BIO: Hello everyone, my name is Ralph! I currently live in a wonderful foster home in Vermont, but I am looking very forward to finding a Fur-Ever Home to call my own. I was found in Georgia when I jumped into a nice lady’s car. They looked around to see if I had an owner, but since I didn’t have any identification tags, they were unable to find anyone. They wanted to keep me, but they didn’t have a fenced in yard and felt that I would be better off if turned over to All American Dachshund Rescue to find me the perfect home.
I am an extremely playful puppy that is full of so much energy. I enjoy having a fully fenced in yard that I can run and run in to burn off all my energy (and you’ll appreciate it as well as it helps me sleep better at night).
My foster dad says that I am a Dachshund mix. I’m not sure what that means, but he says I have Miniature Pinscher in me and that’s why my legs are longer. Either way, he says I am very adorable. My ideal new home would have other dogs that like to play with me. I get along with most dogs, as long as they remember I might be smaller than them. I do very well in my crate and quickly settle in and sleep all night without making a peep. If you want me to, I will sleep very well on the big bed with you all curled up next to you. I go on walks really well on a leash. When it’s feeding time, I am really good, and tend to stand on my back legs and dance. I really like other people and meet everyone with tail wagging. I don’t bark often, but when I do, I have a very loud voice. If you live in an apartment, I have to warn you that I might be too loud and get you in trouble.
If you have any other specific questions about me, please contact my foster parents and they will be happy to talk to you about me. If you’re looking for a great addition to your family, please consider ME. I promise to put a smile on your face every day!
=============== 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.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST IN A RESCUE.
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.
