|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.
Schatzie has been an adored family member since he was an 8 week old puppy, not knowing
an enemy in the world. Unfortunately for his whole family, mom suffered a brain tumor and has
had 3 invasive procedures over the past 4-5 years in attempt to save her life. The result is that
she is now totally disabled and unable to care for herself and Schatzie. Thank God her children
have now grown to an age where they are pretty self sufficient and living their own lives, but
dogs are always dependent upon humans to provide for their needs. Over the past couple
years, other family members noticed that things were changing. Schatzie wasn't getting brushed
out regularly and had become matted to the point he needed to be shaved. He gained weight
because, doing the best she could, his mom free fed him for fear that she might forget to feed
him some days. Once completely house trained and crate trained, nobody was correcting
Schatzie if he made a mistake or tested the house rules. It was time to do what was best for
Schatzie, so his mom's twin sister, who had purchased Schatzie as a gift for her sister,
intervened and convinced his mom that he deserved a family who was more capable of meeting
his needs. When you meet Schatzie, you can tell that he has known nothing but love and was a
loyal companion to his human mom. When he isn't at your side, what does Schatzie like best?
PLAY BALL! Oh my gosh...he has mastered the game of fetch! Don't let his age discourage you
either. He is full of energy and proves it with his ability to outrun two 5 month old puppies who
both have longer legs than he does when it comes to catching that ball. They don't stand a
chance! If the owner had fibbed and said he was 2 years old, I would have believed it. Despite
losing his home and family, Schatzie is a happy loving dachshund. He remembered his crate
training immediately too, so all that will be required is for a new family to remind him that the
potty is on the outside of the doggy door, which he knows how to use. Schatzie is loving and
eager to please....he'll remember in no time with praise for doing it right and mild correction for
mistakes, considering that prior to his mom's illness, he was completely house trained. If you
have room in your heart and home for this wonderful loving boy and enough paper towels for a
few clean ups, please start the adoption process by completing our online application. Note: the
picture attached is how Schatzie looks TODAY, but he had been shaved down and he is not in
"full coat" yet. We DO have a picture of him with his gorgeous long locks available to anyone
who is interested in adopting him.

Puppies love to run and play and explore the world. Charlie is a perfectly normal 5 month old
puppy, and pretty well behaved too, I might add. However, not having raised a puppy in many
years, his owner had forgotten just how much energy a dachshund puppy has and now
realized that it was a mistake to get a puppy that had more energy than the humans in the
household. Although we did not have direct contact with the owner when he took Charlie to the
pound, he did admit his mistake there and hoped that Charlie would find the right home. A
volunteer and "ghost friend" of Dachshunds Only Rescue saw Charlie the night he was brought
in, snapped a pic on her phone, and notified us immediately. We were there when the shelter
opened the following morning, and brought Charlie to a foster home. He passed his vet check
with flying colors and underwent neuter surgery. Now all that Charlie needs is a forever family
and a home of his own. Do you have enough energy to play with this wonderful puppy? Please
