Dapple's Story

Dapple is the sweetest 4 month old terrier/dachshund mix. She’s around 10 lbs. Dapple has been responding to the name Daphne and does a good job of coming when called or whistled for. She is playful, sweet and curious about the world around her. She is a tad timid at first when meeting new people but warms up quickly. She loves to prance around the house with a big stuffed toy in her mouth and looks so proud to be carrying it. She enjoys chewing on chew toys, getting belly rubs, and napping in her crate. She sleeps through the night and is doing a pretty good job at using the pee pads. Dapple is currently being fostered in Connecticut with two adults, a toddler and an adult dog. She loves to play and run, and once she's tired she loves to curl up next to you for a snooze. Dapple would benefit from someone who is willing to work on her basic puppy commands and crate training. She has a lot of love to give and deserves all the love in return, she would make anyone very, very happy!

This pet's adoption fee is $500. She is being fostered in CT.

If you've already applied and would like to transfer your application to Dapple, please submit an Adoption Application Transfer Request.

Adoption Process

All of our dogs come spayed or neutered, up to date on vaccinations, including rabies (if age appropriate) and bordetella, are microchipped, heartworm negative, current on flea/tick and heartworm prevention, dewormed, and treated for any ailments found upon veterinary examination. The adoption fee covers a portion of these services, and makes it possible for us to continue rescuing animals. Please note that our pets come from shelters, so we CANNOT guarantee age, breed, mix of breeds, or adult size.

For more information on the adoption fees and the adoption process, please complete our adoption application - an application allows us to get to know your family better so we can assess whether the animal you are interested in is a good match for your home.

An application does not obligate you to adopt, and can be transferred to any pet. Please understand that due to the volume of applications some animals receive, we are unable to contact all applicants. If your application is considered a good fit for the pet you are interested in, or even a different pet, a volunteer will give you a call within 7-10 days. If you would like to transfer your application to a different pet, please submit an adoption application transfer request. You will need the application number and email address from your original application.

We are a foster-based rescue and do not have a shelter location where pets can be seen during the week. Please see our Facebook page for our weekly adoption album if you are interested in meeting a pet in person. Not all animals attend every adoption event, please check our Facebook page for animal event times and locations before you make a trip to meet a specific animal.

Thanks so much for caring about a needy animal!
