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




 Sophia is still looking for her forever home. She is approximately 2 years old and we think she is a Chiweenie (Chihuahua - Dachshund) mix. Sophie is doing very well with her foster family who have 4 other babies. She is a snuggler that loves to cuddle on the couch with her mom. Sophia has been spayed and vaccinated. She takes monthly heart worm prevention medication. This little doll was described by her foster mom as a small deer that won’t grow up and doesn’t smell like wildlife! LOL! If you are interested in this little girl please fill out an application.




River came to us from a hoarding situation.  He is a young pup who needs a full set of three rounds of vaccines.   He is a lovable little man.  We think River will be adoptable in early April.  You can complete an application near this bottom of this page.  




This is Riley. She came to us in late February after being rescued from a hoarder. I’m guessing this little gal is about 5 years old. She appears to be in good health and her teeth are not horrible. She is the first Dachshund I’ve ever seen that was born without a tail. Her angel told me that at one point she had a litter of pups that were both born without tails. Riley is tiny, about 8 pounds I think. She has a small Cherry Eye forming in her left eye. We will have that removed when she is spayed in the next few weeks. This baby is a cuddler and sinks into me when I hold her. So grateful for the lady that rescued Riley and River and brought them to the sanctuary.  Riley should be ready to adopt in mid-April.  Applications may be submitted using the form below. 




 This is Brandy. She has been here with us for several months. Brandy is just a pup of about 6-8 months old. She has been completely vetted, and takes monthly heart worm prevention. Doc Jess said that most likely her head tilt was either genetic or caused from an injury as a tiny pup. The head tilt is actually getting a bit better these days and it does not cause her any discomfort. Brandy is playful like all pups and needs a loving family to make sure she is adored in spite of her slight difference. She loves other dogs and she loves happy children. If you have a spot in your heart and your home for this little angel please fill out an application.




 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. 




Cricket is a small mixed-breed pup of only about 6-7 months old. Cricket loves the other dogs and runs and plays with the entire pack around here. Cricket needs a home with some kids that would love to run and play with him. Cricket is working on his puppy shots and will be altered in about 2 weeks. At that point he will be available for his new family to love. Please consider filling out an application to bring Cricket into your life.  





Bonnie and Clyde


This bonded pups are rarely more than a few feet apart.  Bonnie & Clyde love to romp in and out the dog door and do zoomies in the yard.  They are very loving little pups that will bring much joy to their forever home.  We think they are about 6 years old.
