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! 



Meet Caesar! Caesar is a sweet little 4 yr old Chiweenie, a dachshund and Chihuahua mix. He weighs approximately 13-1/2 pounds.

Caesar is neutered and up to date on vaccines, HW tested, and microchipped. He is one of the sweetest most laid back little dogs you could ever ask for. This beautiful boy is house trained and uses a doggie door. He likes nothing better than to snuggle up with you. He gets along great with dogs and cats. Children are unknown but with his sweet disposition, respectful children over 8 should be fine. The perfect home would be one that has someone home all the time as he has a little bit of separation anxiety. If you think Caesar would make a wonderful member to your family, then please go to our website and fill out an application to adopt this sweet boy.

Caesar can be adopted 2 hours from Canton, Ohio. Thank you for choosing to adopt. Please visit our website to fill out an application for Caesar.


Meet Rob! He is the sweetest 11-year-old pittie mix you will ever meet! He is looking for a forever home where he can curl up in a warm spot - preferably a couch or a comfy bed, and as close to his person as he can possibly get. Rob has not encountered a lot of love in his life so when he receives it, he reciprocates TEN-FOLD. He would lay right on top of you (I’m not sure he knows he is pushing 60+ lbs.) and lick you all day long if you will let him! We are still learning he is a bit big for that, but his foster mom sure doesn’t mind!
Rob’s favorite pastimes include: EATING - as he came to us severely underweight and very hungry (he especially loves carrots), SNUGGLING - he loves to nuzzle his nose right under your arms or in your neck, and WALKS with his person & foster sister. He gets along great with his foster sister pup & has had good reactions to other dogs he’s encountered - but these encounters have all been fairly limited as we have been focusing mainly on his health. He does not seem to be quite as fond of his cat foster brother Milo and has barked and chased him. His foster mom believes he would do best in a home with up to one other dog & one cat. We are unsure of how he would be around children at this time, but due to his size and that he is completely unaware of it. older children might be best.
Rob is incredibly house broken and crate trained, absolutely no accidents and listens well when asked to get in his crate (especially when there’s a treat involved!) Rob does have a tendency to bark when he’s excited- usually that includes when you are FINALLY home from work or at the door when he’s waiting for you to open it.
Rob is an older dog which means his activity level is a little lower than that of his young foster sister Mazie. His hips aren’t what they used to be - but that WILL NOT stop him from climbing up onto wherever his person is or enjoying a long walk around the neighborhood, although we are still working on manners when on a leash. He walks very well with a harness!
I couldn’t say enough good things about my time with Rob. He will make such a loyal and lovely addition to a family. Applications may be submitted on the ADOPT page here on our website.

Somehow this adorable 15lb scruffy boy found himself at the shelter, barely functioning. Sophias Grace scooped him up to find that this overall healthy boy was just brokenhearted. Time to make his heart whole again.


Meet Brady, an active Havanese mix that is definitely ready to find his furever humans. At 12 years young, Brady still loves to play with toys, especially if they squeak, LOVES to be outside and walks would be extra awesome. Just like most terriers, he can be a bit stubborn but listens quite well so I do believe he needs someone that is dog savvy. He has wonderful manners! Brady’s sight is limited but it certainly doesn’t stop him from anything. His eyes will need to be monitored for pressure just to be sure it doesn’t change. He loves love and has a cuddly side and certainly seems to enjoy the company of his foster dad a bit more than his foster mom. She’s ok but foster dad time is the best time. He does beautifully with cats and small dogs and would do better in an adult only home due to his limited vision.


If you think that Brady might be the perfect addition to your family, please fill out an adoption application here on our website!

Brady is being fostered in Urbana,OH and transport can be arranged within a reasonable distance.


Cecilia is an  8year old Chihuahua mix that was found as a stray. She is house-trained and overall a very quiet, independent girl – she will require a patient and loving owner to help her out of her shell.

She can be petted when she’s in the mood but otherwise best to leave her alone – especially when she’s in her bed. Most of the time she doesn’t seem like she wants to be bothered but WILL show a bit of excitement and tail wagging when we get up in the morning or come back from the store. She is preferring my husband but we think it’s because he’s been working from home these past few weeks so is around all the time. She’s even allowed him to pet her belly. We are unable to pick her up at this time. She co-exists really well with the 2 basset hounds and greyhound in the house...pretty much ignores them. She loves food and will very nicely take a treat from you. She absolutely LOVES to go on walks and will let you put her collar on without a snarl or growl!!! She actually whines and waits by the gate when we’re walking the other dogs to make sure we don’t forget to walk her. She’s like a completely different dog when she’s on a walk – actually seems happy!

Cecilia is being fostered in Medina, OH


Hi! My name is King, but my life has been far from regal. I spent the past 13 years of my life at an Amish puppy mill where my reign consisted of making puppies.

You see, I am a purebred, AKC registered Pomeranian. Once I got too old, I was dethroned and surrendered to Sophia's Grace Foundation. I am currently searching for a new kingdom in need of a handsome king. I am a very independent guy and love to be outside. Because I spent most of my life in a crate, I am still learning how to be a dog. I am not into toys, but I absolutely love food. I was recently neutered, had my teeth cleaned and was given an excellent bill of health (despite being a little older). I enjoy pets and sitting with humans on the couch, but I am perfectly fine lounging in a doggie bed or exploring the backyard as well. I am very easy going and get along with everyone - other dogs, cats, even little humans.

If you have a kingdom in need a King, then I'm your guy! Currently being fostered in Columbus, Ohio. Please go to the ADOPT page here on our website to fill out an adoption application for King!


Meet Cowboy! This handsome, sweet and intelligent 8-year-old boy is sure to wrap his lasso around your heart.  Like most country boys, Cowboy loves to have fun and play. Throw him a ball and he will be your best friend. He could play with his ball or plush toys all day. He is full of energy and enjoys going out for daily walks. He walks very well on a leash and likes to take trips to the park.


On his down time, he likes to curl up and cuddle.  Cowboy is good with other dogs and cats but seems to prefer hanging out with his human companions. He is skittish around young children but would likely be fine with older, respectful children.


Cowboy does have some separation anxiety. He would prefer a home where his people were home often or someone willing to work with him on his anxiety. He does bark when he gets excited, like when he first arrives at the park. Once he calms down, he's fine.  Cowboy is housebroken and up to date on his vaccines.


He is being fostered in Columbus, Ohio.

Little Man

Meet Little Man! This sweet, loving, beautiful curly haired boy has one brown eye and one blue. He is absolutely stunning. He is approximately 11 years old and weighs 14 pounds. He will need a very special forever home as he is hearing impaired and may have some vision problems. He is not blind and he gets around very well, but vision is not 100%. Little Man has separation anxiety, so he will need a home where his human is home all day. He is very food aggressive, so please, absolutely no small children. A dog brother or sister may be OK and he is good with cats.

Little Man is housebroken , loves his food and treats, walks well on a leash, is quiet, low maintenance and is a couch potato. He is an early riser, so you will need to be up early to make him breakfast! If you are looking for a constant companion to love on, lay on your lap and keep you company, he may be the perfect man for you! Applications may be submitted via the ADOPT page here on our website .


Meet Mickey! This stunning boy is 10 years young and full of love! Mickey weighs about 16 pounds and is a very friendly boy who is great with other dogs. He has not been around cats, but we suspect he would be fine since he is such an easy going boy. Mickey does fine with kids as well, but we recommend older, more respectful kids only. He enjoys walks and car rides, but his favorite pastime is snuggling with his humans!


If you think Mickey is the one for you, please go to our website and submit an adoption application now!  Currently fostering in Westerville, OH.


STF (single, tan female) looking for love and cuddles and kisses!  It's Valentine's Day and I want to be your forever Valentine.  I like long walks, a fine meal, and I also love to run and play.  Cuddling is also on my list of favorite things.  If you would like to be my Valentine, you can adopt me from Sophia's Grace Foundation!


Sandy is an approximately two-year-old Chiweenie.  She is spayed and UTD on vaccines.  She was surrendered in Alabama and came to us by way of a friend down south.  Unfortunately, her previous owners did not keep Sandy on preventive, and she tested positive for heartworms.  She has received a six-month ProHeart injection and a prescription for doxycycline to combat the worms, and will need to be rechecked in 6 months and may need a subsequent injection until she tests negative.  Our vet recommended this treatment method because of Sandy's high energy level as this does not require her to be kept calm and on restricted activity during her treatment.  It is also not as likely to make her sick and she will make a full recovery!  With this treatment she is also able to go to her forever home sooner so she can begin to make herself right at home! 


Sandy will need reinforcement of a consistent house-training routine to continue the progress she has made in her foster home.  She is crate trained and she has been working on leash manners as well.  Sandy is good with other dogs and would do fine with considerate children.  A fenced yard is required due to her high energy level.  She is fostered in Stony Creek, VA, Sussex County. Applications may be submitted via the ADOPT page here on the website


Meet Frankie! He is an adorable 10-year-old, 12 pound chihuahua who was one of thirty chihuahuas rescued from a backyard breeder in Alabama. He is very friendly, but shy upon initial meeting, so while he shows no aggression at all it will take him a bit to warm up to new humans. He is great with other dogs of all shapes and sizes, so his ideal home would have another dog(s) to help him feel more secure. He is pee pad trained and quickly learning to go outside. If you have the patience to allow this little sweetie to bloom in his own time, Frankie will make someone a wonderful companion dog!


Currently fostering in Tobyhanna, PA. Monroe County. 

Benny & Rocky

Meet Rocky and Benny, a bonded pair of male Pomeranians. Rocky is 13 and Benny is 8, but don’t let those numbers fool you, as these little boys are still quite active and engaging. Rocky is quiet, with the occasional raspy bark, while Benny is a bit more vocal, enjoying engaging with the neighbor dogs at his foster home while outside. The boys are housebroken, though they do require some supervision outside to make sure they are not distracted (or spooked in Rocky’s case) and get their business done before coming back inside, due to previously living in a home with a doggy door. Benny has demonstrated a bit of marking as his stay at the foster home has lengthened, but has adjusted to wearing a belly band and would likely stop altogether when in a home with fewer male dogs (there are 7 in his current foster).


They are crate trained, and so far, have not asked to sleep in the big bed. They will sleep in their crates but prefer to sleep in cozy dog beds or on the chaise lounge in the bedroom with the foster family. Both boys will use the stairs, but Rocky is afraid to come down the steps, and is being carried. They both love snack time and dinner, spinning in circles in excitement when the food and bowls are set out at feeding time. Both enjoy a nice cuddle, and will seek out attention. Benny really loves belly rubs, and has the most adorable head tilt when you talk to him. Rocky is very sweet and will follow you everywhere. They will make excellent companions for less active families, though they will also find napping spots, or play or groom each other, when the people are busy with activities. They are good with other dogs, kids, and cats. Could you be the perfect forever home for these delightful little boys?

Benny and Rocky are being fostered in Fairmont WV. 

Ruby & Toby

Meet Rudy and Toby! These bonded 12-year-olds are two of the sweetest old men you would ever want to meet. Rudy and Toby love everybody and everything, especially their meals and snacks. They would love a forever home with someone who is home a lot and in a house with no stairs.

Snuggling and giving kisses are their favorite past times. They are crate and paper trained but would do best with someone who will take the time to learn their schedule so that they can always be good boys. Toby is very quiet, and Ruby is a real talker. Applications may be submitted on the ADOPT page of our website .

Fostering in Smithfield, VA.


Meet Kazuki! This absolutely stunning boy was saved from death row at a shelter in Columbus, OH, and thank goodness, as he is just a wonderful dog!

Kazuki is 3 years old and our best guess is that he is some type of shepherd mixed with some type of working dog. He is about 50 pounds and while laid back, he does have a lot of energy, so a fenced yard and another canine playmate his size would be ideal.

Kazuki is completely housetrained and very playful. He does like to nose around the other dog’s food bowls at mealtime, so feeding him separately would be best. He is great with other dogs and kids, but likes to chase the cats in his foster him. He doesn’t want to hurt them, but he should only be around cats that will not be frightened by that behavior.

Kazuki would make a great dog for an active family that likes to play outdoors, go on long walks and maybe some hikes in the woods. Currently fostering in Millville, NJ.

Meet Diddy! He is a loving 8 year old, 15 pound mix (Papillon/Pomeranian?) who wants your full attention!!! He needs someone that can give him that as he wants nothing but love, love, love! Has to be muzzled for grooming and be very careful of loud noises!

He would do best as an only dog, as he loves to be the center of the universe, but would do fine with a submissive dog. He has been passed around a bit, so it takes a bit to earn his trust, and you need to be careful with quick movements as he may snap, but with time and patience Diddy will be your loyal boy for life! He can be anxious and strange noises may send him to hide and shake under the table, so again, it is imperative that he goes to a home that will offer him the patience and space he needs to show what a truly loving little boy he is. Diddy is completely housetrained and crate trained…just needs someone to finally love him unconditionally FOREVER!! Might that someone be YOU?

Diddy is fostering in Vineland, NJ.


Have you been looking for a small adorable dog who loves to cuddle? Then I'm your man. My name is Harley and I'm a 10 year young mix breed.

I was surrendered as a possible Chiweenie but after seeing the vet it is suspected I might be a Pug or Beagle mix. If you adopt me wouldn't it be fun to do a DNA test and find out?

I'm 17 pounds of good boy. I'm house broken and puppy pad trained. I love going on walks but I don't play. I'd rather cuddle and watch TV or follow you around the yard. I rarely bark and I never do anything naughty. I'm looking for a quiet laid back home. Perhaps with a senior couple or someone who doesn't mind my laziness. I do have a wee bit of separation anxiety since I love being around my humans so much, so someone who is home a great deal of the time or has another doggie to keep me company would be an ideal situation for me. I love other dogs and cats. I will chase kitties sometimes but never to harm them. I'd be just fine in a home with respectful children.

I do have a mild grade 2 heart murmur but the vet assured me I shouldn't have any issues. The vet said I'm one healthy boy with pretty teeth and a cute face. Won't you give me a soft place to lay my head forever? Currently fostering in Canton, OH.


Hi, there!  My name is Copper, and I am soooooo happy to meet you!  I am hanging out in a foster home with some great people and doggies, but I want to find a family of my very own to spoil me for the rest of my days!  If you are looking for a little ball of energy, I'm your gal!  I love to play, and I love to cuddle, so please send in your application to make me a part of your family today!


Copper is an approximately two-year-old Chiweenie.  She is spayed, weighs approximately 15 lb., and is UTD on vaccines.  She was surrendered in Alabama and came to us by way of a friend down south.  Unfortunately, her previous owners did not keep Copper on preventive, and she tested positive for heartworms.  She has received a six-month ProHeart injection and a prescription for doxycycline to combat the worms, and will need to be rechecked in 6 months and may need a subsequent injection until she tests negative.  Our vet recommended this treatment method because of Copper's high energy level as this does not require her to be kept calm and on restricted activity during her treatment.  It is also not as likely to make her sick and she will make a full recovery!  With this treatment she is also able to go to her forever home sooner so she can begin her new forever life.


Copper is high energy and loves to play.  She is crate trained and is working on house training and leash manners in her foster home, so she will need to continue to work on those skills.  Copper loves other dogs but can tend to try to be in charge and hog the attention of her people, so she needs the other dogs in her home to be tolerant of her being pushy.  A home with a fenced yard is a must since she has a lot of energy to expend.  Considerate kids are fine. Applications may be submitted via the ADOPT page here on our website. Copper is fostered in Stony Creek, VA.


Meet Prince! He is a 5 year old poodle mix. He is a love bug that found himself in need of a new home after his dad passed away. He is spunky and sweet, he loves his stuffed toys and tasty treats. This boy needs a bit of time to warm up to new people but once he does, he is a happy boy with a lot of spring in his step! He loves to run around the yard and also  enjoys walks on a leash. This little guy needs someone to love. He is good with other dogs and cats but is not fond of young children. Applications may be submitted via the ADOPT page here on our website.
