Why are there so few dogs available?

Almost Home Dachshund Rescue Society members may have more dogs available for rescue than those featured on the site. Often, as soon as a dog enters foster care and is evaluated and provided necessary veterinary care, it moves immediately to a forever home that was pre-approved and just waiting for him or her to become available.

We encourage you to please complete our online adoption application so members are aware of who you are and the specific kind of dachshund in which you are interested. We can then begin your approval process and let you know, when the right dog is rescued, that s/he is waiting for you!

Of course, this doesn’t mean you shouldn’t continue to watch this site for new arrivals, as often the dog we think we are waiting for is very different from the one with whom we fall in love!

Name: Toby & Penny

Location: Bensalem, PA

Adoption Fee
: $425.00/pair
Toby and Penny are two of the nicest doxies you will ever meet! Penny (pictured left) is a red smooth female, 8, and Toby (pictured above) is a sable black overlay long hair boy, and is 4. Toby is quite a bit overweight, but measured amounts of high quality canine cable and exercise will have him back in shape in no time!

Both are sweet, good, wonderful companions, and so full of doxie personality. They love to cuddle up with each other -- Penny gets a small portion of their doggie bed! She loves to be held, kissed, and loved on by her person (who doesn't love to be cuddled!?). Toby spends a good bit of time rolling on his back with pleasure. He doesn't mind a belly rub or two while he's at it, either! The summer cut of his long hair is so very soft to the touch. And they really enjoy the company of other dogs. They are very much bonded, so sweetly take care of each other. Yet they have lots of love to share. They really are special doxie furkids.

If you'd like to bring these babies into the fold of your arms, please contact their foster mom and complete an adoption application online indicating your preference. If you have never adopted through a rescue organization before, please read Adopting Through AHDRS.

Name: Oscar

Location: Indiana

Adoption Fee
: $200.00
Oscar is a very handsome 6 year old tweenie that weighs in at 12 pounds. Oscar was put on Craigslist, but the people that ended up with him were not very well educated on dachshunds and their back problems. The people were told he had a broken rib and that was why he had pain pills, and when they took him home and let him run wild, he went completely down.

Horrifyingly, the girl's father told her to get rid of him or he was going to shoot him. At that point, his it looked like his only option was the shelter where he wouldn't have had much chance at survival. A friend of hers contacted rescue and we were told that he had been stepped on by a horse and had a leg injury. We got copies of all vet records and all of them stated what the real problem was--IVDD.

Oscar has been on strict crate rest for four weeks and has a couple more to go, but he is doing fairly well. He is the happiest boy! Oscar is completely crate trained and he has never soiled his crate. He is great with other dogs and people, but with his back issues he should not go to a home with young children. When Oscar arrived at his foster home, he was totally down and dragging his rear legs. He never lost control of his wildly wagging tail or his bladder and bowels though! With crate rest and meds, he is up and walking again, although he is not very coordinated yet. He looks like a camel at times but he sure tries hard!

Oscar has now been neutered and received a much needed dental cleaning as well. He is up to date on all his vaccines and heartworm and flea preventative. Oscar needs a home that understands IVDD and can work with him to continue to heal. We do have a cart that we will send with him when he is adopted, just in case he needs it at some point.

Oscar is a very personable boy and would love to have a home of his own. You must be close enough that you can meet him before adopting. This little guy is really easy to love!

If you'd like to make her your faithful companion, please contact his foster mom and complete an adoption application online indicating your preference. If you have never adopted through a rescue organization before, please read Adopting Through AHDRS.

Name: Lucy

Location: Timberlake, NC

Adoption Fee
: $250.00
http://www.almosthomerescue.org/available/Lucy2.JPG
http://www.almosthomerescue.org/available/Lucy1.JPGSweet Lucy is a 6 pound, 6 year old mini female who has had a tough life so far and is looking for someone to pamper her furrever. She bounced around from a hoarder's home, then turned into a shelter, where a rescue group foster her until she came to Almost Home. This sweetheart takes a while to warm up to you, understandably so, but once she does she is your constant shadow.

Lucy loves to snuggle in the big bed at night and plays with her foster siblings, so having a brother or sister will not be a problem. This smart smart girl is housebroken and has already mastered the doggie door so she can get herself outside. Lucy quite enjoys running around the fenced in yard at her foster home! She will walk on a leash but isn’t particularly fond of it, as she will freeze from noises and people that she is not accustomed to and it will be important that her new human continue to show her how amazing learning to walk on a leash will be--oh, the places she can go! Lucy does not particularly like men as there apparently is something from her past that she has yet to get over, so it will take someone with patience to help her understand that not every man is going to abuse her.A new home with a fenced in yard is preferred, and adopters in NC are preferred. Little Lucy has a little tail, fit for her size--it's only about 1 inch long! We don't have any information on what happened to her tail, but we do know that it doesn't detract from her beautiful personality. Lucy is spayed and microchipped.

Darling Lucy would make the greatest friend for you. If you'd like to make her your faithful companion, please contact her foster mom and complete an adoption application online indicating your preference. If you have never adopted through a rescue organization before, please read Adopting Through AHDRS. NC adopters are given preference.

Name: Roxie

Location: Bensalem, PA

Adoption Fee
: $325.00
Roxie the doxie is a very happy girl and is just as sweet as she can be! She is 18 months young, just a wee little thing! She's 15 pounds, but a little thin. She could gain a pound or so. (She said that's a GOOD problem to have! Who doesn't like to eat?)

Roxie and her four puppies were left at a kill shelter. All of her babies were adopted, but Roxie was left behind, all alone. She enjoys the company of other dogs, cats, and people of all ages. Roxie loves to play and cuddle equally and so deserves to have her own family!

If you want Roxie to join your family, please contact her foster mom and complete an adoption application online indicating your preference. If you have never adopted through a rescue organization before, please read Adopting Through AHDRS.

Name: Snoopy

Location:  Central North Carolina

Adoption Fee
: $150.00
Hi, my name is Snoopy. I’m a 10-year-old red smooth male dachshund. I have such a sad story to tell—my owner, who was my best friend in the whole world, passed away. All of those years of “happily ever after,” and one day I woke up with no owner to turn to. As you can tell by my good looks, I’m not meant for that type of life, so this nice lady from dachshund rescue picked me up and took me home with her. She tells me that everything is going to be okay, and so I’m just taking a leap of faith and trusting that she knows what she’s talking about.

Nowadays, I live at her house with two other dachshunds and a Chihuahua/Corgi mix that she calls an “honorary dachshund.” Let’s be real, here. There’s nothing dachshund about that dog, but I’ll pretend too if that’s what makes the dinner bell ring. Since I’ve gotten settled in, we’ve all become good friends, and I love to cuddle with all of my four-legged brothers and sisters and my foster mom’s four-year-old little boy, who thinks I hung the moon. (My foster mom wants me to remind you, though, that even though I’m nice to the little ones, there should always be an adult around to supervise time spent between dogs and children—this just keeps everybody, including little ‘ole me, safe.) In the mornings, my foster family and I have breakfast together before heading outside for a romp in the big, fenced yard. Afterwards, the other four-leggers and I enjoy a morning snooze in our comfy crates while my foster mom goes to work. Over her lunch break, she comes home to let us out. Some days, I just can’t wait that long and have an accident in my crate, but I know where I’m supposed to do my business. Over lunch, we play ball or lie out in the sun on the deck. Then it’s time for a tasty treat to tide us over until supper. At night, she and her little boy come home, and we all talk about our big day over dinner. She says I’m her daily dinner bell because I dance around my food bowl and tap it with my paw as a reminder. If my water bowl is empty, I pick it up and bring it to her. She laughs, but seriously- proper nutrition and hydration is a must! Once the sun goes down, we all pile up on the couch for tv time. Sometimes, she will pull a nutritious treat out and ask me to barrel roll. I run around in a tight circle, roll over and then sit up and beg for it. It makes her laugh so hard!

My foster mom says she loves taking care of senior dachshunds because we are all so calm and mannerly. Don’t let my age fool you, though. I turn on my turbo-jets when I get outside and can run just as fast and for just as long as my two-year-old foster pal, Carlyle! I also dance excitedly every time she enters the room. I don’t jump on her legs, though. (That’s rude). If she baby talks me, I “talk” back to her in a precious, hoarse little voice. I am also baby gate trained and (drum roll, please!) HOUSE TRAINED! I do have to stay on a regular schedule, though. Otherwise, I might slip up. I walk well on a leash, ride nicely in the car and snuggle really well if you need a pal to keep you company in the big bed at night. Not to brag or anything, but snuggling is my specialty!

We’re not all perfect, though, so I have a few skeletons that I’ll allow to come on out of my closet. Are you ready? Here goes- I have a heart murmur, but the vet says that it’s no big deal. I don’t show any symptoms and, because of that, I don’t require medication for it. That being said, if I ever need medicine for it, the daily pills are pretty cheap. I also have a habit of digging for treasures outside by the fence if I get bored. Because of this, I need to be in a securely fenced yard with an owner who will check the premises from time to time to make sure I’m not getting close to digging my way out. My foster mom is making a lot of progress with me on curbing this behavior, and I seldomly do it anymore, but I still need a good reminding about it every once in a while.

I am neutered, up-to-date on vaccinations, heartworm negative and on preventative. I have also recently had a dental. Since my neuter procedure, I’ve had a bit of an upset stomach, but my foster mom has me on a round of antibiotics, which the vet thinks will clear it right up. So far, it is doing a great job! I would really enjoy having a family of my own to love on and a cozy bed to retire in at night. I would go best to a home where my owners are home most of the time, as that is what I am used to. Who knows- maybe we can take up a hobby together! Whittling? Knitting? Whatever you want to do, I’ll sit right beside you and coach you along.

If you’re looking for a forever pal like myself, contact my foster mom and complete an adoption application online indicating your preference. If you have never adopted through a rescue organization before, please read Adopting Through AHDRS. Talk to you soon!

Name: Elsie

Location: Radnor, PA

Adoption Fee
: $225.00
Say hello to doxie mix Elsie, a 7-year old, 20-pound doxie/beagle -- a smart girl, who knows basic commands and has quite a vocabulary! Elsie loves attention and to be with her person.

The ideal home for Elsie would be with a human mom with a laid back lifestyle. Elsie enjoys the company of other dogs and wouldn't mind having a sibling or two! She walks well on a leash and is looking forward to going on strolls with her new huam. She does have a bit of food aggression, though, so needs to be fed by herself. Please reach out to give Elsie the chance to experience what most of us take for granted.

If you'd like to offer Elsie a safe place to land, please contact her foster mom and complete an adoption application online indicating your preference. If you have never adopted through a rescue organization before, please read Adopting Through AHDRS.

Name: Rocky

Location: Burlington, NJ

Adoption Fee
: $275.00
Rocky is the cutest 2 year old, 15-pound long hair doxie/papillon  boy, who is looking for his forever home after getting lost and ending up in a shelter. He is friendly, loving, and bit shy at first (but wouldn't you be, too?).

Rocky will be your absolute best, loyal friend once he gets to know you! He is also great with kids and likes to play with the toddler in his foster home. Like his namesake, this Rocky has gone from rags to riches and wants to share with you!

If you want to make Rocky feel on top of the world, please contact his foster mom and complete an adoption application online indicating your preference. If you have never adopted through a rescue organization before, please read Adopting Through AHDRS.

Name: Scooter

Location: Pocomoke, MD

Adoption Fee
: $200.00
Scooter is a very sweet, 7 pound little guy who needs lots of love and kisses. Because he came from a home that kept him crated almost full time, he can be skittish at first, but with a firm and gentle approach, he will be your friend for life.

He is house trained and will alert when he needs to potty. Scooter currently spends time daily in a crate for short periods of time and does not mind. He plays with his foster brothers and sisters, but really, just wants to lap to spend time in.

Because of Scooter's skittishness, it is essential he goes to a home with no small children. He will need a furever home that can be patient and work on approaching gently.

Please consider Scooter as your new friend, he's a total cutie who would love nothing more than to love you for always! If you are interested in Scooter, please contact his foster mom and complete an adoption application online indicating your preference. If you have never adopted through a rescue organization before, please read Adopting Through AHDRS.

Name: Lacy

Location: Pocomoke, MD

Adoption Fee
: $200.00
Lacy is a sweet, 6 year old girl who will have you wrapped around her little paw the minute you meet her. She has a nickname “Whoo Whoo,” because that’s the sound she makes when she hops around to get your attention. She is a very quiet girl, who will bark occasionally when someone is in the yard.

Lacy has the most adorable face that matches her personality. She is very sweet and gets along great with her foster brothers and sisters. She does well meeting new friends and is very engaged in what you are doing.

Lacy has had back surgery in the past, and has a stiff back-end gate now. She can traverse a few steps on her own, and does very well up and down the doggie door ramp. She cannot jump on furniture or stand on her back legs. Which is actually good news, as it prevents more back injury, and she won’t be snoozing on the couch all day!

Lacy has been undergoing acupuncture treatments to help loosen up her back leg muscles and tighten up her bladder. She is doing very well with both, and would do well in the future to have periodic “tune-ups” if needed. Lacy does have a small bladder control issue due to the back injury. Since she tends to be a bit submissive, she also may have a bit of a piddle when first meeting someone or when she gets over excited.

If you are looking for a new friend to help you watch the latest movies and be your new snugglebug and you think Lacy is your girl, please contact her foster mom and complete an adoption application online indicating your preference. If you have never adopted through a rescue organization before, please read Adopting Through AHDRS.

Name: Jaxson

Location: Pocomoke, MD

Adoption Fee
: $175.00 + $11.00 microchip fee
Jaxson is a very active older boy (he is 9 years young!)who loves his squeaky toys and tennis balls. He loves taking long walks and does very well on a lead. If you prefer not to walk, Jaxson enjoys snuggling on the couch as well. He does a great job alerting when someone is at the door, but he settles down quickly.

Jaxson gets along great with his foster brothers and sisters, but does prefer to eat by himself. He is currently being fostered with two small children and loves them to bits! Jaxson is learning so many new commands. Whoever said you can't teach an old dog new tricks didn't meet Jaxon! He is learning stay, wait, easy, come, sit, etc.

Jaxson is housetrained, however, will have occasional accidents if not kept on a very tight schedule. His potty training has improved greatly while in foster care, and continues to improve daily.

Jaxson is a great dog with a very versatile personality. He would do well in a home that is busy and athletic, but he will do equally as well in a home that's quieter and snuggly. Jaxson will melt your heart the first minute you meet him. If you're ready for a full time friend that will love forever, Jaxson is your boy!

If you're interested in being Jaxon's snuggle buddy, please contact his foster mom and complete an adoption application online indicating your preference. If you have never adopted through a rescue organization before, please read Adopting Through AHDRS.

Name: Fenske

Location: Central NC

Adoption Fee
: $200.00
Sweet Fenske just KNEW a mistake had been made when she landed in an animal shelter where she was dumped by her family. This 5 year old longhair chocolate miniature dachshund has no reason for being dropped off in a local shelter. She is always friendly to everyone she meets, is great with the human kids in her foster home and is almost perfect in her house manners with a little help! When her foster mom showed up to bounce her out of the doggie jail she gave a look as if to say “FINALLY, someone has come to correct this situation — I am being freed”!

On her surrender form to the shelter it was listed that Fenske had a history of seizures, but apparently this is not the reason she was surrendered as they were well controlled since 2011 according to the former vet that used to treat Fenske when she was in her former home. Since coming into rescue Fenske has not been on medication (as she was not surrendered with the medicine she was taking) and she has not had any seizures in her foster home for the month she has been in rescue. It is quite possible that her seizures were triggered by the food or chemicals in her former home — and that a change of food and environment has cleared her of whatever was triggering the seizures. Whatever it might be — Fenske’s forever home should be aware that she has a history of mild seizures that were very easily controlled and be prepared to discuss future treatment should she have another seizure. Fenske is otherwise in excellent health and is one of the sweetest fosters her foster home has ever seen! She adores children and does very well with the other dachshunds in her foster home. The former home listed Fenske as crate trained, house trained, great with kids, cats and other dogs — so we will just never know why Fenske ever landed in the county shelter! She doesn’t chew or bark much and she loves to sit in a lap or go for a ride. She is one of the most perfect dachshund companions!

Fenske is current on all vaccinations, on heart worm prevention and spayed — now just searching for the perfect forever home ready to commit to her as a family member where she can live out her many years to come! She adores her family and so deserves a family that equally adores her…seeing her for the true treasure she is! Local applications are preferred as Fenske will not be put on a transport. If you do not live within driving distance of Central North Carolina, transportation should be considered as all adopters are required to travel to get Fenske. If you are interested in Fenske, please contact her foster mom and complete an adoption application online indicating your preference. If you have never adopted through a rescue organization before, please read Adopting Through AHDRS.

 

Name: Harry & Larry

Location: West Virginia

Adoption Fee
: $200
 Harry and Larry are two little "country boys" lookin' for love in all the RIGHT places! These boys are a bonded pair, found abandoned together in the middle of a dark rural highway in southern Ohio.

Both boys were found patiently waiting together, hoping for their owner to return. Thankfully, they were scooped out of the road before tragedy could befall them and they were taken to a vet to check for micro-chips. There, the vet staff realized these sweet boys had been grossly neglected-- both were in need of a lot of vetting and repair.

Almost Home Dachshund Rescue and the kindness of generous donors (read more on our Can You Help Me Page) have helped both boys get vetted and treated, and assisted them as they recovered from horrible mouth infections that threatened their lives, among many issues: Harry was heartworm positive, Larry had an extreme flea allergy and was practically hairless, neither had been neutered, and their vets and specialist feel they may have NEVER been to a vet in their lives. Harry & Larry are likely brothers and are constantly together. They are approximately 15lbs each and around 10 years old. They are now current on vaccinations, neutered, heartworm negative, on monthly prevention, and have successfully been treated for infections and all the issues from neglect. They are finally ready to find their forever family (probably the first loving family they've ever known!) to live the rest of their precious lives in love, attention, safety, and health.

Both Harry and Larry love to snuggle! They love attention, petting, and belly rubs! They get along with unaggressive dogs and cats, love children, and love people--even strangers! We didn't hear Harry bark for months because he was in such pain with his horribly infected mouth--through it all, he always remained so sweet, and never complained. They are watch dogs, but don't bark often. They continue to need a consistent potty schedule, but are doing great and are quite obedient. They are crate trained, and aren't disruptive or destructive (minus a few dog toys!). They eagerly want to please you and they wait patiently for your attention. They will sleep on a dog bed together in any room you wish, and will be thrilled anytime you would invite them on the couch or in the bed with you. All they want is to be with you.

Harry & Larry depend on each other through every new experience. They are bonded for life and need to stay together. They are very easy to care for, and so easy to love. They just need someone who realizes they have been short-changed in life until recently, and is willing to show them love and be loved, by these little country boys! Are you that special person? If you'd like to know more and are looking for love, please contact their foster mom and complete an adoption application online indicating your preference. If you have never adopted through a rescue organization before, please read Adopting Through AHDRS.

Name: Otis & Ollie

Location: Indiana

Adoption Fee
: $150 each
Ollie (red collar) and Otis (blue collar) are very sweet 7 year old boys. These Dachshund/Jack Russel mixes are long and lean, with longer legs. Both are on the skinny side and could stand to gain a bit of weight (don't we wish we'd all hear that!?). Ollie is 14.6 pounds and Otis is only 13.8 pounds. Their rescue day came when they were found in a bitter January cold snap, living outside with a Jack Russell (which we believe to be either the father or mother of the boys). The owners were told to take the dogs inside because of the cold but they refused to listen. The boys' story only becomes more heartbreaking from there. The owner did not take the dogs inside and the third dog froze to death. The body was still attached to the chain, lying in the dog house, when Ollie & Otis were rescued. These two have certainly earned the right to be pampered and loved for the rest of their lives!

Both boys are very sweet and love attention--especially belly rubs! Otis loves toys and chewies, although Ollie isn't as crazy about them. It is probably best if Ollie & Otis were adopted into seperate homes--they tend to get jealous of each other when they're getting attention and then they can act out. They would probably do best in a home where they can be the center of attention, or possibly with a female companion. They are currently in a foster home with other males and are doing well. They would do best with older children who will respect their space.

They are currently still being housetrained and are working hard to succeed! They have both been neutered and been vaccinated, and are heartworm free! With lots of love and patience, these two boys will make wonderful companions.

With their longer legs, they would make great running buddies for someone that is active. They just want to feel safe and warm and loved. These boys are had a horrific beginning to their lives and we want to be sure they get all the love they will ever need from now on.

If you are interested in being their safe haven, please email their foster home and complete an adoption application online indicating your preference. All applicants should consider transportation if located beyond a few hours drive from Central North Carolina. If you have never adopted through a rescue organization before, please read Adopting Through AHDRS.

Name: Lilly

Location: Catlettsburg, KY

Adoption Fee
: $125.00
This little mix dachie is Lilly, about 5 years old and approximately 15 pounds. Lilly came from a home where dad developed terrible allergies and he was allergic to her and a lot of other things. So Lilly came into rescue.

This beauty is up to date on her shots, spayed and a very sweet little girl. But Lilly also has a strong hunting desire! She can tell you where ALL of the ground squirrels have been in the fenced in back yard, and then she we tell you all about it! Both Lilly and her new mommy or daddy would greatly benefit from a fenced in yard! She lets her nose control her mind, feet and direction!

Since Lilly is a mix, genetics meant her legs are a little long for a doxie. She is also going prematurely gray, but she is still very active and loveable. She likes her quiet space and goes to her “house” upon request. She also gets her feelings hurt very easily! She’ll wrench your heartstrings. (As if you couldn't tell just by looking at her eyes). Lilly would be the perfect partner to explore the great outdoors, especially hiking and walking the trails. Did we mention that she also likes to cuddle and give kisses?

If you would like to be the one to adopt this special little girl and take her on adventures, contact her foster mom and complete an adoption application online indicating your preference. If you have never adopted through a rescue organization before, please read Adopting Through AHDRS.

Name: Georgia & Daisy

Location: Catlettsburg, KY

Adoption Fee
: $125.00 each or $200.00 pair
These sweet, 10 year old little girls are a casualty of a new baby in the home. They just couldn’t take care of everyone, so guess who went? The poor things.

These little girls have been spayed and they are also up to date on their shots. They are very sweet and kind. Georgia and Daisy sleep together and are extremely good to each other, but they don’t have go together unless you just don’t want to separate these litter sisters. Yes sisters! They are sized from their mom and dad, but colored like the other parent.

Georgia & Daisy are great with other pets and they are very submissive. Georgia is larger, about 14 lbs, where Miss Daisy is more delicate at about 5 lbs. Georgia likes to thank you for her meals by barking at you (Compliments to the chef!). Daisy likes to roll over and kick her feet at you. Both are very sweet little girls that need a forever home to spend their days in. They would love to be the ones that keep your feet and heart warm with the winter months coming on.

Ashley is 6 years old, is spayed & is up to date on all of her shots, so she is ready to go home! She gets along well with her foster siblings, but sometimes she can be a little bossy and needs to be reminded to be nice and get along with everyone. Ashley is an extremely long doxie and would be great in a home with older children (it's best smaller children don't handle her because of her unusually long back).

Ashley would love to find a home with Ginger (see above), but she would be just fine as an only dog, too. Both are learning to trust and give kisses, and loooove to snuggle!

Name: Tad & Callie Sue (bonded pair)

Location: Catlettsburg, KY

Adoption Fee
: $300.00
Introducing Tad and Callie Sue! This pair has been together since Tad was 3 months old and Callie was 2 months old. They've been with each other since they were kids and look forward to spending another lifetime together. They are about 10 years old, so they are not as hyper and active as younger furkids are, but they still love having our own kind of fun and activity. They love and take care of each other, just like they will love their new human.

They often talk with one another about how their dad cried the day they left him. Their daddy didn’t want to let them go, but when he found out that he had cancer, these babies were the ones that he worried about. He wanted to make sure that they were safe and taken care of. He knew that rescue would make sure that the new home they went to live in was safe and they would be well taken care of. He made sure that they went to the vet on regular times for our checkups and, yes, both have made the “Big” trip, so no worries about an extended family from this couple.

Both sweethearts are funny and loveable, love to snuggle, give kisses. They love their foster mom and dad, but they deserve to get our own forever home, where they are sure to melt their new humans hearts because they are so darn sweet!
 
They are a great pair and would love a great home, and if you think it could be yours, please contact their foster mom and complete an adoption application online indicating your preference. If you have never adopted through a rescue organization before, please read Adopting Through AHDRS.
