Why are there so few dogs available?

Almost Home Dachshund Rescue Society members may have more dogs available for rescue than those featured on the site. Often, as soon as a dog enters foster care and is evaluated and provided necessary veterinary care, it moves immediately to a forever home that was pre-approved and just waiting for him or her to become available. Please note, all dogs are spayed/neutered unless otherwise noted.

We encourage you to please complete our online adoption application so members are aware of who you are and the specific kind of dachshund in which you are interested. We can then begin your approval process and let you know, when the right dog is rescued, that s/he is waiting for you!

Of course, this doesn’t mean you shouldn’t continue to watch this site for new arrivals, as often the dog we think we are waiting for is very different from the one with whom we fall in love!

New! Please consider sponsoring one of our available dogs! Read more info here.
If you sponsor a dog and forget to include the name or any notes in the message area, please feel free to contact our webmaster to update the page correctly.

Name: Santo

Location: Bensalem, PA

Adoption Fee
: $390
 
Youngster Santo is anxiously awaiting his forever home. At one year old and 11 pounds, Santo still has some puppy in him.

He's sweet, affectionate with people, and likes to cuddle up, often with a human on one side and another dog on the other.

Santo can be pushy with other dogs in a puppy way; if they object, he squeals and runs away.

Santo is athletic and has lots of energy. He needs doggie stairs so he won't jump and work on his potty training.

As you can see from his nose, Santo does not like to be crated.

He needs a home where his humans have time to spend with him, show him the ropes. Santo sure will capture your heart!
If you want to capture his heart, please contact his foster mom and complete an adoption application online indicating your preference. If you have never adopted through a rescue organization before, please read Adopting Through AHDRS.

This tiny doll is Mavis! She weighs 6 pounds and is 8 years old. She's just as sweet as can be, so loving, and affectionate.

Name: Princess and Stella

Location: Bensalem, PA

Adoption Fee
: $475
 

Our adorable duo of Princess and Stella is ready for their forever home together!

They are sweet, friendly girls, who get along with everyone. Princess is 9 years old and Stella is 5. Both were surrendered to a shelter obese, 23 and 31 pounds, respectively. The girls have come a long way and are looking and feeling so much better. Their new owners must be on board with their continued weight loss, feeding the proper amount of high protein adult kibble.

Both girls have had recent dentals. Princess had mammary tumors removed. They have good potty skills.

The girls enjoy outdoor time, sunbathing, rolling in grass, cuddling with other dogs and their humans.

They love belly rubs!

Princess and Stella are really good girls. They are best friends and must stay together. They do have lots of love to share with their new family.
If you want to give plenty of belly rubs to the girls, please contact their foster mom and complete an adoption application online indicating your preference. If you have never adopted through a rescue organization before, please read Adopting Through AHDRS.

Name: Porter

Location: Alexandria, VA

Adoption Fee
: $275
 
Check out handsome Porter. He is 8 years and 16 pounds of chocolate doxie!

Porter loves attention. He's a happy, affectionate boy. He likes other dogs and plays with a buddy in his foster home, and loves being out in a fenced yard. He is alpha, wants to be top dog, so needs a non-alpha buddy or can be an only dog with a good amount of attention, closeness.

Porter has good potty skills. He's a smart boy, who is good at learning and deserves his own family!

If you want to be Porter's family, please contact his foster mom and complete an adoption application online indicating your preference. If you have never adopted through a rescue organization before, please read Adopting Through AHDRS.

Name: Grace and Frankie

Location: North Carolina

Adoption Fee
: $300
 
Grace and Frankie were rescued from a rural shelter where they had been surrendered as strays. Grace, a red 10 year old miniature, and Frankie (her best friend), a 12 year old black and tan piebald have obviously spent much of their life together as the best of friends and we hope to see them go into a new life together.

Grace is mischievous and silly — more outgoing than Frankie. She gets along well with other dogs and seems to ignore cats. Grace has been diagnosed with Cushings but her only symptom at this time is excessive thirst and accidents. We have started some natural supplements for Cushings and a special diet in hopes we can control her Cushings symptoms without adding in medication. Due to the Cushings, sweet Grace needs some patience with her house training. We are hoping in time her accidents will lessen. Frankie is a bit more reserved with her love but very content to lay in your lap or go whenever you go. Frankie also couldn’t be bothered with cats and seems fine with other dogs. Frankie is house trained and also pee pad trained. Both of these girls would love a home where they can go on walks or run in a backyard — and come inside to snuggle! Both Grace and Frankie love everyone they meet though they seem a little bit intimidated by little humans…so a home with only 6+ year old children would be best. Grace and Frankie are crate trained and leash trained — and are ready for a home that will not judge their age and recognize the love they have left to give!

Grace and Frankie have both been spayed, vaccinated and microchipped — and both received significant dentals when they came into rescue. A local home is preferred but all adopters will be considered. Grace and Frankie will not be put on a transport so any adopters should be willing to travel to adopt the girls from their foster home.

If you want to bring this sweet pair home, please contact their foster mom and complete an adoption application online indicating your preference. If you have never adopted through a rescue organization before, please read Adopting Through AHDRS.

Name: Molly & Sherman

Location: Bensalem, PA

Adoption Fee
: $675/pair
 
This absolutely darling duo is looking for a forever home together. They are red dapple
Molly (1 year old and weighs 10 pounds) and blue Sherman (5 years old and weighs 9 pounds). Both are so very sweet, quiet, gentle and will surely steal your heart.














Molly has KCS -- Keratoconjunctivitis Sicca in her left eye. KCS occurs when not enough tears are made to keep the eye lubricated. Molly has eye drops. She can see from both eyes.

Sherman was rescued from a breeder. His ears are straggly, supposedly from being chewed by dogs in the kennels next to him. He lost several of his front teeth during his dental. Sherman eats fine and is still so very handsome!

Molly and Sherman get along with other dogs, cats and love people. They'd really enjoy a home where they can get lots of attention from their humans. Because of their size, no small children. Molly and Sherman are cuddly, love lap time and burrowing in the big bed. They are very special doxies, and are both amazingly wonderful.
If you're interested in adoptin the pair, please contact their foster mom and complete an adoption application online indicating your preference. If you have never adopted through a rescue organization before, please read Adopting Through AHDRS.

Name: Gretchen

Location: Bensalem, PA

Adoption Fee
: $250
 
Miss Gretchen is a 2-year old doxie/min pin, who weighs 13 pounds. She has a doxie face, nose, ears, and even body, but she is long-legged.

Gretchen came into a southern shelter so scared, and obviously not socialized. It has taken her some weeks to learn not to be frightened of her foster mom. She is still quite shy with strangers.

Gretchen is amazingly sweet. She loves other dogs, enjoys running and playing in the yard, and even likes the snow!

Gretchen enjoys running and playing in the yard with the other dogs, and even likes the snow! And she loves to cuddle up on top of a cozy quilt. She can be protective of her spot with the other dogs.

Gretchen is very quiet. A calm home with one or two adults would be best. A fenced yard best for Gretchen so she can get to know her new family on her own terms.  Her new family will need to be prepared to offer Gretchen patience, understanding, and lots of TLC.

Gretchen is amazingly sweet. She loves other dogs, enjoys running and playing in the yard, and even likes the snow! A home with another playful dog is a must for Gretchen.

If you feel you can open up your heart and home to this tender soul, please contact her foster mom and complete an adoption application online indicating your preference. If you have never adopted through a rescue organization before, please read Adopting Through AHDRS.

Name: Harmonee

Location: Bensalem, PA

Adoption Fee
: $225
 
 

Harmonee is a min pin/doxie mix, who is 5 years old and 14 pounds.

Harmonee had a very tough time before rescue. She was on her own and found pregnant. Unfortunately, her babies died before birth and Harmonee had a terrible infection. She is, thankfully, all better now!


Harmonee is quite shy with strangers, needs a few days to feel comfortable in a new place. Then she's a character, funny and bright, loves to cuddle under blankets. A quiet home is best for Harmony,  though she'd enjoy a doggie friend to play with. She likes to pile toys in her doggie bed and often steals her foster mom's shoes for bedtime! She doesn't chew or hurt them in any way.

Harmonee so deserves the best forever home where she can be a pampered pup!
If you'd like to pamper Harmonee, please contact her foster mom and complete an adoption application online indicating your preference. If you have never adopted through a rescue organization before, please read Adopting Through AHDRS.
