Both are sweet and a little timid. They use pads. They need work on leash training, but I don’t think that will be a problem. They spent overnight with a 3 year old, another dog and cats. No problems with either. The vet thinks they are about 3-4 months old as their 6 month teeth are not in. I am sure they are going to be great family members. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- We encourage adopters from all over Northern California and the Greater New England Area and will do our absolute best to accommodate you in arranging for transportation if you choose to adopt a dachshund from FDR.

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 (long coat). My Name is: Bella My FDR# is: 2015-532a My age and date of birth is: dob 7/27/11 I am a: Dachshund I am: Female I weigh: 8lbs My colors and markings are: Red, Longhair I have not been spayed. I am housetrained: A work in progress I am crate trained: Yes I am considered special needs: Yes, I have an undiagnosed neurological condition I have these Behavioral Issues: Refer to above I would do well in a home with children under the age of 8 years old: No I enjoy the company of other dogs: Yes I enjoy the company of cats: Unknown My Micro-chip number is: TBA My adoption fee is: $375.00 How to contact my foster home: Marybeth, mjette@nycap.rr.com BIO: Bella is a very special young lady that has undiagnosed neurological issues. Her issues are not IVDD related however veterinarians have been unable to pinpoint exactly what the issues are. She is currently on a small dose of prednisone every day which helps with her issues. Bella is an extremely high energy dachshund but her exercise needs to be constantly monitored because over activity causes her to seize. She is also prone to involuntary body movements (not seizures) when over stimulated. Bella loves to play with other dogs but that has to be seriously limited because of her disability. She is easily excitable and can sometimes be overbearing when playing with other dogs. Bella is a special needs dachshund that needs to be in a home that can afford her ongoing care and is experienced with the breed and caring for a dog with neurological issues. If you are interested in adopting Bella please contact her foster mom directly for additional information. We are happy to share all medical records and history that we have knowledge of and answer any questions you may have. We will be extremely particular to whom she is adopted to make sure that the home is the right fit for Bella. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- We encourage adopters from all over the Greater New England Area and will do our absolute best to accommodate you in arranging for transportation if you choose to adopt a dog from FDR.

      Posted Breed: Dachshund (long coat). My Name is: JoJo My FDR# is: 2013-07360 My age is: 8 years old I am a: Dachshund I am: Male I weigh: 12lbs My colors and markings are: Red and Chestnut with Black overlay I am: Neutered I am housetrained: Yes but I still have an occasional accident so it’s best to keep me on a schedule. I am crate trained: Yes I am considered special needs: No I have these Behavioral Issues: I can get grumbly when picked up or pushed out of the way. I am also extremely possessive of toys so it’s best to not allow toys because I get snappy when you try to take them away. I would do well in a home with children under the age of 8 years old: No I enjoy the company of other dogs: Yes I enjoy the company of cats: No My Micro-chip number is: 985 112 000 870 147 My adoption fee is: $375.00 How to contact my foster home: Laura, chair@fureverdachshundrescue.org BIO: My name is JoJo and I am a gorgeous boy! Everyone who sees me walking likes to compliment me. I am actually a very affectionate boy but I do have some behavioral issues that need some work. I am currently working on these issues so that I can find my furever home but I will need someone who is dachshund savvy to adopt me. My biggest issue was with my crate; I was extremely protective and would lunge at whomever would pass by. Now that I have spent time in my foster home I really like my crate and go into it willingly. I can get kind of growly and can be snappy at times if you try to remove me from my crate so it's best to just open the door and allow me to come out on my own. The crate is my safe space and I am afraid you are going to take me away from it so I try to protect it to the best of my ability. This is not a problem now but because it was a past behavioral issue we feel it is important to mention it. The person who adopts me needs to now how to handle a dachshund and must have experience with the breed. I will not be adopted into a home that has children or small children that visit often. Now for some of the fun stuff about me… I am a champ when it comes to playing fetch! I could chase the ball for hours and I am great at bringing it back. I also get along with all sorts of other dogs both big and small. I even like to play with some of the puppies too! I have a very "Live and let live personality" but I do like my person. I have a favorite person in my foster home and she likes to play fetch with me. I am also really smart and did I mention how gorgeous I am? Just take a look at my cute pictures to see for yourself! I deserve a wonderful furever home with someone who understands my breed. We dachshunds can be stubborn and sometimes very protective and my furever family will need to understand this to be able to give me what I need. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ We encourage adopters from all over the Greater New England Area and will do our absolute best to accommodate you in arranging for transportation if you choose to adopt a dachshund from FDR.
