Grasshopper is looking for a new best friend. He has made so much progress since he first came into the care of the Humane Society back in August as a stray. Initially terrified, he would try to hide and get himself as far away from people as possible. It took some time, and lots of TLC, but soon he was making great strides toward trusting the humans around him. Today, this sweet boy is melting the hearts of volunteers and staff alike, with his sweet nature and eagerness to please. Grasshopper is very playful and got his name from his ability to jump really high - we think he’d make a fabulous Frisbee partner! He’s also incredibly smart and eager to please, which makes training easy and fun. One of his most lovable characteristics, according to his caregivers, is that he likes to gently lick your face while you scratch his chest. Grasshopper is such a loving dog, and can’t wait to find a new best friend to snuggle up with!

Grasshopper is available for adoption at San Diego Humane Society’s Oceanside Campus at 2905 San Luis Rey Road. To learn more about making him part of your family, please call (760) 757-4357 or visit
