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. Please note, all dogs are spayed/neutered unless otherwise noted.

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!

New! Please consider sponsoring one of our available dogs! Read more info here.
If you sponsor a dog and forget to include the name or any notes in the message area, please feel free to contact our webmaster to update the page correctly.

Name: Chaz

Location: Bensalem, PA

Adoption Fee
: $350
 
Chaz is a handsome chocolate long hair boy. He is 5 years young and weighs 22 pounds. He came into rescue weighing 40 pounds!

Chaz was obviously neglected. His coat was so tangled, he had to be shaved, and he lost several teeth during his dental. His pretty coat is growing in nicely.

Chaz gets along with the dogs in his foster home but is more a people person. He will play a bit. Chaz is a lover, and devoted to his person. He was quite scared when he arrived at his foster home. He's shy with strangers and just needs time to feel comfortable in a new place.

Chaz would love a home where he can have his own special person to love and be loved by. His person will need to be a bit patient, win Chaz over with TLC -- and keep Chaz eating the right type of kibble in the proper amount. He enjoys cuddling, belly rubs and sleeping in the big bed!
If you want to cuddle Chaz, 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: Yogi

Location: Andalusia, PA

Adoption Fee
: $375
 
Say hello to our chocolate chiweenie boy Yogi! He's very much a doxie with just a touch of chi.

Yogi is one year old and 14 pounds of happy energy. He loves his foster parents very much, loves closeness, and loves attention.

Yogi is not a fan of cats and will chase them like crazy. He does enjoy the other dogs in his foster home and wants to play all the time, so a home with another playful small dog is a must for Yogi.
 If you have the time and energy for this youngster, 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: Corona

Location: Indiana

Adoption Fee
: $150
 
This full figured girl is Corona. She is a 7 year old girl that needs an understanding home.

She nipped at a child in her former home so she was taken to a shelter. She did not do well there as she has not had a lot of socialization. She is standoffish and growly with new people and if pushed she would probably nip. BUT! She gets over it really fast and once she knows you she is the best little dog! She loves her people. She loves her food a bit too much and is currently on a diet.

She weighs around 14 pounds but needs to lose several more -- and she is really a small girl!

Corona is an alpha female and does better with other male dogs. She is very pushy with the females. She isn’t fond of large dogs. They intimidate her.

Corona is house trained, crate trained, spayed, current on everything and just needs someone that is familiar with that dachshund attitude. She does bark but she also listens when you tell her to stop and she comes running when you call her.

Corona won’t be sent on a transport so you must live within driving distance so you can meet her before adopting. She will not be placed in a home with kids because of her history.

Name: Beau

Location: Bensalem, PA

Adoption Fee
: $250
 
This cutie is tiny chiweenie Beau, who is 7 years old and weighs 5 pounds.

Beau hails from Louisiana, where he had some hard times, untll rescue stepped up to help. Beau had a benign hair follicle lump removed, which will not come back. Most of his back right foot is missing, but it doesn't bother Beau and he doesn't miss a beat! He's had his teeth cleaned by a vet and is ready for his forever home.

Because of his size, a home with children is not a good match for Beau. He has a typical small dog personality. He's shy at first. You have to take some time to win him over, but it's so worth it!

Beau is a happy little guy who gets very excited when he sees his humans. He's okay with the other dogs in his foster but prefers people. He will play a little bit.

Beau would like to hang out on your lap, and he doesn't take up much room!  
If you want Beau for your lap, 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: Hopscotch

Location: Indiana

Adoption Fee
: $250
 
Meet Hopscotch! He is just over a year old and weighs in at 11.5 pounds--and is all legs! (And he could stand to gain some weight, too.) As close as we can figure he is a schnoodle.

The adorable guy ended up in a Dachshund rescue because he bit a child, so he will not be placed in a home with young children. He is crate trained, house trained, and will ring a bell to let you know he needs to go outside. Hopscotch is good with other dogs and so far we can't get him to misbehave here.

Hopscotch is a bit timid so he would benefit from some training classes so he can bond with his new owners. He is really very sweet and cute!

He is neutered, current on vaccines and heartworm and flea preventative. Hopscotch is just a misunderstood youngster that needs someone to love him!
If you want to bring this cutie home, 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: Red Baron

Location: Andalusia, PA

Adoption Fee
: $175
 
Red Baron is a little guy with a big heart and major doxie personality!

Red Baron is an energetic 10-year old and 9 pounds of fun love. He was left in a shelter with very bad teeth. It was hard to imagine how he could be so happy and loving before his dental care. Baron lost 16 teeth and feels so much better. He eats fine with some water on his kibble and soft treats.

Baron gets along with everyone -- but he does chase cats! He is very loyal and loving to his person, wants to be with you all the time. He's an affectionate cuddle bug who loves to sleep in
If you want Baron to be your cuddle 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: Buzz and Woody

Location: Central NC

Adoption Fee
: $300 for the pair

Sponsor
Buzz (black and tan piebald) and Woody (red) are approximately 7-8 year old dachshunds that landed in rescue after being abandoned in an apartment vacated by their owner. When the landlord discovered them, they were transferred to a shelter and rescue was called! Just like their names imply from the Toy Story series — they were left behind when their owner was done loving them, but it is our hope that now we can rehome them with an owner that will never be done loving them! And it is no doubt that in both of these boys their new owner will have a forever-after-friend as they are hopelessly devoted to their humans!

These boys have obviously been loved by someone at some point as they are incredibly sweet — given the award of “the sweetest dachshunds ever” at the vet’s office. They have blended in well to their foster home — getting along with all of the other dachshunds as well as the human children (even sleeping with one of the human kids in his bed). Buzz and Woody walk well on leashes, are crate trained and working on remember their house training (although they will need some diligence in this department). We do believe that at one point they were house trained but adjusting to a new environment after your entire world has been turned upside down is tough — and we know that! So currently they wear belly bands inside (which they do not bother) and love to be outside with their foster family in the back yard on beautiful days. The only species they seem adverse to sharing their space with are cats. They seem to prefer to bark at them instead — so a feline-less home would be best! Both boys love to play with toys and snuggle together under the blankets. Truly big time pals — they stay piled on top of one another at any opportunity to snuggle. They are most willing to have siblings (either other dogs or humans) so long as they have laps to sit in and people to love! These boys are silly and sure to fill your home and hearts with lots of joy. Woody will lean on you until you acknowledge his attempt to get your attention and Buzz snuggles right in to give kisses. And while we know that at some point in their little lives Buzz and Woody had an owner that cared — in recent years it appears that either their owner could not afford proper vetting or did not bother. These boys won another “award” at the vet being the most tooth extractions in one day. The duo went in with 84 teeth and came out with only 10 between them! The good news is it has not slowed either one down one bit and no more big dentals to have to worry with in their future (a huge savings to their new owners). Now healthy and happy — and learning all about second chances — this duo is ready to go to a new home.

Buzz and Woody are ready to go to infinity and beyond with their new family — neutered, heartworm negative, current on vaccinations and microchipped — along with complete dentals! Applicants in or near North Carolina are preferred. Transports will not be allowed — any interested adopters should be prepared to travel to North Carolina to adopt. If you are interested in adopting this duo, please complete an adoption application and email their foster mom.
If you're interested in Buzz and Woody, 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: Twinkie

Location: Bensalem, PA

Adoption Fee
: $100
 
This darling face belongs to senior lady Twinkie, who's just as sweet as can be. You'd never know she had hard times in her little life.

Used for breeding, Twinkie was abandoned when she was most in need. Rescue stepped up to give her a chance.

Twinkie has been treated for heartworms, had mammary tumors removed and dental care. She has made a very nice recovery and would love to have a home of her own where she can love and be loved on.

Twinkie is quiet, mild-mannered, has good potty skills and gets along with everyone. Her favorite time is spent cuddled up in a soft doggie bed with a blanket. Please consider opening up your heart and home to this deserving older gal.
If you want to bring the golden to Twinkie's years, 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: Toby

Location: Bensalem, PA

Adoption Fee
: $125
 
This handsome blonde long hair boy is Toby, who is 11 years old and weighs 14 pounds.

The only owner Toby has known is 94 years old and no longer able to care for him. Toby was very devoted to his person but has adjusted in rescue after a fairly short time, is also now fond of his foster parents.

Toby has a complex doxie personality. He's a great boy 95 per cent of the time -- happy, easy going, enjoys pets, cuddling on the sofa with his foster dad and the other dogs. However, Toby is a resource guarder with a thing for paper products. Talk about complex! If Toby claims a dropped napkin or similar, he will protect it to the point of snapping. If not challenged, he'll leave it alone in a short time, perhaps in more than one piece.
If you think you may be able to open your heart and home to Toby, 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: Caoba

Location: Andalusia, PA

Adoption Fee
: $125
 
This handsome hunk of happiness is chiweenie Caoba, who is 10 years old. He is 14 pounds of fun and lots of love! His foster mom calls him "Kai".

Kennels make Caoba sad, and he howls while there. He so loves being with people, but he's fine on a doggie bed or chair in the same room. He gets along with the dogs in his foster home but does not want to share food. What doxie does!

Caoba lets you know he's feeling really good by rolling on his back, wiggling up/down and side to side at the same time!
If you want to make this boy happy, 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.
