A Bio Update From Bonnie:  updated 11-17

Hi everyone, I'm Bonnie.   I landed at AADR after a small rescue in TN took me in.   They said they wanted me to go to a rescue that knew my breed.   I'm not sure I know what that means, but I'm very happy to be where I am.  

My foster mom is always telling me what a beautiful little dapple girl I am but I am a little shy and I take a little time to warm up to folks, especially men.   But I'm doing better with that!   I love my foster mom and dad and like nothing better than taking a nap in one of their laps or beside them on the sofa.   I don't really like being in the crate.   I want to be with my people or with my furry foster brother & sister!  

I'm working on my leash walking skills and love playing with my stuffed toys.   My foster mom took me to the doctor where they have all these different furry creatures.   She said they were called cats.   Well, whatever they were, I didn't seem to mind being around them.

Some of my favorite things…well, being outside while catching a few rays comes to mind.   Being a southern belle, I enjoy warm weather.   I also like to ride in the car.   With a little more experience and training, I could become your copilot for all kinds of road trip adventures.   That would be awesome.   Because, remember, what I love most is just being with you.

The folks at AADR took me to the vet and made sure I had all my shots and stuff.   They had to remove several of my teeth but that sure doesn’t stop me from eating!   I enjoy small kibble but chewing the big stuff is kinda difficult for me.  

Foster mom keeps telling me about a “happily ever after.”   She said I would one day go to a home where I would stay and be loved forever and ever.   So, I'm looking for that place right now.   Could my happily ever after be with you?

If you have questions or want more info just contact mom at  She will be happy to tell you what a great little girl I am.  I’ll be waiting!

From Bonnie’s foster mom:   Bonnie is a beautiful and special girl who needs and deserves that special family.  

Early in Bonnie’s life she did not receive the love and socialization she needed.   She is just now learning about love and what it means to be a member of the family.   Because of Bonnie’s rough start, she will need patience from whomever adopts her.

Our wish for Bonnie is a home with another dachshund (probably a male doxie would be best) with whom she is comfortable and can help teach her the ropes.  

If you adopt Bonnie and give her time, patience, and love, she’ll reward you with years of love and loyalty!   Here are some things that will be considered in approving a family to adopt Bonnie:


-         A fenced yard.     Bonnie is making progress with her leash training but is not there yet.   She will need continued help.   Because she does not really walk well (yet) on a leash, a fenced yard is a must.


-         Bonnie needs a home with a person(s) that is home most of the time.   Her potty training is still a work in progress.   We believe she has a bit of separation anxiety, she tends to pee when left alone even when she has just gone outside and done her business.     Bonnie needs a regular potty schedule.   She will use a puppy pad and a doggie door if one is available.   It something she can learn, but it is going to take more time and patience.


-         A doggie buddy.   Having a doggie buddy would probably be very helpful in overcoming whatever fears she has and helping her learn the skills she needs.   In her foster home, Bonnie has enjoyed all sizes of pups.


-         Older kids only.   She is timid.   Chasing, reaching, and grabbing would terrify her.


-         No crates.   Because of her previous bad experience with being confined to a crate, Bonnie gets upset when crated.    A gated area or exercise pen would be best for Bonnie.


Bonnie is a great little girl and a love bug.   She LOVES her people and her greatest joy is being near them.   If you have the time, patience and love to give this little one, she is waiting to be your best friend forever.

=============== Information for all dogs/adopters ==============

If you have questions about this dog please feel free to contact the foster home at the email address listed above.  They have the most up-to-date information concerning the dog and would be happy to answer any questions about the animal. 

We welcome out of state and Canadian adoptions, but we will not ship any dog via cargo. You will have to make arrangements to pick up the dog or for them to go by ground transport. If you choose transporting by either volunteers through our organization or by paid transporter, there will be an additional $45 Fee added for the required Health Certificate. 

We will not adopt into the state of CT, RI or MA due to strict laws regarding importation of dogs into those states. If you have an issue with this, you need to take this up with your legislatures.

We are now approved to adopt/foster in the state of NH but adopters will have to pay health certificate fee of $45.00 once to get the dog to our quarantine facility and another $50.00 fee to get the dog out of quarantine after two days.

To understand the adoption process through AADR, please visit the Adoption Information.  Transportation options are outlined on that page in Step 3.

If you are interested in adopting this Dachshund please Read Before You Adopt and then you can complete an Application.


Please don't let the distance stand in your way of finding your newest best friend. We have volunteers that will help your 'new friend' get up and down the East Coast or up and down the West Coast. We just can't get them from one Coast to the other but some day we hope to have enough volunteers to do that as well.  For now, please look for dogs on your coast.



About All American Dachshund Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a non-profit organization that rescues dachshunds from shelters, owner surrenders and fully vets them including dental and heartworm treated if needed and all health issues addressed before they are put on the website to be adopted. We do this due to the fact that there are so many Dachshunds out there that are bred and brought by people that don't know the breed and after they get the dog home and find out after a couple of months that they can't housebreak the dog and it's not good with their kids, they dump the dog in the shelters or if we are lucky they contacts us. Some Dachshund are not so lucky and get shifted to several homes or are sold to puppymills that bred them into the groud.

Come Meet Our Pets...

All of our dogs are in foster homes in TN, AL, LA, KY, AR, AZ, NY, CT, VA, MD, NC, FL, and GA. They can not be seen at any one place but all foster homes are happy to send you additional pictures or answer any questions you may have in regards to their fosters.

You do have to fill out an online adoption application at and we will do a phone interview, check your references and vet and we WILL DO a homevisit no matter what state you are in. To adopt a dachshund you must either have a fenced in yard or ALWAYS keep them on leash. These are hunters and if you allow them to run free they will NOT come back or will be hit by a car or attacked by another dog. When you adopt the dog you are giving a two week trail period and if you feel you need more time we are happy to give that to you if you will notify us. We also make you sign a contract that is a legal and binding contract. Once you put in a application to adopt one of our fosters we will try to get back to you as soon as possible. If you have not heard from us in a week please e mail us as your app may have gotten lost. We also have the right to refuse to adopt to anyone that we feel would not make a good home for our Dachshunds. Please remember these dogs have been in at least 2-3 homes possible more and it could take the whole two weeks for them to adjust and possobly longer.
