Luna is a sweet, well-trained dog who loves to have a job. She would love an active owner who can take her on walks, runs, bike rides, and hikes. Luna is very athletic and in addition to enjoying physical activity she has also shown a drive for scent work using treats hidden in a toy as well as using essential oils on a q-tip. She knows several commands including sit, stay, down, come, place, shake, beg, high-five. She is also crate trained, house trained, great on leash (and will wear a weighted backpack for extra work), muzzle trained, and treadmill trained. She is happy to show her agility on walks/hikes by jumping up on bleachers in a park, climbing up a rock, or balancing on a log. Luna absolutely loves swimming, but I recommend keeping her on a long line leash to keep her in a specific area or else she’ll swim across an entire lake.
Areas to work on: Luna is being re-homed due to conflict in the home with another dog. Also because of her owner’s unpredictable travel/deployment cycle in the military she isn’t getting the attention that she deserves. Luna is shy around new people and is looking for a calm home environment and to be the only pet and in a household with no kids. She has a high prey drive (squirrels, ducks, geese) and will need an owner who can manage her behavior around them. Lure training has been a fun and effective way to work on her impulse control while providing an outlet to honor her instincts. Luna is a great dog who needs a safe home with an active owner who wants an incredibly fun companion.

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.
