BIO: 
Unfortunately, Scotch seems to have had a rough start.  He came to us as a shelter stray that was in pretty bad shape - BUT with a thyroid test, Thyrozine twice a day and lots of TLC that is all behind him.  He is now a handsome boy and all his hair has filled back in.  We do not know any of his past. He can be shy to start but comes around.  He keeps to himself a lot, BUT loves meal time.  He dances around in delight while his meals are prepared.  He is fine with the other small dogs in his foster home but really does not have a lot of patients for the big dogs.  He has met the kitty’s but really cannot be trusted with them.
Scotch is an extra special boy who deserves that extra special home.  Once he trusts you, you will have a friend FUREVER!

About Furever Dachshund Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Furever Dachshund Rescue (FDR) is a non-profit organization comprised 100% of volunteers located throughout the United States working together to rescue Dachshunds in need of Furever Homes. We are dedicated to the following:

To rescue, rehabilitate and re-home abandoned, neglected and stray dachshunds.
To educated people to succeed as dachshund owners to provide a loving, nurturing home for these wonderful furbabies.
Teach awareness of pet overpopulation, importance of spaying/neutering, vaccinations, euthanasia, puppy mills and the consequences of purchasing as opposed to adopting from a rescue or shelter.
Additional education regarding breed-specific traits, medical issues, fostering, etc.
Respect fellow volunteers within FDR and in the rescue community. Show appreciation for all who volunteer their time and effort to promote teamwork and camaraderie. As a non-paid volunteer group, we know time is valuable and appreciate others who have big hearts and want to help dachshunds in need.

It only takes a few hours on a saturday, mileage is tax-deductible and you will be making a huge difference in a dachshunds life.
