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.

      Posted Breed: Dachshund / Terrier / Mixed (short coat). The application is the first step in the adoption process, so if you are interested in adopting please fill out the online adoption application first by visiting our website at www.dachshundpaws.org Hi my name is Maisy. I am about 5 years old. I originally came to the rescue last year with my babies. They were all adopted and I was too, but sadly they do not want me any longer. I did get anxiety when completely left alone, and they were not willing to work with me on that. As you can tell from my pictures I am always pretty happy. I get a little worried that you are not coming back for me, but I need to just be taught that you will come back. If there is another dog in the house, I am totally fine when left alone. I just do not like to be totally alone. I have been abandoned by my family that told me they would love me forever, so you see why I get worried? If you ask me, I am a great catch for someone. I get along great with dogs, cats and kids. I love to be held and loved on and definitely up to sit on the couch and watch a movie. I weigh about 12 pounds. What more can you ask for. My foster mom says I am a wonder dachshund, because she says I wonder what else is in there, yea we do not really know my breed. If adorable was a breed, that is me! I know black dogs have a very hard time getting adopted, but I am hoping my radiant personality will prove the statistics wrong. If you are looking for a sweet and adorable little girl, then stop right here, because that is ME! Maisy's adoption fee: $100 We do not have a kennel or facility to visit, all dogs are kept in foster homes until their forever homes are found.
