Animal ID: 16-07-21-00180Snoopy (male)

Dachshund    Age: Young Adult

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

    Snoopy is a black and tan piebald dachshund, gets lots of looks on his walks. He is up for adoption because he is territorial about food and toys and is a fear biter. He would be perfect for a home with adults and no other dogs or children. He is ambivalent about cats. He has bitten his owners and is not recommended for a home with children and other dogs because of his behavior but is not aggressive toward adults.

Dachshund    Age: Adult

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

    Tator is a clever, loving, playful guy who loves to sit on your lap and curl up in blankets. Unfortunately, his owner passed away in January. We have been fostering him since. However with a 2 yr old bulldog, a 14 yr old Blue Healer and a cat, it has become too difficult to manage. He has done very well with the bigger dogs and loves to be included in their play. Although he is nine, He thinks and plays like a puppy. Tator is good on a leash and listens well to commands. He is fully vetted including dental. he would be a wonderful addition to your family.

    Hey, these aren't my dentures!! Yep,those are his chompers,quite the underbite. I think it makes him unique and adorable!! This poor boy was kept tied in a basement in his previous home and abused by one of the children there.He was not the best behaved at the shelter,and I was prepared for the worst. What a nice surprise Mr. Handsome is, he's very cuddly and loving,and enjoys his lap time. We have only had him a short while,but he gets along very well with other dogs,is very quiet,crate trained, gets along with cats,and is coming along on the housebreaking(he used pee pads in his former home). Mr Handsome is 3 yrs old and 15 lbs. ,and ... (Read More)yes,the breeds are a guess-who knows what breeds made this cutey pie!!? (Less)

Dachshund Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive

    Why yes,she is adorable!! Carlee is an 11 month old 8 lb (skinny!) rat terrier dachshund mix and maybe a bit of chihuahua thrown in. She was given up by her family because she didn't like the males in the house,yet she fell in LOVE with a male employee at the vet. i guess maybe she's picky about who she likes-? she has been super sweet with me from the moment we met. she is a very quiet girl,gets along with other dogs(wouldn't mind being the only pet),walks good on a leash,and has only had a few accidents in the house. Carlee is fully vetted and waiting for you!!

Rescue Me ID: 16-07-01-00500Howie (male)

Dachshund Mix    Age: Young Adult

Health: Vaccinations Current 

    Howie is a 5 year old dachshund mix who is looking for a foster or forever home. He is good with other dogs, but because of a skin condition he is being treated for, for right now he has to be the only dog in the house. (He has a minor case of mange that is contagious to other dogs but not to people). He's very sweet and likes to snuggle and go for walks. Easy to handle. Please contact kloewe66@sbcglobal.net for more information. Note that you must be in the Chicagoland area (Schaumburg and vicinity) to foster for/adopt from Almost Home Foundation.

Rescue Me ID: 16-06-22-00402Rocky (male)

Dachshund Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Low Energy, Very Submissive 

    Great dog my son is severely allergic. I need to find a forever home for sweet Rocky. He is vetted, neutered, up to date on shots, tick fluid, and heart work pills. Rocky is sweet and likes to cuddle. He needs a family where he can be a lap dog. He is potty trained and we believe he is around 4 years old now. We adopted him from a high kill shelter 2 and a half years ago. He does not bark unless he's barked at. He likes to go outside in the back yard and on walks.

Rescue Me ID: 16-06-18-00074Picalina (female)

Dachshund Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed 

    We do not know much about this precious pooch, but we do know she is as cute as a button! The family that dropped her off at a large shelter said they had her only for one week who knows what her story is. They said she was a Golden Bichon(???) and that she was 5 years old. Who knows, she has a poodle like face and golden ringlets on her head, a longer body of a dachsund, well we will say she is just unique. As far as her age, her teeth are nice and white, we think she may be in the 3 year old range. But, besides those details she is a happy girl that was very stressed at the shelter, and who can blame her she had been tossed around quite ... (Read More)a bit in the past few weeks. She is settling into her foster home nicely, the first meetings with the other dogs she was fearful but now she is great with everyone, affectionate with us. She is housebroken( will need the same reinforcement we do here to make sure she understand pottying outside at her new home). We are recommending an adult home, or one without really small kids, she may get nervous with them. Her adoption fee is $225. (Less)

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

    Meet Mr. Cuddlebug, Scooter! He is around 1 yr old, and guessed to be a Dachshund Mix. Being sweet, friendly and social, he has a great disposition. Since he is good with other dogs and children, he would make a great family addition! He really enjoys going for walks too. Little Scooter has had a rough go of it in his short life. Right before entering a high kill shelter in Eastern Kentucky, we believe he was hit by a car which broke bones in his hip/pelvis. After bringing him to Illinois, he had surgery to repair his bones and after much TLC by his foster mom, he is doing great and ready to find his forever home. If you think this little ...

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. Queen Victoria was fond of Dachshunds.
