Rescue Me ID: 16-11-28-00423Stafford (male)

Dachshund    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    We looking for a loving home for our two 9 year old dauschund male dogs. One of our dogs, Stafford 'Staffy', is growing very skiddish around children and has bit 2 children in the past year. The first time it happened was to our son and we basically wrote that off as a misunderstanding as he had never been violent in the past (and we felt like he had been provoked by a few kids cornering him). Since then we exercised more caution with him around any children but it happened again when my nephew was playing ball with him a few days ago. Both times were bites to the face requiring stitches. Since we have young children and other young friends ... (Read More)and family who frequent our home, we do not feel it is plausible (or fair for the dogs) to always have them locked up when children are around. We are devastated at having to find a new home but really it's the only viable option at this point. Otherwise Staffy is a loving dog who craves affection and loves his ball. Our other dog, Berkley, is very gentle and tolerant of everything but we would ideally find a home that would be willing to take them together as they have been 'brothers' since they were puppies and are VERY attached to each other. Obviously we are only looking for a home that does not include children. They are both up to date on vet exams and shots. Both are neutered. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-11-24-00088Bailey (female)

Dachshund Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Bailey and Moji are sweet, sweet girls. They must be adopted together. Both pets are very shy when meeting new people, and bark when strangers are in the house. It took Bailey 6 months to allow my husband to pet her. She loved me and our 7 year old son immediately. Moji is a bit braver, accepting my husband within 2 weeks. Moji and Bailey need a very specific household where they will be the center of attention. They love to give kisses and snuggle. They will sit on your lap for hours. Moji loves to chase toys and will usually bring them back to you. Sometimes, she requires you to fetch for her. It is tough to take them on walks ... (Read More)because they are terrified of strangers. They do not like to go in the yard without their humans and do have accidents in the house. They are friendly with our cats as long as the cats are not running. Once the cats run, the dogs will chase, but give up once the cats are out of sight. We're looking for a home where the dogs are free to run around and a person is usually home to play with them. The perfect owner will enjoy non-stop doggie kisses and love them like family, not just dogs. (Less)

    Clyde is black and has brown paws. He looks like he is wearing Ugg boots. ;) He is house trained, crate trained, and sleeps solid all through the night until we get up. Loves to cuddle! He comes when you call, sits when commanded, lays down, and plays fetch. When he needs to go out he sits at the door and wags his tail and my give a small yelp. He needs a yard with a fence because he is a runner. He also does not do well with small children. (The reason we are saying bye to him :( He is a fabulous pet for teenagers or above. Gets very nervous when new people come over. We slowly introduce him to people and let him warm up once he sees the ... (Read More)new person is welcome here. He seems to prefer men over women. But he is fine after he warms up. Same thing for other dogs. At the doggie daycare, or at a friends house with dogs he is very nervous at first but eventually will warm up. Needs to be on a leash for this introduction. If you come across a strange dog at a park or walk he barks. He needs to be socialized more to make that work better. (Less)

    Rico is the most interesting combination! We think he is a German Shorthair Pointer/Dachshund mix. He is about 5 yrs old and is neutered and ready to go. He is timid around new people and needs to be given time to adjust. He probably would not do well around children.

    Herbie is a 7 yr old male neutered Chihuahua Dachshund mix. He is a very sweet fellow that just wants a lap to sit on! He came to us with a bad flea allergy and hair loss but has responded to treatment and has hair growing back. He is shy when he meets people but is a real doll when he decides you are a good person.

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.

lnteresting Dachshund Trivia Low-Cost Virginia 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. Dachshunds are often referred to as wiener dogs because of their shape. Queen Victoria was fond of Dachshunds.
