Hercules, a 1-year-old Boxer/Staffordshire Terrier mix, is looking for a new best friend. He first arrived in the San Diego Humane Society's care after he became sick and his owners couldn’t give him the care he needed. Now that he has fully recovered, he’s ready to join a new family that can make him the center of their world. He was a bit shy when he first arrived, but now that he feels more comfortable, he is a fun-loving, active pup!

Hercules quickly earned his name because of his silly “superhero” walk and his super-dog smarts! He has so much love to give that he wasn't sure what to do with it all, so his trainer has been teaching him many new tricks such as 'sit' and 'calm.' He’s come a long way, but he can't wait to find a new family who can continue his training and take him on fun runs and hikes to explore. He'd love to be your new best friend and accompany you on all of life's adventures!

Hercules is available for adoption at the San Diego Humane Society’s Escondido Campus at 3450 East Valley Parkway. To learn more about making him part of your family, please call (760) 888-2275 or visit
