Do you love food and napping? Me too! I am a very sweet Dachshund / Terrier mix looking for a quiet home where I will be cherished. I am just 10 years young, and have been spayed. I am up to date on my shots. I weigh 19 pounds.

I can be adopted on my own, but why not double the devotion and offer my sister, Babs, a home along with me? We’re good friends and a perfectly matched set!

I am really good at offering quiet devotion to my owners. I may not be the most energetic dog, but I have a way of making my owners feel very special. I am a great companion, particularly if sedentary activities are your thing. I have been known to surprise my owners by chasing the odd squirrel, but mostly I am content to play with my stuffed animals, enjoy cheese snacks, and nap in a quiet, comfortable corner of the room.

I would be the perfect match for senior or disabled dog lovers with mobility issues. I am good with kids, so I would welcome visits from your grandchildren!

My owners are a young couple who recently began growing their family. With a 2 year old toddler, a baby on the way, and my Mom working long hours and travelling for work, it’s just not a very dog-friendly life. I would much prefer a quiet home with folks who have lots of time to spend with me. I’m getting a little older, and being around the noise and commotion of raising small children is not for me.

I have some minor health issues that are well controlled with medication. My owners are willing to help bear the costs of my treatment and provide all veterinary records. I have been lovingly raised and very well cared for.

If you are missing that special kind of devotion that only a sweet dog like me can provide, please offer me a loving home today. I can’t wait to meet you and charm my way into your heart and home.

Love and licks,

About Denver Find My Pet A Home

About Our Rescue Group...

In many locations throughout the USA and Canada, shelters and rescues are filled to capacity, leaving pet owners who can no longer care for their pet with nowhere to turn. Many pets are needlessly being euthanized.

Being placed in a shelter is a very stressful experience for all pets - and their owners. We offer a very good alternative, allowing pets to stay in the loving care of their owners while a new home is located for them.

We have helped many pet owners in need to place their pet in a home where they have great peace of mind in knowing that their pet is being cherished, well cared for and kept safe, happy and healthy.

Come Meet Our Pets...

In most instances, our pets stay with their owners until a new home can be located. There are some situations which require a more urgent placement, and in these instances, we look for loving foster homes to care for these pets until a permanent home can be located.

Pets available for adoption can be viewed on our website at

Our Adoption Process...

When a pet is placed with our organization, our staff create a very honest and compelling adoption story about the pet, using the information provided to us.

We then spread the word about this pet's need for a new home through a wide variety of online services, and through local outreach.

Interested parties are directed to fill out a formal request to meet a pet, providing in-depth information about themselves.

Before a potential adopter is introduced to a pet, we do careful reference screening and a criminal records check.

Should the pet's owner and the adoptive party agree to an adoption, a formal agreement is entered into, requiring the new owner to agree to keep in touch, ensure the pet's physical and emotional well-being, and provide a safe, happy and healthy home.

They are required to agree that they will not surrender the pet to a shelter or give away the pet - but rather they are to contact our organization so that we can find another suitable home, in the event that they are unable to fulfill their commitment.

The owners deliver the pet to the new owners, so that they can do a home inspection prior to leaving the pet in the new owner's care.

Our organization provides follow-up services, contacting the new owners after the first week, and then every 45 days for the first nine months post-adoption. This helps ensure the pet is being well cared for, and that the new owners have any support they need in adjusting to life with their new companion,
