Molly is a tiny 'chiweenie', but is mostly doxie. Her former owners were living in a rundown mobile home and could not even afford to feed themselves, much less Molly. Molly was living underneath the trailer and was being fed whatever scraps were available from wherever she could get them. They finally had no other choice but to turn her in at the shelter, but luck was on Molly's side, because our local representative spotted her and rescued her lickity-split. Poor Molly was so starved she'd wolf down every morsel her foster mom gave her when she first arrived. She was dehydrated, skinny, and had dry, flaky skin and was filthy. A bath and proper diet soon remedied the situation.
Molly has been in foster care for about two months. Her fur is now so soft and shiny. She has blossomed into a very playful and fun-loving girl. Her favorite game is 'Wrestle-Mania'. It is obvious to us that she missed out on having a loving puppyhood living under that trailer. She is now enjoying the life she deserved to have in the first place. Molly has learned the dog door and does her business outside most of the time. She wants to please and obey her owner. She does have a bit of separation anxiety and longs for the attention she never got as a puppy.
Molly will be a loving companion for someone with the time to play with her and train her. Folks who work from home or recent retirees would be excellent for Molly. She wants to be with her person as much as possible. She loves to sleep under a blanket like most doxies and really wants to sleep in the big bed, but she will accept sleeping in a dog bed if she can be in the same room with her people. She walks well on a leash and likes car rides.
Molly is current on all vaccines and has been microchipped. She is 90% house trained and improving every day. She gets along well with the other doxies in her foster home. We don't know how she feels about cats, but she has proven herself to be a hunter and a digger.

ADOPTING A DACHSHUNDBecause we love our dachshunds and are committed to finding safe, loving, forever homes for them, we screen our applicants thoroughly before approving an adoption. In order to determine which dachshund is most compatible for your lifestyle, our adoption procedures are as follows:
Fill out an application, which has been designed to determine which of our rescue dachshunds would best suit your needs and experience.
Complete a home check, a time when one of our representatives can visit your home and meet you, the other residents of your home and any other pets that might live with you.
Sign an adoption contract promising to love and care for the doxie for the rest of his or her life, or return the doxie to rescue.
In order to be considered as an adopter, you must be 21 years of age or older, have identification showing your present address and, if you rent your home, have the prior knowledge and consent of your landlord, whose contact information you will be asked to provide. You must also be willing and able to spend the time and money necessary to provide training, medical treatment and proper care for a dachshund. We do not adopt to people who have not spayed or neutered their pets, unless there is a medical need for the animal to remain intact.
We do require an adoption fee, which helps us cover the boarding, vetting, alteration and vaccination of your new pet. Adoption fees also offset the medical needs of the other doxies in rescue, especially vetting for the seniors. Our adoption fees vary, depending upon the age, health and medical needs of each dachshund.
If you have any questions, please email us!
