    Foster or Adopt Chester - When you get to be old, you can do what and say what you want! At least that's what Chester is telling us. Our senior resident, Chester, of yet to be determined age, believes he has earned the right to lay on his comfy porch bed and bark orders. And so far it's been working! He gets meals and snacks brought right to him without moving a muscle. But when he feels like a walk about in the yard, he trots down his ramp and explores in the grass in his yard. One thing that instantly makes him take notice is when Ladybug the beagle comes to visit. Chester still has it for the ladies! His other daily visitor is ... (Read More)Maggie, the cat. She has won his heart and she even stayed for a sleepover the other night. If he's feeling generous, he'll even share his dinner with her. So that's pretty much his day, girls and food! Chester is in pretty good health, the vet tells us. But like any older guy, his hair is thinning and he doesn't see or hear as well as he used to. He enjoys a car ride, an occasional warm oatmeal bath and, most importantly, someone to hang out with - is that you? To inquire about Chester, please email or you can find and submit an adoption application on our website%A0 (Less)

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Kahlua is our beloved family dog, who I have to re-home due to the fact that I will be working farther away, and she would be home for 12-13 hours per day by herself. I am not able to afford a dog walker. I just want to find a really good home with folks who are working-from-home or retired.

Dachshund Mix    Age: Young Puppy

Health: Vaccinations Current 

    Hello, my name is Leighla! I am 4 months old and I weigh 23lbs. I was pulled from a shelter with my Mom from North Carolina. I am very shy, but I really just want someone to snuggle with and rub my belly. I'm searching for... * someone who won't leave me home alone for more than 4 hrs, at least not until I am older. The older I am the more I can stay home alone. I just don't want you to get mad at me if I have accidents or chew things I'm not supposed to when you leave me for too long. I'm a puppy, so I get bored quick and when I'm bored I could get in trouble. * I need someone who knows how important it is that I don't go to public ... (Read More)places until I am at least 14 weeks old. You see, I will only have 2 of my required 3 shots when I go home. So since I am not fully vaccinated yet, I could get sick. My foster mom will explain in more detail if you choose me. * I am looking for my forever home, not my for right now home. So as I get bigger I need someone to teach me how to be the best dog I can be. My mommy has taught me a lot, but I am young and still learning. You may want to teach me some new tricks like sit, stay, etc. My foster mom says professional training will help me bond with you. That sounds like fun! * I saved the most important for last. I am hoping my new mom or dad will snuggle with me, play with me and love me forever and ever! If you think I may be the dog for you, apply now! My foster mom says that since I am so cute there will be lots of people interested in me sweetening up their home :) (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-08-25-00176Kahlua (female)

Dachshund Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    I have taken a new job that does not allow me to get home in time to walk my dog. She would be alone for 12-13 hours a day, and though she is house-broken, and will not go to the bathroom in the house, I know this is not good for her. I do not want to worry about her getting UTI's, and would love to find a retired home/family home where she will be loved and well taken care of. She is my baby, and I have had her since she was about 9 months, I rescued her. Kahlua is part doberman, and loves to run, so a backyard would be great for her. I have taken her running with me before, but not in awhile, so she would need to build back up to being a ... (Read More)running partner. She is great with my 2 year old. She gets a little weird about babies sitting on her or her tail, but she has never bitten. She will growl and jump away. Kahlua loves to cuddle, and lets me trim her nails and brush her without an issue. (Less)

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