Posted Breed: Dachshund. We rescued sweet little Maddi from the shelter. She's an adorable Dachshund/ Basenji mix one year old girl. Maddi is extremely cuddly and affectionate without being clingy. Maddi is well behaved, and gets along well with other dogs. She's not at all barky or yippy the way some small dogs can be. Maddi weighs just 11 lbs, is spayed, microchipped, fully vaccinated including rabies, and heart worm tested. She'll make an excellent companion for any household, young or old, large or small. Maddi has the cutest personality, and will bring a lot of happiness into the home! She loves to play with her toys, or sit by your side and watch TV. This devoted little girl is anxious to meet her new family! If you'd like to meet Maddi, email us an adoption application found on dexterfoundation.com Adoption donation $250

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: Lhasa-Poo
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Lhasa Apso / Poodle (Miniature) / Mixed (medium coat). Maya is a sweet 7 yr old Maltipoo girl who almost didn't make it out of a high kill shelter. She sat in the shelter waiting to be rescued, but no one ever came. Maya is well behaved, loves to cuddle and follow you from room to room. She's house trained, quiet and gets along well with her foster siblings. She goes to work with her foster mom, and does great! Maya has cataracts, but can get around just fine. She isn't totally blind, and can still see most things. We had her spayed, fully vaccinated and chipped. Maya likes to get to know someone first before they become too grabby, so she needs to go to an adult only home. Maya was clearly neglected in her previous home, and had really bad teeth. We gave her a full dental cleaning, and many rotted teeth had to be extracted. She eats just fine, and is otherwise a happy girl. She'd make a great companion to a retired person, or someone who works from home. Maya is very affectionate and devoted without being clingy. If you'd like to meet her, please complete our adoption application found on dexterfoundation.com We're only adopting out to the Southern California Adoption donation $250

      Breed: Bichon Frise
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Bichon Frise (medium coat). Murphy is a gorgeous 4 yr old boy looking for a new home. Murphy's mom was just diagnosed with cancer, and doesn't have the time or energy for him. Sadly, Murphy needs to find a new forever home. Murphy weighs just 24 lbs, is healthy, up to date on vaccinations, and is chipped and neutered. He's an alpha, so needs to go to an adult home with an experienced dog owner. Murphy is fully house trained, walks nicely on a leash without pulling, and rides well in the car. Murphy needs time to get to know you first, but quickly warms up. His ideal home would be a single woman, over 40 yrs old, in a house with a yard. Please email contactus@dexterfoundation.com if you'd like to meet him. We're only adopting out to the Southern California area. No children or other dogs. Adoption donation $250

      Posted Breed: Poodle (Miniature) (medium coat). Jasmine is a sweet senior girl, who's family decided they didn't want her anymore, and wanted to dump her at a high kill shelter. Imagine spending your whole life with a family, and then you're simply not good enough for them, and they ship you off to die! We were able to intervene and bring Jasmine to one of our foster homes. We had Jasmine evaluated by our vet, had labs done and a complete physical. She is relatively healthy, and has a lot of years and love to give. Jasmine is very loving, devoted and well behaved. She is fully house trained, walks nicely on a leash, and rides well in the car. She is quiet, mellow and friendly. Jasmine will be a wonderful companion to anyone who wants a happy dog to cuddle! She'll be content to sit by your side while you work on the computer or watch TV, and snuggle if you'd like! Jasmine is 15 yrs old, vaccinated, chipped and spayed. We know that older girls deserve to be loved too! If you'd like to have a devoted and loving best friend, please complete our adoption application found on dexterfoundation.com We're only adopting out to the Southern California area.
