This pretty little girl with a waggy tail is Lexi San Lucas. Lexi was recently placed into bite quarantine at a shelter. Her owner (supposedly a breeder) took Lexi to the dollar store and left her in the car with windows down. Lexi jumped out, (thank goodness she didn't get hurt) and tried to follow the lady into the store. When an employee bent down to grab for Lexi, she panicked and bit him. They called animal control and poor Lexi had to spend 10 days in quarantine. The fee to get her out was $150 plus $10 for a rabies shot. The owner declined to pay the fees, and while signing Lexi over to the shelter, she mentioned matter-of-factly that she had bred Lexi, so she might be pregnant; and with her last litter, she'd only had three puppies.

This seven year old sweetheart was covered in fleas If she is expecting, she doesn't appear that far along so we'll be keeping and eye on her to see if her belly begins to grow. In the mean time, she's going to get a lot of TLC from her foster family!

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.
