Gilbert Grape – ADOPTED

Gilbert is a sweet little man of 12 weeks old.  We think he is a Dachshund Chihuahua Mix.  He and his brother Peanut came from a northern BC reservation.  They were born outside, and lived outside until someone came and scooped them up to send them to rescue.  Both puppies had demodex, and are still on the road to a full recovery.  Gilbert’s fur grew back far quicker than Peanut’s.

We know that Gilbert is extremely cute, and has done so well learning to trust people.  He is now very friendly and likes people very much.  He is still a little scared of children however, so a home with older respectful children would be preferred.   Gilbert still has occasional accidents in the house, however that is my own fault for not being more on the ball with the house training.


Gilbert will be neutered, chipped, wormed, flea treated and fully vaccinated.  We are accepting applications now, and will be booking home visits for him.  His adoption donation is $495.  You can email us at for an adoption application or you can download one here on the blog in the Adoption Process Page.

    Hi Kathie…he will be neutered prior to being placed.

    Is there a reason you would want him to be un-neutered?

    I’m so in love Gilbert. I can’t stop thinking about him. My fingers and toes are crossed for him.

    Has Gilbert been adopted yet? I always pictured myself with a larger breed but since my sister rescued her Dachshund…I feel in love and cant stop thinking of Gilbert.
    Look forward to hearing from you.
