Dachshund Mix    Age: Young Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Low Energy, Submissive 
Health: Needs to be Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    DOB 5/27/15 Introducing the most popular kid on the block, Daisy! She has an amazing balance of playfulness and cuddles. Being the sweetheart she is, she loves all people, including kids, and all dogs. With her pretty laid back, submissive disposition, she would love another mild mannered canine buddy to play and cuddle up with. Or, she would be fine as an only dog and play and cuddle up with her humans. Daisy will always welcome an offer to be picked up, will settle in and will melt in your arms. Crawling into your lap, is also a favorite. She is an adorable mixed breed of cuteness, looking like a Doxie/Lab, and currently about 8 lbs. ... (Read More) She is a happy pup, and loves to engage in any game or toy that is offered, big, little or silly. A few games she loves to play, with another dog in the house or their people would include tug, fetch, keep away, crawling through tunnels, climbing over a new obstacle, treat puzzle toy and a new toy she hasn't seen yet is really exciting. We have just started some basic training, including night time crate training, housebreaking, learning come and sit. Someone is currently home with her most of the day, and she loves hanging out and napping, where ever, everyone else is. Since she is comfortable with this routine, we are looking for someone that is also home most of the day. Previous puppy experience would be a big plus, since she will need her new family to continue her training and socialization. If you are looking for a new family member with this personality, she would love to meet you! DOB 5/27/15 Introducing the most popular kids on the block, Mickey Mouse and Friends Litter! They are the most adorable mixed breed, looking like a Lab/Doxie. All have an awesome balance of playfulness and cuddles. With the desire to entertain and be entertained, they are looking for a fun filled, active family. They are happy pups, and love to engage in any game or toy that is offered, big, little or silly. A few games they love to play with each other, another dog in the house or their people would include tug, fetch, keep away, crawling through tunnels, climbing over a new obstacle, treat puzzle toy and a new toy they haven't seen yet is really exciting. They will also accept any and all cuddles they can get. When picked up, they settle right in, and love to be carried around as long as you will hold them. Crawling into your lap for some cuddles is also a favorite. They have had lots of visitors and love everyone, and I think they would have fun with kids to play with. Their foster home has 3 other dogs that they get along great with, and especially love playing with the 3 yr old canine, who is usually included in all their playtime. Previous puppy experience would be a big plus, since they will need basic training from the beginning. Since they entered their foster home at a young age they are just now available for adoption after receiving all their vaccinations. Which also means they will need to be housebroken, they are currently pad trained. They are also used to and will continue to need someone being home with them most of the day. We have our little Princess, Daisy, the largest of the pack at about 7 lbs. She is super sweet, a face that everyone falls in love with and will wait patiently for her turn to be picked up, but then melts in your arms We do not have a facility, all of our dogs and puppies are placed in foster homes. Illinois law requires that all of our dogs and puppies be spay/neutered within 30 days of adoption. In order to fully comply with this regulation and reduce the number of homeless dogs and puppies, we do not permit out of state adoptions of unaltered dogs or puppies. Puppies have special needs and require a home where there will be someone available to care for, socialize, and train them during the day. If your family is away from the home for several hours at a time, please consider adopting a 'teen' or adult dog. Standard adoption fee is $295 (cash or check) and includes spay/neuter when age appropriate at our participating vets, up-to-date on shots, fecal, deworming, frontline, 1st vet visit at one of our participating vets, micro-chipping and 30 days of shelter care insurance.

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet Donald! Currently about 7 lbs. DOB 5/27/15 Introducing the most popular kids on the block, Mickey Mouse and Friends Litter! They are the most adorable mixed breed, looking like a Doxie/Lab. All have an awesome balance of playfulness and cuddles. With the desire to entertain and be entertained, they are looking for a fun filled, active family. They are happy pups, and love to engage in any game or toy that is offered, big, little or silly. A few games they love to play with each other, another dog in the house or their people would include tug, fetch, keep away, crawling through tunnels, climbing over a new obstacle, treat puzzle toy ... (Read More)and a new toy they haven't seen yet is really exciting. They will also accept any and all cuddles they can get. When picked up, they settle right in, and love to be carried around as long as you will hold them. Crawling into your lap for some cuddles is also a favorite. They have had lots of visitors and love everyone, and I think they would have fun with kids to play with. Previous puppy experience would be a big plus, since they will need basic training from the beginning. Since they entered their foster home at a young age they are just now available for adoption after receiving all their vaccinations. Which also means they will need to be housebroken, they are currently pad trained. Little Donald is a very sweet and playful boy. He likes to cuddle for a bit, but then he's ready for some play action! He is great with other dogs and kids and will make a great family dog.

She gets along with other dogs, is quiet in the home and is housetrained, pad trained and crate trained. She is guessed to be about 2.5 yrs old and weighs 9.5 lbs.

Dachshund    Age: Senior

Personality: Low Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Gracie is a very sweet 10 year old Dachshund. We are sad to rehome her but she has a hard time dealing with the noises of little children. She would probably do well with older kids but she seems stressed out by a lot of noise. She needs a quiet home where she can get lots of attention. Gracie has had some back troubles from time to time so we see a vet who does acupuncture and that helps her so much! Gracie struggles with acid reflux so we give her a pill before her meals to help with that (pills are not very costly). Gracie will not jump up on furniture and doesn't do stairs. Please help us find a wonderful, loving, and safe home for her!

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Blind, Deaf 

    Bear is an 11 year old dachshund/chihuahua mix. He is mostly blind and mostly deaf. He needs a safe house and yard as he is fearless and will walk right off of a ledge without supervision. As a typical older dog he can not go long periods without going to the bathroom, his limit is about 4-5 hours or he has an accident but he will wear a belly band no problem too! He also likes to sleep a lot as most older dogs do and he will cuddle up in your lap for hours. He is a huge cuddle bug and loves to be with people! He likes to be held and carried but will also walk on a leash with just a little guidance and reassurance. If you have a large ... (Read More)backyard no problem! he loves to explore and smell the world he will wander around smelling (and peeing) for hours! He even does this funny little handstand thing sometimes when he pees. As long as the yard is safely fenced in and has no ledges he could fall off of. He gets along great with all people, kids, dogs and cats too! He is up to date on all vaccinations, neutered and micro-chipped! He does cry a little bit if he gets lonely but no too much. And he is happy in a cage or gated area as long as he has a blanket to curl up under. Bear just wants to find a loving home to live out his senior years in, safely and loved. (Less)

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.

lnteresting Dachshund Trivia Low-Cost Illinois Spay & Neuter Clinics
    Dachshunds are good travel companions. Dachshunds are named for Dachs, the German term for Badger, which these dogs were bred to hunt. 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.
