Dachshunds are playful, loyal, and fun dogs. They like to chase small animals, birds and balls with great determination. They are smart as a whip and know it! Many Dachshunds are strong-headed or stubborn, sometimes making it a challenge to train. They are known for their devotion and loyalty to their owners.
They love attention and, if left alone for too long, may become bored and whine or find something to chew to relieve stress. They require a caring owner that understands their need to have entertainment, exercise and companionship.
They love to burrow under blankets and would prefer to sleep in their owners bed with them. These little dogs give back ten times the love, if they are properly cared for.
Many rescued dogs have had behavior issues. Some of these rescue Dachshunds have a history of nipping/biting children or have a history of being aggressive with other dogs or cats. We rescue these dogs to prevent them from being euthanized by placing them in a quiet and stable environment.
Please understand that many of these dogs need to be placed in a quiet home without other animals or children, as the case fits. We understand through experience that these dogs should never be left alone or kenneled for more than four hours. When placed in an environment with the attention they need, these rescues feel more secured and loved.
Our goal is to find these rescue Dachshunds a permanent and loving home, the one they have been waiting for.
