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.



Jack and Freddie are a bonded pair who must be adopted together.  Jack is an 11 year old Yorkie. He is spunky and sweet and loves to be cuddled. Jack is house trained and gets along well with other dogs. He has been altered, groomed, and had his teeth cleaned and blood work done. He is HW negative and on monthly prevention. Jack has many good years left to give to a family that will love him. 


Freddie and Jack are a bonded pair and must be adopted together.   Freddie is all Dachshund. He has a spirited disposition and a curious mind. Freddie is house trained and gets along very well with other dogs. He loves Jack and they always cuddle together in one bed at night. Freddie had cherry eye in both of his eyes when he arrived but that has been corrected with surgery. His teeth have just been cleaned and his blood work looks great. He and Jack would love to come to your loving home for the holidays.   Freddie and Jack are 11 years old.

Bebe needs someone to cuddle,

Bebe 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. 


As Mr. Ed says "Oh, Willl-buurrr".   

This little guy is looking for a new forever home of his own. He is about 2 years old and we believe he is Chihuahua mix. He weighs about 9 pounds. Wilbur is a sweet dog that desperately needs to have a consistent loving environment. He gets along very well with other dogs. Have not had him around children or cats. He needs work on his house training and on leash training but he is a smart little guy and could make someone a wonderful, loyal companion. Wilbur is altered and up to date on his vaccinations. He is heart worm negative and on monthly prevention. If you are interested in adding Wilbur to your family please fill out an application at 


Lexi  has regained her health.

This is Lexi and she came to the sanctuary in Nov. 2017 from a TX shelter. She was heart worm positive, over-weight, and had a mouth full of bad teeth. We have treated the heart worms and cleaned her teeth. We are still working on the weight loss. At times Lexi can be the sweetest girl and then other times when she is excited she can get a bit aggressive. The other dogs in her pack know how she is and mostly ignore her now.  However, Lexi will probably do best as an only dog or in a home experienced with coaching through behavioral issues.  Lexi is one of so many seniors with health issues that end up in our shelters.
