About Headley

Dachshund / Chihuahua
Age: Puppy
Sex: Male

This little character remindes us so much of Hedley Lamarr from Blazing Saddles we just had to give him the same name but spell it a little different (so he doesn't get a big head). Headley is fun, entertaining and thinks he's hot stuff. He will definitely try his best to show other dogs big and small that he is in charge and we're pretty sure they all just laugh at him. After all, he's tiny! Maybe six pounds? That's nearly a teacup dog shaped like a hot dog! Headley is sweet and silly. He is maybe one and a half years old, probably younger, and still very much a puppy. On occasionally he may get a bit mouthy when playing - something for which he responds well to correction. Any children in the home should be old enough to understand he is NOT biting. He LOVES playing with other energetic dogs. He is not a noisy dog but will let you know if he thinks you should go check something out. He sleeps in a crate through the night and does well (not perfect yet) on a leash... squirrel! If you need a some entertainment in your life that comes in a small and furry package then Headley could be the dog for you. Start the adoption process by going to All potential adopters are expected to complete an application and provide pictures of their yard, patio, and/or balcony making sure we can see the fence line and/or railing. The application can be completed and submitted from our website - - the link is found of the Adoption Process page. Applications will be reviewed for approval before setting an appointment to come meet and possibly adopt the dog of interest. In addition, those who live in a rental property are expected to provide proof that they are allowed to have a dog where they live. Each of our rescued dogs has been de-wormed if necessary, de-flea'd (with topical treatment if old enough, and by medicated bath if too young), spayed/neutered, microchipped, is up to date on shots, and has been fully examined by a veterinarian. In addition, each adopted dog comes with a starter baggie of the food it has been eating, a few treats for training purposes, a rawhide chew, a lead and collar, and a folder containing pertinent records.
