Posted Breed: Dachshund / Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat). Bailey is a special little dachshund. She is only 3 years old but in those few years has experienced abuse that, while we do not know the details, certainly shows in her behavior. We believe that Bailey is a good girl who has had a rough start in life but most definitely deserves a forever home that is as special as she is! Bailey would really like a calm, quiet home of her very own. She is slow to trust, and does seem to be more attached to women, but is okay with men. She will need time in her new home to become comfortable and gain trust. She will sometimes bite strangers, as she has not learned to trust them and due to memories of her past abuse, so she you will need to remove her from those situations. She must never be crated as her abuse had something to do with a crate, though we are not sure what, and causes her immense anxiety. She will require a home with no children (and no plans to have them in future years as it would displace her from her home). She does use the doggie door but will have an accident if left home alone too long. As a special needs dachshund Bailey’s adoption fee is $150. She is being fostered in Jacksonville, FL. Please fill out an application with her name on it if you’d like to give Baily the quiet, safe, loving home she deserves. Please scroll to bottom of page for additional info about me and my email contact. If you know that I am your forever dog please fill out an online application at www.daretorescue.com and put my name on it. If you can not adopt me but would like to help DARE pay for my care while I am in their care please send check or money order made payable to DARE to: DARE 4495-304 Roosevelt Blvd. PMB 179 Jacksonville, FL 32210 You can also contact us at info@DAREtoRescue.com Even if you do not see a dog that matches what you're looking for, you may fill out a no obligation application and we will work to find a match for you. We receive dogs into foster care almost daily, so it is impossible to have every available or soon-to-be-available dog on the website.

More About Chiweenie Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Posted Breed: Dachshund (short coat). Jared is a sweet 7 year old, 11 pound dachshund. He came to DARE from a shelter who confiscated him as part of an abuse case. It is not the life any dog deserves but DARE is making sure Jared has a good life now. We want him to have a Great life, but that is dependent on YOU! You see, Jared’s Great life includes a forever home of his very own. Jared had a back injury at some point in his life that was left untreated. DARE provided him treatment, though it was far past the point where surgery was an option, and he is now walking with a cute little wobble. He does not have bladder or bowel control so a home that understands this is a must. He would love to be an only dog in a quiet home but he is okay with other dogs and might be okay with cats. He is an absolute love and cherishes large amounts of attention from his humans.

I am scared of most men so I would really like to have a Mom be my new family. I get along very good with small dogs, love big nice dogs, and I’m good with cats. I would be good with older children who will treat me kindly and with respect. I am very mindful and come when called. I am working on my potty skills, so I will need my new family to be patient and kind. I love to sleep in the big bed under the covers. My favorite treat is a rawhide chew. I am afraid of thunder and loud noises but I am sure I would be okay if my new family snuggles and comforts me. I am looking for my forever home. Are you my new forever family? I promise I will love you forever. Dolly is being fostered in the Jacksonville, Fl area. She is up-to-date on shots, spayed, and on heartworm and flea preventative.

      Posted Breed: Dachshund (short coat). Penny 2 Hi I'm Penny a spunky & loveable dachshund. I'm a very young at heart 10 year old, 16 pound, purebred, smooth haired female bundle of joy. My previous owners no longer wanted me, so they left me at the local shelter which was very scary for me. I don't understand why because my foster mom says I'm a very sweet gal and I'm also potty trained. Fortunately, DARE got me out of there & rescued me. I am spayed, up-to-date on all my vaccines & am micro-chipped. I also just had a dental! So now I'm as healthy as can be! I love being near people & also get along with the other dogs here. Foster mom says I have a keen hunting instinct and doesn't think I would do well in a home with small non-dog pets like bunnies, hamsters, chickens etc. and definitely NO cats either. I do like to play with other dogs & am very frisky, but would also do well as the only pampered pooch in the family. I am crate trained & walk very well on a leash. My only fault is that I have been known to slip out of my harness now & then if you aren't careful. Hey, what can I say, I love to run! For this reason, I absolutely need a secure fenced in backyard. But I also love to cuddle & give lots of doxie kisses! I am being fostered in the Orlando area and am looking for my new family who will love me furever. You can email my foster mom with any additional questions about me at cgriffith32821@aol.com. If you think I am the new furry family member you've been looking for then please fill out an adoption application at www.daretorescue.com & put my name on it!

      Breed: Dachshund
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Senior
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Dachshund (short coat). My name is Shorty. I’m a miniature dachshund with short red hair & frosty face. The humans think I’m around 14 years old. I recently had a dental cleaning, spay & heart worm check that was negative so I’m all vetted and ready for a forever home of my very own! I’m a very loving little girl, but I do tend to prefer men. I’m a little hand shy so I will cower when you first go to give me attention, but when I knows that I won’t be hurt, I will relax and let you love me. I love to go for long walks and rides in the car. I sleep in the human bed every night, snuggled under the blankets, just as close to my foster dad as I can get. I do have accidents once in a while, so my foster parents try to encourage me to go out every couple of hours. Please be patient with me as I learn. I’ve only been with my foster parents a couple weeks and they say I’m adjusting a little more each day. I’ve learned to bark when the other dogs bark. I am protective of my food so I get a little snappy if the other dogs get close to my food. I’m a little possessive of the humans too. My foster mom says I’m a little sassy but she also says they have no idea what kind of life I had before that might be the cause for my behaviors. My foster parents give her lots of love, attention and belly rubs that I love so much. My foster mom says I might have a little cat in me since one of my favorite places to nap during the day is on the back of the sofa. I love my foster parents but I dream of a day I can have a forever home of my own! If you would like to make me a permanent part of your family please fill out an application with my name on it. I’ll be here waiting!! Or if you have any questions regarding Shorty you can email mimidoxielover@aol.com. Please scroll to bottom of page for additional info about me and my email contact. If you know that I am your forever dog please fill out an online application at www.daretorescue.com and put my name on it.
