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: Damon

Location: Bensalem, PA

Adoption Fee
: $150
 
Damon is a happy, active boy, who loves his people! He's 10 years old and weighs 15 pounds. But note that Damon was very much overweight when he was left in a kill shelter! He has been eating the right amounts of quality canine kibble at his foster home and has lost a whopping 9 pounds! The transformation is amazing.

It seems that Damon has a bit of Chihuahua in his mostly doxie body. His ears are long but do not stay flush to his face. He's a beautiful dilute red color.

Damon gets along with the dogs in his foster home, but he does not like to share his food. He enjoys toys, taking a walk, is affectionate, loving with his people. Most of the time he's chill, content just to hang out. He'd make a great companion for someone who enjoys the same!

Name: Boss

Location: Central NC

Adoption Fee
: $250
 
Hi! My name is Boss & I am as handsome as they come! I am a red smooth tweenie dachshund — and the ladies in my foster home all swoon over me (my foster mom insists it is not because I am the only male dog in the midst of 4 female dachshunds). When I was surrendered my owners said I was 2 years old but the vet thinks I am more like 3-4 years in age — but age is just a number and I am here to tell you I have LOTS of year left ahead of me to slather my new family with love.

 I was rescued from Tennessee in March where my owner turned me and my brother in, but that's OK because we are both safe now.

Don't let my name fool you, I am not Bossy at all, I am currently living with a few girls and I am having a great time chasing and romping with them, I spend my time napping and I really like shredding the fuzzy toys my foster mom has. I also enjoy chasing and stealing a hand ball from one of the girls too. I love to explore when going on walks, loud & strange noises still get me a little scared but I get through it and keep on! I go in my crate by myself now and will sleep through the night..I guess I'll just do what the others do, its not so bad after all! I'm still shy around new people and small children are a mystery but I am curious and like to smell & lick them. But I'm not crazy about being picked up, I get nervous, maybe I'm afraid of heights? I know big dogs scare the heck out of me, but I think I could adjust just fine!

I am really a happy boy and would love to find a permanent lap to keep warm and lead you on our walks one day! Could you be my new family? I would prefer a home with only older children and would love to have another dachshund or smaller dog to keep me company. I am neutered, current on all of my vaccinations and looking for love!

Name: Chip

Location: Andalusia, PA

Adoption Fee
: $225
 
Say hello to chocolate Chip! This little guy is so happy to be in rescue after some very tough times.

Chip is a doxie/min-pin. He is 6 years old and weighs 12 pounds. He can be quite a shy boy until he gets to know you. He's quiet, gentle, easy with his people.

Chip is fine with all the dogs in this foster home -- except when it comes to sharing food. Chip can be quite aggressive then. He'd be best as an only dog for that reason. Chip had surgery to repair a torn ACL. He is all healed and is doing fine now.

Chip really enjoys playing with toys! If you're looking for a laid back friend to hang out with, Chip just may be your boy.
If you want to shower this boy with toys, 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: Oswald

Location: Bensalem, PA

Adoption Fee
: $125
 
This handsome red dapple is Oswald. In spite of some hard times, he's a happy boy full of doxie personality.

Ossie found himself in a shelter where he was left, supposedly as the result of a divorce. What a thing to happen to a sweet older guy. And he was allowed to become quite a bit overweight, yet, he still hasn't let it get him down.

Oswald has been losing weight in rescue, which has left him looking and feeling much better. He's currently 11 years old and 18 pounds; he should be about 15 pounds when he's back to his boyish figure. In the meantime, he's a pleasant boy who gets along with everyone.

Oswald has a good amount of spunk too; he enjoys playing with toys, loves the squeaker and doesn't take them apart! He'll make a great companion for someone who loves doxie fun and chilling too.
If you want to chill with Oswald, 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: Arbor

Location: Central NC

Adoption Fee
: $150
 
Arbor landed herself in a rural NC shelter that, in addition to being without air conditioning, is a high-kill shelter. Given the fact that Arbor is estimated to be 10 years old and was greatly overweight — her chances at making it out alive through adoption were non-existent. A transporter stepped up, along with many sponsors, to see Arbor out of the shelter and into her foster home!

Arbor has already seen so many heroes in such a short time but she is hoping to find her real angel who steps up to give her a happy-ever-after! Arbor is a solid black standard dachshund that is a little bit of a diamond in the rough. She is about 6-7 pounds overweight but is now on a healthy diet and is starting to shed the pounds to find her girlish figure. Arbor is house trained and well passed her puppy days of chewing up things in the house! She is seeking a recliner where she can relax and hang out (either in the lap of her new owner or just hang out until her owner returns from work). Arbor is great meeting new people but we suspect that she has been abused at some point in her prior life as she gets defensive when someone makes fast movements and she thinks she might be in danger. Otherwise, Arbor is a total mush wanting nothing more than the love and devotion of her new adopters. Arbor would love a fenced yard where she could poke around or someone who likes to walk. Due to Arbor’s fear of fast movements it would be best for her to go to a home with children 8+ years. She does well with other dogs (so long as they are okay with her being a little bossy) and would be fine with a dog-friendly feline.

Are you looking for a calm presence in your day to bring you love and adoration — Arbor is your girl! Spayed, heartworm negative, current on vaccinations and ready to go to her new home! Local applicants are preferred but all applications are reviewed. Adopters will be required to travel to Arbor’s foster home to adopt so that should be taken into consideration.
If you want to bring this amazing girl into your family, 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.

Delia is a pretty doxie mix girl who’s had some tough times in her little life. Five years, 13 pounds, very much a doxie with some longer legs! Delia has been bounced around a good bit since being plucked from the shelter just in time. She traveled a good distance to get to her foster home.

It took a little longer, but now foster dad is a favorite as well. Delia will make a nice companion for a doxie savvy owner who is willing to give her some space, allow Delia to come forward at her own pace, so she can feel secure, loved, know what a real home is all about. Delia is full of doxie personality, and she loves to play with toys!
