The following list represents some of the things I know about me and what I have learned.
1. I am an adult. I no longer have the desire to chew on EVERYTHING.
2. I let my foster mom know when it is time to go outside for a walk or to potty. I do have kidney disease and may have an accident here and there.
3. I love all dogs, cats and people. I even love my foster sister! I do prefer older kids. I am almost blind and really like a calm home. Not being able to see very well is ok with me. With guidance, I adjust to my surroundings.
4. I love going for walks in my neighborhood park and although I am not hyper, I really enjoy running around a fenced yard.
5. I am quiet. I don't need to bark at everything little thing. I am just fine hanging out in a warm bed on a soft blanket.
6. I am not high maintenance. I don't have to be on the furniture and demanding all of your attention. Of course I will take all the loving you want to bestow on me.
I really am perfect for the family who wants a pet who is relaxed and happy to enjoy life just as it is.
If you are interested in adopting Arrow, you can fill out an application right on our website! Go to dreamhappytails.org/adoptform.shtml . Arrow 's adoption fee is $225. All adoption fees go directly to veterinary care for DREAM dachshunds. Arrow will go to his/her new home microchipped, altered, heartworm tested, and up to date on vaccinations. Most dogs' veterinary expenses are greater than our adoption fees.
DREAM is an all-volunteer rescue group, and we focus on the Atlanta, North Georgia and Savannah area. Because we are all volunteers, we can consider applications only within an hour of these areas. DREAM does not recommend purebred dachshunds for families with children under 5, or families planning to have children during the dog's lifetime. Dachshunds are often not patient with little kids, and kids can accidentally hurt a doxie's back.

Other organizations are rescue groups run by busy volunteers who may take a while to reply.
