Hi!  My name is Hope, but my foster mom calls me Miss Daisy.  I’m a senior enjoying retirement.  If you enjoy quiet and peaceful days at home, then I’m your gal. I’m low-key and low-maintenance.  I’m not much of an outdoors girl…..I’m out long enough to do my business and then it’s back inside and under my blanket for a long nap.  My dog pal Tex tries to entice me to go along with him to visit his groundhog and rabbit friends….although a little curious, a few steps in the backyard is all I care to take.  I do enjoy sunbathing in the warm sunlight on the deck, happy to leave the yard shenanigans to the young pups.  My foster mom carries me up and down a long flight of stairs to the back yard….I guess I’m helping her get into shape because she says after all is said and done, she’ll have buns of steel….I assume that’s a good thing.  There are two occasions….breakfast and dinner….where I get a little frisky and can be found running around. My foster mom says I’m a chow-hound.  I have a hearty appetite and enjoy frozen green beans and watermelon as treats. I’m perfect for the leisure-loving human.    If you want to know more about me please contact my foster mom, Kelly, at

Adoption Fee:  $150.00 + $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...

Little Paws Dachshund Rescue is a non-profit animal rescue that specializes in finding permanent homes for dachshunds. It is LPDR’s goal to identify abandoned, mistreated, or homeless dogs and oversee their treatment and wellbeing while working to find loving owners for those in our care. 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.
