Mr. Peabody is 4 years old and 10 lbs. he is a Dachshund of the dapple sorts! He is loving and sweet and loves to play fetch. Unfortunately he is recovering from a back injury and is being restricted at this time. He may have some neurological damage. Time will only tell. This breed is prone to back problems, so if you are not prepared for this please do not apply. We are also requesting no families with children. Mean while when Peabody does walk he enjoys carrying his ball hoping someday he will be able to enjoy a short distance game of fetch. Being that he has restrictions and may need medical care, we are seeking $150 for his adoption fee. Make no mistake, we are not lowering the price to encourage adoptions. We will be very selective as to who will get to adopt this guy! He is neutered, UTD and microchipped. He will also have his teeth cleaned before adoption.

To prospective adopters;
It is true rescuers are more particular of who they adopt dogs too. We see all the horrible treatment of animals every day. We literally rescue dogs from the poor or abusive treatment of humans. In my personal opinion, society has evolved to where owning a dog is a right and privilege. Most people consider only what they want and not what is right for the dog. That is why once a dog is in our hands and consequently in our hearts, we make sure that anyone who adopts an animal from us has a good life to offer the dog. It is not an easy task. Everyone wants a dog. We try to screen people first before getting too involved with helping them find a dog, or we would be simply selling dogs. We are also a strictly a volunteer organization. Most of us work at least part time jobs. Our time to the rescue is valuable and limited. We believe that anyone who is sincerely a wonderful potential adopter, will endure the process.
