     This is truly a success story with Rescue Me! I know I found the perfect home for Rockie. The person who adopted him has a Dachshund by the name of Roxie. Rockie and Roxie, what a team. The new owner sent me pictures of Rockie to let me know he was doing fine. The pictures he sent me warmed my heart. Rockie, just after a few hours after adoption, was already sitting on the new owners lap!! Wow! This little boy usually has trouble warming up to anyone. I know for sure that this little guy will have a wonderful, safe and Loving home. Thanks Allen!

     Our sweet little seniors have gone together to a couldn't be better forever home. Their new mother, Jan, is a compassionate and a very knowledgeable dog lover. She's adopted two previous rescue dogs. Pirate Pete is in one of the photos as he and Brenna become acquainted. All of the dogs got along fine; Piper was preoccupied with 'squirrel patrol' during the photo shoot. Thank you to all who helped Brenna and Finley on their journey, by sharing their story and keeping them in your thoughts and prayers. We send special thanks to the good people at the Dog Stop South who gave Brenna and Finley good care and good times at doggy day care. Most especially we thank Jan for opening her heart and home to Brenna and Finley and making the rest of their lives the best of their lives. Thank you, Rescue Me!

     We adopted Chester from Joanne after we lost our beloved Chocolate Lab, Ranger, after having him for 15 years. This little guy is one of the nicest dogs we've ever had and we have owned lots of dogs over the last 50 years. He has filled a big empty spot in our lives. He is 10 months old and has found his forever home right here with us. We have always taken excellent care of our dogs and spared no expense when it comes to their health and well being, and it will be exactly the same with Chester. The hardest part was leaving Joanne's home with him because we knew how hard it was for her to give him up. She had reached the point in life where she felt she could no longer give him the care she thought he needed, and had the strength and courage to transfer him to someone who could. Her dog's wellbeing was very important to her. She has an open invitation to come visit him any time. We would not have found Joanne or Chester without Rescue Me and very much appreciate your website. Larry and Mary LeFever

     Thank you, Jeff, for Rescue Me. The new owners of my dog Greta are very pleased with the adoption. I had about 10 requests, so I had a choice who to pick. I could have not asked for a better couple to care for Chester. He is very happy in his new home which gives me much emotional satisfaction and pleasure. Thanks again, Joanne

     Thank you Jeff for this web site. I had 10 requests for my dog Chester, my 10 month old dachshund red mini. I had a choice who to pick for the adoption. Parting with my dog was difficult, but the new owner was very patient with me before I decided to part with Chester. I know Chester is very happy in his new home, which gives me much satisfaction and peace of mind. Due to my age and health, I could no longer give Chester the life he deserved. It was the right decision for both of us. Thank you so much, Rescue Me. -Joanne

     The day that I found Coco and Monakee on Rescue Me was a great day!!! We have a love affair with Doxies and were not deterred from taking on two at a time. They are eight and ten years old but you would not know it. It has been a month now and they are adjusting well as are we. i did not realize how much we missed having the little hot dogs in our lives. I micro chipped both dogs yesterday because Monakee has gotten out of our yard a couple of times now. She is not good about coming to your command. I hope to take them on a long trip soon as they both love going for a ride. I could not be happier that we were able to give them a loving home and look forward to many years together. Thank you, Rescue Me!

     My husband and I were heartbroken the end of last year with the loss of our little girl Dachshund, River, to heart issues. We had been looking for an opportunity to rescue/adopt another Doxie. We got that opportunity with this little guy. He is the sweetest, cutest thing ever and loves our senior male, Scooby. Thank you so much to Ms. Gwendolyn and Rescue Me for helping to fill that wiener-shaped hole in our hearts!

While in our care, Chewbacca grew from a frightened puppy to a very loving and playful companion. Thanks to the right placement, Chewbacca will get the love and care he needs.

     I found my two new pets on this wonderful website. I searched several states on this website. I found my two pets in another state. The family was moving north and would travel close to where I live. I contacted the previous owner and she agreed to meet me. I fell in love with these two dogs. They are adjusting very well and have made their self at home. My grandchildren live next door and the dogs just love them. I rescued a stray dog before from the streets. He is the best pet I have ever had. I know these two dogs will be too. Thank you, Rescue Me, for this wonderful website.

     I found out about Rescue Me when inquiring about how to find a good home for three dogs. Success for our little girl Reddy (Dachshund)!!! She found a wonderful, loving couple. I asked that they donate to this website. We didn't want to sell her, just to find the right home and we did. I'm hoping for two more success stories with our other two, a dachshund mix and a German Shepard mix.

     The term 'rescue' in this case is definitely an appropriate action for our little Spinelli. He was in a private home where I drove two hours for him. When I arrived, it was evident that he lived in a small carry crate outside. He had a terrible skin rash and a large area on his back and tail that was missing hair. He itched constantly. He also had fleas. We treated him immediately. We also loved him immediately. He literally has a huge smile now. I do not think he was ever walked and he loves to go. I am so thankful for Rescue Me, which led me to this new member of our family.

     Sparky came to us as his owner couldn't keep him. We kept him knowing it would be temporary until we could find a loving full time home for him. Putting off the inevitable for a while, our children becoming close to Sparky and it wasn't making the decision easier. We are a very large and busy family. It is not fair to Sparky or an animal to not be able to devote the time they deserve. A friend told me about Rescue Me, and within 24 hours of posting Sparky's photo and story, he found his forever home. Our hearts hurt as we had grown close to him in this short amount of time, yet we are thankful for this site. We set up the adoption fee to go towards Rescue Me. We hope that others would consider the same.

     Rescue Me is a wonderful site. My son and daughter-in-law brought this pretty little dachshund home about three weeks ago. They were moving out and couldn't take her. I became her foster parent, but am not ready to have a dog right now. She became potty trained very easily and had a wonderful disposition from the start. The six people that adopted Olivia 'Sweet P' had to drive three hours to get here, but they were very determined to get her. Sweet P did not want to leave me, but I am sure she'll bond very quickly to her new family. They did give me money, and I have already donated it to your wonderful service. Thanks so much! -Mary On behalf of Sweet P

     We had been searching for a home for GiGi for months! She had been abandoned at our boarding facility two years ago and had already been returned once before due to a change in circumstance for the adopter. She was a sweet girl that was so well behaved, it was completely frustrating that she was not being adopted! We had her on Petfinder and tried to post her as much as possible, but it was looking doubtful for poor GIGI. Then after only a week on Rescue Me, she got three people who wanted her, all within three days time! It was so amazing to see that sweetheart get so excited to be leaving the kennel! It was my mission to get her adopted, and after so much heart ache to see her have three potential homes. It was so relieving!

     I've been a member of this website for a while, but was in the midst of moving so I was unable to adopt. I closed on my house the same night I logged in and found this little gem. Khalessi is a ray of sunshine to me. In 2011, I lost my black and tan male dachshund due to age. He passed at the age of 18. After losing him, I said I didn't think I could love another Doxie the way I did him. Once I joined Rescue Me, my feelings began to change. Now that Khalessi is here, I know adopting her at this moment was the right thing to do. Adopting a rescued pet means a life saved, and she's so worth it.

     A family with two children came out for a meet and greet with Hans. While I was a little concerned that Hans may be too much dog for children ages five and eight, Hans was great with the children. He seemed to sense they were small and he needed to be gentle. Hans has waited a very long time to find his forever home and the home he did find was well worth the wait. They love him and he loves them. He is young enough, he will grow up with the children and they will be best of buddies. We know little about Hans' background, we rescued him from a kill shelter and he had been picked up running loose. No one came in to claim him. He will have a great life now as a family member. Thank you, Rescue Me!

     We just adopted Buttons. She is a wonderful, sweet, smart, energetic girl. I know her former owners had circumstances that made it impossible to give her the companionship and attention she needs and deserves. My elderly Mother just lost her 15 year old Doxie. She was so unhappy and this little darling has made her smile non-stop! Buttons is now a 'farm dog'. We have acreage and lots of interesting critters for her to get to know. I am so thankful that her former owners love her enough to let her go. It was very hard for them and I truly admire them. Buttons has a forever home, and I am so happy she is part of our family!

     I'm sure no one has had a success story like mine. I had a few people contact me for my baby, Angel. There was one lady that stood out among the others. She and her husband and their son were more than what I expected to find. Angel would be treated just as she was treated at home with me. The only reason I was giving Angel up was I had to move and I could not afford to pay the deposit for having an animal. Stephanie and Robert came to my house to pick her up. As they were leaving, I was crying because I was going to miss Angel so much. About an hour later, I got a phone call from Stephanie saying that she cried all the way home and knew how she would have felt should it have been her baby. She then informed me that they talked it over, and they wanted to pay my deposit so I could keep Angel. They wouldn't take no for an answer. So, I still have my little girl with me and I have met two new friends. They also wanted to update her shots this year and every year. God sent them to me, I firmly believe. Stephanie and I text every day. I now have two new best friends. I love you Stephanie and Robert. Thank you, Rescue Me, for putting us together.

     After finding out that we were expecting our second child in two years, we knew that our beloved dogs needed a new home to get all of the love and attention that they deserve. They really were our first children so this decision was extremely hard. I wanted the adoption to go quickly because it was so painful. When our dog groomer recommended this site, I was nervous at first, but after posting them, I was quickly put at ease as I saw the amount of people looking for dogs to love. After a few screenings, my husband and I found a wonderful couple. The entire process was hard but took four days. I could not be more grateful to Rescue Me for making the re-homing process so easy for my family!

     I am so pleased with my success in finding two doting new parents for my Rascal. I had been looking for a good match for about three months before posting on Rescue Me. Two nights ago, I stumbled across Rescue Me online, posted his information and picture, went to bed. When I woke up in the morning and checked my email, to my surprise, I had a prospect! We made arrangements to meet which required a four hour round trip ride in the car. As soon as we got there, I knew this was just what I had been searching for. Rascal liked the couple and I loved watching him explore their fenced in yard. It was painful to leave him, but I wanted what was best for Rascal. 48 hours later, and I am grateful to the new owners and Rescue Me for helping me find a good home for Rascal.

     Cece was adopted by a very nice family that recently lost their Dachshund to cancer. Their little dog's buddy had become very depressed and lonely with the lost of its friend. The family had a history of adopting dachshunds and chose to find another adoptee to replace their fury family member that they recently lost. We were pleased that they chose Cece.

     We are so pleased with the results of Rescue Me. Our little Theo found the perfect new owner. After only posting Theo's information over the weekend, we were contacted by a wonderful woman that saw his picture. We exchanged information about his needs and her desires as a Dachshund owner, they were a perfect match for each other. This kind woman drove all the way to pick up Theo to give him a new home. We were very excited about where he was going and his new life, not just for him, but also for his new owner too. We had never heard of this website until we started looking for a place to assist us in finding a home for two little Dachshunds. Within days, we have received quality people inquiring about our furry friends that need a good home. We just wanted to say thank you, Rescue Me.

     Cruiser was in need of owners that could spend a lot of time with him. We found the perfect retired couple. If you are honest about the condition of your dog and his/her needs you will eventually find a great fit. Rescue Me made the process as easy as it could be. Much thanks!

     Thanks to Rescue Me, we were fortunate enough to find a young family to adopt Emma and Lucy today. They have two young children and she doesn't work outside the home. They had rescued a Doxie 10 years ago, at age four, and had until she passed away at age 14. They were delighted to get our dogs and I think they will be a good fit for Emma and Lucy. We are happy that they won't have to be crated any longer. They have a doggie door and a securely fenced back yard so the dogs can go in and out on their own. I'm so happy we were able to use this site to help find this family!

     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 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.

And to the family that takes her in. God bless you and enjoy Zuckers unique personality, she is a special girl. I was a rescuer for many years, never thinking I would be in need of one. The true blessing and thanks are in the eyes of the babies you help, and God sees every one of you. Thank you all again. God bless.
