More About Dachshund 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.

      Breed: Chihuahua
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Dallas, TX
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Dachshund. DJ is a cute, spunky little guy who is shy at first but is a great friend once he knows you're nice. DJ is a cuddle-puppy at heart. He's small but not too fragile, and he really has some of the best qualities of both a Dachshund and a Chihuahua without the aggression that is sometimes associated with "Chiweenies". This little boy really rates a furever home. He's a good pet, a loving boy, and very cute!

      Posted Breed: Dachshund. Bella is a strong willed senior lady who can be very affectionate with an experienced owner. Once she adjusts to her surroundings, Bella is a very good girl, and she really enjoys walks, a comfy home, and responds well to consistent boundaries. Bella would do best as a single dog since she has a very "take charge" personality.

      Location: Dallas, TX
      Posted Breed: Dachshund. Jerry is a beautiful, long, and low red standard Dachshund. He has had an eye injury but just adds to his unique and regal look. Jerry is young and trainable and does well with praise. Jerry learns commands quickly but didn't come with a lot of practiced social behavior. He is willful and spirited, and takes pride in "getting it right". Jerry is a bit possessive of his owner and is still being taught that he doesn't need to be over-protective. With an experienced owner and patient but consistent reinforcement he will become the best pet ever! He is young, handsome, and ready for a lifetime of loyal loving; Jerry may just be the one for you!

      Breed: Dachshund
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: Dallas, TX
      Posted Breed: Dachshund. Jessica is not immediately trusting, so it takes some time for her to really show her sweet side. Once she does, she is a wonderful little lady. You will never know a more loyal pet than Jessica once she bonds with you, but it will take the several day "getting to know you" period for her to adapt. She would be great for a home without a lot of new people coming and going and where someone is home with her a lot. Like many Chiweenies, Jessica is easily intimidated by larger dogs or dogs who are too "alpha". She needs a patient adopter who knows that she is well worth working with! No children, please.

      verified

      rescue
      Breed: Dachshund
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: Dallas, TX
      Posted Breed: Dachshund. Duke is a cute, plump young adult with a seizure disorder that is easily controlled with oral medication twice daily. He also has a bowlegged back end which gives him a cute little walk but causes no problems for him. Duke is a sweet boy. He takes a little time to decide who he likes, but once he chooses someone he attaches himself like velcro! He isn't exactly in love with young people, so we're hesitant to predict how he would do around children. Duke has a lot of love to share and is a young adult who deserves better than to be dumped at a shelter just because he needs medication. If you can provide the love and care Duke needs (which really isn't that much more than any other dog) you will get a lot of love in return!

      Posted Breed: Dachshund. See Widget's HomepageGo to our official websiteYou can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.Widget is a very active standard Dachshund boy who got his coloring by being a double-dapple. Like many with that genetic combo, though, Widget is deaf. He has got some vision, but not very clear, and he is sensitive to bright sunlight so he should not be exposed to it for long periods of time. Widget is a high-energy boy who likes to play and run. He is a bit jumpy if he doesn't see someone coming, which is natural considering he can't hear anyone approach. Widget has a sweet nature- he likes to give doggie kisses and cuddle when he is in one of his relaxed moments. Widget is a large boy and is also vocal (he can't hear himself bark) so he is not a good choice for young children or apartments. Widget's foster is working with him on sign language. He is a smart boy and learns fast, but he is a youngster so it will take time and consistency for him to master them. In short, Widget is a good boy, a happy, energetic pet, and needs an adopter who will understand and appreciate him for what he is!

      Posted Breed: Dachshund. See Toby's HomepageGo to our official websiteYou can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.Toby is a former 'breeder dog' who was not very socialized to humans for most of his early life. Toby's foster family has been working with him for some time now and he has improved, but he is still very much a work in progress. Toby will need an adopter who can continue to work with him. He is young enough to learn and just needs proper direction, patience, consistency, and love. Toby would do best in a calm, predictable environment. In a perfect world, Toby's adopter would be willing to consider working with a behaviorist to help him be as successful and happy as he deserves to be. Toby is a good boy and it's not his fault his previous 'owner' didn't help him learn to be a pet. Help Toby learn to love being someone's special somebody!

      Breed: Chiweenie

      Location: Dallas, TX
      Posted Breed: Dachshund / Chihuahua / Mixed. See Tio's HomepageGo to our official websiteYou can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.Tio is a super sweet little guy, and we do mean little! He weighs in at 9.8lbs! He is house trained, crate trained, walks very well on a leash and loves sprawl out and take a nap during car rides. He has a very laid back attitude, he shows no interest in my two cats but does like to pay with the other dogs. He doesn't bark too often but when he does it's a quiet throaty bark. He prefers to sleep in his own doggy bed next to the human bed (although he has the option of sleeping in the human bed). He only sleeps in the human bed when there is a thunder storm, he gets nervous and needs some reassurance during thunder. He likes all the humans he's met so far, yet has taken a special liking to my husband - he especially likes to snuggle in next to him on the couch during TV time. Although Tio is very friendly with dogs and humans, he can be grumpy and will growl a little to let you know when he needs his space. Due to this, I believe a home with no small children would be best. We haven't discovered any health issues with Tio. He did need a dental, but that's all been taken care of- he lost a few bad teeth and the many that remain give him a beautiful smile, sweet breath, and a much better-feeling mouth! Tio is a great little guy who deserves a wonderful furever home!

He has just about perfected house training, knows how to use doggie stairs to climb up onto a human bed or couch, and is very active for his age. Jake's only issue when we got him was dental- his mouth was a real mess! Thanks to the miracle of some great dental work, a lot of TLC, and a strong desire to get well, he now has nice breath and his three remaining teeth are clean! Jake already feels much better with all that nasty stuff out of his mouth and he is recovering very nicely from such a major procedure. Jake may not be a puppy, but he sure acts young and he is one of the nicest, best-behaved little guys we've had the pleasure to meet in a long time. Jake will be a perfect pet for someone who appreciates a loving well-behaved senior!
