     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!!!!!

     My precious little guy, Tucker, was adopted by a sweet and loving couple and has found a 'fur'ever' home! Despite it's breaking my heart to have to rehome him, I feel blessed to have been introduced to this couple and pray Tucker adjusts well and is given the love and care he so truly deserves for the rest of his doggie days. Thank you, Rescue Me.

     My sweet little boy Ozzy was adopted by a wonderful family. It tore me up and I cried when I had to give him up, but when David sent me pictures of him after the adoption I got to see how happy he was. It relieved my mind and made my heart feel happy to see how much Ozzy was enjoying his new surroundings and family. There's nothing harder than having to give up a beloved pet that was part of your family, but this site made that situation for us a lot easier to do. Thank you 'RESCUE ME' for helping me find my baby boy Ozzy a new and loving home! And Thank You David for loving him so much!

     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.

     At this time am feeling wonder. I had been searching for a new playmate for my dachshund and I feel God has blessed me with the perfect Rosie to fit in better with my family and give Buddy a super playmate. I really like how fast Rescue Me responded to my application and allowed me to receive the dog that I was looking. So, thank you!

     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 have adopted two Dachshunds through Rescue Me and have had wonderful experiences with both. Teddy, a five or six year old mini wire-haired, and Doodles, a ten year old mini dapple. Both fur babies are wonderful and have adapted very quickly to their new environment. Now I have a wire-haired, a short haired and a long haired Doxie. All 3 get along famously. I just love them so much. Thank you, Rescue Me.

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 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.

     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.

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!

     I was in need of finding a home for Howie quickly. I went through DRNA (Dachshund Rescue of North America), but they were not able to help. They did not have any place available for him to go. I became more desperate, and while searching for alternatives, I found your Rescue Me site. In just 24 hours, I had five people post inquiries as to Howie's availability, and I was overjoyed. I quickly responded to them and was planning my next move to foster Howie for a couple weeks until I screened all applicants and selected the best environment for him. Unfortunately for the one who would have adopted him, the owners of Howie had found him a new 'forever' home with an older couple looking for a Doxie. I had more success and was well on my way to an expedient adoption through your program, and at this time I will not hesitate to use your services again should I have the need. Thank you and keep up the great work! I will encourage my friends to consider contributions to your organization and cause.

     I took Penelope in as a foster puppy because her previous 'family' returned her to the shelter due to her chewing things up and peeing everywhere. Apparently they didn't know puppies need to be trained or didn't want to take the time to do it. Either way, I am very glad they returned her! I wasn't planning on adopting another dog, since I already have three, but she won us over with her big floppy ears and goofy personality. We have taught her how to use the doggie door, and she hasn't chewed up anything but the bones we give her. Thank you, Rescue Me, for everything you do!

These two little guys are going to have a wonderful 'FOREVER' home. Thank you so much for starting this great website. I have already recommended it to a number of my friends. Donna

     Putting Peanut on Rescue Me! really did get fast results for me. She found a new home with a new companion dachshund that she got along with right away, and a new mom to love her.

     I have adopted two older Dachshunds that I found on this Rescue Me! I love them and now I can't imagine not coming home to the excitement and love they show when I walk in the door from work! My husband is retired so he is with them all day, but they are still so excited to see me when I get home. I love it! Keep up the good work.

     A nice young woman called us the night that we put Zake on Rescue Me! We talked, and the next day my husband met the family and gave Zake to them. They lived close to us, and it turned out so much better than we ever thought it would. Thanks to Rescue Me!, Zake got a great new family.

     Gazelle was with our rescue for over a year, and I couldn't understand how such a sweet, lovely and active Dachshund could be overlooked like that. Her bio was re-written several times with no success. Then, within just a couple of weeks of posting her on Rescue Me!, we had a fantastic application for Gazelle. She is now in her forever home and has the life of love and luxury she deserves. Thank you, Rescue Me!

     I melted when I saw this picture of Zoie on your web site and couldn't wait to meet her! Precious little Zoie fit right into her new home the moment she stepped into it. She had been well cared for and is very polite. She is also a bundle of fun and very loving. Zoie makes me incredibly happy. Thank you, Rescue Me!, for connecting my life with hers. She is a joy and I love her.

     Jubei was adopted within days of me posting his need for a new home. I received the call from an interested lady within hours of the posting. Several others called asking about him later. His new Mom is wonderful, and is already spoiling him as he deserves to be! I'm so glad I found Rescue Me!

     Thank you so much for such a wonderful site! I found Pennie cold, starving, and scared. She is a beautiful soul inside and out. A very sad thing to think she had been either thrown away by someone, or lost for so long that she didn't know whom to trust. I knew she would need and deserve a home where she would be the Queen! That happened much easier than I would have ever imagined. So many emails... Thanks again, The Smiths

     Thank you, Rescue Me!, for providing us with a tool to find the perfect rescue dog for us. Molly's owner had a lot of new responsibilities in her life, which left her little time to devote to Molly's love and care. We drove six hours each way, in order to keep her from being surrendered to the pound the next day! She is now receiving the vet care she needs, as well as learning to put up with our 11 months old black female Doxie - Gypsy Rose! Molly is nothing but tail wags and happiness, she listens well and I believe will teach our young one some good habits!

     Our heartfelt thanks go out to Jeff Gold and all the people that work or volunteer at Rescue Me! Within hours of making the post for this precious little Doxie, Emma, we starting getting responses via e-mail and some called! The decision of having to let go of a dog is never easy - we were heartbroken - but our other Doxie that we raised as a puppy and who is now 6 1/2 just did not want another dog living in her home. Through Rescue Me! we were able to be in contact with many interested people, this allowed us to select just the right home for Emma. It was important to us that she have a big, fenced in backyard, she now lives with a loving family, a stay at home Mom and Dad, on a small farm with a huge backyard, and a doggie door so she can go in and out as she wants! Emma now has a family that can give her all of the love and attention that she so desperately wants and needs. Wonderful! Thanks so much to Rescue Me! We plan to make a donation, and encourage everyone that has used this great website to do the same. If you have had results, whether it be to adopt a pet or that you needed to put a pet up for adoption, just think about how you just cannot put a dollar amount on the value when it comes to the love we get from our little furry friends!

     Hi Jeff, Thank you so much for your website Rescue Me! Our two sweeties got a home in less than 21 hours! They went to a beautiful family that I know will take care of them and love them for life. They live right in my area. I can doggie sit when they need me, too, so I can see Beanie and Pickle again! Your website is awesome. I praise God for your love and dedication to all canines and other animals, too. May you and yours continue to be successful in this quest to place beautiful animals with beautiful people! Gratefully, Laurie Schultz

     Glad to announce that Mamasita has found her forever home with a wonderful retired man who has owned Dachshunds for decades! Within minutes of meeting, she made herself right at home on his sofa snuggled in her favorite blanket! This would never have happened without Rescue Me! The daughter-in-law of this man had been looking for a companion for him since his wife was placed in long term care for dementia. When the time comes, she will remain in the family with the son and daughter-in-law with ease. They all love her! Thanks, Jeff, for creating this site and helping so many dogs and humans be happy!

     My dog, Chancellor was inquired about within 24 hours, and he was placed within 48 hours! I cannot express how grateful I am for Rescue Me! and how it helped my dog at a time when he truly needed help. Sadly, our lifestyle was leaving nonexistent time to spend with him, and he is a very emotionally needy dog. The woman who adopted him is a saint. She has worked through his behavior issues. When we got him we were able to spend most of the day with him. It was tearing him up to be away from us. It was so unfair. We can't thank you enough!

     The eight hours of driving to retrieve Jackson was certainly worth every mile. Jackson is a pure delight! He curled up in the blankets we had for him in the back seat and slept off and on the whole time he was in the car. We stopped on the way home and got him a new soft leather collar, an engraved name, phone number, ID tag and added his rabies tag to it. He accepted it without fuss and looks quite handsome wearing it. When we got home he had a nice warm bath and spent several hours exploring every room in the house. He is a very curious little fella and really exercised his 'sniffer.' He very quickly claimed the little soft dog bed in the living room.

     I am tickled to have adopted Archie from TracysDogs.com, with Rescue Me's help! I won't actually meet the darling li'l doxie for two weeks, and I can barely wait. He looks adorable and he is going to perk things up around our house. He is the very first one I saw and the only one that struck such a chord. Those eyes are the eyes of an old soul. Thank you for all of your hard work and dedication, you are spreading love all over the place. I would enjoy keeping you updated on how things work out, and sending pictures of Archie in his new home. I can't thank you enough and will certainly keep you in mind when it's time for us to make charitable contributions. Archie says thanks, he owes his life to you and all of the other kindhearted souls who rescue. Big love heading your way, from both of us. Alice
