This beautiful little redhead is Miss Prissy Pinklady. Prissy is a 6 year old sweetie who became a DREAM Dachsie when she and nine other Dachshunds we called the "Grease Gang" were rescued from a breeder who was no longer able to care for them. She gets along fine with other dogs and would do best with a gentle natured male or female. She has spent her entire life being a mama dog, so now it’s her turn to be pampered. Prissy is very skittish to loud noise, but very sweet. She is not one to just sit in your lap, but she does want and loves affection. She will follow you everywhere and is content to sit next you. At night, when it’s time for bed, she will let me to pet and love on her, and that’s about the only time she allows me to freely pick her up.

She lets me bathe her, but I'm constantly reassuring her and talking to her in soothing voice. It takes time to earn her trust but once you do, you can then hold her and show her affection. She likes to snuggle with other dogs and generally has a low energy level. She is not leash trained and is very scared by everyday normal sounds that we are used to outside. These noises send her running for cover. Prissy would do well in a quiet forever home with a backyard, as she loves her time spent in the outdoors. A calm environment with little commotion and no young children would be the best for her.

Our Adoption Process...

Our Adoption Criteria

~ You must be at least 21 years old.
~ We prefer that you live in the greater Houston area, but we will consider your application under certain circumstances. If you live more than 2 hours from Houston, you will need to provide photos of your home and yard (or be able to Skype with us), and you must be willing to travel to Houston to meet the dogs.
~ If you live in a house, you must have a fenced yard.
~ All companion animals must be spayed/neutered, and current on vaccinations and heartworm preventative.
~ You must have the time and money necessary to provide medical treatment, training and proper care.
~ With few exceptions, you must not have children younger than three (3) years old living in your home.

Our Adoption Process

1. You submit an Adoption Application.
2. Our Application Committee will review your Application, and call your vet and your landlord (if applicable).
3. A volunteer will interview you on the phone.
4. A Home Visit will be scheduled to see where your new Dachshund will sleep, eat and play.
5. We all work together to find the right Dachshund for your family. Usually, the dog's Foster Person will bring the dog you're interested to your home for a "Meet and Greet".
6. When you're ready to adopt, you will sign an Adoption Contract and pay the Adoption Fee.
