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

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 (medium coat). Please contact Diane for more information about this pet. Hi! My name is Folly. I am a standard wirehair dachshund. I came to DDR because my mom and dad were moving to a senior living center and I am not good with strangers. I'm a sweetheart once I get to know you but am very shy and bark incessantly when new people come in. I try to run away and hide in my kennel until I get to know you. I need a fenced yard and another dog to play with. My foster mom says I shouldn't be around children because of my stranger anxiety, I bark at people I don't know and am afraid of people in uniforms. Come meet me to see if I could be a forever friend for you. I am 4 years old, I am a standard dachshund weighing 25 pounds, my adoption fee is $250 plus sales tax

      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. I am 9 1/2 years old, I weigh 17 pounds, my adoption fee is $175 plus sales tax $7.88 = $182.88.

      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
