Posted Breed: Terrier / Mixed. Meet Smiley! This little cutie is new to rescue and looking for the perfect home! Smiley is a neutered, 9-11 yr. old silky. (Similar to a yorkie but a little bit bigger). He's a quiet boy who loves to be near his person. He's a bit shy and does take a little time to relax. He is doggy door trained and doesn't really like crates. He doesn't have accidents in the dog room but may require a belly band if given free roam of the house until he settles in. Although Smiley gets along with other small dogs and basically ignores cats, he may want to be an only child so he can be the center of attention. He would love a home where mom or dad is home a lot. It doesn't appear as if Smiley has had it easy at all. He's looking for a second chance so he can see how a boy like him should really be treated.

A.K.A. : A mongrel, mixed-breed dog
Overview: A mongrel, mutt, or mixed-breed dog, is a dog that is not the result of breeding within an existing breed or to modify or create a breed and belongs to no breed. In the United States, the term "mixed-breed" is a favored synonym over "mongrel" among many who wish to avoid negative connotations associated with the latter term. The implication that such dogs must be a mix of defined breeds may stem from an inverted understanding of the origins of dog breeds. Pure breeds have been, for the most part, artificially created from random-bred populations by human selective breeding with the purpose of enhancing desired physical, behavioral, or temperamental characteristics. Dogs that are not purebred are not necessarily a mix of such defined breeds. Therefore, among experts and fans of such dogs, "Mongrel" is still the preferred term.

More About Mutt 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.

      Frankie Tayl...

      rescue
      Breed: Dachshund
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Dachshund. ATDR 1694 Frankie Taylor is a very handsome Isabella and Tan Dapple boy who was surrendered to an East Texas shelter when his owner could no longer care for him. He was obese at 26 lbs when he arrived and has lost down to a sleek 14 lbs! We suspect that Frankie was kept at home and not socialized or maybe had a bad experience when meeting a new person. He is very fearful of new people and will snap if someone is too forward with him before he is ready. He prefers to be a one person dog and has bonded with his foster dad. He tolerates his foster mom petting him but will not allow her to provide basic care for him such as clean his ears or give him a bath - foster dad has to do these things for him. Frankie is good with the dogs in his foster home - even the dominant female! He is housetrained and loves being outside. He loves to play in the sprinkler and when his foster parents water the plants he wants to bite at the water coming out of the hose! Frankie is not destructive and doesn't require crating when his foster parents are away from home. He does very well when gated in the breakfast area with a couple of his housemates. Frankie will need an adopter who is experienced in dealing with difficult dogs. He is an extremely loyal and loving companion to his one person but his adopter will have to be willing to keep visitors to the home safe by separating Frankie. At this time we cannot recommend him for a home with children. Do you have the experience to earn the trust of this handsome boy?

      Rosie

      rescue
      Breed: Dachshund
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Senior
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Dachshund. ATDR 1023 UPDATE - 08/24/16 - Sweet senior girl Rosie is such a happy girl! She LOVES to eat more than anything on earth. She is a fan of kibble just as she is cheese or meaty treats. She is a good-natured little girl who loves to merrily trot around the house and yard with her tail up high and nose busily sniffing. She loves to be talked to, and will often trot over to foster mom for a head scratch or a back rub. She is a bit leery of being picked up quickly, and has never tried to venture up the ramp to the big bed---but her eyes are gigantic and have that far-sighted look that we seniors tend to develop, so it is believed she is just easily startled by rapid movement, particularly elevation. However, consultation with the vet revealed she has no actual vision loss, just age-related changes that resign the rest of us to bifocals. She does like to sit in foster mom's lap, but, let's face it-----being a lapdog pales in comparison to being a chowhound, so she will never enjoy it as much as she enjoys mealtime. She gets along well with the other dogs in the household. She minds her own business and never indulges in arguments or disagreements, like *ahem* we all know some crotchety, senior, spayed doxies do. That is just not Rosie. She has a "live and let live" attitude and enjoys her peaceful existence. She is looking for a happy home where she has a comfy bed she can call her own, a regular feeding schedule, and an interesting outdoor space she can explore. That is not too much to ask for a regal dachshund in her retirement years. 02/28/15 Rosie is a very sweet, frosty-faced girl. She is fully vetted but she has had some minor issues to fix. She is HW-, but she had some other parasites and just basic malnutrition that were giving her a dull coat. And she was just a skinny girl! She recently had a major dental so we are expecting her to start gaining weight and shining like a new penny very soon. She is a calm, low-key senior girl. She gets along with the rest of the dogs in the household by presenting an accepting but aloof attitude. She does not snuggle with the other dogs or play chase. Really, all she wants is a soft bed in a quiet area to call her very own. For some reason, she will not use the ramp to go up to the sofa or big bed. So---she likes to stay grounded and in her own corner. She also likes to EAT. She has not done any food guarding, but she chomps her meals down so quickly it appears she may have had some periods in her lifetime when food was hard to come by. She is a standard-sized girl--and needs to put on a pound or two--up from her current 16ish. She is VERY bowlegged and is just a hoot to watch as she trots around the yard. She loves to have her head and ears scratched. She would do very well in a quiet, one-dog household. She just wants a soft bed, a full tummy, and some love and affection.

      Breed: Dachshund-Jack Russell Terrier Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Dachshund / Jack Russell Terrier / Mixed. ATDR 1942 Brownie is an adorable, sweet and playful little guy, with tons of energy! He loves to play with his rope toys or tennis balls, and has a great love of the backyard sprinkler! Brownie has a very Jack Russell personality. He can be mischevious, but he has a very good heart. He can jump super high and he loves to run full speed around the house and back yard. He plays well with his foster brothers and sisters, and loves to snuggle on the sofa or under the covers in the big bed with his favorite person. Brownie recently went through obedience training. He is super smart and learns new commands very quickly. Part of his training was learning to cope correctly with his fear of strangers. Brownie gets nervous around people he does not know, but over the six weeks of training learned that strangers are not all bad. He will always have some fear though, so he would do best in a house that does not get tons of visitors. He will also need a home with someone that has been through training with a dog before, or would be willing to take him to more classes. He does best when his mind is kept at work. Brownie's foster mom will work with his new family to make sure that his transition is a smooth one, and to teach them the commands and training that he has received. He would love to find just the right people who will understand him and make him feel safe. Brownie is an adorable, sweet and playful little guy, with tons of energy! He loves to play with his rope toys or tennis balls, and has a great love of the backyard sprinkler! BROWNIE WILL BE ADOPTED IN THE HOUSTON AREA ONLY

      Posted Breed: Dachshund / Mixed. ATDR 2353 Rocky was found abandoned but tied to a tether in Lampasas, Texas. He was rescued by neighbors and brought to a vet in Austin. Rocky was emaciated, covered with ticks and fleas, and had both heart worms and intestinal worms. Those days are gone and now Rockey is one handsome boy with a beautiful shiney black coat! He is happy and healthy and shows no signs of his earlier life! Estimates put him at 5 years of age. He is very long, still skinny, and has legs just a bit longer than usual. “Longer legs” equals a super-jumper and runner. Rocky will chase and catch tennis balls for an hour at a time. This has become the high point of his evening when he and his buddy Ellie chase balls. Rocky is very affectionate and loves attention. Please consider this loving and very grateful boy!

      Breed: Dachshund-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Dachshund / Mixed. Shooter is a seven year old red standard male with a wanderlust that found him in the local area shelter. Tracking back his microchip, we discovered that Shooter had a colorful past with a family dating back 3 years where he was a youngster pup without a fenced yard and would spend his days roaming the countryside in rural farm country. He spent a lot of time being picked up by animal control and eventually the family was asked to relinquish ownership. Shooter's second family owned a goat farm and again we can only imagine that he didn't have a fence to keep him at home because is is clear from his gait that he has suffered a broken pelvis in recent months that was allowed to heal on its own. Shooter doesn't seem to notice and gets along fine, but he is a little wobbly at times and is probably a lot slower than before the accident. Shooter wound up in another local shelter a year later miles from where his second family lived. We have tried our best to find them but they moved to the Houston area, where he was found and left no forwarding address! Shooter hasn't tried to leave once since he arrived in foster care - I think he kind of likes the structured life and his foster brothers and sisters! He gets two squares and lots of play time! Why would a guy want to leave? We hope the next time Shooter goes anywhere it will be home with the perfect family! That could be one with kids and other dogs, and just the right amount of space to explore, with a big fence of course! Shooter is the best guy ever and deserves so much more than he has had in his short life! If you are in need of a loyal and loving companion, this is your guy! Shooter is happy in the back yard with his buddies and equally comfortable in his soft bed in the house! He is easy going, a bit laid back and starting to play with the other dogs in his home. Please consider this great standard when you are considering adding to your family!

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Dachshund. See Vienna's HomepageGo to our official websiteYou can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.Vienna is an incredibly loving, snuggle-bug. She is 6 years old and has been living with her family for all of those years. Her family now has a one year old now and Vienna's need for undivided attention has led to bad behavior with the other dog in the family. Vienna is absolutely great with the baby, but does not do well with other dogs. She does well with kids, but needs lots of reinforcement with personal space (if she could kiss your face all day, she would). The ideal family for her would be where she's the only pet and can get a lot of loving attention, this may be with a family with kids, a single person that is home a lot, or anyone else who can shower her with lots of love. She is trained on walks, loves to swim, and loves doggie toys. She is house trained, can use a doggie door, she used to be crate trained and would be able to return to that easily enough with treats. She is a mix with a medium breed (we think beagle) and is healthy at 25 lbs. She is very food focused, so it will take some restraint to not over feed her. She has had 2 incidents with IVDD type injuries, but with weight management and some normal Dachshund precautions, her vet thinks she shouldn't have any additional problems
