Dachshund Mix    Age: Adult

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

    Upton is an 6-8 year old Doxie mix who is looking for a new foster or forever home! Midland Animal Shelter was full and our rescue friends couldn't leave this sweet guy there to die so they got him out. He is great with other dogs and does care about kids one bit! He is a very mellow dog... He just takes his life one day at a time and we would love it if he could find his forever home! Upton is up to date on shots and microchipped and neutered.

Rescue Me ID: 15-08-22-00073Oscar (male)

Dachshund Mix    Age: Adult

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

    Oscar is a very sweet, lovable dog who suffers from some psychological problems. We rescued him about 5 years ago from an environment where he was caged outside all day and unloved. He loves being outside but he is a runner and a digger so we have to keep him inside or on a leader when outside. He is gentle and very smart. We have an 11 year old girl who dresses him up and loves to snuggle with him. He is very tolerant of this. He gets along well with our other dogs and is nurturing with our other doxie. He is so good-natured and sweet tempered and it is very hard to give him up but he needs a home where he can be outside in a secure ... (Read More)place. Our problem is that he has begun to urinate on everything in the house and to defecate at least once a day, even when he has been out for a while and has just come inside. I am a 'neat freak' and I can no longer tolerate this. I have to rewash clothes because he will urinate on the laundry baskets. I just cannot bear the smell and the unsanitary nature of this behavior. When I have to go out, I cannot cage him because he will throw himself around the cage and chew up whatever is close enough for him to get into his mouth. I can understand this given his previous owner keeping him caged but since I cannot cage him, I have to leave him in the kitchen. Even if I am gone 15 minutes and he has just come inside, he will defecate and urinate on the floor. He is a great and lovable dog but I just cannot care for him any longer. I want him to have a loving home because he deserves it so much. I have given all of this information so that his next owner will be aware of the challenges. One would hope that a new person in his life may eliminate this behavior. He does love to sleep with you, on you and around you so you must be a person who loves to snuggle. (Less)

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

    Friendly little guy who loves his person, he doesn't really care for four legged friends too much, so we recommend a home without other furry kids in the house. Cute, playful would be a great asset to an active home. He's about 15 pounds and about a year in age.

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

    Frack is a very sweet girl, a little shy but craves attention. Frack and her sister Frick have lived outside all their lives but we are hoping these dogs are given a chance to know what it is to be loved and the center of someone's attention in their senior years. They do not have to be adopted together.

Dachshund    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Low Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs Vaccinations 

    Charlie is a great dog. Due to personal reasons and circumstances I'm unable to avoid the issue that I need to find him a new home. Please email me for pictures of Charlie. I'm unable to upload a photo at this time. he is a long hair white with red spots. Now, if you have other dogs Charlie does okay but at first he does give a little growl here and there. He's never attacked, he acts like he's about to but he's a Doxie, they act bigger than what they are. He did have some health issues with his nose how it would scale. The Vet assumed it's a sun allergy where he can only be outside a good bit of time. He has issues using the bathroom, ...

Dachshund Mix    Age: Senior

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

    Frick is a senior dachshund mix that was rescued when she was a small puppy. While her rescuer had good intentions, Frick and her brother Frack, were cared for but have lived outside all their lives. We hope they can live out the remainder of their lives in a kind, loving home. Frick is a little wary of strangers since she was never properly socialized but warms up to attention really well. She is a very sweet girl and appears to be healthy other than being a little overweight.

Rescue Me ID: 15-05-31-00617Rudy (male)

Dachshund Mix    Age: Puppy

Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    I adopted Rudy in January. Since then my father has had multiple hospitalizations that have had me away from home for more than 4 hours at a time, so I'm not sure he is housetrained. Since my father's health is declining and I anticipate more trips to the hospital I feel this is unfair for Rudy to not get the attention he craves. He is very protective of me. He doesn't bark much at all and knows all of the basic commands. He needs a fenced in back yard where he can spend more time outdoors. He socializes well with the 2 next door neighbor dogs, but through the fence only. Rudy is a super snuggler once he gets his energy out. He is 1 1/2 ... (Read More)years old. I love him and just want him to have a more fulfilled life. (Less)

Dachshund    Age: Young Adult

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

    I have two doxie brothers who need a forever home.I am unfortunately not able to give them the attention they need due to life changes. They must stay together and have a fenced yard. They are sweet loving boys, but they do love to play and wrestle and run around. They do like to bark, but they love sleeping with their human and playing with their toys. Prefer family with older children or retired couple. Thank you for your help

Dachshund    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Low Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Vaccinations Current, Fearful/Anxious 

    Charlie is in need of a new home. Ever since our first child came along he has not been the same. I've tried to make him happy for four years and he has not come around to my child. He is very timid now and hides most of the time (unless he's by my side). If you are intrested in bringing him into your home please contact me. He does have a few health problems with his eyes and nose - the vets were not too concerned at the time. I hate to see him unahppy and looking for a great home for him. He deserves it.

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. The short legs of a Dachshund are well suited for digging and getting inside badger burrows. Queen Victoria was fond of Dachshunds.
