Tazz is a 5 lb. male long hair apple head Chihuahua, born 7/30/08. He is very inquisitive and likes to explore at the dog park or the backyard. Due to his small size the fencing must be very secure because he can squeeze through the smaller areas. He has thin hair and during the cold months he likes to wear coats or sweaters he also likes to sleep under the blankets. He was owned by on older lady who became disabled and for the past couple of years he has not been able to go outside so he would need to be retrained in housebreaking as a result. She wanted to do what was best for him and the other dogs she has given up for adoption. He would be fine in a house where he is the only dog or with other dogs his size but a larger dog might hurt him due to his size. He should not be where there are small children under 10 years of age for his safety. He has had a dental cleaning where several teeth were removed but he is fine eating solid dry kibble and this is recommended.

SECURE FENCING REQUIRED FOR ALL OF OUR RESCUED DOGS.

For more information email starshalodogs@yahoo.com.

If you are considering adopting a dog through HALO Here are some helpful hints:

Bring pictures of your yard to show secure fencing. Most of our dogs require a 6 foot fenced yard. Yards must be cleared of any fox tail weeds.

We do adopt small dogs to apartments or condo and need to see pictures of the patio or balcony area. If you rent, please bring copy of your lease to show you can have pets and any size restrictions.

We do not adopt to homes with children under the age of five unless we know the history of the dog with young children. All Children MUST be present at adoption.

If you own a dog and are looking for a friend please bring your dog with you so they can be introduced.

About East Contra Costa County Homeless Animals' Lifeline Organization (H.A.L.O.)

About Our Rescue Group...

H.A.L.O. is the East Contra Costa County Homeless Animals' Lifeline Organization, better known as H.A.L.O. We are a nonprofit, all volunteer, 501c(3) charitable organization who assists dogs, cats and their owners in Eastern Contra Costa County.
We rescue approximatly 500 animals a year, all by volunteers, all in our homes and in our hearts.
We are not a shelter,
We have grant funds for the spaying and neutering of East County ferals and food for them if needed.
We have a program called "Angel Ears" where certified dogs and their trainers go to the local libraries and the children read to the dogs. This has proven a very effective way to increase reading skills rapidly. We also take the dogs to senior facilities.
We are in need of volunteer in many capacities.
