Thank you for your interest in adopting a Dachshund through our Rescue. All Dachshunds placed through our organization have received a full medical exam, been spayed or neutered, and are up to date on all of their immunizations. Additionally, each Dachshund receives a microchip that’s registered with the National Dog Registry to LVHDDCR.
We generally have many dogs available at any given time. We have puppies available on rare occasions. We suggest that if you wish to have a very young puppy that you give it serious thought before adopting. A young puppy is not for everyone. We often receive young Dachshunds from homes that did not fully research the advisability of acquiring a puppy. Do not buy a puppy from a pet shop as you may be supporting a puppy mill by doing so. Our club and rescue does not condone puppy mills or puppy stores.
Our available Dachshunds generally range in age from 1 to 15 years old and range in color. We will ask you for your preferences in sex, color, coat and personality but cannot stress enough the importance of seeking a dog whose personality and needs will match the environment you can provide. As we take in the dogs we evaluate the dogs to see what their personality is and what home environment they would best be suited for. Our main priority is for the dogs needs. We try to find the best match for each dog.
You have already taken the first step in the adoption process by indicating your interest in a rescue dog. We ask that you have patience throughout the adoption procedure. We run on volunteer basis alone and do not have the man power to keep up with the demand.
