My story

The application is the first step in the adoption process, so if you are interested in adopting please fill out the online adoption application  first by visiting our website at



Sammy is an 10 year old Dachshund mix. Sammy weighs about 15 pounds. Sammy was turned into a scary overcrowded shelter when his person died. Sammy is super sweet, always happy and always smiling. He is happy to greet everyone with a tail wag and a gentle nudge to remind you he would like a pet. Sammy loves to go for car rides and talk walks. Sammy can be possessive of his persons attention and doesn’t like to share attention with other dogs.  He would do good as an only dog or with an owner who knows how to handle this attitude. Sammy lives with several foster siblings and they get along just fine, he just needs a owner who knows how to set boundaries. He enjoys running around outside playing with his foster siblings, and then come in the doggie door to take a nap on his fluffy dog bed. Sammy is a good boy that does not understand why he lost his home. He does adjust so quickly to new situations but can have a grumpy attitude at first. Sammy is ready for his new family to find him. 

Sammy qualifies for a senior adoption. This means that a senior mom or dad can adopt him, as long as they have a co-signer willing to sign on the adoption contract that is anything happens, they will take care of him or return him to the rescue. Senior adoption is at no charge to the adopter. 

Sammy’s adoption fee: $100 

We do not have a kennel or facility to visit, all dogs are kept in foster homes until their forever homes are found.
Adoption Process: Once an approved application
 is on file, we will then set up a home visit. At that time we will bring the dog to the home in which you will all be sharing. We ask the entire family to be there that day. If we all agree on the placement, then the dog will stay with you that day.
