Red's Story...
Red is a gorgeous boy, G.O.R.G.E.O.U.S. Only about 12 pounds and about five years old, he is looking for love after having been surrendered by his person of five years.

We cannot say for sure what Red's life was like before he was brought to the shelter, but we can tell you that he is somewhat afraid to be touched by people. There's not a mean bone in his body, he's just not sure what people want with him. Gut feeling??? He was probably a breeder that was kept in a kennel/crate his whole life until it was time to bring in younger blood.

Red is learning very quickly from the other dogs in our foster home what it means to be loved and have a blast with people. He is crate trained and does OK on leash though it is obviously a new concept for him.

If you have a heart for dachshunds and don't mind giving your love and patience to a boy that has been deprived of this joy for a very long time, then please give this boy a chance.

You can find out how to start the process by continuing to read here or reading through the Adoption Process page of our website -

All potential adopters are expected to complete an application and provide pictures of their yard, patio, and/or balcony making sure we can see the fence line and/or railing. The application can be completed and submitted from our website - - and is found under Resources. Applications will be reviewed for approval before setting an appointment to come meet and possibly adopt the dog of interest. In addition, those who live in a rental property are expected to provide proof that they are allowed to have a dog where they live.

Each of our rescued dogs has been de-wormed if necessary, de-flea'd (with topical treatment if old enough, and by medicated bath if too young), spayed/neutered, microchipped, is up to date on shots, and has been fully examined by a veterinarian. In addition, each adopted dog comes with a starter baggie of the food it has been eating, a few treats for training purposes, a rawhide chew, a lead and collar, and a folder containing pertinent records.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Red, a Oakley Dachshund dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Dachshund for sale in Oakley, or seeking a Dachshund dog from a breeder in Oakley.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Oakley already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Oakley breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Dachshund breeders who help with Dachshund rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Oakley paves the way for another one to be saved.
