Udon is a sweet, smart and tender little guy. He weighs 15 pounds and is around 4 years old. He is very quiet, rarely barks, and is a bit shy at first. He is house trained and I would categorize him as a medium/low energy dog. He would do great in a mellow household. Once he’s had a good 30-45 minute morning walk he’s happy to curl up next to you or find a little pocket of sunshine to sunbath in and nap.
He does great in the car and has done wonderfully on 2.5-6 mile hikes. He also loves the beach, Crissy fields is his favorite! He is treat motivated and knows sit, shake, and come. He gets a bit distracted with things to sniff when we’ve tried playing fetch at the park. If he gets a little restless midday a 10-15 minute game of fetch with his plush toys indoors is enough to get him to settle down.
Udon has had a hard life as a stray dog the first 3 years of his life. He was found in Visalia, skinny and very nervous around people and other dogs. He’s smart and very tender in disposition. In the 6 months that I’ve had him he has been to a dog park or dog friendly beach everyday (sometimes twice a day) and has come a long way with his nervousness. I would love for him to find a loving home where he can keep his owner(s) company and continue to open up. My mothers health has started to decline and my work load has started to increase significantly recently. I’m shifting my schedule to be more available to help take care of my mom. Unfortunately this means I will not have enough time to take care of Udon to the degree that he needs and deserves. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions and would like to set up a time to meet this little guy.

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.
