Hi, my name is Josie. I am a very sweet and sassy 2 year old standard dachshund mix. I have been through a lot this past year, I had a litter of 5 puppies and went through a very intense heartworm treatment. I would love a home where I get a lot of attention. I love to curl up and be by my people. I like to play with dogs, but I definitely don’t like cats. I would be happy with or without another dog in my home. I need a fenced yard to run around and play in. Will you be my forever family?

Adoption Policy:

  • Complete an adoption application and submit it. You will receive an onscreen confirmation we received it.
  • Once your application is initially reviewed, we then contact your veterinarian and references. After that, a H.E.L.P. volunteer will contact you. Please be patient, this does take some time especially over a weekend. Please allow 24-72 hours for us to make contact with you.
  • All members of the family must be present in order to adopt. We want to make sure it's a good fit for everyone!
  • Because this is a life time commitment, once you meet the foster dog, there is a 24 hour waiting period for you to make sure that the fit is right for everyone. So many people see a cute face and want to take them home right away without really thinking about it. The waiting period also allows you to get supplies ready for your new one.
  • We do not ship dogs within or out of the state.


  • Puppy and Adult dog adoption fees are variable.
