Ernie is a sweet male Lhasa Apso/mix born 3/8/14 and weighs 19 lbs. He is very loving with you and wants to be near you most of the time. The one thing about him is he is territory, if he’s in his crate or bed he doesn’t want you or another dog to bother him. If you need him to get out of the crate or his bed and he doesn’t come, then show him a leash and he will come right out without any problems. Ernie really loves going for walks and walks right next to you. He enjoys his treats and especially his cow hoove. He rides very well in the car and just looks around. He tolerates the other dogs but he would prefer to be the only dog. Ernie loves it when you scratch his bottom and head while he is lying next to you on the couch or in the bed. Ernie is very quiet and the only time that he has barked is when someone has come to the door. Ernie is a little shy around children but we are hoping that will change within time. He is housetrained and will go outside to do him business and he holds it throughout the night. We don’t know his history since he came from the shelter, but he is deserving to have someone with patients to work with him and give him the love that he deserves.

SECURE FENCING REQUIRED FOR ALL OF OUR RESCUED DOGS.

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

We only adopt our dogs out to Contra Costa County residence only so that we may follow up on their well-being to make sure that they are happy and thriving.

Please bring pictures of your yard showing your fencing and yard and bring any other dogs that you have to be introduced to make sure that they get along. Most of our dogs require a 6 foot fenced yard. Yards must be cleared of any fox tail weeds. The adoption donation is cash or check.

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.

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.
