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: Sioux Falls, SD
      Posted Breed: Dachshund (short coat). My foster mom says my name should really be sweet cause that is what I am. I am looking for a home of my very own where my family will love me and be patient with me. I am pretty shy right now - but I love all the attention I get. I have one back leg that is short due to an accident in my past - but I don't want to talk about that. I am looking forward to a future with my new family. I really need a fence because I am not used to a leash at all. My name is Finn and I am about 11 pounds. My adoption fee is $250 plus tax of $11.25 for a total of $261.25.

      Posted Breed: Maltese (medium coat). Please contact Peggy for more information about this pet. Hi! My name is Scooter. I am one year old and am very energetic. I need a fenced yard as I am quite a door dasher. I am good with the other dogs in my foster home but I can be territorial when I am on the couch or on the bed. I would do great as an only dog. I came to DDR as I was adopted out by another rescue but was returned after I nipped at a little girl when she picked me up when I was chewing on a bone. Can you be my forever home? I am one year old, I weigh 9 pounds, my adoption fee is $275 plus sales tax $12.38= $287.38

      Location: Sioux Falls, SD
      Posted Breed: Dachshund (medium coat). Please contact Diane for more information about this pet. Hi! My name is Seery. DDR doesn't know much about my past, I was a stray out on my own for a very long time before ending up in a shelter. I was infested with fleas and worms so I was in pretty bad shape. It took quite awhile for me to trust my foster mom and others. I'm very happy now as I got some great medical care and am feeling much better. I take a bit to get to know new people and to trust them so you have to take it slow with me. Once I trust you I love just hanging out on the couch or following you around in the yard. I am 7 years old, I weigh 12 pounds, my adoption fee is $250 plus sales tax $11.25 = $261.25

      Location: Sioux Falls, SD
      Posted Breed: Dachshund (short coat). Izzie is a beautiful little girl that was taken to the Humane Society due to a back injury. I met Izzie and decided to have her evaluated by Dr Heidi, we decided that she was a candidate for back surgery. She is doing well with her therapy, but has a long way to go. Izzie is learning to use her back legs again and is a very determined girl. The sparkle in her eyes and her spirit make you push that much harder to help her do her therapies to strengthen her legs and back. Will you be Izzie's sweetheart and sponsor her in this most difficult time? Izzie Update. The Iz Bomb is the nickname I'm currently using as Izzie is the Bomb! Everyone else is groaning about the snow, but I've found it to be a godsend as Izzie doesn't like a cold bottom . . . yes she can feel the cold! Since the snow has come Izzie doesn't sit as much as she stands and is taking more steps than ever. She seems to sense how proud I am of her and would do anything to get to where ever Doug is! She's done more in her cart now that Mollie has arrived as Mollie races around like a bat out of hell! Izzie is going to walk again, I can feel it! Keep Iz Bomb in your thoughts and prayers. She needs lots of angels out there pulling for her! Izzie loves her new cart from K9 Carts http://www.k-9cart.com/ Check out the Iz Bomb's video in her cart! Izzie is 10 years old, she weighs a little over 10 pounds, her adoption fee is $175 plus sales tax $7.88= $182.88

      Breed: Dachshund
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Sioux Falls, SD
      Posted Breed: Dachshund (short coat). Please contact Diane for more information about this pet. My name is Toby. I am a very handsome boy. My family really loved me very much and took wonderful care of me. I ended up hurting my back and needing surgery. They weren't able to provide the care I needed so they did the best thing they could for me. They brought me to DDR. I had my back surgery and it went very well. My foster mom is very experienced in taking care of dogs like me so I will get exactly the care I need. Right now I need sponsors too to help with all the care I will need. My name is Toby. I weigh about 17 pounds and I am 7 years old. I need help paying my medical bills...well, DDR does. My back surgery was very expensive for a small rescue group and now I start my rehab, I'm really hoping to walk again but it will take time and patience. Can you be my friend and help support me while I recuperate? I'm still working on my rehab and my foster mom says I'm ready for a home of my own! If you have that special place in your heart to work with a dachshund in a cart....I'm your guy! The girls will teach you all of my rehab exercises and they are still hoping I will walk on my own again as I'm doing so well and have deep pain sensation back. All I want for Christmas besides a forever home of my own, is potty pads to help keep my bed dry at night and so my foster mom can express me in the house out of the cold. I'd also love gift cards to All City Pet Care East for my ongoing medical expenses as well as my prescription dog food I now need to help my kidneys. I am 9 years old, I weigh 17 pounds, my adoption fee is $175 plus sales tax $7.88 = $182.88.
