Posted Breed: Dachshund (short coat). Dolly 9 years old / 10 pounds $150 adoption fee Hi, my name is Dolly. I am a 9 year old, 10 lb. red smooth girl. I think I’m a perfect size for a lap dog. 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. If you would like more information or have questions about Dolly please contact 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.

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.

      Location: Jacksonville, FL
      Posted Breed: Dachshund (medium coat). My name is Charles, but I answer to Charley. I’m a really loving, 10 years-young, frosty faced wire haired dachshund boy. My foster mommy says I’m not really “frosty-faced” it’s more of my coloring. I came to DARE with my son, Bo, who is 7 years old. He is also available, we could be adopted together but we dont have to - we are in separate foster homes now. I like to lie down in a safe area, but close enough to see what you are doing; I don’t want to miss anything. Belly rubs are to best part of my day, so a home with plenty of belly rubs would be my dream home. Hunting is the other thing I want to do all day; I am a dachshund after all and our breed is well known for our hunting skills. CATS are a big NO-NO for me. I also should not be in a home with other small pets like birds, hamsters, ferrets, etc. And lizards don’t stand a chance with me on guard duty. A well fenced yard is a plus because I really like to explore and hunt the lizards. I LOVE kids, especially ones who like to give belly rubs. I am crate trained and okay with sleeping in the crate, but I really LOVE to snuggle and burrow under the covers in the big bed. I promise NOT to take the whole bed; you can have some space too. ;-) I'm very afraid of men. I don't bite or even bark, I just run and hide! My foster mommy keeps telling me no one is ever going to hurt me again, but I'm not so sure yet. But if there is a man in my forever home, and he will be patient with me while I learn to trust him, I bet we could learn to be friends. I really want a forever family of my very own with a fenced yard, maybe some children and as many belly rubs as I can get. If you think I am the perfect addition to your family please fill out at application at www.daretorescue.com. I am being fostered in the Tampa Bay area of Florida.

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.

He has a special diet where he eats grain free or dehydrated food to keep him away from stomach problems. He DOES NOT like cats or other small prey animals (Ferrets, Chickens etc..) The hunt instinct in him is strong and he has been successful in the past when the opportunity to hunt has presented itself. Bo loves to be around people as much possible. He doesn't mind being around other dogs either. However he can be a professional digger if he has a partner in crime that has the same desire to dig. He's not really into toys. He rather be laying down next to his human companion. Bo likes to bark at times especially if he wants to get attention or he just feels like talking. Bo will make a good dog to a home WITHOUT cats or other small animals, he really just needs a human that can give him lots of love and attention.

      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: Jacksonville, FL
      Posted Breed: Dachshund (short coat). *Special needs dog* Hello! I’m Precious but my foster mom calls me Pebbles. I am a beautiful black & tan mini dachshund of 5 years old. I get along with other pets. I live in a foster home with four other dogs and a cat. I am a bit of a princess and like to be snuggled and spoiled, as all dachshunds do. I also like to sleep late! Sometimes my foster dad has to get me out of bed. I like my bed in the closet for naps, quiet time or when the humans are not home. I do have to wear my Pro Collar though, but you can see in the picture that I don’t mind wearing it. What can I say? A princess needs her beauty sleep! I like to go for walks and play with balls and toys too, so I’m not always a couch potato. My ideal home would have an older child for me to play with and/or another dog that will play with me so I don’t get bored. I have Mega-esophagus (ME), but don’t let that scare you. It just means that a part of my esophagus is enlarged. That means I can’t move food down into the stomach like I’m supposed to. I eat my meals sitting upright in a Bailey Chair. It kind of looks like a dachshund-sized high chair. This allows gravity to move the food to my stomach. After I eat, I stay sitting in the chair for a minimum about 30 minutes so my food does not come back up. I'm used to sitting in my chairs after meals and settle right down in the bailey chair to wait. I know that if I sit down in the bottom of the chair I can rest my head on the side and rest. And my chair will come to my forever home with me. I eat when I’m hungry, usually once or twice a day, and am 9 pounds. So we can work out a schedule that works for both of us. I can’t drink water from a bowl on the floor so, while in my chair, I get fluids from a Mature Dog Supplement that my foster mom found at Walmart, of all places. It's like doggie Ensure! And I LOVE IT! I’m an outdoors kinda girl. I like it if you hold me in the pool or I can ride on a float with you. I have Doggles and a Life Jacket. My foster mom says we are going to try going in the Kayak. I can definitely be your on-the-go pal, we just have to be sure I don’t get overheated, just like with any pet. My foster mom says there is an excellent Yahoo support group for Mega-esophagus or ME, so if you adopt me you can make new friends with humans who have a pet like me. And my foster mom will teach you all about feeding me so you’ll know just how to take care of me when you adopt me! We have it down to a good routine so it will be an easy transition. If you’d like to take me home, fill out an application with my name on it. I’m in the Brooksville, FL area and I’m waiting for you!

      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.

      Breed: Dachshund

      Age: Senior
      Location: Jacksonville, FL
      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.
