Happy Endings

Below are some of the furkids who have gone to wonderful forever home.  You will see that their original information is still listed with them.  The reason we don't give follow up information is to protect the identities of the adoptive homes.  But we did want you to know that these pups have actually been adopted.

Dixie Lee

Nashville, TN

Up To Date on Vaccinations/Spayed


This little girl is 15+ years old.   Adopted 8 years ago from a Schipperke club's rescue, she is once again in need of rescue.

Her name is Dixie Lee and her owners are leaving the country.   Dixie Lee would not be allowed to travel in cabin due to country's policy for the long international trip. She would be forced to fly in cargo with the luggage.

Given her age, her owner fears this would be too much to ask of her.


Dixie Lee has some special needs. She takes Levocrine 0.1 mg 2x daily for r hypothyroidism and 1/4 ursodiol 250mg 2x daily for her colon.  She has had stomach issues in the past and this seems to keep them at bay. She has mild arthritis in her hind legs, so it takes a few minutes for her to get her legs moving, then she gets around quite well and is active.


Dixie Lee lives with and is best buddies with a cat.  She has not lived with other dogs or children, but did live with other dogs 8 years ago if a foster home.  She is house trained and did well on a leash several years ago, so could be re-introduced if needed.


SRN is looking for a retirement home for Dixie Lee.  She will come with rescue medical support to help keep her on her medication.

Please remember, FaceBook is not monitored daily so if you want to know more ore be considered for adoption, you must email or fill out an application.  Please direct inquires through email, not FaceBook.


Update: 3/17/2016



Female, approx. 8 1/2 years old. UTD on vaccinations, spayed, on heart-worm prevention, weighs about 13 lbs. Gets along with other dog in the house.


Is food aggressive with other dogs. Dominant, pulls and barks at other dogs outside of the home.

Adorable and smart with her people. Very loyal.


The 2 worst things: unpredictable peeing in the house. She gets very anxious when owner leaves the house - especially if no other person is home. Barks on and off when people come over.

Recommend crate use when dog is left alone.



Grizzly - Tennessee

Grizzly is male, age 4.5 years old, and quite obese.  He weighs 35 pounds and needs to lose about 15 of them - mostly by exercise and a reduced calorie diet.


He grumbles and growls, is defensive (protective), but not aggressive.  He will do okay with a female dog that is not the "in your face" type, i.e. Beta or lower - just not an alpha.  He will try to dominate.  Once bonded, he is super loving but protective of his owner and home.  ABSOLUTELY NO SMALL CHILDREN!  Adult home only.


Final Evaluation Pending.



Jenny - Scottsdale, AZ

Jenny is approximately 10 years of age.  Bright and lively.  However, she can be bossy to other dogs, i.e. an alpha female.  Would be ideal as an only dog or with a male.

MEET SCOOTER -Burgettstown, PA

Scooter is a neutered male, about 9 years of age. Scooter's family is having to move due to medical issues and needs a loving home for their boy.


Scooter has manners and is social. He does some arthritis in his back, but does not have difficulty with it on a daily basis. He would need to be in easy home and not running and jumping all over the stairs because of his back, but can and does live a normal paced life.


Scooter's only downfall is that he is not comfortable with young children. He is very good with other dogs and takes a walk with his neighbor's dog every day.


SRN is open to either accepting Scooter as a foster or helping someone directly offer a home for this baby.


If you are interested either in a direct adoption from his family or available to foster him for SRN, Please call 757 926-4467 or email with the name Scooter in the subject line.

UPDATE: 8-17-2014




This precious little girl is somewhere between 12 and 14 years old but VERY active.


She is adorable!  She is loving and bonding and deserves to have a real mommy or daddy of her own.


She is in excellent health.  She does have a past history of seizures which are controlled on a very INexpensive medication and hasn't had a seizure in the 6 months she's been on it.


She would be an ideal companion for an older adult who wants company on walks that keep both of you feeling young and staying healthy.


Won't you find it in your heart to invite her into your home?

Update:  8/4/15  ADOPTED

Yogi - Delaware



8-10-2015:  FOSTER HOME NEEDED - Larger, 7 yr old male Chocolate Schipperke. Nice dog. . If interested, please call 757 926-4467 or email and request a foster application.


Yogi is a big boy at 24#'s. Very sweet temperament. He ran over to a volunteer when she entered the yard, rolled over for a belly rub. She was able to pick him up.

The volunteer took her male dog to meet Yogi & the boys had a blast running & playing.


He's neutered, lives with 2 cats, & has been around 2 children 5 & 7 years old & is fine with them.

He is approx. 5-6 years old. I'll know for sure when his owner picks up his records from his vet.

His owner is moving & cannot take Yogi.

Yogi has never shown aggression or bitten anyone.
