Adopting from PLDS


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.



This is Bebe. He is only a little over a year old. Bebe came to us with a problem in his right hip joint that Doc Jess corrected surgically. He shows no residual signs of the problem now and he can run and play all he wants. Bebe has been neutered, updated on his shots, tested negative for heart worms and is receiving monthly heart worm prevention. He is an extremely sweet little man and he loves to cuddle and get kisses. Bebe gets along very well with other dogs and children.

 Layla is a beautiful 2 year old Dachshund female. She has been thru some tough times in her life and was very fearful when she arrived at the sanctuary. Because of her past we are looking for a quiet home with no small children. Layla gets along with other dogs but would really thrive in a home where she is the queen. Layla loves to be held and cuddled and does very well on a leash. She is working hard on her house training but needs a patient compassionate best friend to help her get it down pat. Layla has been spayed, is up to date on all shots, heart worm negative, and she takes monthly heart worm prevention. Perhaps you have enough love to share with this little doll. She will make some lucky person a wonderful, loving companion. 


Flannery wandered into a yard in Merryville, Louisiana in late July.  Fortunately that yard belonged to her first angel, Elizabeth.  She contacted us about this wee girl and Jeff went to fetch her.  She lost 13 teeth of her 42 teeth in her mouth surgery but she is otherwise healthy.   She is a sweet, healthy girl of about 8 years and 9 pounds.  Cuddling is her favorite activity but she also likes to play and chase with our other young one, Waylon.  She is house-trained and uses the doggie door.  Flannery gets along with other dogs very well.  Not tested with cats.  We feel she would be good with older children.  She is quite agreeable in every way.  Seldom barks even at the UPS driver.
