  • Age: Senior
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less

Hi everyone, my name is Cleo. I am a 9 lb, 12 year old female dachsund/papillon cross who is sadly losing the only home I have ever known. You see my owner is busy with work and other activities and finds she just hasn't got the time to devote to me anymore. I am alone most of the day and have become a burden to her. Rather than take me to the SPCA she asked Home At Last if they would take me in. Thankfully I am in a foster home now so am getting lots of love and attention there. But I have one more move to make before I am finally in my last -and best- home.
Even at 12 I am an active girl and love going for walks. I like meeting other dogs but won't usually play with them until I get to know them well. I can be a bit nervous when approached by big dogs (I am pretty small after all) and may prefer to give them a wide berth. I could happily live with another small dog or a cat as I am very respectful of both.
My favorite thing is people, including kids, and I am very loving and cuddly with my family. I am also outgoing and affectionate when meeting strangers. Perhaps because I have spent so much time alone I would prefer a home where I will have human company most of the time. I am not destructive when left alone but I will bark and cry as if my heart is breaking. I have never lived with another pet so perhaps having a canine or feline companion will help me feel less anxious when alone. A home with a retired person or couple or with someone who works from home or can take me to work with them would be ideal for me.
I am a senior but except for some cataracts in my eyes I am a healthy girl. I am house trained, spayed and tattooed. My previous owner has never gotten me vaccinated, not once, so Home At Last will consult with their vet about having that done before I am adopted. My adoption fee is $150.

About Home at Last Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Home at Last Dog Rescue is a small group of volunteer animal lovers whose goal is to help homeless, neglected and abused dogs find caring and responsible homes.

Our volunteers are dedicated individuals who have joined together to form a new rescue group. We are commited to helping dogs in need and to provide them a second chance at a happy life.

Our dogs are not kept in a shelter. We depend on the support of caring and compassionate people to care for our dogs until we can find them permanent, loving homes. We provide vet care and rehabilitation to all of our dogs.

Our Adoption Process...

If you are interested in adopting a rescue dog, the first step is to search through the list of our dogs currently available for adoption. All dogs remain on Adoptapet and our website ( until an adoption is finalized so all dogs listed may be applied for.

Our job is to find the right home for each of our dogs. We will contact you to arrange for a home check at your convenience. Unfortunately, many of our applications are rejected, not necessarily because there is anything wrong with the home, but because it is not the right match for the dog. Following a successful home visit, we will arrange for you to meet the dog, usually in their foster home. At that time, you will decide if you would like to adopt the dog.

Before an adoption can be finalized, we will ask you to sign an adoption contract. Depending on the dog’s personality you may be asked to visit the dog once or twice before taking him or her home. This will be most common with shy, timid dogs. Outgoing and confident dogs can most often be taken home after the first meeting. Documentation for each dog will be provided upon adoption. Adopters must be ready to pick up their adopted dog home as soon as they have been approved and have agreed to adopt the dog. Home At Last Dog Rescue BC cannot hold dogs for people who have applied but are not yet ready to accept the dog into their home.

Please note: an adoption fee is required for successful applications. The adoption fee is non-refundable, even if the dog is subsequently returned. Home At Last Dog Rescue BC will always take back one of our dogs for any reason, and without question. Adoption fees for our dogs vary. The price varies based on the age and medical needs of the dog being adopted; costs are judged on a case by case basis.
