My name is Charles, but I answer to Charley. I’m a really loving, 10 years-young, frosty faced wire haired dachshund boy. My foster mommy says I’m not really “frosty-faced” it’s more of my coloring. I came to DARE with my son, Bo, who is 7 years old. He is also available, we could be adopted together but we dont have to - we are in separate foster homes now.
I like to lie down in a safe area, but close enough to see what you are doing; I don’t want to miss anything. Belly rubs are to best part of my day, so a home with plenty of belly rubs would be my dream home. Hunting is the other thing I want to do all day; I am a dachshund after all and our breed is well known for our hunting skills. CATS are a big NO-NO for me. I also should not be in a home with other small pets like birds, hamsters, ferrets, etc. And lizards don’t stand a chance with me on guard duty. A well fenced yard is a plus because I really like to explore and hunt the lizards. I LOVE kids, especially ones who like to give belly rubs. I am crate trained and okay with sleeping in the crate, but I really LOVE to snuggle and burrow under the covers in the big bed. I promise NOT to take the whole bed; you can have some space too. ;-)
I'm very afraid of men. I don't bite or even bark, I just run and hide! My foster mommy keeps telling me no one is ever going to hurt me again, but I'm not so sure yet. But if there is a man in my forever home, and he will be patient with me while I learn to trust him, I bet we could learn to be friends.
I really want a forever family of my very own with a fenced yard, maybe some children and as many belly rubs as I can get. If you think I am the perfect addition to your family please fill out at application at www.daretorescue.com. I am being fostered in the Tampa Bay area of Florida.

Even if you do not see a dog that matches what you're looking for, you may fill out a no obligation application and we will work to find a match for you. We receive dogs into foster care almost daily, so it is impossible to have every available or soon-to-be-available dog on the website.
