Family Friendly Sweetheart Needs Forever Home
Slinky is a sweet and mellow guy. He does not fit the normal “hyper husky” stereotype. He has a laid back personality, but doesn’t turn down an opportunity to play and go for hikes and runs. We adopted Slinky from a shelter in Southern California after a friend had been fostering him. We don’t know much about his backstory except that he was left outside with his siblings and suffered from neglect. He is excellent with young children and has been living in the house with our two year old without issue. He’s good with all dogs that we’ve met so far and loves to play.
He’s a quick study and walks/runs off leash with us after just a few weeks of training. On leash, he gets a B, limited training to ignore squirrels etc. might be required. In the house, he’s respectful of boundaries that are set and sleeps on his own bed downstairs at night.
Unexpected changes to our work schedules require more frequent travel and time away from home, we want Slinky to thrive and we can’t give him the time he deserves right now. Slinky would be a great addition to almost any household.

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.
