Facts about Adoption pending - Milo2

  • Breed: Dachshund
  • Color: Red/Golden/Orange/Chestnut
  • Age: Senior
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 9338317-20151178

Milo is a sweet 12 year old gentle soul.  He is looking for a family that loves older dogs and will understand that he is an old fella with difficulty seeing and hearing.  Milo walks around the house quite a bit, but will lay by your feet if there is a blanket on the floor.  He also loves to snuggle on the couch with you.  

Like many seniors, Milo may not see or hear very well, but gets around great.  He gets along with other dogs but, would be happy to be the only dog or share his forever family with another senior dog.  Milo has a comfy crate available to him, but he prefers to relax on a soft dog bed.  He will “make his bed” on his dog bed while giving a few gruffs while getting settled.  He sleeps the night through and does not need a bathroom break.

Milo likes to be where you are. If you move out of his sight, he will let out a soft, deep, throaty “frog” bark.  Because of his limited eyesight, Milo is not good with steps. He can manage one-step like a door step, but cannot go up and down porch or deck steps so needs to be carried up and down. 

Milo enjoys hearing his name said out loud, and wags his tail to greet you at the door when you come home or when he wakes up.  

If you are looking for quiet, low maintenance elderly dog, who needs patience with his potty training, and have a one level home with one step or less, for Milo to live out his life quietly and calmly, then Milo is your pup.

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.
