Nigel is a wonderful 19 lb. Poodle born 6/17/13. We rescued him from the shelter and this poor guy was so scared. He now is wagging his tail and allowing us to pet him and he will put his head in our lap for more love. Nigel is now going into his kennel at night with some coaching but we are sure that he would love going to bed with you or near you. He loves exploring and playing in the yard, but of course not for long periods at a time; we wouldn’t want him to get sunburned. He gets along for the most part with the other dogs but we feel that he would do better being the only dog. He is very protective over his food and his foster parent; he doesn’t want to share with the other dogs. He enjoys playing with his stuffed toys and being near you. Nigel really loves going for walks with you and does fine in the car. Nigel would do best in a home without children or other dogs. He really wants a loving home where he can get all of the attention and love and he will give you much more back. You would have to go slow with him until he feels that he is safe and loved by you, which would only take a few days.

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. The adoption donation is cash or check.
We will adopt out to Contra Costa County residences only so that we may follow up on the dogs well-being to make sure that they are happy and thriving.
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 (5) 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 that they can be introduced to make sure that they will get along.
