Rescue Me ID: 17-11-09-00004Little Laz (male)

Dachshund Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Low Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Blind 

    Little Laz is about 15 lbs. Do not let his challenged eyesight keep you from wanting him. He is completely potty trained. He does very well in a kennel. He is a quick lerner. His challenged eyesight only keeps him from exploring and venturin into the unknowns. However, just like a blind human, once he learns (and trusts) his surroundings, he is perfectly fine getting around! We recommend that he goes to a home that has adults that can understand that he will need time to learn his surroundings and that he follows your voice so not to startle him. He loves to snuggle and is a perfect travel companion. He is not a barker at all but will alert ... (Read More)you if someone comes to the door or the yard! Once you tell him 'quiet' he immediately stops. So, he learns fast and follows instructions. He is gentle and very self-sufficent. He is not demanding. This angel was obviously someone's baby at one time. He is very well trained. He is a 'little man'. THEN, he found himself in a 700-dog noisy high-kill shelter and was terrified. We have been blessed to know him and think he is ready for his forever home. Please text me at 319-471-0752 or email me at Phoebe. TRANSPORT IS AVAILABLE ANYWHERE--IF THE VERY PERFECT HOME COMES ALONG! He is neutered and fully vetted. We are currently visiting several doctors especializing in his eye condition and if we can correct it, we will. (Less)

    Peanut is a senior Dachshund mix who weighs 16 pounds. He is probably 12 or 13 years old. Peanut is a real sweetheart who is good with other dogs and cats. He enjoys toddling around his yard and snuggling with his people. Peanut would be a great addition to a quiet, calm home. Peanut spent 4 months at a small rural shelter in southern Missouri that did absolutely nothing for him. The only way out of there is rescue. His teeth were in horrible shape and he couldn't eat dry dog food. Peanut got to our vet and got checked out, His heart is strong and he is in good shape. We did a dental on Peanut and they pulled some rotten teeth. He feels a ... (Read More)whole lot better now. He does have some cataracts starting so his vision isn't 20/20 anymore.

PIease Read Before Adopting a Dachshund in Iowa
    Dachshund Dogs can make good pets in Iowa 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.
