Facts about Sniffy

  • Breed: Bloodhound
  • Color: Red/Golden/Orange/Chestnut
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Male
5 - 6 year old Sniffy has been with us since he was about 6 months old. Sniffy was recruited by the Virginia State Police for their mantrailing program - - - but flunked out the first week. Sniffy would much prefer to sniff his bed than any trail offered to him. Sniffy is totally crate trained, gets along great with all the other dogs here, but like many bloodhounds can be a little possessive of his food bowl. With Sniffy - it's really not a big deal - - - - - and he's very cooperative when corrected. Sniffy does seem prone to developing benign growths, and has just had 3 removed and is doing extremely well. He'd make a great lifelong companion for some lucky person - if just given half a chance. Like all bloodhounds, Sniffy needs a completely fenced yard and would benefit from some basic obedience training with someone new to make the bonding process complete. If you would like to offer Sniffy a forever home, please submit an application which you can find on our website (www.almostheaven-golden-retriever-rescue.org). Many of your questions regarding fees and our adoption process will be answered on the cover page. Emailing will get the fastest response.

About Almost Heaven Golden Retriever Rescue and Sanctuary, Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

Thank you for inquiring about our Dogs available for adoption. Almost Heaven is an all-volunteer, 501(c)(3) (non-profit) organization, active on the East Coast of the U.S. Our goal is to find “forever homes” for orphaned Dogs of all breeds, genders, and ages. We specialize in rehoming Senior and Special Needs Dogs. We also provide hospice and sanctuary for those who enter our program and do not find their forever home. Though it is our goal to help as many dogs as absolutely possible, we remain true to our roots, and no purebred Golden Retriever is ever turned away from our program.
All dogs adopted from Almost Heaven are spayed or neutered. All dogs are current on vaccinations, have had fecal and heartworm, lymes, and Ehrlichia test and are on heartworm preventative. We request a minimum donation at the time of adoption to help offset our expenses, which currently average in excess of $300 for each dog we rescue. Our adoption fees range between $200-$400, depending on the dogs age and breed. As we frequently do not actually know a dogs ancestry or age, we make our best estimate of both, usually with the help of our veterinarian.

Our Adoption Process...

Please complete our adoption application so we can get to know you, your family and your lifestyle. The application must be completed in full to be evaluated properly. Incomplete applications will not be considered. We may require a home visit, and we do check references. (We will accept letters of approval from other reputable Rescue Groups.) The information you give us on your application will be helpful in determining the compatibility of the dog you have requested (or desire) with your life-style. Some dogs require specific circumstances and the needs of each individual dog are evaluated. A fence may be required for more active dogs or dogs who have had little or no obedience training or a tendency to roam. These dogs may need a safe, enclosed area for proper exercise and safe release of energy. Please understand that we have an ever changing population of dogs that are looking for homes. Dogs are placed with the home that best meets the dog's needs, NOT on a "first come, first served" basis. Your application may be mailed or for faster response - emailed to ahgrr@frontiernet.net.
Due to some very unfortunate circumstances in the past – we will no longer routinely adopt to families with children under age 8 years – or those families with regular visitors to their home under 6 years of age. We may make a special exception to this policy for an experienced, responsible adopter or adopting family.
