Rescue Me ID: 15-01-21-00291Buddy (male)

Dachshund Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Buddy is a sweet dog most of the time. He often reacts aggressively when afraid. He feels threatened when he meets some new people. Others he is fine with. He does best with people who do not confront him when he is scared and barking. He has nipped, but never hurt anyone. He chases cats, and I would not trust him alone with them. He knows lots of tricks and is smart. Needs a home with a dominate person. He does well with other dogs, lives with a toy poodle currently and she is the pack leader. He just needs to feel secure and that someone is in charge.

Now don't pay attention to the fact I am 14yrs young because I am in excellent health and act like a young dog not a senior!! I am very friendly and have live with my mom all my life but sadly she is going to a nursing home and I need to find a home because I am not allowed to go with. My mom is looking to find me one before she goes because she loves me and wants me to find the best home. I do get along with other dogs just fine esp if they are my size but a puppy may be something different because they may want to play with me and be too rough,put it this way I would be a great companion for another dog my age so we can hang out together and play at our speed. I also would prefer a home with adult children or no children since I have not lived with small and young children my entire life and 14yrs later I would prefer it stays that way, we don't want anyone hurt. I can't tell you how I would be with cats, it was just me and my mommy and no kitties to take any of her time away from me. I am housebroken and fully vetted and always have been very well taken care of, I was my mommies baby. (Less)

Dachshund Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    All Kimsy wants for Christmas is a real home who will love and care for her forever! Kimsy was in a high kill shelter and out of time. She had been turned in by owners with no reason given. They said she had been hit by a car about 6 months prior. Her hind legs have reduced range of motion due to how her pelvis healing on its own with no prior vet care. It has not effected her willingness to play and run all about with the other dogs. She can go up and down stairs but can't get on or off furniture. Adorable 12 pound, very happy, friendly, scruffy coated, long bodied, short legged girl about 1.5 years old. She is current on vaccinations, ... (Read More)spayed, heart worm tested negative and on prevention, plus microchipped. She has been in a kennel for awhile waiting to be a part of a family. We have not had her loose in the house much so are not sure if she's housebroken. She is use to going potty outside so would be easy to housebreak if she isn't already. She is crate trained and very quiet unless she needs out to potty. She's a confident outgoing girl who plays great with both male and female dogs who are also playful. She really doesn't know any commands but would love someone who would like to teach her some fun tricks. Vet's phone number you use currently or in the past is required to adopt for a reference. We have 30 rescued dogs of all sizes all praying for a real home! Please do not consider a dog for Christmas unless you want a dog as a family member for its whole life. (Less)

    Hi my name is Ace and I am about 5-6 years old. I have a heart of gold that is full of love waiting to share with my furever home/family.

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.

Dachshund
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.
