Hello my name is Eli. I am a blind double dapple dachshund. I was born blind because of irresponsible breeding, which unfortunately is not at all uncommon in double dapple dachshunds. 

You see life gave me a challenge that some would say is a lemon.  I have made lemonade out of it.   It only took me a day at my foster home to map out the area and I was off and running in the backyard. I love people and other dogs.  My favorite thing is to sit in your lap and snuggle up to my human so I can give doggie kisses.  I love to run in the backyard and explore with my foster siblings.  I am crate trained and tell you when I need to go outside.  My foster mom marvels at how adaptable I can be. I need a quiet home with a fenced backyard, a buddy to keep me company and lots of soft beds, yummy treats, and someone who will allow me to love them. 

Note: Because I am a special needs doxie I am looking for a forever family within 75 miles of the Metropolitan Baltimore DC Area. An exception would be made if you have experience with double-dapple or blind doxies and are willing to drive to Maryland to pick me up.

If you want to know more about me please contact my foster mom Saundra at

Adoption Fee:  $275.00 + $45.00 for a health certificate if going over state lines (required by law).  Dogs adopted in New England are subject to additional rules and regulations by the state departments of agriculture. Complying with these regulations is expensive for our rescue, and all dogs adopted in New England states are subject to an additional $135 fee to help cover a portion of these expenses. 

Transportation Help

If you see a furbaby that is a match for your family, don’t let distance stand in the way of your adoption. LPDR can work with you to have a volunteer transport to assist with transportation or refer you to a paid transport.

About Little Paws Dachshund Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

We strive to make the lives of all dogs better through action, advocacy, awareness and education.

Our Adoption Process...

6 Step Adoption Process

We require:

1) Application - (While we encourage you to let us know on your application if one of our dogs has captured your interest, we use this simply as a guide for matching and your listing of specific dog in no way implies claim to this particular dog)

NOTE: Adoption Applications expire 6 months from the date of receipt. If you have already submitted an Adoption Application and it has been longer than 6 months, you will need to fill out a new Adoption Application.

2) Reference Checks - All references will be checked prior to home visit. We will contact your current vet, if you have one, for a reference.

3) Application Review - Processor reviews the application, calls the vet if you have one, verifies vaccinations and spay/neuter. We email personal references (if email is provided) or call them if necessary. Email is best since as references can respond when they are available.

4) Home Visit - A volunteer will come to your home to visit with you and discuss care of dachshunds. Also, the volunteer will look for any potential problems and check to be sure that your fencing is secure. Your home visit does not mean you have been approved.

5) Approval - After the above steps have been completed all your information will be reviewed and a decision will be made about adoption. If at this point you are approved to adopt, LPDR will help guide you to the appropriate dog for your family.

6) Contract - For the protection of the dogs we place, everyone that adopts a dachshund from LPDR will be required to sign an adoption contract. If you would like additional information on our adoption contract you can email and a copy of our contract will be sent to you electronically.
