Adoption Fees Explained

 

Discretion may be used by the board in regard to special needs dogs/bonded pairs and adoption fees.

 

Sophia's Grace Foundation is a dachshund rescue that takes in healthy dogs, as well as dogs that may have been abused or medically neglected for a long time, or have illnesses or disabilities.   When a dog comes into our organization, we will have them vetted in accordance with our list below.  Once you adopt the dog, we cannot guarantee the health of the dog past what our vets have diagnosed or treated.  We ask that when you adopt from us, you also partner with us, to love and care for the dog, even if  health issues may arise down the road. 

 

Your adoption fee may include: 

1. Health Check Up by one of our Veterinarians

2. Spay or Neuter

3. Vaccinations (DH2PP, also known as Distemper/Parvovirus/Parainfluenza, and Rabies ONLY) 

4. Blood Parasite Panel (Heartworm and Lyme's Disease)

5. Microchip

6. Dentals, only if absolutely needed for the health of the dog and usually only for older dogs

7. De-wormed, if not already de-wormed prior to coming to SGF

8. Any other condition will be treated if they came to SGF with the diagnosis and it was deemed medically necessary to treat.  

 

We will fully disclose all health issues with new adopters so that they are completely aware of anything we have treated the dog for or were made aware of ourselves.  Obviously, with dogs, as well as humans, medical issues can arise at any time.  Due to this fact, if one arises after the adoption is complete, this will be the sole responsibility of the adopter.  Thank you for assisting us in helping to save and love these little ones forever! 

AVAILABLE DOGS

Jerry

Anybody need help hearing?

Need company during the quarantine?

 

How about JERRY!!  

 

He’s got big ears, the better to hear you with or hear FOR you!

 

He’ll alert you to approaching cars, mail carriers, blowing leaves and whatever else might sneak up on you. He may even get you better TV reception  

 

He’s 5 years old so he sleeps all night. He’s modest and wears underwear. He has his own wheels so he won’t ask for the car keys. Jerry is not fond of men so a home with just a mom would be best. And no apartments as he is very vocal!

 

If you’d like to learn more about this hunk you can email his Foster Mom Phlmt@me.com   To fill out an adoption application click on the link below https://www.sophiasgracefoundation.org/  

 

Oh. He likes fries!! 

Louis & Lillie

Meet Louis and Lillie!  They are a bonded pair of senior dachshunds and must be adopted together. They are both estimated to be 10 – 12 years old and act younger than their pretty frosty faces suggest.  They are not housetrained so someone will need patience and persistence to train them. They are both good with other dogs, unknown around cats and should not be in a household with young children.

Lillie is a red, smooth coat with a very sweet and social temperament.  She would love to lay on your lap and watch Netflix all evening.  Louie is a black and tan smooth coat.  He gets anxious around new people and will nip unless there is a slow introduction.  Once he is comfortable around you, he is also very sweet and loving.  They  would do best in a quiet household without a lot of people coming and going.

Can you offer a home to that will make their golden years their best years? Currently fostered in Ashland, OH.   

Trixie

Meet Trixie! She is a mixed breed Min Pin/Chihuahua Mix.  She is approximately 6 years old and approximately 25 pounds.  She is housetrained, great on a leash and knows a few basic commands.  She does sit up on her own, though and its SUPER CUTE!

She is a sweet and loyal girl and is very chill, but she does need patience.  She takes a while to warm up to new people.  

 

She was adopted in May of 2020 to a family with two other small dogs. She has a great time playing with one of them, but she is aggressive with the smaller one.  It has come to the point that she can no longer live with this smaller dog and heartbreakingly, needs to be rehomed.  

 

An ideal home for her would be a low stress environment with no other dogs or small children.  

When she was first adopted, she was fearful and that translated into aggression.  Once she learned to trust her adopters, she became sweet and loving.  It took about three months.  Now she can’t get enough of them!  She sleeps in their bed (and is a wonderful sleeper!) and wants to be near her people wherever they are!  I believe the hostility towards the other dog is a result of jealousy. 

 

She is fearful of strangers and small children seem to stress her.  She will bark but will not go after adults.  If guests ignore her, she will ignore them!  When small children run around, she does bark aggressively at them.  She has not bitten a child, but I think she needs to be trained in how to react to them.  

 

Her ideal home would be someone with experience with fearful dogs and loads of patience!!  She is a gem in the rough and deserves someone to give her the time to shine!  She will totally make it worth your while! 

 

Trixie is currently in Kintersville, PA, in Bucks County, however, we can help with transport to her perfect new home! Applications may be submitted at www.sophiasgracefoundation.org

Chloe

Meet Chloe!

 

She is a 9-year-old dachshund weighing in at 16 pounds, although she could definitely stand to lose a few – she loves walking, so hopefully whomever adopts her can get her on a fitness routine! Chloe is not a super affectionate and loving girl, but she can be on occasion, just depends on her mood. She also had to have her tail amputated when she was younger, and it is adorable when she wags her little nub! She is currently living with other dogs, but literally wants nothing to do with them, so a home with no other dogs would be just fine. She seems to prefer women, so her ideal home would be with a single woman who is home much of the time and either has a fenced yard for her to run around in or is committed to taking her on daily walks. She is also not fond of small children, so a kid-free home is a must.

 

Currently located in Dover, OH, in Tuscarawas County. Applications may be submitted at www.sophiasgracefoundation.org.

Rufus

You’d never know that super senior Rufus is 11 years old—he looks and acts like a dog still in his prime!

 

He’s a handsome standard dachshund with lots of curiosity looking for a forever home to live out his golden years. 

 

Rufus is a one-person kind of guy and would do well in a home with someone who is experienced in training. He responds well to clear boundaries and commands from someone with a strong/“alpha” presence. He’s very curious—he will follow you around to see what you’re up to and will get up to check out sounds (he has amazing hearing!) but is also content to curl up in his bed at your feet for a nap most of the time. He would enjoy a home with a yard that he can safely explore. He’s very eager to receive affection and can get a little jealous, so he’d likely do best if he’s the only pet in the home, though he does not show aggression towards other dogs or cats.

 

He can be a little grumpy about his personal space and belongings—he’s reactive to being asked/pushed/pulled off of furniture or having things taken away from him. He likely has a history of being fed people food which has led to him begging and demanding when his humans eat. An environment with clear boundaries and mutual respect is essential to keeping these behaviors in check. Rufus is house-trained, neutered, and microchipped.  He is anxious to be a loyal, sweet companion to the right owner who is willing to put time and patience into helping him feel secure, safe and confident. 

 

Rufus is fostered in Hamilton, VA.

Sweetie

Meet Sweetie!

 

This gorgeous girl is approximately 2-3 years old and was rescued from death row at ACCT in Philadelphia and is now looking for a family to call her own.  

 

Sweetie is a bit timid and needs a lot of reassurance, so she will need a patient adopter willing to work with her and help her continue to build her confidence.  Once she knows and trusts you, she melts into you. She does great with all the dogs in her foster home, both big and small and has a super sweet and docile demeanor when it comes to children. She does get some anxiety in her crate foster mom leaves her in, but is not destructive.  She picks up training commands and would benefit from continue training.  

 

Sweetie needs someone active and patient enough to guide her along to learn just how to be a dog and to know it is all going to be okay.

 

Sweetie is currently fostering in Downingtown, PA in Chester County.
