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 ensure 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




 Nickolas came to the sanctuary on Dec 20th. He is approximately 6 years old. This little man was very shy upon his arrival but is warming up to us. He has been neutered and has vaccinations updated. Heart worm negative. Nickolas most likely has another breed in his background somewhere but he is all Dachshund at heart. He has learned to use the doggie door and is doing very well on his house training. Nickolas gets along very well with other dogs and we feel he would do great with older children. He needs an active home where he can enjoy playful days and warm cozy nights. 




Leo is looking for a forever home. He has a strong preference for men!  Leo is 6 years old and a full standard with the most gorgeous copper colored coat that gleams like a new penny in the sunshine. His vaccinations have been updated. His teeth have been cleaned and he was neutered. Leo is heart worm negative and takes monthly prevention. Leo is currently living in our Doggie Room with 12 other babies and he is getting along very well with them all. He uses the doggie door and is doing fairly well with his house training. He rides well in a car and does fine in a wire crate for feeding only. Leo has a strong hunting instinct and will chase birds or squirrels all day long. Leo is not a candidate for a home with children.  If you have a spot in your home and your heart for this gorgeous young man please scroll down for the adoption application. 




Truffles is 5 years old. He has a beautiful fawn colored coat with black over lay. Truffles has been neutered, vaccinated, and just had his teeth cleaned. He is heart worm negative and on monthly prevention. Truffles is a sensitive little man that would do best in a quiet home with no small children. He is doing very well with his house training. Truffles needs a comfy lap to make his forever home a perfect fit.  His owner found him three years ago abandoned at a road side rest stop. The owner has been placed in an assisted living facility and Truffles needed a soft spot to land. See below for the adoption application.
