Please contact Lynn ( for more information about this pet.

All of our dogs are in foster homes and we have no paid staff. If you have questions concerning a specific dog, PLEASE fill out an application and the foster parent will be in touch. We will not arrange any home visits with any of our dogs until your application is processed. Please understand our foster parents are precious to our 2nd Chance family; without them we cannot function, so we do our best to not burden them with multiple appointments. Our foster parents will choose their top 3 applications and arrange home visits with these applicants. The adopter will be chosen at that time. The process can take anywhere from a week to a month. We want to make sure our little furry ones are placed in their "forever home" and never have to go through a rehoming again!

5/27/2014 - Herck has come back to 2nd chance :( Herck had anxiety at his new home. He does not seem to have any problems at his foster home. His foster mommy is self employed so she is not gone 8-9 hours a day. Herck doesn't like a crate. He will go in but he isn't happy about it but at his adopters home he was destructive when not crated so he goes in his crate when his foster mommy has to leave the house and he sleeps in his crate at night so he gets "comfortable in his own skin" and is not dependent on being with a human 24/7.
Herck is a "talker" all talk no bite. Its rather cute once you know he's not going to bite you but is having a discussion about whatever it is he does not like :) Has been around children and has not had any issues.
Due to his separation anxiety we are looking for a home where someone is around more than not.
Intake bio - I don't know what just happened. One minute I was living with my family which included my human mommy and 3 Peek friends and the next I was being dumped at the high kill shelter with my 3 Peek friends and my mommy was going to hospice!
I'm sad that I cannot be with my 3 Peek buddies and they are very scared and confused too but 2nd Chance says I shouldn't worry they are going to find me a family that will love me with another small dog for me to play with if I can't stay with my Peek friends.

Please understand we do not adopt out to families with children under the age of 5. We do not adopt to renters. Some dogs will have fence requirements while others may not.

A dog is a lifetime commitment. The dogs in our system find themselves there, for the most part, because their humans did not have the same loyalty to them as they did to their owners :( We do not take the adoption process lightly, and will do everything in our power to make sure the dog is placed correctly the first time around for your sake and theirs. Thank you for choosing to adopt not shop!
