  • Jax - Dachshund Dog For Adoption

    Date listed: 06/03/2017

    Dachshund Dog For Adoption in Dallas, TX, USA

    Jax

    verified

    rescue
    Breed: Dachshund
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Dachshund. Jax is a great looking young man who came to us with a bit of baggage. While we don't know all the details, he sometimes becomes startled or frightened, and he tends to become agitated. Once he knows you he will jump up and want to be next to you, but it's best to be calm. He picks up on that and then he settles down into quite the cuddle puppy. Jax doesn't feel comfortable around big dogs and in typical Dachshund fashion he barks at them. Because he's a bit of a work in progress, Jax doesn't need to go to a home with an inexperienced owner or young children. He has a hard time with change, and he tends to become very vocal and difficult to redirect once he gets agitated. He is not a mean dog, but he definitely has some psychological needs that require a firm but patient owner, a predictable environment, and a routine that helps Jax become comfortable.

  • Einstein - Dachshund Dog For Adoption

    Date listed: 03/04/2017

    Einstein

    verified

    rescue
    Breed: Dachshund
    Sex: Male Male
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Dachshund. Einstein came to us from a shelter where he was turned in by someone who said "he's sick" and didn't want him. It turns out the boy had a pair of infected upper teeth that had abscessed, as well as a massive case of digestive worms, so it's no wonder he was losing weight and didn't feel well! The bad teeth were removed (the rest were in good shape), he's had wormer, and he is already starting to feel more energetic and gain back some weight. Einstein is a happy old guy who prances while he walks! He enjoys going outside for restroom breaks, and he is fine with most other dogs. Einstein does whine a lot, probably a legacy of his previous owner and his poor health, but he settles down once he's comfy. He was not very nice initially when approached at the kennel in the shelter, but once we got him into a home, Einstein became incredibly sweet and appreciative. He will tell you when he wants out, loves to eat (making up for lost weight and tooth/tummy issues), and is very smart- he figured out dog steps onto the bed almost immediately! Sure he's old, but Einstein doesn't care; he just wants to be loved!

  • Cider - Dachshund Dog For Adoption

    Date listed: 11/29/2016

    Dachshund Dog For Adoption in Dallas, TX, USA

    Cider

    verified

    rescue
    Breed: Dachshund
    Sex: Female Female
    Age: Senior
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Dachshund. Cider is a standard sized lady with a bounce in her step, great manners, and a sweet temperament. Cider is a bit skittish at first, especially if startled, but she gets over her shyness quickly. She came to us with some severe flea allergies and skin/coat problems, but she's already growing in a beautiful, healthy coat now that she's had preventative and some good nutrition. Cider had a couple small mammary bumps removed while she was spayed but the lab work showed no problems, so she's in good health. She's a happy girl who acts and looks younger than her age. Cider is a great pet- doesn't bark much at all, immediately picked up on the house training, and enjoys comfy time around the house. She's probably not a good candidate for a high-energy lifestyle or for young children (she doesn't enjoy impulsive or surprising movement near her when she's relaxing), but she's basically just a loving, easy-going girl who is a very loyal, appreciative pet!

  • Chihuahua Dog For Adoption in Dallas, TX, USA

    DJ

    verified

    rescue
    Breed: Chihuahua
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Dachshund. DJ is a cute, spunky little guy who is shy at first but is a great friend once he knows you're nice. DJ is a cuddle-puppy at heart. He's small but not too fragile, and he really has some of the best qualities of both a Dachshund and a Chihuahua without the aggression that is sometimes associated with "Chiweenies". This little boy really rates a furever home. He's a good pet, a loving boy, and very cute!

  • Cowboy - Dachshund Dog For Adoption

    Date listed: 05/28/2016

    Cowboy

    verified

    rescue
    Breed: Dachshund
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Senior
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Dachshund. Cowboy came from a not very wonderful breeder situation, but he's incredibly social for a dog with that background. He is also very appreciative! Cowboy spends most of his time enjoying being indoors on comfy beds, getting enough to eat with good, premium pet food, and beind treated with love by the people he meets. Cowboy's teeth were so infected he had to have all but two lower teeth extracted. He is also heartworm positive, although at his age we are going with the recommendation to do the "slow kill" method, which consists of monthly preventative so no new heartworms form while those already on board die off at the end of their life cycle. Cowboy is a good boy, and other than having a bit of confusion over the whole housetraining thing, he's a great pet! He is learning rapidly and now that he's neutered we are optimistic the house training will also improve. It's our pleasaure to welcome Cowboy to a better life that he very much deserves and is thankful for!

    Bella

    rescue
    Breed: Dachshund
    Sex: Female Female
    Age: Senior
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Dachshund. Bella is a strong willed senior lady who can be very affectionate with an experienced owner. Once she adjusts to her surroundings, Bella is a very good girl, and she really enjoys walks, a comfy home, and responds well to consistent boundaries. Bella would do best as a single dog since she has a very "take charge" personality.

  • Jerry - Dachshund Dog For Adoption

    Date listed: 03/07/2016

    Dachshund Dog For Adoption in Dallas, TX, USA

    Jerry

    verified

    rescue
    Breed: Dachshund
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Young
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Dachshund. Jerry is a beautiful, long, and low red standard Dachshund. He has had an eye injury but just adds to his unique and regal look. Jerry is young and trainable and does well with praise. Jerry learns commands quickly but didn't come with a lot of practiced social behavior. He is willful and spirited, and takes pride in "getting it right". Jerry is a bit possessive of his owner and is still being taught that he doesn't need to be over-protective. With an experienced owner and patient but consistent reinforcement he will become the best pet ever! He is young, handsome, and ready for a lifetime of loyal loving; Jerry may just be the one for you!

  • Jessica - Dachshund Dog For Adoption

    Date listed: 03/07/2016

    Dachshund Dog For Adoption in Dallas, TX, USA

    Jessica

    verified

    rescue
    Breed: Dachshund
    Sex: Female Female
    Age: Young
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Dachshund. Jessica is not immediately trusting, so it takes some time for her to really show her sweet side. Once she does, she is a wonderful little lady. You will never know a more loyal pet than Jessica once she bonds with you, but it will take the several day "getting to know you" period for her to adapt. She would be great for a home without a lot of new people coming and going and where someone is home with her a lot. Like many Chiweenies, Jessica is easily intimidated by larger dogs or dogs who are too "alpha". She needs a patient adopter who knows that she is well worth working with! No children, please.

  • Widget - Dachshund Dog For Adoption

    Date listed: 12/26/2015

    Dachshund Dog For Adoption in Dallas, TX, USA

    Widget

    Breed: Dachshund
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Dachshund. See Widget's HomepageGo to our official websiteYou can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.Widget is a very active standard Dachshund boy who got his coloring by being a double-dapple. Like many with that genetic combo, though, Widget is deaf. He has got some vision, but not very clear, and he is sensitive to bright sunlight so he should not be exposed to it for long periods of time. Widget is a high-energy boy who likes to play and run. He is a bit jumpy if he doesn't see someone coming, which is natural considering he can't hear anyone approach. Widget has a sweet nature- he likes to give doggie kisses and cuddle when he is in one of his relaxed moments. Widget is a large boy and is also vocal (he can't hear himself bark) so he is not a good choice for young children or apartments. Widget's foster is working with him on sign language. He is a smart boy and learns fast, but he is a youngster so it will take time and consistency for him to master them. In short, Widget is a good boy, a happy, energetic pet, and needs an adopter who will understand and appreciate him for what he is!
