Facts about Ellie

  • Breed: Dachshund/Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) Mix
  • Color: Black
  • Age: Puppy
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Female
My name is Ellie and I am a super cute little chiweenie mix. I was found wandering around Victory Park in Stockton with my sister Lucy. We were trying to follow people home. a Good Samaritan picked us up and took us to the vet. We have a minor skin issue that is being treated. It made all our hair fall out, but it's starting to grow back real fast now! I can't wait because it's embarrassing walking around "naked"! We are super sweet cuddle bug girls that would love to find a forever home. It would be even better if we got adopted together!! We are dog friendly and we'd probably be fine with cats too. We love to run around the yard and play with our toys. We are crate and potty pad trained when our foster mama is gone, but we go outside too. We are estimated to be about 6 months old and we're almost ready to get adopted, our hair just needs to grow in!

About Hoofs, Paws and Claws Haven

About Our Rescue Group...

Hoofs Paws and Claws Haven (HPCH) is an all volunteer, non-profit organization dedicated to helping animals in our surrounding community. We rescue a variety of animals, and actively search for their forever homes. This is provided we have a foster home available. We take in dogs from local shelters and also strays. We also provide a safe "haven" for any animal who may not be adoptable.

HPCH is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation, our tax ID # is 47-3887603. Your donations are fully tax deductible and fund our operations and help pay our vet expenses.

HPCH is dedicated to reducing the number of homeless pets through the spaying/neutering of all our rescued dogs. We provide information on low cost or no cost spay/neuter clinics in our surrounding areas.

Each dog that comes to us has been updated on shots, spayed/neutered and microchipped. Many of our dogs have also been treated for various medical conditions including mange, heart worms, broken bones, neurological issues, etc. One of our dogs can take anywhere from one month to one year to get ready for adoption and the cost for the dogs we take on can range from $150 to several thousand dollars. We take on dogs from shelters that are set to be euthanized for various reasons, including simply that they've been there too long, or they have a medical condition that precludes them from adoption to the public, making them "rescue only." This means only a rescue can pull them from the shelter, but also leaves us to be responsible for any costs for things that the dog requires.

We also take on strays and incur the cost of having them vaccinated, spayed, neutered and microchipped. We take on owner surrenders, dogs who owners can no longer provide care. We insure a safe house for all of the dogs that we take on and provide all needed supplies for the foster homes that care for them until they are to be adopted. We also insure that they never end up in a shelter.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our adoptable dogs live in foster homes and meet and greets are done by appointment only.

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption process requires an adoption application, a phone screening, meet and greet with animal, a home check and an Adoption Contract and fee.

All of our dogs will be spayed/neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped prior to being adopted. Our adoption fees are considered to be donations. All donations from adoption go right back into our rescue account, allowing us to continue to help dogs in need. At the bare minimum, the cost to properly vet a dog is $100-150. But some of the dogs we take on are medical or behavioral cases, which can cost several thousand dollars. Because of this, we ask the following adoption fees:
$350 for puppies, which are any dogs under a year old
$150-250 for any adult dog ages over the age of 1
