     Thank you Rescue Me. My sweet Hope was not adopted, but there was a much better and unexpected outcome. A complete stranger (I don't know if I should tell her name) contacted me, and very generously sent me a check, to help pay for her food and medication. Her generosity allows me to keep her for the next few months, as I wait to hear about a possible job. Your site sent me a very rare angel. I'm so appreciative of her help, and if I get this job, I won't have to give up my best friend and very much loved pet. Once I'm back on my feet, I'll send a check expressing my gratitude. Thank you so much for have this site! -Randy

     I cannot express enough the importance of the service Rescue Me provides. This site enabled me to obtain and adopt a beautiful, sweet and loving Dachshund. Her name is Bella. It was a heart wrenching decision for the original owner, and it was a long awaiting dream of mine to own a Dachshund again. I know there were many who also wanted to adopt Bella, and I am so grateful for the privilege of becoming Bella's new mommy. This would not ever have happened without this wonderful site. I cannot thank you guys and Carolyn enough for making it possible for Bella and me to be together. We are doing fabulous and are nearly inseparable. I will spread the word. Thank you!

     Thank you, Rescue Me, so much for what you all do! Circumstances in my life changed, and I needed to re-home Sophie. Within one day, I found a new family, and I was so surprised to know that they were in the same situation we were. They had two Doxies as I did, and one passed away. My Sophie lost her Sammy and was very lost without him. Now Sophie has a new friend to live with, and a new mommy to love her! I am so grateful for this site, I can't say it enough. I will support this site, and recommend it to everyone I can. Thank you again. Sincerely, Roberta

     My main focus on finding a home for Mia and Willow was a loving, forever, safe home. My girls were young and I wanted them to stay together and know that the adopted family would be the right one for them. I had several phone calls from a wonderful couple that discovered Mia and Willow on Rescue Me. They kept calling and emailing me until I could return the call. I felt in my heart that this was to be a possible forever home. They offered to drive back to meet the girls and they wanted to see if Mia and Willow would accept THEM. I was torn between letting my babies go to a home that could give them the love and care I could not continue doing. When I met these wonderful people they listened to my concerns and they just gave me a sense that they were the ones. Since then, they have sent me a picture of Mia and Willow's new home with the girls. I hope they will continue to stay in touch. This site is a legit site. I found a home within a week and I owe this site so very much with making a tough decision. If you want a dog, consider a rescue dog, They all need a forever, loving home. -Sheila

     Some folks just have to have THAT dog, regardless of where it might be located. It reminds them of a lost pet. The picture just speaks to their heart. For whatever reason, Jimmy has moved across country. Our humane society volunteer transported Jimmy to meet with the brother of the sweet lady that just had to have THAT smiling pup. It was a three hour drive in the middle of the night. Literally the middle of the night--2:00 a.m. Jimmy quickly made friends with the trucker's Jack Russell Terrier and they were off. Jimmy was in bed with his new mom the next night and everyone is very happy. Doxie mixes have that special glow that makes them special. Jimmy was one of the lucky ones. His brother Joe is still waiting for that miracle to come his way. Thank you, Rescue Me.

     We had two Dachshunds and recently lost them to old age. Our little guy was 18 years old and died last May. Our sweet little girl was 17 years old and we had to put her to sleep last month. My husband and I were so devastated when we lost them. We loved our doggies so much and the silence of the house was making our sadness worse. We started looking at Dachshund rescue sites because we wanted to get an adult dog and there are so many good dogs needing homes. We'd been looking at a couple of websites trying to decide which dog would be best for us. One morning, I got on Rescue Me and saw Eddie and fell in love and knew he was the one for us. My husband agreed and we made arrangements with Eddie's foster Mom to go see him. It was love at first sight for all three of us! Eddie is so smart, housebroken, full of energy and so sweet! He's adjusting to us very well and we love him dearly. He is a ball fetcher of Olympic caliber! Eddie's foster Mom and I have stayed in touch so she knows how he's doing and their family is always welcome to come visit Eddie any time. Anyone who is thinking of getting a Dachshund, I urge you to consider adopting a rescue dog. They are all good dogs and deserve to have forever homes with people who will love them.

     I adopted Wilson on Saturday. When we got home, I sat him on the bed and he owned a place to sleep as fast as I put him on the bed. He is crate trained, but I don't think he will spend much time in his crate, (only enough to keep his training honed.) I felt so sad for the dad we adopted Wilson from, having to adopt his baby out. This is the second best Doxie I've ever had. This web site 'Rescue Me' is a real good place to adopt out and to find wonderful dogs of any breed, (I chose Dachshund because mine passed away and I need another friend to pet to help me sleep). I couldn't be happier with this wonderful boy, and this great site. Wilson is just what his dad said he was and I will keep him and give him a great spoiled him for ever. Thank you, Rescue Me, and to Wilson's dad. (Hey, does that make Wilson's dad, 'My baby's daddy'? LOL... Joking, of course, but he can see Wilson when ever he wants. Visitation is given liberally here. Thank you, thank you to Wilson's daddy.

     Our little Autumn was adopted about one week after we put up her posting. She was a little girl that was rescued from a hoarder situation. She was afraid of people and being around all humans. She would cower and run and not want to be a part of the 'human' pack. After six months of rehabilitation with her foster, she was loving with people and while still a little skittish, she would allow us to pet her. Because of Rescue Me she found a great and wonderful home where she is going to be spoiled beyond belief. Thank you Resuce Me for helping us to find her FUR ever home. -Precious Pets Rescue

     My husband and I rescued a standard male dachshund who had lost the use of his back legs. We took Michael for surgery and physical therapy and heartworm treatment (he was heartworm positive when we rescued him). I was advised to have three surgeries and advised against lifting more than eight pounds. We are in our 60s and my husband still works. We realized that Michael needed a new home, but despaired of finding one for a dog with disabilities. When I found Rescue Me on the web, I posted Michael's story, with all the details, and his photo. We received an email and then a text from a lady who lived about 30 miles away. She and her husband had already rescued three female mini Doxies, one of whom had developed back problems and lost the use of her back end. The lady took her for laser treatments and did physical therapy, including water therapy, on the disabled dog; the treatments were successful in restoring the Doxie's ability to walk. We took our dogs to meet their dogs and they all got along (after the first few minutes). After giving everyone a few weeks to think about it, we took Michael to his new home. His new mom has kept us posted with texts and photos. She says Michael has settled in with the girls, has received his first laser treatment and she is doing physical therapy with him. Finding a home that was so well suited to Michael's needs was just amazing. This happy result would not have been possible without Rescue Me! Thank you for providing this forum!

     The Dachshund I posted on Rescue Me had serious issues and I was worried we would have trouble finding him some help. I had many replies and found a rescue that not only agreed to take him but was really excited. He already has several people who are interested in adopting him. This is the first time I have used this site - I am very grateful for it!

     I had to put my Jack up for adoption due to where I am currently living, and my hand was forced in the situation. It was a very hard and sad decision for me. However, knowing that Jack went to a great home, with a family who loves dachshunds, was extremely reassuring to me and helped me cope through this hard time. I strongly believe, without Rescue Me, I never would have a found a family who was the right choice.

     I posted Sandy on Rescue Me and had several responses the next week. After lots of conversation through email and a phone call, this wonderful lady and one of her sons came to visit, and after visiting for a while they took Sandy home with them. Sandy was so excited to meet them that she jumped on the couch with them and started to lick the son's face. I feel very confident that the right decision was made to allow them to take her home. I am sure she will be very happy with them. Thank you to Jeff Gold and this website for allowing this to happen.

     I am so thankful for Rescue Me! I had Quincy and Sophie on the site and decided to renew their post. Less than a week after posting them again did I receive an email that led to their forever home! The couple had just celebrated their one year anniversary and had lost both their dogs to old age shortly afterwards. They are retired and semi-retired and had had no children of their own and wanted to round out their home with two new 'babies'. They are the ideal fittest. I waited almost four years to find the most appropriate owners for my deceased mother's dogs, and because of this free site, it was worth every minute of the wait. What a terrific resource. I will continue to use it if and when need-be and promote it to anyone I know looking to place or adopt an animal. Thank you again for helping to facilitate this experience. Sincerely, Melissa

     I am so excited to announce that Sebastian was adopted by what I believe is the perfect family for him and they only live ten minutes from here. A family of Dad, Mom, two young daughters, and two other small doggies were looking for a rescue Dachshund for one of their young daughters whose own Doxie recently died. It was moving to see how Sebastian chose her as if he knew somehow that she needed him. The Mom works from home so he is not alone much and he now has two new doggie friends to play with. The whole family came to see him and all agreed he was perfect. They all loved him and took him right away. I posted him and adopted him the same day, which is amazing. I think it was just meant to be. Thank you Rescue Me!!!!!

     Rose found a wonderful companion within 24 hours of posting on Rescue Me- And she had two backups in waiting! Rose is the dog that keeps on giving. You see, it's not Rose that got rescued. We found Rose six years ago for my mother-in-law through dachshund rescue. She was a wonderful pet and companion for my mother-in-law for all those six years. Now that my mother-in-law is unable to care for her, Rose has moved on to 'rescue' another spry elderly woman in need of a pet companion. Thanks to organizations like Rescue Me, Rose has been able to perform her role as serial companion. All's well that ends well. She has made us all happy. Thank you for offering this great vehicle service to find homes for pets.

     We registered with Rescue Me looking for a Dachshund several weeks ago. At first we weren't really ready to adopt after our last Doxie went to the Rainbow Bridge, but finally we felt that we were ready to love another little Doxie. Last Sunday morning I checked my email and saw that a new Rescue Me Doxie was listed and found out that he was in a nearby suburb. I first emailed the lady who had listed him and then decided to call her. What a wonderful day it turned out to be! We have adopted Valentine and he has been with us for almost a week. Such a loving and happy boy, he loves to play and is totally house trained. We couldn't have gotten any luckier. At first I didn't think I would find such a perfect dog here on Rescue Me, but we certainly did and we are so happy with our new little spoiled guy!

He is in a good home, beautiful new mommy, clean other dogs and a dog park. Thanks, again, and she said I can call to check on him sometimes he lives about ten minutes from my home. The easiest and fastest adoption I have ever known. I am so happy he is in a good home, even though I miss and love him so, much, he is a good boy, anyone who be blessed to have him. He's smart too, and a great alarm and watch dog. Lol.

     Friskie is a 13 and a half year young Dachshund who slept for eight years, so she is probably only five years old!!! We tried a local online service, who was very helpful, but we did not find a good match for us and then we tried Rescue Me. Our first call was from a lady some three and a half hour drive from us, but it was important enough for us to meet her and make sure that this would be a good home and a good person to take care of Friskie. The lady had an older male rescue dog from Hurricane Katrina that she had taken care of for a number of years. And the dog 'Henry' still looked great, although he was developing some problems. Friskie had never been around other dogs or many people, but she ended up with this lady on her couch being petted and looking content in about 15 minutes. Good beginning instead of ending for a great little dog.

     I used Rescue Me to find my Bella a loving home that could give her the attention and love that my home couldn't pair up to. It was extremely sad for us to have to give her up, but the situation was not fair to her or our other dog. I had many good inquires about Bella once I posted her. I met up with a couple one day, with Bella, and instantly knew it was going to be okay. The people who adopted her are a wonderful couple who knew how heartbroken my son and I were to have to let her go. They have kept in touch with me and have sent me pictures of her. I honestly could not have asked for anything better for her. It was, and continues to be, a wonderful, even though bittersweet, experience.

     I am so grateful for this site. Rescue Me has been a godsend to help us connect with so many people interested in finding their forever pet. Maya went to a senior couple who wanted to have a companion to go on walks with and to go places. She is getting treated like a queen! I love this site and will recommend it to anyone in need of placing their rescues!

     Kira just went home with her adoptive parents. Kira was abandoned on a dirt road along with four other dogs, one of which was shot by an irate neighbor irritated with the problem of pets being left in this area. Kira found an awesome home with an older couple who had just lost their pet of 14 years to cancer. Amazingly, Kira's picture on Rescue Me had a huge resemblance to the pet they lost. After talking to this couple, it was obvious they loved and cared for their pets and Kira would be no different. We had our meet and greet this morning, and now Kira is on her way home with this loving couple. Thank you, Rescue Me, for helping her to find the 'good life'!

     When my sister and I knew it was time for my 94 year old mother to move to a nursing home, one of our first thoughts was for her Mini Doxie, Gigi. I own a business, and my sister and her husband both work full time. Gigi was with my mother for 10 years and was used to having someone home full time. She also was a real 'lap dog'. I told my sister I would help find Gigi a home. Through the years, I've volunteered at shelters and rescues and co-host dogs' message boards. I've also helped to rehome dogs for friends. I went on the internet and found Rescue Me. I posted Gigi's picture and information and almost immediately began receiving inquiries. I had to hold out until my mother was actually in the home, but replied to all who inquired with this information. About a week ago, my mother was situated and I began emailing back those who had written to me. A few had already adopted other dogs, but there were two who wanted to know more. My sister contacted one woman who immediately set up a meeting and took Gigi home with her. She told me that she waited because she just 'knew' Gigi was the perfect dog. She has sent me a video....Gigi looks so happy! I'm so thrilled that Rescue Me helped to find her the perfect forever home.

     We adopted two beautiful Doxies today through Rescue Me. Their owner was so gracious and giving to let these two babies become ours. They are resting comfortably on my son's lap right now. They get along with our other 'senior' Dox, Murphy. Thank you so many times over, Janine, for letting them come into our lives.

     We were looking for a wire-haired Doxie. We have been scouring the Rescue Me photos from my email for a long time. Then, early one morning, we read a bio, but there was no photo. After contacting Sherman's owner, she sent us a photo of the cutest boy. We knew we were the forever home for him. We are so thankful to Rescue Me. He is our happy-go-lucky, funny Wire. He is perfect for us.

     We hesitated to give Sofia away. We had no choice. She was fighting and bulling the other dog in the house and almost killed him. It was not easy. We cried and prayed for her to go to the right home. She needed a home where Sofia will be queen and she will not compete for love. We wanted somebody who can pet her and give her undivided attention. We had a phone call and the couple wanted to see her the next day. With tears in my eyes and a broken heart, I took her to meet this couple. We met the couple- I was speechless! This was the answer to my prayers. The lady had lost her dachshund and she had tears in her eyes as soon as she saw our queen Sofia! The gentleman's eyes lighted up and I knew they were the right one. Sofia bonded with them. I kissed my queen Sofia and she knew she was going to miss us but she knew she was going to be spoiled rotten like was she was at home. The lady sends me photos of my girl! Happy ending to a sad goodbye! Thank you, Rescue Me.

     Thank you Rescue Me. I posted I my Dachshund (Bella) just a little more than a week ago, and have had many people interested. In fact, I had responses the very first night. For various reasons they all fell through, until today. A wonderful, retired couple adopted Bella and will spoil her for the rest of her little life. She is in great hands thanks to Rescue Me!!

     Rescue Me was a lifesaver and worked awesomely! I found myself needing help placing three mini Doxies. Their owner, a dear friend, became gravely ill and his last wish for us was that we take his girls and find them safe and loving homes. We have several dogs of our own and could not give them the attention they have always had. Posted on your site and the number of quality replies I received was amazing! I have two of the three girls in new homes in only three days and a family coming to meet the third. I did not have an adoption fee, as I wanted no money for finding good homes. I wish I had asked for donations to your site! I will try and give one in his honor, I have had expenses with transport, vetting and grooming before placing. I am passing along your email to new owners. THANK YOU for a well run site you attract the 'right' adopters!

     I must say, Rescue Me was the best experience I have had pertaining to a website. Barkley had over seven inquires and one of the family adopted him within four days. They drove a long, long way to pick him up and showed up with generous gifts from their garden. They are a super nice family and while I am sad to see my baby go (I have recently developed medical issues and lost my job). I am glad that a great family found him and will be able to love him like my family did.

     Our 16 year old JRT recently passed and our 10 year old JTR was so lonely. We knew we needed to find him a buddy! I have always gone to breeders for a new dog, but this time I knew a rescue was the route to go! After searching for many weeks on Rescue Me,' we found Pozi! We drove 45 minutes to where she was and knew she belonged to our family! She gets along so well with our JRT and I can tell they will be great friends! The socialization and care she received paved the way to this smooth transition into our hearts! Thank you!

     My husband and I decided it was time for a dog and he decided on a red, Shorthaired, female Dachshund. Not a puppy though, an older one who was fixed and already housebroken. I posted on the online Facebook sites, but then, through searching the internet, I came across this site.. That's when I saw her... Our Ginger! I immediately emailed the current owner and then, worried she may not be available anymore, made the call the next day. Her mommy told me she was still available and told me a little about her. We were sold! After seeing pictures of her we agreed to meet a few days later to pick her up. We drove an hour one way to get her and we are so happy we did! She is the best little dog we could have hoped for! My kids love her and beg me to let them take her out! I was so grateful to have found this site and so happy I did! We couldn't have gotten a better dog from a breeder if we tried! Thank you Rescue Me for our little Ginger!! We will definitely be coming back for our next dog when we are ready!

     When I saw this picture of Romeo on your web site I thought he would be a great fit with our other Dachshunds. He lives over 150 miles away and his owners were very helpful in meeting us half way. He bonded with me on our drive home and is my new shadow. The moment he stepped into it his new home, he was not sure what to do with so many siblings but over night they were all sleeping together and playing. He had been well cared for and came with lots of toys that his new siblings were so excited. Thank you, Rescue Me, for connecting our lives with his.

     Thank you Rescue Me for helping me find Sophie a wonderful 'fur'ever home. We received an email response to the post within a day or so after submitting it. Sophie's new mama was out of state when she saw the posting and contacted us. We had several telephone conversations and email correspondences about Sophie's horrible first year (more than four owners in that time) before we rescued her from a kill shelter. Upon meeting her new mama, Sophie found that she would also be blessed with a 'brother', Peanut, to play with. Just as siblings don't get along at first, it took a little warming up, but before long they were great buddies. Sophie now has a permanent 'fur'ever family that will feed her healthy foods and snacks, get her veterinarian care if needed, and provides several acres to explore. This is a complete success story made possible by the Rescue Me website. Thank you!!

     Our experience with Rescue Me was a happy and successful story. I came across Honey and fell in love with her photo and her story. The foster parents were very helpful and took good care of her. She is exactly what we were looking for. We have had two Dachshunds in the past, the last one passed away last January. We missed having a little Dachshund around so I started looking for a young female, house trained and fixed. Honey is all that and more. She is so full of life and energy. My husband and I cannot be more pleased and happy to have her as part of our family. She is our little baby now. Thank you so much for having this website. We really wanted to rescue a dog and we did just that. God bless you!
