Rescue Me ID: 18-06-23-00369Rory (male)

Dachshund Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    What a breath of fresh air this little sweetie is-so sweet, mellow, loving and a perfect little gentleman. We are not complaining by any means, but some dogs come into rescue with a lot of baggage, and who can blame them when so many of them have had such a hard life. Rory may not have had the easiest path in life but he has handled it with grace and dignity. He started out in Mississippi, came to Chicago and finally is settling in with us until he finds his forever family. Rory had a little sore on his nose and his canine teeth show a bit of wear, but they are fine. Maybe he was locked in cage and gnawed the bars out of boredom or ... (Read More)frustration, who knows. But, that is behind him and he is looking forward to a long and happy life. Rory is a delight, funny, happy, playful and loves to snuggle. He has never met a stranger whether it be human or dog, he is fine with everyone. Rory's favorite place to be is right next to one of his people. We are guessing at the breeds, we are sure there is some doxie in there but the chihuahua, who knows. He is about 3 years old(maybe younger) and 16 pounds. His adoption fee is $250.

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Submissive 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Seizures 

    [Read About Natural Seizure Care] Looking for a home for my 2-year old dachshund. He is a very friendly dog with a great personality. His seizures began in March 2017, and he has been diagnosed as epileptic. He is currently on 3 medications but seizures still occurr every 4-8 weeks. I've had this guy since he was a puppy, but, due to several different factors, I don't think he's getting the proper care and devotion in my home. Please contact me if you are interested.

Dachshund Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Earl is a wonderful and friendly basset hound-daschund mix who is about 4 years old. He is microchipped, neutered and up to date on all of his vaccinations, he is all set and ready to go to his forever home! He originally came from a life that was far from ideal, where he was denied the love, affection, and attention a dog needs to thrive. When he was eventually rescued, he was adopted out to a home with good intentions, but this situation was also not the best for him. He didn't have the stability and routine that is essential for a dog to feel comfortable and safe, and allows them to be and feel their best. Early was entrusted to the care ... (Read More)of Famous Fido, where we will find him the best possible home. He is an overall great dog, and a staff and volunteer favorite! Earl is comfortable with other dogs, but would probably do best as the only dog or with canine playmates his own size. He is non-reactive with cats here at the rescue, but an intro is always recommended. With soulful copper brown eyes that express his quizzical and curious nature, unique look and playful gentle mood, Earl is a happy and overall great dog! He is happiest in your lap and will never turn down the opportunity to shower you with kisses! Earl would love a quiet home where he can relax and feel comfortable and safe. A dog with Earl's disposition thrives on routine, as it allows them to be a part of the family! Are you that family for Earl? He is waiting at Famous Fido no-kill Rescue and Adoption Alliance to meet you! (Less)

Dachshund Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    My name is Tinkerbell, I am a three year old doxie mix. I am full of energy and love to cuddle. I get along with other small/medium sized dogs and am okay with calm big dogs but energized ones scare me since I am so little. I am learning to get along with cats. My foster family has one and I am nice to it, but like to chase it. I LOVE to go on walks, which is good because the vet says I need to lose around 6 lbs to be healthier. I'm 26 lbs now so need to get around 20. I am spayed, microchipped, and up to date on all of my shots. Please adopt me!!! I have a lot of love to share. Our standard adoption fee is $295 cash or check and $300 ... (Read More)credit card ($5 processing fee). It includes spay/neuter when age appropriate at our participating vets, age appropriate core vaccinations, fecal testing, deworming, flea and tick preventative,1st vet visit at one of our participating vets, and micro-chipping.

Rescue Me ID: 18-06-08-00100Kai Odee (male)

Dachshund Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Kai Odee does look a little bit like a coyote! Well, if that coyote was about 8 pounds and had little stubby legs and a long body that is. Our little Kai is not as wild as a coyote, in fact he is downright lovable. He was taken to the shelter by his family and at first he thought it was a very scary place, who can blame him. At just 7 months old to leave everything he knows and end up somewhere new can scare even a seasoned old dog. But, he soon realized it was OK and in fact made tons of friends, the people at the shelter were lovable as well! Kai came to us to settle into a home foster situation and he is doing fantastic. At first he ... (Read More)was a little leery of the bigger dogs but after a couple hours he became one of the gang. Kai is a happy little guy, loves snuggles and playtime and his toys!! He would not leave the shelter without his most bestest toy-a big green Christmas light looking squeaky toy. How cute is that! We have set it aside for just him and he will take it along to his forever home. Kai will do well in an active home, no long hours alone for this little spunkster, another dog would be great and older children. Smaller kids may be a little scary for Kai. He is the sweetest, most adorable little guy-and he even smiles! His adoption fee is $299, please email Kristine at joysparrows@gmail.com. (Less)

    Lil' Miss Bree, one ear up and one ear down, you just have to love her uniqueness. Bree came from a very crowded household full of little dogs. We can't say that they were siblings, but many of them possibly cousins and distant cousins? They are certainly chihuahua's and the mixes of ?? Some of the dogs were doxy , peke, pug, rat terrier, pom offspring apparently but we honestly do not know.

PIease Read Before Adopting a Dachshund in Illinois
    Dachshund Dogs can make good pets in Illinois 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.

    Dachshunds are good travel companions. Dachshunds are named for Dachs, the German term for Badger, which these dogs were bred to hunt. Queen Victoria was fond of Dachshunds.
