Allie is extremely loyal, playful, and loving with human members of her pack. She is completely house trained, an excellent car traveler, and is not destructive when left alone for long periods of time. While I have been with Allie for five years, through the majority of college and two cross country moves, I no longer have the time and lifestyle to give her the attention she deserves. She loves to hike, run, and chase a ball and will be an incredible addition to an active, dog loving family with the resources to care for her.
While Allie is adaptable and extraordinarily trainable, she would benefit from a caregiver who is confident around animals and comfortable working with and training obedience from a large, strong dog. Allie has a history of resource guarding with other dogs and prefers to be the lone animal in her household. She also exhibits occasional reactivity toward human and canine strangers and is protective of her human companions. Allie is an instinctual guard dog (despite my best efforts) and strangers must be properly introduced when entering the home.

To expedite the adoption process, please complete the cat or dog adoption form and bring a printed copy with you to the SF SPCA Adoption Center (Hours & Location). This helps us better understand what sort of pet you’re looking for so we can guide you every step of the way! Please bring a valid photo ID and verification that you are allowed to have a pet where you currently live.
First, we’ll meet with you to find out more about you and your pet preferences and answer your questions. Our goal is to help you find the pet that best fits your lifestyle and living situation so we want to make sure you have a realistic understanding of the time and resources necessary to provide training, medical treatment, and proper care for your new pet. This can take time so please allow at least one hour for the adoption process.
Once we have a good understanding of your living situation and the type of pet you’re interested in, we’ll make introductions and let you spend some quality time getting to know each other to see if there’s a love connection. It’s important that all household members take part in this important decision so please make sure everyone is present (including any resident dogs if you’re considering adding a new pooch to your pack).
Once love happens, we’ll complete the paperwork, review all the SF SPCA adoption benefits, provide information on any known medical or behavioral issues, and share tips to make the transition a success for both you and your new pet.
We consider you and your new furry friend a part of the SF SPCA family so please reach out with questions ― and be sure to share your adoption stories and pet photos at sfspca.org/stories
Don’t forget to schedule your first free health exam at the SF SPCA Veterinary Hospital within three days of adopting.
