Dachshund Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Cooper DOB: 1/2009 Neutered Male (bi-lateral cryptorchid) Mix: Boston Terrier - mother and father appears to be a Dachshund. (He does have quite the underbite.) Up to date on all vaccinations, heartworm and flea/tick preventative. No health issues. Housebroken and crate trained. 'Go get in your house, Cooper.' Knows basic commands. Weighs just under 20 pounds. Cooper is a sweetheart. He loves to be petted and cuddled. He definitely wants to be the 'baby' of the house, so a home with a baby would most likely create jealousy issues (in our ... (Read More)experience, he would whine incessantly and chew baby's things. He has never been aggressive.) He is great with children and is extremely gentle when properly exercised. He does jump when excited. Cooper has always had a fenced in yard and therefore is not very good with pooping on a leash. He much prefers to run off of the leash and gets too excited when completely loose to come when called. A new home would require a fenced in yard. He is used to being with other dogs, but does bark when seeing a dog for the first time. He has spent time with cats and did well, but he is not currently living with any.

Dachshund    Age: Adult

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

    [Read About Natural Seizure Care] Freckles is living up to his name with his gorgeous coat known as a dapple dachshund. He is 7 years old. He has a heart condition known as ' irregular heartbeat ' His previous owner says he has very 'rare' seizures. So rare the vet didn't prescribe meds for them. He had to have blood work to be neutered and when they did that, his blood work came back perfect. I don't think this should be of any concern, but I did need to put it out there. He is current on all shots, microchiped, neutered and he is heartworm negative. He is very friendly with other dogs, kids and cats. He loves to play!

Animal ID: 20130822Frankie (male)

Dachshund    Age: Adult

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

    My name is Frankie and I want to tell you about myself. The Vet estimated that I am approximately 6 years old. My Foster Mom says I have the most beautiful red smooth coat she has ever seen (and felt). No one really knows my life story other than that I was raised in a puppy mill. When Little Paws rescued me I was so malnourished I was a walking skeleton. They took me to a really nice doctor who said I needed to have 12 teeth pulled (did I say nice?) but my Foster Mom says I'm still very handsome. She also says I'm really smart because I learned to go through the doggie door in two tries! Sometimes I don't always make it out through ... (Read More)the doggie door at which point my Foster Parents have had what they call a 'prayer meeting' and I am scolded. I prefer to be on leash when I go out to the potty (I don't know why but I just do). I'm crate trained but I do not like it because I prefer to sleep in the big bed with my Foster Parents and Tugger the Golden Retriever. I'm not a yappy dog but will gladly chime in when Tugger gets excited. He and I do play together - he finds a toy to play with and I take it from him and run like crazy. My Foster Parents just laugh and laugh when we play. They keep telling me that somewhere out there is a family who is looking for a companion just like me but until then they will love me like I'm their own. I promise I will shower you with kisses, beg for belly rubs and curl up in your lap if you would please consider filling out an application and adopting me. Frankie is currently being fostered in VA. If you see a furbaby that would be a match for your family, please don't let distance stand in the way of your adoption. LPDR can work with you to have a volunteer transport to assist with transportation or refer you to a paid transport. There is a $35 health certificate needed if traveling across state lines (required by law). (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.

Dachshund
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. The short legs of a Dachshund are well suited for digging and getting inside badger burrows.
