Meet Veronica, a 5 year old Pug/Doxie Mix who's in reality a DNA Test waiting to happen. She's a sturdy 14 lbs and  loves to chase a ball as long as you're willing to throw it.
Veronica was not treated well by the children in her former home and does have trust issues. She takes a few days to warm up to new people. And responds very positively to treats. Her current foster mom has been working with her and a trainer and are hoping to turn that around soon.
Whoever is lucky enough to adopt Veronica will need to give her a little space for her to learn you are not going to hurt her. Once she has had her few days to get comfortable, she is a great companion and loves to keep you company while watching TV or getting some exercise.  She is snuggly and gentle and loving. She gets along with other dogs, but would be fine as the only dog. Veronica is crate trained , house trained, and likes to ride in the car. We are working with her on the leash as she does enjoy to go for walks. Veronica LOVES trips to the beach and chasing tennis balls!  Veronica can't wait to find her FURever family and get a second chance at finding a new family to love! 
Because of her history with small kids, we recommend  a quiet, adult only home. Veronica is spayed, current on her shots and microchipped. Her adoption fee is $250

All of our dogs are in private volunteer foster homes, and as such these individuals are most qualified to answer any questions regarding the dog.

We do not have a central shelter or kennel locations - you must make a private one-on-one meet and greet appointment with each individual dog at the foster family's convenience.  To protect our foster families' privacy, we must have an APPROVED adoption application on file before we release their contact information.

All of our dogs are fixed (spayed/neutered) and up to date on shots. We have a 2 week foster-to-adopt period to make sure the dog is a fit for your family. Adoption fees vary from dog-to-dog.  

Please note that an approved application DOES NOT guarantee that the dog will be placed with you. The final decision rests with our fosters as they know the dogs the best, and please be aware that there may be other applicants interested in the same dog. We continue accepting applications on a dog until the dog is with the new adoptive family in their home.

Thank you for visiting our dogs located at

About Second Chance Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Second Chance Dog Rescue was formed to fulfill a desperate need in the community to Rescue, Rehabilitate & Re-home homeless dogs from the over-crowded local shelters, and from families who can no longer take care of their dogs (on a case-by-case basis only).

Our program is based on foster care, and all rescued dogs spend their first days at a loving foster home where they receive personalized care. As part of our program, we ensure that all dogs are vaccinated, are spayed or neutered, and have been socialized by their foster family. In addition, Second Chance Dog Rescue provides support for potential new owners and monitors progress for both new pet parents and their adopted dogs. This helps guarantee that our dogs go to good, loving, forever homes.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Visit our website at for a list of upcoming Adoption Events. Additionally, our foster parents may schedule one on one meetings with potential owners and provide a personalized adoption experience.

Our Adoption Process...

We require an Adoption Questionnaire to be completed - whether online or in person - before meeting any of our dogs. Upon approval of the Questionnaire, a potential adopter will be required to complete an Adoption Contract and pay adoption fees. All of our adoptions start with the first 2 weeks as a 'trial' period, to ensure the adoption is a good fit. Adoption of a puppy may require a refundable training deposit, which will be refunded upon completion of training with a Certfied dog trainer, and submission of certificate of completion to our office.
