Meet Tristan, a black & tan standard male dachshund. He's ~3 years old and weighs ~19 lbs. He can be a little shy at first, but once he warms up, then he's all love and kisses. Patience and kindness are key for him. He had a bit of a rough start in life and is now enjoying the comforts of his new foster home where he's learning all about good manners for leash walking & crate training. Tristan is super smart and thoroughly enjoys the company of other dogs. He would definitely do best with a canine companion.

Tristan can not go to a home with children - their quick movements frighten him too much and he will unintentionally snap out of fear. He needs a calm home that provides him guidance and boundaries without anger.

If you are interested in adopting Tristan, you can fill out an application right on our website! Go to . Tristan 's adoption fee is $400. All adoption fees go directly to veterinary care for DREAM dachshunds. Tristan 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.

About DREAM Dachshund Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

We envision a time when every dachshund in Georgia has a loving home for its entire life. We believe that the welfare of our companion animals is an indication of the health of our society. We see the current welfare of our companion animals as a disease. To treat the symptoms of this disease, we rescue, rehabilitate, and rehome dachshunds in need. To treat the causes of this disease, we educate the public on compassionate dog guardianship of any breed. We want to have a deep, direct impact in a limited geographic area, rather than a small impact in a large geographic area.
