Oscar's Story...
Meet Oscar, a 7 year old Dachshund. He is a very sweet, happy and wiggly low rider. Oscar came to us from a rural Tennessee shelter with bad ''ear infections" in the spring. At the end of the antibiotics he was taking, he went back to the vet and found that the "ear infections" were tumors deep within his ear and neck. He soon after got surgery to remove those tumors. After recovering from surgery, he was taken to a Holistic vet who prescribed alternative therapy to reduce any pain he may have and help to stop the growth of the cancer. He has since had a couple more non cancerous masses removed, but Oscar is doing very well at this point that we are hoping to find a forever home for him to live out the rest of his golden years and spend it the way he loves. Oscar loves to sunbathe on the deck, cuddle in bed, and bark to let you know it's dinner time or snuggle time. He wants a home where he can be pampered and sleep with his new owner. For the most part, Oscar is a pretty low energy guy although he does get bursts of energy occasionally. He loves treats and burrowing into blankets. He also loves to explore in the backyard, so he would do best with a fenced in backyard to keep him safe. If you would like to make Oscar a part of your family, apply online today!

All of our dogs come spayed or neutered, fully up to date on vaccinations, including rabies (if age appropriate) and bordetella, are microchipped, heartworm negative, current on flea/tick and heartworm prevention, dewormed, and treated for any ailments found upon veterinary examination. The adoption fee covers a portion of these services, and makes it possible for us to continue rescuing animals.

For more information on the adoption fees and the adoption process, please complete our adoption application here: - an application allows us to get to know your family better so we can assess whether the animal you are interested in is a good match for your home. An application does not obligate you to adopt. You will receive an automated confirmation once your application is successfully submitted. Please understand that due to the volume of applications some animals receive, we are unable to contact all applicants. If your application is considered a good fit for the dog you are interested in, or even a different pet, a volunteer will give you a call ASAP.

We are a foster based rescue and do not have a shelter location where dogs can be seen during the week. Please see our Facebook page at for our weekly adoption album if you are interested in meeting a dog in person. Not all animals attend every adoption event, please check our Facebook page for animal event times and locations before you make a trip to meet a specific animal.

Thanks so much for caring about a needy animal!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Cincinnati 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 Cincinnati 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 Cincinnati paves the way for another one to be saved.
