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)
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!
This rockstar dog is Ladybug!
As you can see from her photos, she is very photogenic and full of personality. Lady is a seven year old Min Pin Chihuahua mix and she is a wonderful dog!
She is curious, smart, loves to dress up, house-trained, and great with all people and other dogs. Lady's one struggle is the chronic skin issues that she has battled her whole life. Foster Mom and her vet have worked hard to get Lady's hair growing back and to get her skin healthy, but it will be an ongoing process. We have ruled out any kind of infection or allergy causing her skin problems so it is likely an auto-immune disease that flares up and makes Lady's skin irritated. Keeping her clothed and her skin covered and constant monitoring for any hot spots is crucial to her comfort and skin health.
If you can give Ladybug the love and devotion she deserves, send in your application today! Ladybug is fostered in Yorktown, VA.
Meet Butters - a guy who can melt your heart like, well like Butter! Butters is a 6-year-old Yorkshire Terrier who is full of energy and has lots of love to give. Butters is neutered, house-trained, and just had a dental to shine his pearly whites. Butters is also epileptic, but his seizures are managed well on phenobarbital, which requires testing every 6 months to monitor his liver levels while on this medication. Nothing stops him from being a funny, affectionate boy who just wants love & lots of fun in his life!
Butters can be overwhelming to other dogs, so a meet and greet with your pups is recommended. He would do great with children over age 6 as he would love someone to run and play with him. When settling into a new home, Butters may need some anxiety meds to help him be calm around his new doggie buddies while they get to know each other. He also needs lots of exercise and to keep busy so an active family would be perfect for Butters.
If you can give this handsome guy a second chance at love and the perfect happily ever after, please put in your application today! Butters is fostered in Smithfield, VA.
Meet Star. This sweet baby was kept outside for years and finally just left behind when her owners moved. When Sophia’s Grace Foundation stepped in and took her, she had out of control, untreated diabetes that not only left her blind but emaciated too because her body couldn’t convert food into nutrients. The vet estimates she’s about 8 and best guess is she is Min Pin/Rat Terrier Mix. She’s since gotten on insulin and her blood sugar is regulated and kept under control and she looks like a completely different dog!
Because she was kept outside, she isn’t housebroken but accidents can be drastically minimized by taking her out regularly and when she wakes up. She is blind but acclimates to her surroundings so well that unless you move something out of place, you really won’t notice that she can’t see. It’s truly amazing to watch her navigate her environment.
She does need her blood sugar tested twice a day before she eats and requires an insulin shot after each meal. She’s excellent about both-she just has the sweetest disposition in general. She loves to sleep in bed with a person and often chooses to sleep with her 8-year-old human foster brother after breakfast and her morning shot. She’s good with other dogs and gets along great with her feline foster sister. She is currently fostering in Wheelersburg, OH in Scioto County, but we can help with transport to the perfect forever home! Apply for sweet Star here: www.sophiasgracefoundation.org

Hello! I am Hawkeye. My brothers and I are ready for adoption. We are all sweet, cute, and playful boys. I love people (all people), and I love other dogs, running, chasing a ball, sitting next to my foster mom, and being loved. I was born on May 3, 2021. Of the four pups I am the calmest and the one who likes to sit and look at my brothers before I decide when to jump in to play. Playing is great, but sometimes too rowdy for me.
My adoption fee is $750. Before adoption I will be fully vaccinated, neutered, microchipped, wormed and on flea and heartworm preventative.
If you are interested in Hawkeye please go to our website www.sophiasgracefoundation.org to fill out an application. If you have any questions about him please contact his foster coordinator Christine at Niccar14@yahoo.com.

In Hebrew, Jasper means "Jewel" and this handsome guy is indeed a jewel. Jasper is a 9 year old Pomeranian who loves dogs, cats, kids, just everyone! He is looking for someone with a soft couch, a soft bed, and lots of love to give a senior guy.
Jasper is neutered, microchipped, and just had a dental to shine up his stellar smile. Jasper does have some quirks - he doesn't really like to do "business" on the leash so he would do best in a home with a yard where he can roam and take his time for potty breaks. He will also need a refresher course on house training, Jasper knows what the routine is, he just needs reinforcement of good habits. He is also a little on the chunky side and could use some careful monitoring of his diet to keep him on his weight loss journey.
If you think you have the right stuff to make Jasper a happy forever home, please fill out our online adoption application at www.sophiasgracefoundation.org. Jasper is fostered in Carrollton, VA.
Hello lovely folks! My name is Girlie and I am a super special little girl - my foster mommy says so! You see, I have a neurological disorder which causes me to circle when I am stressed and it also affects my vision and I am not able to go up and down steps. I am also not able to tell you when I want to go outside to potty so as soon as I wake up I need to be taken out. What I love most is to be cuddled, but I am such an independent lady that I have to talk to you when you pick me up. Foster mom says I am all talk and no bite. Okay, so cuddles are something I love, but FOOD - now there is the way to my heart. I get so excited for dinner or a treat that I will do a dance for you. I would also like my person to be around most of the time because I am foster mom's shadow and I love togetherness. Do I sound like the special Girlie for you? I sure hope so!!
Girlie is a 3 to 4 year old Miniature Pinscher who is spayed, microchipped, and current on vaccines. The reason for the neurological problems is unknown but most symptoms are well managed with trazodone. She is unable to jump on furniture or navigate steps due to limited depth perception, and when she is picked up she will growl and show teeth but has never bitten. Girlie sleeps in a crate at night but is not completely crate trained. She has a very definite schedule for her potty needs - 3 to 4 hours after a meal and/or as soon as she wakes from a nap she needs to be taken out to avoid an accident. She is good with other dogs but mostly ignores them. Girlie would not be recommended to be in a home with young children because of her special needs.
Girlie is fostered in Chesterfield, VA. To adopt Girlie, please complete the application on our website: www.sophiasgracefoundation.org
He is a very dapper 4-year-old Min Pin/Chihuahua mix weighing about 12 pounds.
Jeffrey is great with other dogs and even good with foster mom’s cats. He is a smart little cookie too! He has already learned “sit” and “shake” and is learning to drop his toy so foster mom’s granddaughter can throw it again and again! Jeffrey is housetrained and all around just a nice little boy, but he would prefer a home without very young children.
His adoption fee is $375.00, and he is currently fostering in Mount Carmel, PA. Applications may be submitted via our website: www.sophiasgracefoundation.org
This handsome guy is Rocky and at 12 years old he found himself homeless and looking for the love and security of his new forever family. Rocky surrendered to the shelter when his family was moving and chose not to take their companion of 12 years with them. He had only known one home and one owner, and he also had the difficulty of a language barrier (Rocky knows Spanish) making life at the shelter all the more scary. But luckily enough Sophia's Grace Foundation saw his picture and found a spot in foster care for him. Even though he had left the noisy shelter, Rocky was still scared and would not come out of his travel carrier for two days and then holed up under his foster mom's bed for a week while he got used to his new normal.
Once he ventured out - food is his great motivator - Rocky learned that a new family could offer love and companionship and he is now ready to find that happily-ever-after he so deserves.
Rocky is a 12 year old Jack Russell Terrier. He is neutered, microchipped, and current on all vaccines. Rocky is crate trained and house trained, but will mark in the house if not supervised as his previous owner did not neuter him. Rocky is smart, affectionate, rides well in the car, and enjoys walks on the leash.
Rocky is being fostered in Smithfield VA. Applications may be submitted via our website: www.sophiasgracefoundation.org
He is an adorable 10–12-year-old Rat Terrier mix who just loves to snuggle. He is a tiny little nugget weighing just 7 pounds, and he is a total sweetheart!
He is a quiet little boy as well and the only time foster mom has heard him bark is when someone has walked in her front door. Donny gets along great with other dogs but should not go to a home with young children.
He is currently fostering in Greensburg, IN and his adoption fee is $200.00. If you would like to add this sweet little man to your family, please apply via our website: www.sophiasgracefoundation.org
This dapper gentleman is Charcoal. He is a 12ish year old dachshund weighing about 15 lb, neutered, microchipped, and current on all vaccines. Charcoal is good with other dogs, is mostly house trained when kept on a strict schedule, and does not enjoy a crate. He takes a bit of time to get used to new people, but when he does he becomes your shadow and constant companion.
Being 12, Charcoal does have some medical challenges - he has a grade 4 heart murmur, has an oronasal fistula from the poor dental care he received before coming to rescue (he has had a recent dental), and may be hard of hearing because he can startle easily. He loves to sleep in the big bed with his human and loves exploring his fenced domain with his person. If a crabby old dachshund is the kind of companion you desire, then Charcoal is the guy for you!
Charcoal is fostered in Hampton VA and has an adoption fee of $200.00. He has a lot of love left to give the perfect person, so complete the online adoption application on our website, www.sophiasgracefoundation.org
Milo is a sweet pup, approximately 4 months old, who has learned to love sitting in your lap (when he isn’t busy playing or napping!). He has also become a fan of belly rubs, puppy treats, and chew toys. Milo is still very much a puppy, and will require some more training on his potty habits (he does quite well now, as long as you take him out regularly and have pee pads that he can get to if necessary). Milo has done well walking on the leash. He has been pretty quiet, and lets his sister Maya do all the talking.
His adoption fee is $750. He is fully vaccinated, neutered, microchipped, wormed and on flea and heart worm preventative. All transport costs are included. He is available for a meet & greet by approved adopters.
If you are interested in Milo please go to our website www.sophiasgracefoundation.org to fill out an application. Milo is located in Plymouth Massachusetts
Maya is a sassy 4 month old, who’s not afraid to tell you how she is feeling!! She has a lot of energy and is very curious. She needs lots of chew toys and attention – she is walking very well on a leash, and has been great with her pottying (though she will need some more work on that). Maya would benefit from someone who sets boundaries. She keeps an eye out for her brother, and makes sure to check on him if they have to be apart
Her adoption fee is $750. She is fully vaccinated, spayed, microchipped, wormed and on flea and heart worm preventative. All transport costs are included. She is available for a meet & greet by approved adopters.
If you are interested in Maya please go to our website www.sophiasgracefoundation.org to fill out an application. Maya is located in Plymouth Massachusetts
Meet Tater Tot and Pancake!
Tater Tot is a sweet 2-year-old 8-pound chihuahua who loves going on walks, chasing squirrels in the backyard, and snuggling in bed with his people and his favorite friend, Pancake. He is a typical small chihuahua and likes to bark at strange new people in his house or on walks but has never threatened to bite and warms up to people very quickly. With training he has gotten less reactive on walks and will walk past new people without barking when tempted with the reward of cheese. In fact, Tater Tot will do almost anything for cheese. He is a sweet boy who loves to be held and curl into a ball on top of pillows.
Tater Tot loves to sleep in bed with his humans and enjoys burrowing under blankets at night to stay warm. Tater is also happy to sleep in the kennel alongside Pancake, although neither dog is destructive if left out in the house overnight or during the day. Tater Tot is housetrained but does have accidents when he is not let outside on a consistent schedule. He would do best in a home where he can be let outside frequently and consistently.
Pancake is a very playful 3-year-old 13-pound dachshund mix who loves snuggling in bed with her friend Tater Tot, playing with squeaky toys, and dragging around her fleece blankets. She is, however, quite nervous around new people and takes a couple days to warm up those she doesn't know. When feeling insecure or scared, she will bark and climb back into her crate. Once she has gotten comfortable around you, she will follow you around the house and climb into your lap the second you sit down. She does great on walks alongside Tater Tot and takes lots of naps throughout the day. Pancake would do best in a quiet home where there aren't new people coming and going frequently. If you are looking for a sweet dog that will wag her tail and jump up and down every time you come home, she's your girl.
Pancake loves to sleep in bed with her humans and prefers to sleep at the foot of the bed snuggled into one of her fleece blankets. Pancake is also happy to sleep in the kennel alongside Tater, although neither dog is destructive if left out in the house overnight or during the day. Pancake is housetrained but does have accidents when she is not let outside on a consistent schedule. When she gets too excited, she tends to piddle if she hasn't been outside recently. She would do best in a home where he can be let outside frequently and consistently.
Pancake & Tater Tot are a bonded pair who love to snuggle and play together. Both dogs would do best in a home where there aren't many new faces and where they can be let outside often. Once they have settled in, both dogs LOVE their people and will always be excited to see you. Neither dog has been tested around cats or children, but due to their nervousness around new people, we do not recommend a home with young children. They are currently fostering in Columbus, OH and the adoption fee for the pair is $650.00. If interested in adding this adorable pair to your family, please go to our website and submit an online adoption application: www.sophiasgracefoundation.org
