To fill out an adoption application for this dog please visit www.WolfSpiritsRescue.com Ellie is being fostered in Lorain County OH. Here's an update from her foster family Ellie is doing really well! She fit in with my pups as soon as she got here. Her tail wags whenever she is with them! Every day she is getting more and more accustomed to Rob and I? So scared at first. She comes closer and closer to us each day. She sleeps in the big doggy bed or close to me on the floor. She loves to eat and stays by me when I am preparing their food, or getting treats! She is getting used to us petting her and is starting to like getting cuddles from us. We have yet to hear her bark. I do put a diaper on her during times we are gone and at night time. We carry her in and out as we have a big step to go out. Overall, she is doing quite well. She has met our daughter and likes her a lot! She is a silly, fun little girl. Ellie has been spayed and had a mass removed on her belly. It was not cancerous. She is still pretty shy of people and will run when approached. This poor little girl needs someone that has time, patience and extra love for her to overcome the horrors she must have encountered in a puppy mill. Her foster mom knows that she will make someone a great companion once she learns to trust. Ellie went into the vet clinic for a spay, dental and tumor removal. They did her dental first and it was very extensive. Ellie lost all of her teeth as well as some blood so the vet decided it was best to wait to do her spay and tumor removal until another time. Her bill came to $464.22. Once Ellie is healed she will go in for her spay and tumor removal which will be added onto her bill. Please sponsor Ellie so that we can get her vet bill paid off. Her adoption fee is $275 which will not even cover half of her vetting. https://paypal.me/wolfspiritsrescue She's had a very extensive dental and all of her teeth were removed so she will need to continue on a soft diet. Right now she is eating a raw diet from Blue Ridge Beef but we also feed Organix canned. She is still pretty shy and frightens easily. She will run from us when we try to pick her up. I know one day she will overcome her fears. Ellie needs a home with someone that is willing to accept the fact that she may not be totally trusting. Years in a mill being neglected and ignored do take a toll on some dogs. Ellie is still very timid with people and will need a home with someone with patience who understands puppy mill dogs. She needs a quiet home with no small children since she frightens so easily. Ellie would like another companion to play with though Status: Available for Adoption (adoption info) Adoption Fee: 275.00 Species: Dog General Color: White with Red, Golden, Orange or Chestnut Current Size: 13.9 Pounds Current Age: 6 Years 4 Months (best estimate) Location: NE Ohio Fence Required: Yes Obedience Training Needed: Needs Training Exercise Needs: Moderate Shedding Amount: Moderate Reaction to New People: Cautious Look at the markings on this shy girl. She's a breeder release 6 yr old Doxie. She's pretty timid and not trusting of people. She will need a dental cleaning probably with extractions so she could use a few sponsors to help with her bills. She also has a lump on her belly that will need to be removed when she is spayed. Her foster mom thinks she is awesome. She was an angel getting those long claws trimmed. Ellie could use your help with her vet bills.

More About Dachshund Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

To fill out an adoption application for this dog please visit www.WolfSpiritsRescue.com Rain came to us on Sept 2016 from a terrible hoarding situation with Summer who was adopted last November. She is a sweet little girl who wants nothing but your love and attention. She is working on her house manners but doing much better. She still has accidents but we blame that on the human who doesn't keep her on a schedule. She is a wild one, full of energy and would love a family with children that like to play play play. She still does not like a leash so we feel a home with a fenced yard would be best for her. Rain gets a little too excited and doesn't come when called so care when doors to the outside are opened. She would be gone in a flash if given the chance. Rain loves to run yet loves to cuddle as well. She is food motivated so getting her attention is pretty easy as long as you have food in your hand.

She is out and about all the time now and very playful. Always grabbing a toy and engaging in play with the other dogs.

Still too afraid to go out but wants to badly. extremely playful, always willing to play and interact with each other and the other dogs. Dixie got hold of an empty bread bag the other day and entertained herself for 20 minutes with it. She tore it up and barked at it and raced around the house with it. She was having so much fun, I didn't have the heart to stop her, so I just cleaned it up when she was done! Peole may not think that's a big deal, but considering that she never left her crate for 4 weeks and cowered if you even looked her way, it really is!" Dixie still has some trust issues but with the someone that has patience and lots of love she will learn to trust . Her foster mom will be very picky as to where she goes so if you think you are the right family for Dixie please fill out out application for her and we'll be in touch.

She will cuddle up with her foster mom for a bit but if someone comes in the room she is off and under the couch. We fell that Nessie would do best with a home that has someone home most of the day to help her overcome her fears yet. Also one that does not have younger children who seem to scare her even more. She has wirey hair that will need to be brushed, which she likes. Nessie is learning how to walk on a leash so potty training is coming along pretty well. She will use a peepee pad if she has to. She is an anxious little girl who needs someone with some extra love and patience.

To fill out an adoption application for this dog please visit www.WolfSpiritsRescue.com We currently need foster homes for small, medium and large breeds. Yes, we are expanding since there are so many dogs that need a home. Help us help them to safety. So many have a sad story and just need a little love and attention to help them blossom into happy/trusting companions. Won't you help them by providing a temporary home for them? Thinking of adoption but not sure ? What a great way to see if a particular dog is the right fit for you too. The more foster homes we have the more we can all save together. Some need fenced yards while others don't. Some are not good with young children. We will let our foster homes know everything we know about each particular dog prior to them fostering them. All dogs are isolated for a minimum of two weeks so that our foster homes' own pets are not in danger of catching something contagious ( kennel cough, etc ) They are completely vetted prior to coming to your home. We provide heartworm prevention for each foster dog as well as all vet expenses. All we ask is that our foster homes provide lots of love, patience, understanding, a premimum quality food, and a crate for training. Foster homes will also provide monthly updates including pictures to be posted on our web site. Please email for more details if you are interested in fostering. Or call Robin @ 234-571-9014 Or click on the link below to fill out our foster application and one of our volunteers will be in contact with you. http://www.wolfspiritsrescue.com/info/display?PageID=3873
