Posted Breed: Dachshund (medium coat). Adoption Fee: $175 plus sales tax. 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 8 years old, I weigh 12 pounds, my adoption fee is $175 plus sales tax $7.88 = $182.88

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). Adoption Fee: $175 plus tax. Please contact Doug or Diane for more information about this pet. Hi! I'm Barney. I am a very happy boy, I like being with my person. I can get a tad protective if you allow me to, I just want to protect the ones I love, which is pretty typical for a dachshund. I'm a big explorer so I need a fenced yard so I don't wander off following my nose and get lost. I go in for a dental on Valentine's Day. Dr Paul wants to look at a couple other things medically before DDR lets me go to a new home of my own. Update 3/3/2018 I am feeling very good now that I have had a dental and a couple of bad teeth pulled. Dr Paul says the spot on my liver they saw on ultrasound was like a big blood blister and the tissue samples came back as normal liver cells....YAY! I will be ready to go to a furever home of my own after I get my oral sutures rechecked next week. I am good with other dogs, I am a food hound so you must feed me on a schedule and measured amounts. I can be food aggressive with other dogs. I lived with an elderly woman until she had to go to the nursing home, I then lived on the farm with a couple that loved me very much but I started getting too protective of them and they felt they couldn't keep me anymore. I need boundaries and to be walked on a leash. I will run after people and nip at their ankles to protect my people and my space. Are you that special person for me? My name is Barney, I am 10 years old, weigh 16 lbs, my adoption fee is $175 plus sales tax $7.88= $182.88

      Posted Breed: Dachshund (medium coat). Adoption Fee: $250 plus sales tax. 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 need a strong pack leader, a person who understands my issues and will work with me. 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 would do best as an only dog. 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. I am terrified of thunderstorms, fireworks and hide from the vacuum cleaner. I do well with small dogs once I get to know them but am terrified of big dogs. 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

I came to DDR with Bear, he was adopted by a family with kids, I didn't stay with him because I don't like kids being rowdy. Our owner passed away and we had no where to go. Our vet, Susan, really loved us and was determined to find a place for us. I would love an adult only home, a fenced yard to hunt in, and a person that likes to hang out with me on the couch in the evening. Would you like to be my forever home, I'm a pretty easy going girl :) I am a very young 13 yrs 10 months old, I weigh 16.6 pounds, my adoption fee is $175 plus sales tax $7.88= $182.88.

I came to DDR because my family moved to the country and I became a pack hunter with my brother. I did well in town in a fenced yard but once I was in the wide open spaces my natural instinct to hunt became very strong and I was vicious with cats and more. I must have a fenced yard to keep me and other animals safe. Can you be my furever home? I am a very active 10 year old, I weigh 15 pounds, my adoption fee is $175 plus sales tax $7.88= $182.88
