Meet our dear little Pelchie. Pelchie is a 6 year old, 14 lb Chihuahua- doxie mix. Don’t you just love those big ears and soft brown eyes?   He likes to play with his foster siblings, but prefers the girls to the boys. He loves toys and especially likes his squeaky toys. He will fling them around and go chase the toys on his own.  He is very lovable, rolls over for a tummy rub, and is also a good little watch dog. He can be protective of the home, so his new family should carefully introduce him to new people coming over and should use caution around children. Pelchie prefers women, but will also warm up to men. Pelchie is not good with cats & should go to an adult only home. He is house trained, but his owner needs to be diligent with his potty breaks. 

Pelchie had a prior injury that at one point caused him some pain and lameness in his back legs.  He does not require any further treatment and does get around just fine now. He does not like being lifted and will have some stiffness and arthritis in his hind area which can be maintained with over the counter supplements. Pelchie just had full check up and dental cleaning and is ready for his FURever home!  Pelchie is neutered, microchipped and current on his vaccinations.  His adoption fee is $250 which helps Second Chance Dog Rescue cover spay/neuter costs, vaccinations, medical treatments, food and supplies.    ♥    

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.
