Kane (pronounced KAH-NEH) is an incredibly cuddly, energetic, and loveable pup. He is about 65-70lbs and is neutered. He has a history of yeast infections in both his ears that you have to be on the lookout for to make sure it doesnʻt come back. We did a DNA test and found out that he is 50% pitbull terrier, 29% Staffordshire terrier, 11% Chinese sharpei, and 10% supermutt. The test also revealed that he is a little over 2 years old and we’ve been fostering him in Oakland for about 3 months. He was born in Stockton and has gone through a few homes so he is looking for a forever home. His first household seemed to not train him much, but he has already learned the basics of sit, (lie) down, paw, leave it, stay, heel, and let go in the short time he’s been with us. He needs some luring as he has yet to master them. He is also fully crate trained and does well in there for a long time if you give him toys when you have to leave him alone for a few hours. His favorite thing to do is play fetch and pull out strings from rope toys. He is the type to do best in a one-dog household but is currently going through training to curb his aggression towards other dogs and is showing steady improvement. We desperately want to keep him but it seems that two dogs are too much for his foster mommy’s allergies to handle since he sheds a surprising amount. He needs an owner who is willing to patiently work with him on training while giving him lots of cuddles and playtime to expend his energy every day. He is a sweet boy who will show you lots of unconditional love.

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.
