Dachshund Mix    Age: Young Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Needs to be Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Hi there everyone! My name is Penelope and I am a playful 10 week old mixed breed puppy. My brothers and I came to Illinois with my mom, Sweet Pea, to start a new happy life. We traveled all the way here from Alabama where things were not looking good. My mom had 9 of us babies and then we were all dumped in a high kill shelter. Unfortunately, being in the shelter claimed the lives of 6 of our brothers and sisters. I was one of the lucky ones! My foster mom volunteered to save my siblings and my mom and so now we are healthy, safe, clean, fed, and loved. All we need is a forever home! My mom is thought to be mixed with Beagle, maybe ... (Read More)a little terrier. We aren't really sure who our dad is. I have short brindled hair which my foster mom thinks is beautiful! My legs are shorter than both of my siblings. My mom is small and only weighs 25 lbs. so I my foster mom doesn't think I am going to get too big either. I love to play and chase a ball through the yard. My favorite thing to do right now is snuggle under my foster mom's neck. I get along great with other dogs and enjoy having someone around to play with and rough house. I will need someone who is home most of the day. You see, since I am so young, I will need someone who can teach me to walk on a leash, go potty outside, and generally be a good puppy. If you think that you can love me and help me to learn how to be a good puppy, I may just be the one to win your heart over. Please email Kathy for an application or more information about me at safehavendogs@yahoo.com. My adoption fee is $295 which includes my first 2 puppy shots, frontline, 30 days of pet insurance, a free vet visit with one of Safe Haven's participating vets. It also pays for my spay and microchipping to be free, when the time comes, with one of Safe Haven's vets. (Less)

Dachshund    Age: Young Adult

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

    *PLEASE NOTE: Miller is disabled in his rear legs. Miller is a 4 year old neutered long haired dachshund. He is very friendly, young and full of love to give. In the beginning of July, Miller had an accident that rendered him unable to use his rear legs. I took him in to avoid euthanasia with the intentions of finding him a forever home after he was settled. I am a full-time student and will be unable to care for Miller once school begins in 2 weeks. Miller does require bladder expression 3-4 times a day for hi to urinate. He will come with his wheelchair and his belly bands that keep him from dribbling throughout the day.

Dachshund Mix    Age: Young Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet Corey! 3 month old, Corey was found in Alabama and was taken in by a kind foster until we were able to bring him to rescue in Illinois. We took our best guess at his breed and came up with Doxie/Chihuahua mix...but who knows what else may be in there! He is a sweet, cuddly, loveable puppy that will steal your heart! His adoption fee is $295 and includes 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. Since he is just a baby, he needs a home where there will be someone to ... (Read More)care for him 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. 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 caseysdogs@yahoo.com. Please join us August 23, 2014 for our 'Wag-a-thon' at the Peg Bond Center in Batavia, IL. It is one of our main fundraisers this year and we need walkers! Please consider bringing your dog, your family and friends. Registration is only $25 and you receive a t-shirt. The walk-a-thon will help us pay down our veterinary bills for the dogs and puppies we have rescued this summer. We have saved 3 dogs with broken legs that have needed orthopedic care, 9 Heartworm positive dogs that have now been treated, one puppy that is blind and deaf, 5 dogs that were 9+ years and needed extensive medical care and 20+ moms with their puppies. This is in addition to the adult dogs that have come in emaciated, needing dental, and of course all needing spay and neuter, shots and micro-chipping. This is a great way to spend a Saturday morning and earn a T-shirt to boot! If you have adopted from Casey's Safe Haven Dog Rescue and 485 of you have; we would love to have you join our walk and bring your pup for updated photos. We will have a professional photographer there for pictures! For those of you that are competitive you can win prizes by asking others to sponsor your walk. (You do not have to raise additional money to walk) When you register you make a personal webpage to share with friends, family and coworkers - great prizes for our top pledge earners. But again, you can walk with only your $25 registration fee! 'ۢ The Batavia Fire Department will have a truck on site and will be handing out books to the children, 'ۢ Clifford the Big Red Dog will make an appearance, 'ۢ There will be a Dog Adoption Tent so you can meet the many rescued dogs and puppies you will be helping This is a beautiful walk along the River and only two walks were allowed this year. We received one of the spots; please help us make this a success. We hope to see you there! Register Now at: www.caseyswagathon.dojiggy.com (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-08-11-00657Scooter (male)

Dachshund    Age: Senior

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Heartworm Positive 

    Scooter is 11 years old. Scooter's suggested treatment is Heartgard once per month. This will kill off the larva and will shorten the lifespan of the adult heartworms, which should die off in about one year. Once he is on the Heartgard, Scooter will not be transmitting heartworm, because the larva (which circulate in the blood) will be killed by the Heartgard.

Rescue Me ID: 14-07-31-00232Riley (male)

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Abused/Neglected,
 Fearful/Anxious 

    Riley is in need of a new home asap. He is fearful of my son who is 1.5 years old. I think he would do much better in a home with out kids. He has bit one time. Up until our son was born he was a pretty good dog. He deserves a home not a shelter.

Dachshund Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adult Women Only 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Needs Vaccinations, Fearful/Anxious 

    Riley is a pretty well behaved dog. We rescued him prior to having our son. He was always a skittish dog due to whatever history he had before us. I believe he was abused due to his skittish nature but have never had any issues with him. Now that our son is a toddler he is more nervous and it has caused him to protect himself. He has bitten due to being scared but I believe there is someone out there for him and that he deserves a good home without kids.

Good watch dog. Responds to clapping if he does not seem to hear your voice and will ... (Read More)usually come right to you. He was found running in the area of Lawrence and MacArthur in Springfield, IL... a very busy traffic area. At the time he had diarrhea. Has since been treated for worms and digestion is fine. Negative for heart worms and is on preventative. He is a sweetheart! I would keep him, but due to my age and serious health problems I am not able to manage more than one dog... and he is a rescue.

Dachshund    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Jovie is an amazing little dachshund. We love her to pieces, but she has recently started snarling at and nipping our 4 year old and 1 year old without provocation. She has always shown anxiety with other dogs, but is now showing it with the children. As much as we love her, it may be better for her to find a home with grown kids or adults. She likes to believe she is the center of life, and loves to be considered part of the family. We are her people, she is not our dog. Jovie is a sensitive little thing, so she is afraid of loud noises like fireworks, thunderstorms, etc., and requires a great deal of cuddling during these times. She loves ... (Read More)to play, walk, sniff, and explore. She also loves to sleep under her blankets. She is very well house-trained and knows commands, but doesn't always choose to listen. We love her, and would love to keep her. However, we can't risk having her bite because she feels threatened by our little humans. (Less)

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. Jordan is neutered, micro-chipped, up-to-date on vaccines, de-wormed, and heartworm-tested.

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.
