Adopting from PLDS

Adoptable pups are shown below.

Thank you for your interest in adoption! We have some beautiful babies that would flourish in a home of their own. Don't let the silver on their faces keep you from seeing the light in their eyes. Seniors make a wonderful addition to many homes, and they have so much love to give. Please keep in mind that senior Dachshunds are not always a good fit with families who have very young children. Our babies have not been kid tested nor have they been exposed to cats.

 All of our adoptable babies have been altered, updated on all age appropriate vaccinations, tested for heart worms and intestinal worms, and any required dental work has been done. All of our seniors have a complete blood work up to insure there are no underlying medical conditions. Some of our adoptable seniors require medications each day and that is indicated in their bios.

Because we rescue mostly senior and special needs dogs we don't do nearly as many adoptions as a regular rescue group. We do however make every effort to place as many of our babies as possible up for adoption. Quite a few of our available dogs are bonded with another dog. We have one set of three dogs that have spent their entire lives together, and they must be adopted together. While we understand that adopting multiple dogs at once is difficult, we are committed to keeping these bonded babies together. 

We are open to adoption from any state. Our transport team can get these babies to most areas in Texas. Adoptive families outside of the state must, however, provide that additional part of any transports. We are open to adoptive families flying in to Midland to pick up their new family members. We will not, however, place a dog on a plane to fly alone.

Our adoption fees are $250 for any young dogs that require spay/neuter as well as all other vet care.
Our seniors have an adoption fee of $200. Any bonded pairs or groups would be $250.

We also offer a senior-for-senior discount.  Any senior that adopts a senior dog will receive a discount on the adoption fee of $100. 


There is an application at the bottom of this page that contains all the information needed to apply for our babies


Three Bonded Dapples


Dewey, Gus, and Baby Blue are three very bonded seniors.  The boys are rarely more than a few feet apart and Gus is Baby Blue's son.  Dewey takes heart meds to control his murmur and arrhythmia but is doing fine.  They are 13 to 15 years old.  Each has some vision issues but they navigate their foster home with ease.

Tala - 8 Years Old


Tala makes a new friend with each encounter.  Her curiousity is adorable but not intrusive.  She is 8 years old and is a breeder surrender, more social than most breeder dogs.  Tala enjoys her cuddle time and watching old black-and-white noir detective stories.  She is heartworm negative and just had a dental.  She gets along well with other dogs and should be fine with older children.

Hershey is seven years old and quite healthy.  Her chocolate coat and cinnamon eye highlights ensure she stands out wherever she goes.  She also has a lovely smile.  Hershey likes a good game of fetch with a small ball but she will be happy to cuddle with her peeps.  Her calmness will keep you calm.  She is in a foster home near Baton Rouge waiting for her spay surgery but will be adoptable after that.
