San Diego approaches life with such enthusiasm and energy that she will be sure to excite you too! San Diego is a huge snuggle bug, but also loves to go on walks and sniff everything. She's thrilled to get outside to play fetch or just sniff around and run after squirrels. On her leash walks, she can react to other dogs she sees, but is good with small ones.

Inside, she will happily lay down and take a nap while you get work done or come lay down on the couch with you while you relax. She's really smart and eager to please so will eagerly perform "sit," "shake," "down," and would be happy to learn more! In foster care, she has become friendlier with cats, her reactivity to them decreasing. She is a house-trained girl who freely roams the house. She is always polite and does well napping when her fosters are away.

This loving senior is looking for a low-key forever home where she can get lots of love and sniff around a backyard! Given time to get acquainted with a cat, she could live happily with one. Come meet San Diego today!


INTERESTED IN FOSTERING?

We are currently closed to the public and are only open by appointment (foster or adopter), but we are still diligently working to place dogs in foster homes! You can inquire about fostering a specific dog by submitting an inquiry through the dog's individual profile on this website or by emailing [email protected] to get more information about how to be matched with a foster dog.

Please do not visit our shelters without talking with us first. To prevent community spread, we cannot have large crowds gathering in our shelters.

Say "Yes" for Sapphire this Giving Tuesday

Living as a stray, Sapphire was struck by a car. She was bleeding, writhing in pain from nerve damage and bruised ribs — and pregnant.
