Have you seen my weiners?
At Dachshunds Only Rescue, we have dogs coming into rescue all the time.  If you have a request for a particular
gender, color, etc, please send me an e-mail.  I'll keep your information and we'll let you know when we have one
that meets your criteria.  Often, our dogs are adopted even before they are posted so speak up if you have a
preference.  We'll do our best to find you your fur-ever friend!!
Available for Adoption
Since our rescued dachshunds are fostered with families anywhere in the valley, we are very considerate as to the
schedules and life styles of our foster families.  Therefore, a volunteer will bring the dog to the home of the
prospective adopter and by appointment only. It is important that all household members, including any other pets,
be home for the initial meeting (as well as any subsequent meetings) since we believe that such decisions should
be unanimous within the family.

Aries:  This beautiful little isabella and tan doxie wound up at our county shelter as a
stray, looking as if he may have been used as bait in teaching larger dogs to fight.
His condition broke my heart, and he was put on the pre-euthanization list due to his
injuries. He has now made a full recovery, has been neutered, and of course he is
UTD on vaccinations. He is loving with people and terrific with female dogs. Male
dogs? Aries is selective. He might have picked the fight he lost...we don't know. What
we do know is that he will test other male dogs, even those 3 times his size, as he
knows he is the toughest guy in the west even if his color is a girly name. However,
verbal reprimand has ceased all confrontations. He is more eager to please his
foster mom and be loved than he is to prove his macho. However, introductions to
other male dogs should be supervised until their jockeying for position has been
settled, and he should be closely supervised, at least initially, if taken to a dog park
or other multi-dog area. We are hopeful that as the testosterone leaves his system,
so will the testosterone impairment to his brain. (just kidding-sort of). Aside for his
wanting to play bully with some males occasionally, Aries is a sweetheart. He loves
people, walks, a ride in the car, belly rubs but his chest is the spot that gets the foot
going, and life in general. He is full of wonder at the world and ready to start his new
life as a forever dog with a family who treats their pets as family members. If your
family isn't a family without a furkid and a gorgeous, unique family member is what
you only hoped to find, please start the adoption process by submitting our
for Aries.

Rocco is a wonderful standard dachshund who was left in a rural county shelter to die
because his human 'had a baby' and didn't want the baby crawling on the floor with dog hair.
I would have been happy to buy her a vacuum, but she didn't ask. Instead, I saved this
wonderful boy from euthanasia. Like many dogs of all breeds, Rocco was afraid in the
county shelter and not real friendly to the staff, but when I went to see him, just a little
common sense went a long way. He knew I was there FOR HIM. I squatted sideways and
called him to me, put my fingers through the fence, but not in a confrontational manner, and
he licked me. Ok, we're out of there! Not without snapping at a member of kennel staff who
did not exercise common sense when attempting to handle him, but no harm was done. His
foster grandma can do just about anything to or with Rocco, but again, she has some dog
sense and doesn't grab or yank on him, which we suspect the new baby may have. We have
not tested Rocco with children, but are recommending only families with older children who
have respect for animals already. With adults, he can be shy at first and takes a little to
warm up. Once warm, he's a lover! A lover with the calmer, more even temperament that
standard dachshunds usually have. Yes, Rocco is a big boy. No skinny mini here, weighing
in at a wonderful 24 pounds. With a standard, you get more dachshund to love. If you are a
little patient and a lot of dachshund lover, please start the adoption process to welcome
Rocco home by submitting our
online application.

Blaze  Looking for a wonderful baby boy? Look no farther. Blaze is just a year and a
half old. He came to us from his prior owner as a result of a divorce, but I can assure
you that Blaze was loved and never ever abused. Although he wasn't well socialized, he
sure caught on to getting lots of attention quickly and has come from being just a little
skittish to liking everyone he meets. Although he has not been exposed to young
children, we believe that due to his young age, if there are respectful young children in
his new home, he will love them too. We have taken Blaze to one public event during
which children approached him in his exercise pen and he was great, going to meet and
welcome them. Typical dachshund that he is, he loved being the center of attention. He
has been crate trained and house trained, but as with many doxies his age, the open
house training will need a little tolerance for the occasional mistake. Blaze was raised
with his littermate sister who has already been adopted and was a little sad when she
disappeared, until we gave him a new companion. He is accustomed to living with
another dog and gets along well with all of the dogs here during open play time. Well
bred,great temperament, well mannered and beautiful, you couldn't ask for a nicer small
standard male.

My name was Zero. Then my family had a baby and the baby pulled my ears and my tail
and was mean and I didn't like that. I became zero. But grandma came along to rescue
me, and said that wasn't right....I'm not NOTHING. Grandma took me home. At first, I
was a stinker. Teehee. And I told grandma that I wasn't broken, but she kept saying that
I needed to be fixed. After I got fixed, I felt broken. How does that work for humans?
But...I learned. I stopped being bossy around male dogs and amorous towards the girls.
This fixed thing is pretty cool, because I'm a lot happier now and I like all the dogs and
they like me too. Grandma says I'm her HERO now, not Zero. I like that as well. I love my
grandma but she says now comes the hard part. She says it's time for me to have a
family of my own. I guess she was right about the getting fixed thing, so here I am,
looking for a family....a little scary but Grandma says I'll be fine...better than fine when I
have my own family who loves me. So, how do you feel about a little slightly scared
fellow who has had a big attitude adjustment? I can promise you that if you give me a
chance, I'll show you just how much love I have to give back and that is a LOT!
Grandma says if you are the right family for me, please submit the
online application
and she'll get right back to you.
