Facts about Gwen

  • Breed: Chihuahua/Miniature Pinscher Mix

  • ID#: 9558719

Gwen is a small/medium sized (about 25 lbs.) mixed breed dog - possibly some mini pin or chihuahua with those ears?? She is young - maybe 2 to 3 years old. She is very smart, friendly and affectionate. She gets along with numerous other small and large dogs in her foster home, although she can be a little defensive of her food bowl. She doesn't seem interested (one way or the other) in cats at our ado ption events but she was returned by a previous foster-to-adopter because she wanted to chase their cat. Gwen has been with her foster for a very long time - about six months. While that may not seem like a long time to you, it is a long time for a dog who is waiting on her forever family! She is very "talkative" at adoption events - calling out to her foster mom when she sees her, but that behavior only plays out at home when her foster mom comes home after being a away all day. Otherwise, she is very quiet - doesn't bark much at all! Gwen typically attends adoption events at the South Lebanon Petsmart on the First and Third Saturday of each month, but if you are interested in meeting her, please complete an application online at

About Sweet Dream House Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Sweet Dream House Rescue, Inc. is a non-profit, no kill, all volunteer, all breed animal rescue. Our shelter is staffed and run entirely by volunteers. We also utilize a network of foster homes for pets ready for adoption.

Our mission is to rescue homeless and abandoned animals, to spay/neuter, vaccinate and provide any needed medical care until they are adopted into loving homes. We are often the rescue of last resort, waiting until other rescues select from the euthanasia lists to rescue those that are not selected.

Our Adoption Process...

We have two ways to adopt a dog:

1) Foster to adopt. You are permitted to take the dog home for a trial visit of up to one week at your home (longer if necessary is also possible). This will help you determine if you and the dog are the right match. If yes, then the following weekend you can finalize the adoption at the Newport or Tri County Petsmart. If no, then you return the dog to us at Newport or Tri County Petsmart and you are welcome to try a different dog. You will need to complete the necessary paperwork and pay a $40 fee (cash,check, or credit card). This fee is non-refundable, and will be applied to the adoption fee if you decide to finalize the adoption.

2) Outright Adoption. If you're sure you've found the right dog, you complete the necessary paperwork, pay the adoption fee in full (cash, check, or credit card only) and take the dog home. You receive all the dogs health records that we have available to us.

Our adoption fee is $200 for most dogs, $225 for puppies. Fee INCLUDES: the dog's spay/neuter surgery, parvo/distemper shots and rabies shots (for dogs over 6 months), deworming, microchipping, flea and tick protection, heartworm testing (for dogs over 6 months), and monthly heartworm protection until the dog gets adopted.
