Facts about Sniffy

  • Breed: Bloodhound
  • Color: Red/Golden/Orange/Chestnut
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Male
1-2 year old Sniffy is a wonderful bloodhound boy. He's not as large as some bloodhounds, so he's the perfect "pet size". Bloodhounds need fences - they cannot be trusted to return when called as their nose may overpower their obedience training sometimes. Bloodhounds do make loyal, funny, and entertaining companions. Update: Sniffy was sent to Bloodhound College with the Virginia Dept of Corrections. They found that Sniffy doesn't Sniff - he'd much rather be someones companion on the sofa. At this time, Sniffy is not available for adoption.
Update: October 2014: Literally, overnight our Sniffy became extremely ill. It was obvious that he was in tremendous pain, and within less than 12 hours became almost unable to walk, stopped eating, and was hypersensitive to all touch. Sniffy was rushed to our veterinarians where he fought for his life for 3 days. The tests confirmed an autoimmune disease - - not completely definited, but appears to be a form of immune deficient polyarthritis. Sniffy's condition is currently under control - - but his veterinary bills total over $1,000. Donations are needed at this time. Please - he's only 3 1/2 years old - we just couldn't let him die.

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
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.
