Rescue Me ID: 15-02-26-00575Apollo (male)

Dachshund Mix    Age: Puppy

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Apollo is a one year old black male Rat Terrier/ Dachshund mix who weighs 8.4 pounds. At first Apollo was really scared in his cage, so no one was sure what to expect. But, it turns out he's a big lover and with time and patience we think he'll be okay in any situation. He loves to cuddle and be with whomever happens to make him happy at the time! He also likes to play with other dogs and cats. Other favorite activities are riding in a car, playing with toys, sitting on a favorite lap and following his people around the house. Apollo even lets you know when someone is at the door and is great on the leash. He is friendly, a little bit shy, ... (Read More)happy, playful and loyal. He is also house trained. He is a great dog and would be great for someone that wants lots of kisses! His minimum adoption donation is $245. If you are interested in possibly adopting Apollo, please fill out the adoption application found on our website (www.wishbonecaninerescue.org). (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-01-15-00269Nelly (male)

Dachshund Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    NELLY!! One of the sweetest, friendliest little guys you will meet! Getting lots of love and attention from his foster family, he knows he is safe now, after being abandoned in Alabama. We are guessing him to be a doxie/terrier mix, mix of cute. Even at 1 year old, he is a fun, playful, silly puppy! If you are looking for a personality to keep you entertained and bring joy to your family, then Nelly would love to cuddle and give you kisses Here is what his foster family has to say about him: It's like Nelly has always been here! Since day one, he has made himself comfortable. Nelly is completely crate trained and has had only a few ... (Read More)accidents in the house. He will need a family to finish his training'|but he is VERY close! Since he was underfed, he is a bit protective of his food, which is normal for a dog that had no food supply. He is working on that and is learning that he is safe and will be well taken care of. He gets along great with our small dog. When he hears another dog in the neighborhood...he likes to go see what is going on. He gets along with children and loves the attention he gets from them. It might be best for him to be in a home with older children (10+) that know when to stop playing when he gets wound up with his toys. He is learning his limits and when to rough house. He is very curious, and likes to explore so it would be good if his forever family has a fence. He is so funny when we walk....he tries catching snowflakes in his mouth, and barks and chases the geese flying above. He is a great little dog who loves to be pet, loved, and will cuddle with anyone! Standard adoption fee is $295 and includes spay/neuter at our participating vets, immunizations/shots up to the point of adoption, fecal, deworming, frontline, 1st vet visit at one of our participating vets, micro-chipping and 30 days of shelter care insurance. We must have an application, conduct a phone interview, and meet your entire family to approve an adoption. Please email Kathy for an application at safehavendogs@yahoo.com. Please consider becoming a foster home while you search for your new best friend. We need foster homes - pounds are overflowing with puppies and adult dogs that are at-risk and need help. We can only rescue as many as we have foster home commitments. Fostering is a rewarding experience for your family. (Less)

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current

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.

Rescue Me ID: 14-12-02-00489Kimsy (female)

Dachshund Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
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)

Rescue Me ID: 14-10-12-00147ACE (male)

Dachshund Mix    Age: Adult

Health: Vaccinations Current 

    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. I would do better in a quieter home because I am a very shy and quiet boy. I am up-to-date on all those shot things and also that word that us boys don't like to say but I am sure you know what I mean. I would really love to find a furever home where I can share all the love I have in my heart. If you think I am the perfect little guy for you please contact my rescue to start the adoption process.

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. 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.
