FranklinStein is a miniature, black and tan short haired boy with high energy, high prey drive, and loves his toys!  Please no cats, small kids, or other small critters.  Franklin is ok with most female dogs, preferably one that can match his positive energy levels!  FranklinStein hates the vet, we think he can tell when he’s going to see a vet and gets cranky about it, so he snaps at the techs/vet. He has had to be muzzled for his vet visits.  He really is a good boy.  He's afraid of thunderstorms and gets anxious when over-stimulated, otherwise, once comfortable with you he's a playful, loving, silly boy.  Once he trusts a person he'll give kisses, jump in your lap and loves to play rough.  He is the perfect loving hard headed little buddy!  He’s all vetted, ready to meet a person who has a strong personality and is an experienced dachshund parent.

About Diamond Dachshund Rescue of Texas

About Our Rescue Group...

Diamond Dachshund Rescue of Texas is an all volunteer group in the heart of Texas that is dedicated to the health, welfare and happiness of our dachshund friends. We are based in San Antonio, Texas but we have fosters/volunteers in Austin, San Angelo and DFW areas. We are a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization. As such, we must rely heavily on donations and contributions to be able to pay the costs of health care, administrative needs, and other necessary expenses for each of our dachshunds. Diamond Dachshund has rescued, rehabilitated and placed approximately one hundred dachshunds each year since our incorporation in 1998. That's a lot of happy, healthy dogs and equally happy families! We strive to find the right home for each dog's individual personality and needs, so that the placement is permanent and both the dogs and the humans who adopt them, are equally happy.

Our Adoption Process...

Current Adoption Fee $ 225.00 per dog, discounts for bonded pairs or senior/special needs dogs or previous adopters from DDRTX.

Adoption application, reference checks and home visit required for adoption approval. Previous pets must have been kept up to date on vaccinations, be spayed or neutered, AND kept on heartworm prevention. Application can be found on our primary website on the "Available Dogs" page.
