I found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.


I am already spayed, purebred, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Ellie is approximately 8 to 9 years old and weighs about 8 or 9 lbs.

Ellie came to us from a Georgia public shelter where she was very skinny, scared and shaking. She has done a complete turn around! All she needed was love and some good food and she was back to her self.

Ellie is very calm and loves to be with her person wherever that may take her. Ellie LOVES LOVES LOVES to ride in the car and go with you. She will tolerate being left at home without any argument, but she would much rather go.

Ellie is calm and cool with strangers too. She Is not hyper when meeting new people, she just enjoys being with people. She has done well with all people, but has not been around very small children. Her personality does not concern us when considering her for a home with children. However since she is a smaller dog, she will only be considered for dog savvy children.

Ellie becomes very attached to her humans that care the best for her so plan to have a constant companion!

Ellie is fostered in Chattanooga, but a meet and greet in Atlanta can be arranged by appointment.

Please email for an adoption application (Microsoft Word format).

SOMAD is a private, all volunteer, foster-home based rescue group. Please be patient as we answer your inquiries; we do our best to answer emails within a day, however volume and regular life schedules sometimes delay us.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ellie-ADOPTION PENDING, a Atlanta Dachshund dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Dachshund for sale in Atlanta, or seeking a Dachshund dog from a breeder in Atlanta.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Atlanta already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Atlanta breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Dachshund breeders who help with Dachshund rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Atlanta paves the way for another one to be saved.
