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 had a back issue so now he “wobble walks”. He has a doggy wheelchair but isn’t really fond of it. Jerry takes a minute to warm up to people but is very loving once he does. He loves to lay in the sun and will require a fenced in yard and also a ramp if you have stairs. Please no apartments as he is very vocal!

 

Jerry is located in NE Ohio but he’s willing to relocate with his overnight bag.

 

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/

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.

Benji

Our man Benji has been working hard and now he is ready to find his new forever family. 

 

While he is small and extremely handsome, Benji will need an owner who is willing to put lots of time and training into earning his trust and learning his specific needs.

 

Benji is an approximately 3 year old Yorkie and weighs about 12 lb.  He is neutered, crate- and house-trained, and walks well on a leash but is a high energy dog.  In his short life, Benji has had some trauma that caused him to bite without provocation or warning and so he wound up in the shelter.  Our dedicated foster home has gotten Benji some surgery that was needed to solve a medical issue.  The pain he was in may have been at the root of Benji's biting.  But once a dog is a biter, the behavior can always resurface.  Through training we have learned to manage it.  Because of this Benji needs the following very specific traits in a new owner:

 

  • Adopter MUST be within an hour or two of Greer SC area.

  • New home must have no kids under 12.

  • New adoptive home can have dogs, but they must not be submissive dogs as Benji may bully them if they allow it.  NO PUPPIES!

  • Adopter MUST agree to training for Benji, and an initial session with our trainer and his foster will be included in his adoption.

  • Adopter must be active and willing to take Benji on walks and keep him engaged, as this will assist in him growing to trust and find his role in his new home.

 

It may be a big ask, but we KNOW the perfect person for Benji is out there!  And with a face as cute as this he is sure to catch the eye of the human meant to be his forever match!

 

Benji is being fostered in Greer SC.

Meet Luna!

 

Luna is a happy, energetic, and sweet girl. She gets along with dogs of all sizes and would love to have a friend that can meet her energy levels.  If you have a friend, a smaller dog OK as she is gentle as can be however, she would do great alone as Luna absolutely loves her humans. She has no idea of her size and will come climb on your lap and give you hugs and kisses!! 

 

Luna definitely is not aware of her strength so she should be supervised around smaller children, so she doesn’t accidentally knock them over or hit them with a paw while trying to get their attention.  She walks great on a leash and has good manners around other people, bikes, and animals that she meets.  She likes to run a bit too which helps her burn energy. She has mid-level energy that will require she gets playtime with toys or humas but settles in very well when told to lay down or if you let her lay with you. She takes treats very gently and is not food aggressive in any way. She patiently waits her turn while the rest of the pact gets their treats first. Luna is crate trained and house trained. 

 

Another great quality Luna possesses is good conversation skills. She has things to say and will make sure you know when it’s time to eat or play or time lay on your lap. She has an amazingly strong grumble that should not be confused for a growl. 

 

Luna will make a great addition to any home. She is gorgeous and funny and will make you laugh!! Currently fostering in Raritan, NJ. Applications may be submitted at www.sophiasgracefoundation.org

Luna

Rosie

Meet Rosie, or as foster mom likes to lovingly call her, Rosebud!

 

This darling little 4-year-old was rescued from a backyard breeder along with 3 other yorkies. Rosie had a deformed leg when she came into rescue and it had to be amputated, but she gets around just fine and has no trouble keeping up with all her 4-legged foster siblings!

 

Rosie is quite a loveable little girl, but also quite demanding and thinks that she should be the center of her human’s universe! She is also a very submissive little girl and will immediately roll over and submit her belly for rubs.

 

Foster mom has seen Rosie come out of her shell so much during the past few months, going from a shy little girl to a spunky little one who loves to explore the backyard and who is just so full of life. Like the other 3, Rosie is still working on her potty skills, so she will need a patient adopter willing to work with her and keep her on a schedule. She is also quite playful and would enjoy another playmate her size. 

 

Rosie is currently fostering in Howard, OH. If you think you might be able to provide her with the perfect forever home, please submit an adoption application at www.sophiasgracefoundation.org.

Molly

Meet Molly!

 

Molly came into rescue with 3 other yorkies from a puppy mill and all 4 were in pretty bad shape. Molly had terrible teeth and had to have an extensive dental, and she also had chronic conjunctivitis in her left eye, which resulted in its removal.

 

Molly is 7 years old and weighs a whopping 5.6 pounds and is a bit of a loner. She follows her sister Rosie around everywhere, so it would be nice if they could get adopted together. Otherwise, she should go to a home with another small dog her size, as they seem to give her added security.

 

She is a quirky little girl who begs to be in foster mom’s lap and then down once she gets there! We feel that due to her past neglect she is still uncertain about us humans. She wants contact and loves being close, but not sure she can trust that lap yet! She will get there with time and patience!

 

Like her siblings, Molly is still working on her potty-training skills, so she will need a patient adopter that is willing to work with her. She does love exploring out in the yard, but she chases cats, so best for her to go to a cat-free home!

 

Molly is currently fostering in Howard, OH. If interested in adopting her (and maybe her sister Rosie as well) please apply at www.sophiasgracefoundation.org

Gucci

Hello everypawdy, my name is Gucci and I’m a 12-year-old Yorkie and weigh about 10 lbs. 

 

A few weeks ago I was dropped off at the vets to be euthanized because my previous owner couldn’t afford my much needed dental. The vet clinic felt that I was able to be fixed up so they reached out to the rescue. They found a foster family and I was on the road to recovery. My mouth was so painful and infected they started me on a shot of antibiotics and in a few days, I had 13 teeth pulled and was neutered. I just got a much-needed spring haircut and hopefully look snazzy enough to find a furever home soon. I’m hard of hearing and if you want me to know that you are home wake me up gently and you’ll be greeted happily with a wiggle butt. 

 

I’m still working on some anxiety that I have mainly in the middle of the night.  I cannot seem to settle in and I walk around the bed a lot, sleep a little then I’m back up again. Let’s just say my foster mommy is tired from being woken up a lot.  I hope wherever I land that this is not a long-term issue.  Please understand that I lost the only family I knew and this is all foreign to me.  I’m potty trained and go outside any chance I get. One of my nicknames is “Weed-Whacker” because after I’m done doing my business, I kick grass everywhere, leaving my mark for all to see. I sure love a fenced in yard but it’s not necessary. I was an only dog in my previous home but have learned to enjoy being with my foster fur brothers & sisters.  I do get a little jealous when I’m not center of attention though.  Sometimes I have an issue with marking so if you do have other male dogs you want to make sure that I have a belly band on in the beginning. 

 

No need to crate me while you are away, I do very well out and about. You might want to be prepared that I make a mess when eating my meals.  A lot of the teeth I lost are the front ones so when trying to lap up the food it all ends up on the floor. Don’t worry, another nickname of mine is “Hoover”, and no food goes wasted. Unfortunately, with old age I have these things on my eyes called cataracts.  Don’t worry though it doesn’t seem to have hindered my sight as of yet. I have discovered that the kitchen is my favorite place to be because of all the treats and such I get for being a good boy. 

 

I’m currently hanging out in Seven Hills, OH.  Please reach out to my foster fam to come meet me, I think I’m a great catch. kathrineamlac@gmail.com
