Rescue Me ID: 17-03-03-00112Billy (male)

Dachshund Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet Billy! He is a 2-3 year old dachshund mix and weighs about 25 lbs. He's a sweet boy and gets super attached, quickly. He's very energetic and jumps really high! He's a friendly dog who loves his belly and chest rubbed and he loves to sit on laps, rest his head on your chest and just stare at you. He gets along with other dogs but can get testy with some. He also does not like to be tugged on and especially takes exception to having his collar tugged at. With this in mind, we do not feel that he will do well in a home with small children. Also, with his high energy, he needs someone that is going to bring him to parks or go for ... (Read More)active walks. Lastly, he is not completely house trained and although he was neutered, he's still having issues with marking. He is working on that in his foster home and a belly band will help as well. If you think Billy is just what you have been looking for submit an application at www.sophiasgracefoundation.org (Less)

Dachshund Mix    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Very Low Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Hi! My name is Minnie and I'm a 10-year-old Terrier mix and weigh about 20 lbs. Despite having a tough start on life, I still love everybody! I am a sweet and calm girl who loves to cuddle and get my belly rubbed. I'm very gentle with children and I get along with dogs of all sizes! I LOVE to give kisses and sit on your lap and cuddle, but I will lay down and wait patiently by your side if you're busy. I am a mature lady who does not require much - just some love! I am fully house-trained and crate trained and NEVER chew anything up. I'm a couch potato, so I don't require long walks or lots of exercise - I'd rather just lounge around with ... (Read More)you. You'll never meet a dog that's happier to be with her people, so let me know if you're looking for a cuddle buddy to give you unconditional love! Minnie currently lives in a foster home in Texas, but transport will be included in the adoption fee and arranged by Rescue Road Trip if you choose to adopt! (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-06-28-00075Jaxson (male)

Dachshund Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Our robust boy, Jaxson, is a whole lotta dog! He came to us from a young girl in our town who had lost her job and apartment. This young lady was in the process of reinventing herself, and asked us to watch Jaxson temporarily while she got her act together. We agreed, but now, six months later, her new life is not going to accommodate Jaxson, and we've been asked to find him a forever home. Jaxson is a compact, muscular mix of Beagle and Standard Dachshund. He came to us obese at 63 pounds, but has slimmed down nicely to 49. Jaxson has a stocky, muscular build with the characteristic short legs, paddle feet and elongated spine, as well as ... (Read More)the rich, russet coloring, that we see in Standard sized Dachshunds. We just love this dog! He has a fantastic personality and has made lightning progress in his training program. When we first met Jaxson, he was wary of strangers, and was not at all shy about expressing his opinion in inappropriate situations. Now, after some basic leadership and consistent training, Jaxson accompanies his Foster Dad on errands to Home Depot, Tractor Supply, etc, and is now welcome wherever he goes. Jaxson is accepting of strangers and is quick to submit for belly rubs. In the hands of motivated adopters, he could easily earn his Canine Good Citizen certification. Jaxson would be ideally suited to an active single or couple, who can meet his exercise and training needs. Jaxson is lively dog, and needs a couple of brisk leash walks each day, as well as consistent work on his obedience commands. He has a double dose of Scent Hound DNA and requires mental, as well as, physical stimulation to maintain balanced behavior. He needs a strong pack leader, who has the time and inclination to continue him on his path to Canine Good Citizenship. Jaxson could easily join another dog home with a pack that is balanced, socialized and well trained. We don't think he would be suitable for a busy family with children. Jaxson has good house manners and is house trained and crate trained. Adopters should expect to troubleshoot the occasional accident that will inevitably occur during his transition to a new home. He is in optimal health and has been neutered. He has been vaccinated for rabies, DHLPPC (distemper, hepatitis, leptospirosis parvo, parainfluenza and coronavirus), and canine flu. He has been boostered as needed. He has had the 4dx test, and is negative for heartworm, lyme, earlichia and anaplasmosis. He has been dewormed, and microchipped. If you are interested in Jaxson, please write to Denise@eskiesonline.com or call/text Denise at 860-908-9738 for more info. Eskies Online is a 501(c)(3) Multibreed rescue group that serves unwanted American Eskimos and other dogs in need. Our group of volunteer foster homes spans the North East, and our adoption territory extends from Maine to eastern Pennsylvania, Delaware, and parts of northern Maryland. Once an adopter is approved, we arrange transportation. We do not adopt dogs beyond our territory.

Rescue Me ID: 14-01-14-00470Peewee (male)

Dachshund    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Arthritis,
 Seizures, Abused/Neglected 

    [Read About Natural Seizure Care] Available for adoption in Manchester, CT Peewee has now been waiting to be adopted for nearly 3 years! Peewee is now almost 14 years old and has been waiting for his forever home since he was pulled from the Manhattan ACC on June 19, 2013!! Peewee needs to go to a calm home that is experienced with Dachshunds- Peewee is the epitome of the breed: tenacious, smart, and stubborn- he needs someone who will be all that right back at him in order for him to be happy and feel at home. Please read his information in full before inquiring, but if you may be interested in adopting, please email ... (Read More)upsndownsrescue@gmail.com or submit an application online at https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1ISDGDHUVd94aX7q0c0E59NU3ttRjcb9YHc0x4KxRgFw/viewform Peewee has come a long way since the day I picked him up from the Manhattan shelter, June 19, 2013. He had been medically neglected and was a very sick boy who spent his first week 'with me' at the Pieper Memorial Veterinary Center ER vet. He is now a fully medically cared for boy, and happy. Here is Peewee's original thread: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=624048330941383&set=a.626806993998850.1073741961.152876678058553&type=3&theater Here is his photo album on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/UpsNDowns-Rescue-152910554852236/photos_stream?tab=photos_albums On December 17, 2013 Peewee became paralyzed, as many Dachshunds do at one point or another. After a couple sessions of cold laser therapy ($35/ session) and crate rest he is starting to walk again but was still in sporadic pain and not getting full coordination back. On January 28, 2014 Peewee had surgery to clean up disk material between his T11, T12, T13, L1 and L2 disks. Prior to surgery he also had to have an echocardiogram done due to his heart murmur going from 1 to a 4/5 (highest grade is 6) in just 1 month and is now on enalipril (a low cost heart/blood pressure maintenance pill), and his murmur is back very low; this increase may have been due to the stress of moving around from foster to foster, in conjunction with the meds he was on for his back prior to surgery. Peewee did physical therapy after surgery and did well. He has control over his bodily functions and also uses a peepad religiously if one is down indoors, and in the same spot each time. He is also dog door and crate trained. Peewee has recovered from his paralysis, but continues to have a 'drunken sailor' walk. He enjoys running in the yard, but does not like going on walks. On September 1, 2015 Peewee had a seizure. A few days later he had an MRI and there was nothing significant to show why the seizure had occurred, but he is on preventative meds for now, and after a good second follow up appointment is on a lower dose. See full story for this episode at www.GoFundMe.com/Save-Peewee Peewee requires enalipril daily for his heart, an inexpensive medication, and is also currently on an anti-seizure med as a precaution- which we hope to wean him off over the next few months. Peewee is housebroken and pee pad trained, and good with calm, confident and respectful cats and dogs. Due to his anxiety around high energy and unpredictable energy he should not be around small children, and requires an adult only home. He weighs between 12.5 and 13lbs at his ideal weight. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Dachshund in Connecticut
    Dachshund Dogs can make good pets in Connecticut if they match your IifestyIe. The Dachshund is a long, short-legged dog with a temperament similar to that of a terrier. Dachshunds are cheeky, playful, mischievous, and resistant to training or discipline. Dachshunds do well with older children. Dachshunds are well suited to apartment life but need exercise, and it is important that they not be overfed as this breed is prone to weight gain.

Dachshund
lnteresting Dachshund Trivia Low-Cost Connecticut Spay & Neuter Clinics
    Dachshunds are good travel companions. The short legs of a Dachshund are well suited for digging and getting inside badger burrows. Dachshunds are often referred to as wiener dogs because of their shape. Queen Victoria was fond of Dachshunds.
