This dog has been spayed/neutered, is up to date on shots, on heartworm preventative and is microchipped.
 
This sweet, handsome lad is Springer Solis!
Springer appears to be an Italian Greyhound/Labrador Retriever mix about 2 years old. He has the most beautiful shiny black coat with a white bib on his chest. His legs go on forever and end in pretty gray paws! Springer is a great size - the perfect travel companion!
 
Springer has been good with all other dogs he has met. Initially he chases most cats, and  he does love to chase squirrels and bunnies. With consistent management and reinforcement in his foster home, he has learned to live nicely with two dog-savvy cats. Anyone considering adopting Springer who has cats should be prepared for a transition period in which his interactions with the cats are closely managed for several weeks or months. While he can present a calm exterior, he can be a little slow to trust and feel comfortable in new situations and with new people. As such, he would likely do best in a quieter home without children, or only one or two children, 12 years old and older, and not too many new people coming and going. An adult family or individual who is active outside the home would be ideal, as he does enjoy long walks and hikes, and has quite a bit of stamina. Springer is house trained, walks nicely on a leash, and is crate trained. A fully fenced and secure yard would be great for him. With his higher stamina, several daily walks and opportunities to play off-leash in a secured, fenced dog park would be great for him. A tired dog is a good dog!
 
Dogs of all ages also benefit from mental stimulation – think puzzle toys and games - and this is especially true for Springer. We strongly recommend that all our dogs attend obedience classes because you get to learn commands together, and it offers an opportunity for confidence building and socialization for the dog, and it also helps to strengthen that ever-important bond between the dog and his human family. It’s lots of fun, too! Springer already knows sit, but he would love to learn some more stuff and going through the training process will help him and his new people bond. A well-mannered, obedient dog will be welcomed most anywhere you take him. Springer's good in the car, affectionate, playful, learning to play fetch, eager to please, smart, and even-tempered. He was quite shy when he first came into rescue but is now much better as day by day he gains more confidence.
 
Springer would love to share his furever with you if you've got the time and patience to help him blossom into the happy, confident doggie he's meant to be. Fill out an application today - Springer is waiting just for you!

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 http://sosarl.org/aa/

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.

All of our dogs are age appropriately vaccinated prior to adoption. All of our dogs have been spayed/neutered and tested/treated for common canine disease.
