you have even two hours a week and want to make a real difference in these animals' lives.... you won't be sorry!

Come Meet Our Pets...

You are invited to come to our Mobile Adoptions every Saturday! Locations may vary, please see our website for location and time.

Thank you!

Our Adoption Process...

We adopt dogs to homes in Northern California. Very few exceptions are made, and we never ship dogs. We receive many wonderful applications from people in the Pacific Northwest, Canada and Southern California. The issue with long-distance placements is this: We have no reliable way of getting the dog back to us if the adoption falls through. For this reason we must deny these applicants.

Adopters will sign a contract stating that the dog is to be returned to rescue if they are unable to keep the animal. We will take a dog back at ANY time. It is our deep commitment to these animals that they not be returned to shelters. We will also provide you lifelong assistance.... Please contact us at any time with questions about health, nutrition and behavior. We'd rather meet up with you and do some needed training than to have you surrender the dog. Adoptions are a life-long commitment. We are here to help you fulfill the promise to your new dog.

Dog Adoption Fees

Questions about adoption fees are often the first we hear when speaking with potential adopters. We'd love to take a moment to break it down for you! Adoption fees can vary, depending on medical issues, age, breed and medical condition of the dog. Special exceptions are made for senior dogs and for families with special circumstances. Donations above the "fee" amount are considered tax-deductible by law.

Adoption fees for DOGS are a sliding scale, generally between $250 and $350. We will always try to lower the fee if you have special needs. PUPPIES and certain dogs may have higher adoption fees..... this is merely due to the costs associated with doing rescue.
