Facts about Birdie

  • Breed: Dachshund Mix
  • Color: Red/Golden/Orange/Chestnut
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Female
Birdie is 9 pounds of love. She is very sweet and walks great on a leash. I named her Birdie because of her cute little beak shaped nose. This beautiful girl was taken in as a stray and adored by the man that found her. He did everything he could to find her people,but no luck. She had a horrible flea allergy that caused her to lose most of her hair. He took it upon himself to begin the healing process and during this time, fell in love with her(easy to do). Sadly, his tiny female Yorkie was not going to have it. She was a daddy's girl, and didn't want to share. He reached out to me to see if I could find this adorable pup her forever home.

Now, the story of her little friend Biscuit. A few weeks ago,a small Chi/Pom mix puppy showed up in our neighborhood. The neighbors asked if I would take her in and try to find the person who lost her. I've done everything I can and still,no response to post on lost/found sites and no signs anywhere. Long story short, Birdie and Biscuit are besties! They walk,play and sleep together. If possible, I would love for them to stay together however it's not a deal breaker.

About Wet Noses and Wagging Tails

About Our Rescue Group...

We are the voice for the innocent dogs and cats who are in need of our assistance. Many of the animals have been abused/neglected. Many have owners who simply "dump" them. Many are found roaming the streets, and we don't ever know what their stories really are. We are not for profit and STRICTLY no-kill. Much of our energy is dedicated to special needs animals, those who are crippled, injured,or suffering from various illnesses. However, our goal is to help ANY animal in need. We have been saving lives for 13+ years. Wet Noses and Wagging Tails is truly all about the animals. Thanks to our wonderful fosters and our constant networking, we are able to get the animals to safety, and ultimately to loving homes where they go on to live the lives they should have been living all along!

Come Meet Our Pets...

Please request our Wet Noses and Wagging Tails adoption application. Reference the pet you are interested in meeting. We will review your questionnaire and then contact you to set up a meet/greet. Please understand that many of our animals are in foster homes so pet introductions are done by appointment only!

Our Adoption Process...

All adopters must complete an adoption application. Home and reference checks are required. Many of the doggies will require a fenced yard, and if this is the case, a fence check is ALWAYS completed. If the application is approved, there is a contract explaining the expectations required of you as an adoptive parent. Wet Noses and Wagging Tails selects the family we feel will be the best fit for our pets.This helps to ensure our animals and families will be happy together! If your application is not approved, or approved and not selected for the animal you're interested in, please understand. We know the personalities and habits of each of our rescue pets, and they all have certain needs. We sometimes have other pets we will suggest, that may be a better fit. Our number one priority is to assure the safety, happiness and overall welfare for these homeless souls. There will be a fee for each adoption. These donations go directly back into the rescue to help offset the expenses we incur taking saving the animals. We also offer a sponsorship program that allows a healthy dog, upon adoption, to help one of his/her furry friends that has special needs or chronic illness.
