Animal ID: 20140955Henry (male)

Dachshund Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    If I were writing a book about this boy, it would be called 'Henry the Happy Dachshund.' He has an even tempered, pleasant, loving disposition. He loves running around the yard chasing squirrels & really enjoys long walks on leash outside of the yard. We live on a lake and Henry's little paws prefer to stay high and dry. Evenings are the time for hanging out on the Lazy Boy with the man of the house, who loves him very much. Other things about Henry - Adventure guy needs a fenced yard, hopefully big enough for him to run and play. Toys are okay; a few little squeaky toys are played with for a short time. He is not ... (Read More)a chow hound nor does he go crazy for treats. He'll politely accept Newman's Snack Sticks to make the people happy. Several dried foods have offered; it is not his thing. When he came here he was suffering from kennel cough & had not been eating. As happens with dogs in this household, I have been gradually trained to find something he likes (Merricks, Chicken Soup for the Soul, and Newman's canned foods are favorites) and I do mix dry food in with it. His health is fine now but the preference for canned food I think is permanent. He sleeps in a crate at night - not a peep out of him! But put him in the daytime & he may want to talk about this. It's not bedtime & he just got up, for crying out loud! Re house training - on his first day here I think he considered our enclosed porch 'outside.' We have worked with this smart boy and since that first day have not seen any more accidents. He doesn't bark to go out but quietly sits by the door. The weather is getting cooler, the house is open so he can go from house to porch to doggie door at will. He's really excited. His people keep talking about taking him to get tutored. Should be fun!! Contact Henry's foster mom Barbara at bmeyer2072@aol.com Fill out an adoption application today: http://littlepawsdachshundrescue.rescuegroups.org/forms/form_humanverify?formid=2724 RI RESIDENTS At this time we are not registered with this state and are unable to adopt to residents. The process to register is lengthy and will take some time. We are currently working on this process. TRANSPORTATION HELP! 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. ***** Henry is being fostered in GA! (Less)

    OLIVER IS BEING FOSTERED IN THE RICHMOND, VA AREA. PLEASE VISIT OUR WEBSITE WWW.MOMSRESCUEVA.ORG TO COMPLETE AN ADOPTION APPLICATION. Meet Oliver! Oliver is an unusual 4 month old Dachshund/Plott Hound mix with a very sweet, sensitive nature. Little Oliver had a rough beginning, he was an owner surrender (confiscated actually) to a shelter because of neglect. When his foster Mom rescued him, he was almost completely bald from fleas, bacteria and yeast and you could tell this little boy had been treated harshly. His skin was in such bad shape and so itchy it was torture for him. But through it all he remained the sweetest boy ever, always ... (Read More)wagging his tail and ready to give kisses. After lots of TLC, he soon recovered and is such a handsome boy! He is very playful and submissive and loves, loves, loves to be with his people! He likes to run around and play with his foster brothers and sisters but he is always the first one in to hang out with his foster Mom because he loves the attention she gives him. He loves going places in the car and sometimes he will just curl up in the front seat and take a nap, he is just so happy to be along for the ride! Oliver loves toys and chew bones and is especially fond of his buddies, a stuffed zebra and bumble bee. He gets along with everything and everyone he meets he is eager to please and ready to learn. Oliver would make a great addition to any family!! Oliver is UTD on all medical and ready to find a family that will take him home and shower him with love and affection. Come see Oliver! (Less)

Dachshund Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Male Dogs Only 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Lilly-Sue came from a hoarding situation where she lived in an outside pen. This adorable pup is about 1 year old. She is a very sweet girl who is friendly with people. Lilly-Sue loves attention. While Lilly-Sue does best with easy-going small males or larger dogs, she does not care for small female dogs. However, with training, she might become comfortable with female dogs. She already walks great on a leash. Lilly-Sue is doing great with her potty training. Since she is still young, she needs to find a person or family who can continue to train her. Lilly-Sue is UTD on shots/monthly preventatives and is microchipped. Lilly-Sue ... (Read More)is looking for her happily ever after with someone special. Can you please give this cutie pie the home she needs? She will put her little paw prints all over your heart. Please apply to adopt Lilly-Sue today. (Less)

Dachshund Mix    Age: Young Adult

Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Needs to be Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    I am looking for a home for my fathers dog Midget because he is now in a nursing home. Midget is a good dog. Very sweet. Loves to be cuddled and sit in your lap. She has never lived with children before or other pets. Right now she is doing okay with my kids and my male Pitt, but she would be happier in a slower environment with more freedom. She needs someone who has time to love her more. If you are that person, please contact me.

Misty has had a hard start to her young life, she looked like she had been having puppies since she was just a baby herself and was picked up on the road with one puppy, Molly. They were taken to a small high kill shelter and only given a few days. Other rescues wanted to save the baby, leaving ... (Read More)poor Misty behind to face an almost certain death. The AC officer wanted to give them BOTH a chance so she kept them together waited and hoped. On their last day, one of our group members (her foster mom) saw them and decided they BOTH had to be saved and the rest as they say is history! Misty is an amazing girl and so grateful for her new life!! She loves being around people and playing with all the other foster puppies. She likes to play fetch and play with her toys and when she goes outside she always grabs a toy to take with her! Her most favorite thing is belly rubs and snuggling with her family. She is good with kids, other dogs and she even likes the resident Dog savvy cat! She is housebroken, good on a leash and would love to learn more as she is eager to please! She just needs some guidance and of course lots of love and affection. This is a wonderful little girl would make an awesome family pet.

Health: Needs to be Spayed 

    I posted Breeze before but my Father was very sick with Alzheimer's and she would sit with him for hours,I ended up taking her off the site.I thought my Mother would be taking her but she will be in a place in Richmond with no pets allowed. I love this little dog, when we got her she was a little over a year, she had been abused for awhile. They really hurt her. My Father passed in December and she has not been the same. She is aggressive with the other dog over food. She barks a lot but is getting better. She needs to be the only dog she needs constant attention She is a loving dog and best when she can just sit in a chair with someone ... (Read More)all day and sleep with you at nite.

Dachshund    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Prince is a 9 year old spunky and handsome little guy. He loves other dogs but I would not trust him with a cat whatsoever. He is great with kids. He needs some work on house training as I am hearing from our foster so I would recommend if you work to crate him or put him somewhere that there is no carpet for him to pee on while you are away.

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

    Billy is a nice little fellow who likes to be around people. He is about 2 years old and weighs 12 lbs. Since Billy loves to play follow the leader, he follows his people wherever they go. He likes to play with both big and little dogs. While he likes to be petted, he prefers that you pet him under his chin and not on his head. Because of his small size, he could live anywhere. He needs to find a new person or family to call his own. Can you provide Billy with a loving home? He will bring joy and laughter to those he loves. Please apply to foster or adopt Billy today.

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.
