    Meet Chica! She was a mom to 6 beautiful puppies who have all been adopted and now she is waiting for her turn.

We were notified about her and couldn't let her pups be born in a shelter. Chica is a sweet girl who likes to give kisses and loves to get pet.

Rescue Me ID: 15-04-29-00471Gracie (female)

Dachshund    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
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!

Dachshund Mix    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Very Low Energy, Average Temperament 
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)

Jordan is a loyal and loving fellow who is crate-trained and does well with housebreaking once he's on a schedule. He'll come over and sit in your lap '| or if you're out walking him in the cold, he allows ... (Read More)you to pick him up and carry him inside. But, things tend to be on Jordan's terms. He dislikes it when you reach into his crate ' but he's fabulous if he comes out on his own. So, Jordan is looking for a patient dog-lover who will wait for him to mellow out in their home. His love and loyalty will come in time '| it just can't be rushed. (Less)

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Trudy is an adorable 3 yr. old. She loves snuggling but can still be a little shy with new people so she would need her new family to go slow when meeting her and give her a little while to warm up to them. Once she does she gets very excited and will give lots of kisses. She loves other dogs and does well with cats. Her favorite things are sitting on your lap, taking walks and playing with her toys. Trudy is housebroken but, as with all rescues expect to spend the first couple weeks helping her to acclimate to new surrounds and expectations.

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.
